We were evacuated for 10 days due to wildfires in Lake County, CA.

We returned today with such appreciation for all the first responders.

1/2 of this county has burned in the last 5 years and our home was spared.

Life is good and we are grateful!



I value what is good for us all.

I appreciate what I have to give and share.

I live my life with joy and gratitude.

I enjoy the beauty around me and within me.


Time to Give Thanks!


When we don’t know what to do, give thanks.

When we are not happy, be grateful.

When we are feeling sorry for ourselves, appreciate.

When thinking you are alone, value what is.


People think of celebrating when everything seems right and good.

Most complain when they judge they have less than they want.

Many focus on what is missing and don’t even see what they have.

While we compare our losses, how many are feeling blessed for what remains?


The good we appreciate today will be even better tomorrow. 

When we complain about lack, we highlight and increase our lack.

I am sorry for the loss, and I give thanks for what is gained in learning.

I am always grateful for what has been received and shared.


In metaphysics, there is an understanding that what we appreciate increases.

There is the knowledge that where we focus, we encourage and expand.

 Our attention gives value to where we focus, and our focused energy increases.

Therefore, it is essential that we learn to focus on the Good, the wholesome.


With all the changes in environment, economy and family life, we must find gratitude.

When our world, nation and communities are ever-changing, we can learn to increase the Good

When we allow our attention to attend to what is insufficient, we keep see and believing in the negative.

Our focus must turn toward creative solutions and positive outcomes.


What can I do?

What can we do?

How are we valuing what is beneficial?

Where are we contributing to what is improving?


Begin by simply learning to say “Thanks!”

In prayer, we can say, “Thank you God.”

In praise, we can be pleased with the new day.

In healing, we can smile on one another.


Give thanks for the home you live in and the bed you sleep upon.

Give gratitude for the choices you are making to help and serve.

Be appreciative of the food you eat and how it grew.

Be aware of the value of life, liberty and the pursuit in happiness.


You are alive and able to choose.

I am aware of how I can contribute.

We are able to smile on one another.

Our world receives our presence to do good.


This is our opportunity to turn around our mind, body and spirit to value what we value.

Let go with your blessings of what no longer deserves our attention and intention.

Serve yourself and others by giving thanks for what inspires and enlightens you today.

Give your best and receive your own blessings of appreciation.


I value you, 

Betty Lue


Gratitude expands our Good.
Allow Goodness to grow with Your Sincere Appreciation.

Be Good


Love is my natural state.

Joy and peace are my natural state.

I forgive myself for forgetting and neglecting to choose only Good.

Goodness is the way I am born to be naturally.


Being Good.


What does being good mean for you?

Be good to feel good.

Be good to receive good.

Be good to experience the good in you and all.


It seems like many have never know what it is to be good.

Contribute the best in you and you are being good.

If you don’t know what is good, you can ask.

“What will be good for you?”


We can never assume what is good for another.

We can only feel the good within ourselves.

Consider what gives you peace and happiness.

Experiment with giving the best you know.


Notice the joy and delight in you.

Notice feeling inspired and alive.

Notice how what you give comes back.

Notice how goodness inspires more good.


Our thoughts must be good.

Our words must be good.

Our behavior must be good.

To know is to believe in good.


Ethical behavior is good.

Doing what is right is good.

Blessings are good.

Living in integrity is good.

It is natural to be good.

It is helpful to be good.

It teaches everyone to be good.

It lifts up others to be good.


Take time to consider what is the good you are called to do every day.

You will feel when your thoughts, words and behavior are good.

You will feel ashamed or guilty when you are off purpose.

It is time to consider your heart and your conscience to be good.


When we stop caring, we cannot give goodness.

When we are numb in addiction, we do not feel good.

When we  are unkind or doing harm, we are not good.

When you have forgotten how to be good, seek examples of goodness.


We are the ones to return “being good” to a natural way of living, loving and giving. 

Loving you with all the Good within me.

Peace Begins With You

Be the Difference You Want to See ! 

Affirmations: (These affirmations are for you!)

Today is the first day of my life.

Today I will give my best to everyone I meet.

Today I choose to forgive my fear and reach out with peace.

Today, I will follow the high way and bring peace to all.



