For your consideration…..

“One step forward and two steps back.” I think for most people we think of this as negative or not a good thing. Often we use this phrase in frustration. Today we are told that the step forward is still progress and the two steps back are as well.

We are asked to consider that perhaps we have been so efficient we are before our time. Perhaps there is something on the road that was not there when we passed but is now. Or perhaps the opportunity or gift was there and we sailed on by and did not notice it. Or perhaps we did notice and did not want it. We did not see the value in it for us but we do need it whether we now realize it or not.

For whatever the reason, there is something we need to go back for. It is not a bad thing. It is not a negative. If we take one step forward and two steps back it is just perfect. It is all good.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray…..spend some alone time with yourself. Pat yourself on the back.

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Spread joy and let the joy of others seep into your heart as well.

What made me smile yesterday……

-Waking up and having my Alex here.

-A successful run out to get a morning doorbuster. Yup, I was one of those people. I met great people in line and was back home by 6:30 in time for the snow to start falling.

-Texting with Kerri….too funny….she makes me giggle.

-A great family get together. Kerry and Jeff are great host and hostesses.

-I love seeing cousins get together and catching up.
