For your consideration….

We all  have heard of the Golden Rule.  Today’s message is turning it around on us. “Treat yourself as your want others to treat you.”

We are being asked to be kind to ourselves, to love ourselves and treat ourselves. Yes, there are selfish people but there are as many people who always put themselves last. This is especially true of women and mothers. There never seems to be enough time for themselves. To take time for themselves seems selfish. Most often the people who feel selfish are the selfless. The truly selfish do not see themselves that way because they feel entitled.

Our message today urges us to be good to ourselves…treat ourselves…take time for ourselves. Don’t feel guilty about it. When we invest in ourselves, we end up having more to give. It is a win win for everyone.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-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.

-Treat yourself. Pause to take time for yourself.

What made  me smile yesterday…..

-Another perfect weather day. It was truly magnificent.

-Getting excited for Alex to get home.

-A true teaching moment… of those where your heart sings when a light is turned on for a little one and they clap for joy.

-Bruce and I got a real chuckle out of our friends wedding picture. Bruce says, “Chris, look. Gary looks 12 feet tall.”

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
