Life is a series of ups and downs and we have to have a clarion view of life in this way so that no matter our present circumstances, we remain focused. There needs to be a baseline of hope that we can focus on. Sometimes we are below that baseline and things are horrible and when that's the case look up to that baseline of hope! Other times we are above that baseline and everything is going unbelievably well and when this is the case, still focus on that baseline so as not to allow pride to creep in.
The bottom line is we should look to that baseline of hope, look hopefully up to that baseline when down and look humbly down to that baseline when up.
Find your baseline!!!
Peace and Love,
