For your consideration…..

Each and every moment impacts us and then becomes part of our past. Perhaps, we did not have a choice when we were in the moment but we have a choice on how we react to it. We have a choice on how it defines us. We have a choice on how we let it impact the moment we are in and future moments.

Today’s message is addressing tough times in our lives, major and minor. Often we define our lives before and after we lost a loved one. We are reminded that how we move forward after our loss it up to us. We can continue to let our loved one be a part of our life. It is different but still very valid and impactful.

Loss of  loved ones are major events but we are impacted by every moment of our lives. A spat with someone, an irritation at something, a complication etc. impact us at the time but it can not continue to disrupt our lives in the future unless we let it. We can choose to let it go or not. We can assign its role in our present and future. We can relegate it to obsolete file.

We have a choice. We always have a choice. Carry the positive forward and let the negative dissipate.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.
