Thank You

Wow! Thank you God! Thank you Good! Thank you One and All!

The more we appreciate all that is good and beautiful and loving, the more we notice, receive and give.
Appreciation Increases. Criticism and worry contract and limit.

My concluding list of simple points to be applied to many difference circumstances for abundant living:

No worry. No criticism. No arguing.
No waste. Use it all or don’t buy it.
Establish a step by step plan and follow it.
Set policies of fairness and effectiveness and live by them.
Borrow nothing and use no credit cards (unless you can pay it off easily and quickly).
Save for what matters most and give to what inspires and motivates you. FIRST.
Live on what is left.
Spend only on what you need. (Wants are for special rewards and when there is plenty.)
Wait at least 24 hours before indulging in what you “want”. (Ask if still want to pay the price.)
When debts are paid, give yourself and family members a small allowance for pleasure. (less that 1%)
Forgive at quickly as possible when mistakes are made.
Appreciate every penny earned or received.
Be conscious of every penny spent or given or saved.
Let your earning and spending habits be healed and changed with conscious attention and appreciation.

Money is a symbol for security, freedom, power, achievement, prestige, respect, acquisition, control or philanthropy. Be creative in finding a better way to create the same experience without depending on $$.

Homework Exercise:
How much have you earned in your life time?
How much have you spent and saved?
How much do you really “Need” to live simply?
Knowing what you know now what would you do differently?
Can you make the decision to learn from your experience and make changes now?

Loving you in remembering:
Life is for giving. You are the gift.
It is in giving the gift of your whole self that you recognize the Gift you are.
We are gifts to one another when we remember.

Don’t be tempted to think that money or material things are the measure of your worth.

Loving you,
Betty Lue
