Being My Best Self | HeartFirst Education

For your consideration…

All too often we think we are in competition with others. We try to be better than them.

Our message today tells us that this is wrong thinking. The only competition we have is with ourselves. Our only challenge is too be the best version of ourselves that we can be. Just as we can not be better or a better version of someone else, they can not be a better version of us. Our challenge is to try to be a better self in this moment and the next and the next. Our challenge is to learn and grow mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Our job is to be the best person we know how to be, trusting and knowing that we can and will still be better with each moment. And that is enough no matter what anyone else is doing.

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.

-Challenge ourselves. Compete against ourselves, not others.


What made me smile yesterday…

-A chill day.

-Catching up with Jackie.

-A good book.

-A new tree trimmer.. HOPEfully this one is dependable.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
