If Not For You……

I love the work I do and I do it with Love.
I choose to do what is mine to do.
When I see something that needs to be done, it is mine to do.
I am willing to do whatever is good, helpful and inspiring.

If not for you, do it for you children and grand kids.
If not for you, do it for humanity.
If not for you , do it for Planet Earth.
If not for you, do it for Creator, Source and All That Is.

There is work to be done.
I have work and so do you.
Mostly we have cleaning up to do.
What was given us is ours to use and care for.

The work we have is clearing the past.
The work is to respect what we have.
The work is to protect the future.
The work we have is to give “thanks” now.

While Labor Day has come and gone, our real work must carry on.
Waiting for someone else to do what is our mess is disrespectful.
Blaming the past, people and politics is neglectful.
Our work really must be to deal with what we have.

In our families, stop denying what is not healthy or unsuccessful.
If anyone is unhappy or unkind, we have work to do.
If there is swearing or neglect, hurtful comments add to the problem.
First, you must clean up your own language and behavior.

With all children, we must treat them with kindness and respect. positive attention and love.
No more blaming or shaming, demanding or threatening.
With our partners and friends, no more drinking and drugging, ignorant comments or gossip.
With ourselves, everyday there is work to do to clean up our house, our mind, our mouth and our lives.

What does it take to start each day with gratitude and Yeah!?
With the right attitude of gratitude, we can have a glorious day.
With a few moments of quiet, inner listening and peace, we know what is ours to do.
When we know what is good to do, we do it with full response-ability, gratitude and blessings.

When work seems overwhelming, begin with yourself.
Take time to love you well.
Put your mind at rest with self appreciation and respect.
Clean out the past with forgiveness and choose again.

Begin today.
Clear toxic memories with a breath, a sigh, honorable closure and good bye!
Clean your closet and your drawers.
Make the bed you want to lie in.

Your example sets the tone for this day for you.
Your children and partner will be blessed by a clean you.
Do your own tasks every morning and night to set the example to do what is right.
When you begin with you, a positive attitude will appear, “You Can Do It!”

I appreciate you willingness to do what is right in front of you.
The simple stuff, right at home, the words your use and your positive tone.
Everything you say and do will come back around to respect and bless you.
So do the work with real content and everyone benefits from time well spent.

Loving you everyday in every way.
Sometimes real early, sometimes the night before,
I always take time to give you more.
You and I deserve to remember to stay in Love forever.
Betty Lue

Do It Anyway by Kent M. Keith (Attributed to Mother Teresa)

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.  
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.  
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.  
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy it all overnight.  
Build anyway.  

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous.  
Be happy anyway.  

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.  
Do good anyway.  

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.  
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.  

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.  

It was never between you and them anyway.