Peace Begins With You


Peace begins with you.

Love begins with you.

Healing begins with you.

Kindness begins with you.


Why does it begin with you?

Because you are the most conscious one.

Because you are the most willing one.

Because you are the most able to do the right thing!


It is childish to wait to be forced to stop fighting.

It is immature to want the other one to go first.

We are here to make a difference in our world.

You and I can make the difference in our homes and work places.


To control our emotions is essential.

Being out of control is lazy.

We can practice the art of reason and diplomacy.

We can stop acting like a two year old.


Peace begins with peace of mind.

When our mind stops running the show, our emotions will be in check.

When we suspend the mental and emotional authority to do whatever, we will act differently.

When we stop allowing ourselves to think, speak and act crazy, we will behave sanely.


It is time to think with reason and creativity.

Even children can be taught and show how to reason.

People in great distress can learn how to breathe deeply and behave rationally.

Our planet does not need to implode with war and hatred, disease and despair.


We are in a time of needed humanitarian efforts with no blame or condemnation.

When we listen to our heart/mind, we know that fear begets fear, and hate begets hate.

You and I can be the healers with one interaction at a time.

Treat everyone with respect and dignity.


All ages deserve respect and dignity.

All colors, races, religions deserve our best.

We can only unite to be helpful to one another, when we see things differently.

We must start by behaving with genuine kindness and respect for everyone.  


Trust we all can learn together.

Let us begin today.

Respecting us all, 

Betty Lue


Be Respectful.
Be Responsible.
Be Cooperative.
Create a Better World for All.

No Harm!


I am safe when I remember to Love.

I trust my inner guidance to show me the way to be most helpful.

I am present with my sincere commitment to love no matter what.

I forgive myself for neglecting to honor me and my way to respond with Love.


No Harm, Please!


When there is harm, stop and step away.

When there are harmful words, stop and remove yourself.

When there are harmful thoughts, stop yourself and change your minds.

When there are harmful behaviors, stop and leave the situation.


Make a commitment to stop doing harm to yourself and others.

Make a decision to stop the hurting with your words, behavior or thoughts.

When you do harm, you attract harm.

When you behave in hurtful ways, you are doing harm.


This world was changed and deranged by fearful humans.

People hurt, threaten, bully and fight to get their own way.

War and hatred, killing and abusing, are justified to win.

People have not understood that there is enough for all.


You can begin today to stop hurtful ways.

You can change your home and workplace.

You can find more good in being peaceful.

You can change your behavior when you decide.


Stop today allowing anyone or anything to hurt you.

Stop by withdrawing your destructive energies.

Give peace where there is a need for love.

Offer what is wanted without bloodshed or harm.


Children must be taught to do no harm.

Adolescents must be show how to do no harm.

Adults must learn to stop doing harm.

Peoples must learn there is a better way.


Yes, talking with civility takes longer.

Working together in cooperation takes longer.

Giving and sharing with one another takes long.

But resolving the inequities is worth it to stop fighting.


We are smart enough to know the costs.

We are wise enough to know we must stop.

We are good enough to seek what will work.

Together we can find a better way.


What will it take to be kind to your neighbor?

What can you do to forgive your ancestors?

What are you willing to change to make peace?

What can you give to forgive and undo the past?


Do Unto Others As You Want Them To Do Unto You.

You can because you want to.

You can because you choose to.

You can because you are Loving.


I am loving you,

Clean Up Your Life!


I enjoy cleaning and clearing my space.

I make room for more goodness, joy and prosperity when I clean.

My mind and body function with more ease and energy in clean places.

Completions and conversations are easier in calm, harmonious space.


Cleaning Reminders 


When you need to move, clean.

When you have a problem, clean.

When you are forgetful, clean.

When you get confused, clean.


Cleaning is a joy when you have the right attitude.

Children can enjoy picking up, when they have grateful parents.

Adults can change their mind, when they “hate” to clean.

All of society can learn to simplify their lives with cleaning.


Consider cleaning up after every meal.

Consider cleaning up before you go to bed.

Consider cleaning up before school and work.

Consider doing a thorough cleaning weekly, monthly or even annually.


