For your consideration…

It happens to all of us. We hit “overload.” Work, emotions, home environment, family, relationships, holidays, etc. Any one and certainly a combination of any of them can throw us into overload.

What are the signs of overload? I often compare personal overload to mercury retrograde. Communication is difficult. Sometimes we don’t want to communicate at all. Or we fumble tasks, even simple ones, ones we have done hundreds of times. Or,,,we feel close to tears, sometimes warranted but even over trivial things. We want to procrastinate, then fret that we have done so. ETC.

Again, it happens to all of us. Our message today asks us to notice. Suspend judgment. Be gentle with ourselves. It is ok to shut down and take a step back to take care of ourselves and reground. In fact, it is necessary.

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?”

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

-Drink lots of water.

-Take care of overselves.


What made me smile yesterday…

A beautiful day.

-Lots of fun, great food and company with family and friends.

-A good book.

-Catching up with Mary.

-My friend, Kathy, made it back home.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
