Watch Yourself!

I now teach only Love.
I heal and inspire others with my thoughts, words and actions.
I love, trust and respect myself for sharing the best I know.
When I err, I immediately forgive myself and choose again. 

It is your words that can bless or curse.
It is your judgments that can teach right or wrong.
It is your behavior that can create or destroy.
Watch what you do and say everyday in everyway.

Look at how you treat the ones close to you.
Observe how they feel with what you say and do.
Be honest about how you can hurt them and their lives.
Just because it was done to you doesn’t make it right.

Take time to notice what brings goodness and inspiration.
Be willing to eliminate what creates resistance and desperation.
Dump toxic thoughts and feelings in private and not on people.
Throw away what is not good without hurting anyone.

We can lift people up or throw them down.
It serves no one to hurt, humiliate or demean others.
It blesses everyone to support, encourage and motivate others.
You can lead the way to more respect and responsibility for all.

When you are the person you most respect, you are in love.
When you are the one you feel sorry for, you are in fear.
When you are the one you dislike, you are in self criticism.
When you are the one who hurts others, you are in self hatred.

Take time to notice what is working.
Take time to ask, “What can I do?”
Take time to appreciate what others are doing for you.
Take time to give what is needed in each moment.

You can be the one you want to be.
You can teach and lead and heal.
You can create a safe place for others.
You can make every encounter real.

You can enjoy the opportunity to inspire.
You can bring everyone peace.
You can enjoy the gifts of trust and freedom.
You can learn from everyone and teach.

Life offers us the chance to clean up the past.
We have this amazing time to change our world.
We must change our thoughts and words and behavior.
We can see and feel what is good and kind and real.

Loving you and loving me, 
Betty Lue

(Communicate changes honestly and immediately.)

Do more than your “fair” share.

Live your own life in integrity and on purpose.
Clarify, communicate and live your mission, your path, your principles and values.  

Be responsible for yourself, your work and live your life impeccably. 
Don’t expect others to pick up after you or take care of you.

Use your time together wisely.
Focus on meaningful, positive and inspiring conversation and activities.

Spend time, money, energy and resources only on what you value and want to increase.
Waste nothing in your relationship.  No arguing, pettiness, emotional dumping or negativity.

As circumstances change, there is a need to re-commit to what works for all participants.
Families need to meet to look at the specific needs of each individual to be at their best.
Couples need to ensure that the relationship is “serving all parties.
Business partners need to return to their original agreement and consider changing roles as needed.

Life requires that we be in relationship.
With respect for ourselves and each other there is open communication.
With responsibility for the quality of our relationships, there is a willingness to seek what works for all.
With cooperation there is encouragement to listen for ways to serve the needs of everyone.
When everyone WINS, the relationships are harmonious, peaceful and enjoyable.
