For your consideration…

We have had messages reminding us about how misleading posts and messages can be on social media. Many disagreements have resulted. This is because communication is incomplete. It is missing body language. Without body language, we do not know if the words match the emotion and spirit of the words.

Body language offers the clues that complete the message. With body language, we have a better sense of is it true, sincere? Body language is often the first clue of distress, anger etc.

Our message today reminds us the importance of body language. It also gives us a fun exercise. People watch. Find a place and watch. Watch the body language and figure out the “mood, attitude, emotions etc. I often laugh about being at boat launches and how fun it is watching people there. But we can people watch anywhere; shopping, in parks, schools, driving, beach, movie theater, etc. This is a fun exercise and it is good practice.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.


Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…

-Affirm…“I am loved.”

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Hone up on our body language skills.


What made me smile yesterday…
