For your consideration…

HOPEfully setting a daily intention does not sound hard. Indeed our first intention should be to remember to do it. But we are asked to remember to really thing about our intention. After all, it is the energy that we will set into motion.

We are reminded that intentions are not meant to be “to-do” lists. They are meant to chart a course for our day that is conducive to our life purpose…our well-being and the well-being of all. Perhaps it is to “be present” in every moment. Perhaps it is to be patient and confident. Perhaps it is to accepting. Perhaps it is to see our lessons in what is presented to us. Our intention depends on what we are working on in our life. Whatever appears to us is perfect.

We are reminded to be grateful for all that is put in front of us. Even tough lessons are good for us. Setting the intention to end the day in gratitude is always healthy. It plants the seed for the next day and so on…and on…and on.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Affirm…“I am loved.”

-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.

-Start the day with an intention and end it in gratitude.

What made me smile yesterday….

-A relaxing day at home on a really chilly day.

-Catching up with Alex.

-Getting gifts wrapped for our February birthdays. I love wrapping gifts.

-A good book.

-A good reading with Sandra.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
