Do You Give Everyone Your Best?

Reality check for you is to see if you are giving everyone your best self.
Are you treating your family the same as your clients or customers or coworkers?
Do you give your employees the same respect as you do your bosses?
Do you treat the janitor and housecleaner and grocery clerk the same as  your minister, boss or friend?

We may have been trained that those in high places deserve our respect and admiration.
We may have been raised to seek power from the rich, famous and powerful.
We may have watched our parents treat others better than their own children.
We may be too tired or distracted to give our kids and partners our full attention.

When I saw that I was patterning my family behavior like my Dad, I made a new choice.
When I realized that I was tired at the end of a 14 hr day and not there for my kids, I made a choice.
When I knew how to be fully present with compassion and wisdom for every client, I made a choice.
It was time to give everyone my best no matter what time or relationship I had.

The only way I know to be my best and give my best is to forgive, erase and undo the rest.
I vowed to be energized and present with the best I knew for everyone.
I forgave my past and those I learned from and chose again to prepare myself for only giving my best.
I learned how to renew myself with a breath or two, a walk, a prayer, a thought, a choice.

So in between clients I take a moment of quiet, a walk to the bathroom, a breath of fresh air.
And now I am choosing to take a 1-5 minute walk every hour, between clients.
On the drive home, allow Spirit to fill my body and Being with light, Love, laughter as I let go.
Remembering to let go of the last moment and be filled with this moment, in Love and at Peace.

I know we all have our ways to refresh and renew everyday.
We can take much better care of ourselves with fresh whole foods, breathing deep into our bellies.
We can remember to take breaks of meditation, short naps, simple affirmations and prayers.
We can refuse to receive and give less than our best in all circumstances and situation.

To take the best care of me, I must clear away and forgive all that is not best.
I must release what is not mine to have or to give.
I must learn to undo what is untrue, unloving and not good for me and you.
For everything I receive, I pass on to others.

When we choose, let us choose for the best, the good the right and true.
Let us stop taking on others pain or negativity, or fear or fake stories.
Let us not repeat and repair what is broken, weak and unkind.
Let us live and love and share and care always and only what is inspiring, helpful, compassionate and wise.

Ingest the best and forgive and forget the rest.
Life is meant to pass on to others only what is good for all.
Loving you and me and us and we, 
Betty Lue
