A Really Good Life!

 I appreciate the life I have.
The more I appreciate my life, the better it is.
I share all the good I have and there is more to share.
My life works because I am responsible, helpful, generous and creative.

Can you have a really Good Life?
Everyone deserves a really good life.
How can you create a Good Life?
Undo every thought word and deed that is not beneficial to all.

Good Living is the result of effective choices and honest values.
Think Good thoughts for yourself and others.
Speak Good words of gratitude and blessing.
Do Good deeds that encourage, support and benefit everyone.

When you want only Good and all Good, Be Good in all things.
What we sow, we reap.
What we give, we receive.
What we focus on, we strengthen.

If we would observe all thoughts and outcomes, we would know the mind creates.
If we were aware of the judgments we make, we would forgive all.
If we realize what we focus on, we would focus on only the Good.
If we took responsibility for how we treat ourselves and others, we would choose only Love.

Life is not subtle.
Life is obvious.
Life is a choice.
With consciousness, we can see the origin of all experiences.

When we seek to learn how to have a good life, we focus on creating more Good.
When we seek to find ways to no have a bad life, we attend and defend against all Bad stuff.
When we understand our attention is growing what we attend to, we will change our focus.
Choose to give time, attention and energy to creating and appreciating all Good and only Good.

Think about The Good in your life.
Speak about the Good in the world.
Do Good things for you and others and the beauty and bounty of this Earth.
Remember that your thoughts, words and deeds are reaching and teaching all the Universe.

You can have a Good Life (some say a “Godly Life”.
Be praiseful of all the Good you have and you will have more Good.
Be selective in your words to share only words of Goodness and blessings.
Be aware of teaching Loving Kindness and behaving in ways that are loving and kind.

Your life work is to clear all obstacles, habits, beliefs and unconscious patterns of “not Good”!
Do the work mentally, emotionally, physically, relationally, financially with forgiveness and gratitude.
Enjoy the work you do for the Good of All.
Dedicate your thoughts, words and Actions to All Good for All.

This is a Good Life!
Loving you, 
Betty Lue

Who or What Do You Live For?

I trust myself and free myself to be All I AM.
I live my Truth everyday in every way.
I no longer seek others’ approval; I now approve of myself.
Life is fun, safe and easy when I live in integrity with my highest Truth.

Do you live for yourself or for others?
Do you live for your parents or yours children?
Do you live for money or pleasure?
Do you live for the future or for the past?

Have you ever thought about what or whom you live for?
Do you watch your thoughts when you wake up in the morning?
Do you notice what you use as a reward, excuse or reason?
Do you pay attention to where you focus your attention and approval?

Some live for their children.
Some live for their pleasure.
Some live for a higher purpose.
Some live simply to survive.
Some live for money.
Some live to eat.
Some live to find a mate.
Some live to celebrate.
Some live for the next fix or addiction.
Some live to give.
Some live to serve.
Some live to love God.

What do you live for?
When you know your purpose here, don’t be confused by the choices of others
There is no need to compare, tell or convince others of your reason for being.
Begin to dedicate your life to what feels true for you.

When you choose your reason for being, commit, focus and dedicate your life to your truth.
When living in integrity with what is true for you, you feel whole, complete and fulfilled.
When you claim what is your truth, you find an inner contentment and peace.
When you are not pretending or seeking others approval, you feel inner strength and courage in life.

Your life is yours to live your way.
Be willing to ask yourself what is your truth.
Be open to choosing what feel right, true and good for you.
You know what is your way, because you feel complete and at peace.

Begin to accept the diversity life offers.
Be understanding of all the different ways to be.
Be accepting of others’ choices and voices.
Trust everything works together for Good.

Let go and Let Good be for everyone including YOU!

Do It Anyway by Kent M. Keith

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.

Are You Willing to Take Action?

I act on my inner guidance without hesitation.
I live and love with joy and gratitude.
I do what I say and say what I do.
I respond in the most loving and helpful I know.

Are you willing to stop your child, friend, spouse, or parent from doing harm to themselves?
Are you willing to take action and make the difference that saves a life?
Are you willing to stop yourself from addiction to whatever may harm you and your life?
Are you willing to step up and stop condoning, staying quiet, turning away or ignoring?

When you know there is a problem, do you speak up?
When you know there is a problem with your own dependency, do you seek help?
When you know there is a problem, do you get information, guidance and support?
Are you setting the highest example for others to follow?

Someone must say “NO” to what is dangerous and doing harm.
Someone must speak up to say “ I love you and this is not OK!”
Someone must get help to be able and willing to be helpful.
Someone must be willing to do what it takes to not participate.

We stop those who steal.
We stop those who lie.
We stop those who abuse.
Is it not time to stop those who harm themselves?

We want to be helpful, but don’t know how.
We wish we could be helpful, but feel helpless.
We feel guilty about not helping, but withdraw.
We are here to do something to be truly helpful.

Let’s get information and resources.
Let’s stop denying, condemning and neglecting the problem.
Let’s get proactive and seek the help we need to be truly helpful.
Let’s make our brothers and sisters important and let them know we care.

We cannot make people do what they don’t want to do.
We can stop condoning their secret behavior and covering their problem.
We cannot make them stop their addiction.
We can stop giving them money, excuses, sympathy or cover up the problem.

What would you want others to do for you when you have a problem?
Would you want compassion, help, information, tough love, or leave you alone?
You can ask what they want and give what you know.
You can stop waiting and watching, hoping and praying and do something!

Love and speak up.
Love and support.
Love and educate.
Love and demonstrate.

You can do it!
Loving You, 
Betty Lue

Everyone need to take responsibility to show up and speak up to be truly helpful.
Do not go along with what does harm to you or your brother or others.

Robert’s note that inspired this reminder:
Your advice was perfect and it is her willingness to follow it that makes the difference. It’s just like the addict—they have to want it. The non-addict has to want to help enough to take responsibility and take action. They have to “hit bottom” as well, so they don’t give in or let it slide just because they need the other person in some way or they’re afraid of being alone.

It’s a messy world. What I see you do is work with the ones willing to take responsibility—regardless of which side of the relationship they are in (addicted or the partner). I don’t know how to make more of a difference. There are programs everywhere and often for those willing to do something.

What you do is uncover and support their willingness and empower them to take action.  Thanks.”
