For your consideration…..

How we feel about this message is probably how we felt about school as children. Because like then, we must go to school whether we like it or not. Whether we want to continue our studies or not is not an option. We are students. We always have been and always will be because we are here to learn and grow.

In this life we have a curriculum personalized just for us. We work pretty much at our own pace. But if we fall behind we will get a push or extra homework. If we fail a lesson, it will be presented to us again… probably in a new situation… but we will get it again and again until we learn it.

Each day in any given situation we are learning and teaching. We have a choice. We always have a choice. We are being asked to choose to be an enthusiastic, creative and loving student filled with joy and ready to learn, participate and share.  It will make our journey so much easier.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.


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

-Meditate. Go within to find your peace, enthusiasm and joy.

-Drink lots of water for our health and clarity of mind.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths. Remember breath is our reset button.

-Let your curiosity and creativity run wild.


What made me smile yesterday……

-The moon.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
