For your consideration,..

“On the flip side.” “Walk in my/your shoes.” “The other side of the fence.” “Seeing through different filters.” “Two side to every story.”

We have the power to do all of these things. The only thing preventing us from getting a different perspective is our ego. No one is always right. More often than not. no one is completely right. And no one is right all of the time.

It costs us nothing to listen and try to see a different perspective, to change our view. We are entitled to gain insight and grow.Where would the world be if everyone tried to understand each other from their point of view?

Today we are asked to simply set the intention to try to see and hear from a different vantage point. Step out of our comfort zone. Step beyond our ego. Step beyond our fear.

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.”

-Remember…You are the keeper of the light. Wherever you go, there can be no darkness.

-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.

-Set the intention to see other perspectives.


What made me smile yesterday…

-A fun beach day.

-Young people are so brave. At the beach I met a girl from Egypt who has been traveling for 13 months. A girl from Wisconsin. A girl from Boston traveling in all of the coastal countries in Central America. All were learning to dive.

-Catching up with Jackie, Alex, and Mary.

-Don’s struggles are over and he is at peace.

-A great dinner at a favorite restaurant.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,
