For your consideration…..

Perhaps you have noticed children experimenting and trying to figure things out only to find themselves “stuck” and asking or screaming for help. Or maybe you remember when you were a child and you tried something new and got “stuck?” Maybe you saw other kids doing something and it looked easy enough but once you got into it you couldn’t figure it out. I remember a couple of times I got into trouble when a friend talked me into sticking my tongue on  frozen monkey bars. Another time she talked me into jumping off of a dock into water that was too deep and I could not swim. Yikes.

We have to look no further than children to see limits being pushed. In children we applaud their drive to learn and strive to master new things. We can see the focus. We can see the “I can” attitude and absolute determination.

Our message today tells us today that we are just and attitude away from mastering new things. All we have to do is remember and know “we can.”

We are asked to push our limits, believe in ourselves and go for it. Try new things. Maybe we will get stuck…for awhile….but we will figure it out. It will still be worth it.

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.

-Try…new things, remaster old. Remember you can.

What made me smile yesterday…..

-A fun school day.

-Our dog seems to be on the mend….still not sure what made him sick.

-Wow, lots of steps today. Maybe I will learn to like this Fitbit.

-Tried a new recipe in the air fryer. We both loved it.

-Catching us with Shannon, Alex and Jackie.

-I love Amazon Prime. I ordered AJ and Mac books for Spring vacation on Saturday at 10:00 pm. They got them yesterday.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude.
