For your consideration…

Sometimes everyone seems to have an opinion on what we should or should’ve done. And vice versa, we probably have lots of ideas for them as well. It is the same whether it is home, friends, work, neighbors, strangers, the world, etc.

The thing is no one can no all of our circumstances, our filters, life experiences, etc. that shape our decisions and we can not know theirs. Indeed, there is a lot that is put in front of us that we don’t completely understand. This is life.

So as we think about this, we are asked to consider…once again…suspending judgement for ourselves and others. It is a waste of our time and energy which is much better spent in doing all that we can do to make the moment we are in all that it can be.

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?”

-Follow the words you are given. It is the best you can do. It is what you are meant to do.

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Suspend judgment.


What made me smile yesterday…

-A beautiful day.

-The weather was perfect for Fran’s shower.

-Lots of her friends and family showed up for the great occasion.

-Lots of help with cleanup.

-A good new book.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,
