The Hope of Lent

There are no hopeless situations, only people who think hopelessly.

Windred Newman

March 22th -  Lent offers new growth and life we hope for

I saw the check list below the other day and I thought what a great way to base my new beginnings on

start spending time with the right people
start making happiness a daily priority
let go of self limiting behaviors
 make life simple again

We need to remember that no one is perfect. This might seem like the most obvious statement in the world, but it's important to remember. We live in a time when people's thoughts and actions are more widely recorded and open to scrutiny than ever before. A small mistake can cost someone their reputation or livelihood. An opinion expressed, particularly online, can invite a world of insults. It appears to be easier than ever to take the moral high ground, and to dismiss a person entirely based on one thing we know about them.

However, the Lenten lesson for today is that it’s best to see beyond the labels placed on people and treat each other the way we would want to be treated.  Everyone deserves another chance and a new beginning. Remember none of us is perfect.

So true no one is perfect and we need to learn to get along with everyone who is in our life. To forgive and move on is a good thing.

YES, if we just give a little effort, we can find the GOOD, and that is so important for a stress-less life.
Good one,,,

Wonderful admonition, Ma. I've been plenty guilty of trying strangers in the court of public opinion.

My boss is always reminding us to treat others the way in which we'd like to be treated.


It is easy to forget none of us is perfect and everyone does deserve another chance and a new beginning.