Consider yard sales, charitable contribution, calling in “We Got Junk” to take it away.

You have the right to demonstrate to family, friends and neighbors how you live.

You will discover the cleaner your bedroom is, the better you sleep.

You will learn that children love to copy their parents.


I never learned not to love cleaning.

I love how things feel and look when clean.

I could feel how good it is to start with a clean kitchen or desk.

I experienced that everyone keeps my space clean when I do.


As a child, we had minimal things but always what we needed.

I did not compare with others but saw us as happy and well off.

While the money was little, there were always hand-me-downs.

I enjoy cleaning and polishing and sorting with full appreciation.


In Feng Shui, they teach that we are only to have as much as we care for well.

They teach to stop hoarding what is not used and functional for your well-being.

They teach that what you own, owns a piece of your energy and defines you.

Therefore, it is essential that you conscientiously choose only what is beneficial to you.


Observe how much better you feel and think when your spaces are clean.

Experience how much more you can accomplish when your space is in order.

Feel the energy in you is drained by what is incomplete, messy or unnecessary.

Begin to clean and clear one space, even one drawer, at a time.


You will see how free you feel when you live simply.

You will appreciate how good you feel when your life is in order.

You will think with more creativity, when you have open time and space.

You will begin to fully understand what works for you.


Clean up your life inside as well!

The more organization you have, the better you think.

The more space you have, the better you create.

The more clean your life is, the better your health.

Encouraging your whole life health, in every way.

Be Effective!

Be Respectful!

Be Responsible!

Have Good Routines!



I respect myself and others in choosing what is best for us.

I trust the choices I make.

I honor my health and happiness with every decision I make.

I live impeccably to be the best I can be.


Does It Work?


If what you do works, keep doing it.

If what you do doesn’t work, stop and do something better.

If you don’t see the results you want, choose again.

To keep doing the same thing expecting a different result is foolish.


If you don’t know any better, learn from someone who does.

Ask for help from those who have a life that works.

Read from books and then experiment to see what works.

Watch people who are happy and peaceful how to do better.


Seems logical and smart to find a better way.

When you pray or affirm, seek a better way.

When you listen and learn, search for a better way.

When you get hurt or offended, look for a better way.


Stop complaining and start appreciating.

Stop demanding and start asking for help.

Stop blaming and begin to forgive your negativity.

Stop doing the same thing and explore something different.


Parents and teachers need to learn to value what our kids and youth are saying.

Leaders and bosses need to learn from what employees are requesting.

Families need to learn how to take time to affirm and honor one another.

Everyone must begin by taking impeccable care of their own needs first.


When hungry, tired and angry, we are not helpful or effective.

When we take care of our own needs, we are open to find better ways.

When we express blame and criticism, threats and demands, we are not effective.

When we are reactive with fear and harm, we are not effective with ourselves and others.


It is time to see what works.

When peaceful, discerning and helpful, we can always find a better way.

When we see a positive goal, with persistence, we will find an effective way.

Notice how you talk to others and seek to be respectful, kind and helpful.


You can always do better with your intention to create what is good for all.

You can always choose to be happy and helpful when you relate at home and work.

You can always be your best when you care for your own needs first.

You can always find the right way to live, love, learn and appreciate.


Pause and breathe more.

Step away and listen within to seek help and wisdom.

Stop and forgive your harmful and reactive behavior.

Choose again for what is good and healthy for all.


Loving us in doing what is right and good and effective for all.

Now is the time to choose what works for you at home and work.

You are the role model, so be One!

Keep Cool!

Be Calm. 

Be Clear.

Be Correct.


I release the past and choose for a better future.

I seek what is highest and best for all concerned.

I would rather be happy than be right.

I want all interaction and communication to be helpful for all.


Learn To Keep Cool.


When it is hot, keep cool!

When you are upset, learn to control yourself.

When others are upset, learn to bring peace.

When you get “triggered”, learn to step away.


There is a time when upset is a wakeup call.

There is a place to be fully and freely expressive.

There is no point in creating resistance and fear.

There is no healing in reacting with anger and blame.


We have a choice in how we use our emotions.

We have our own mature ways of responding .

We have to learn how to control our emotions.

We have to mature in how we treat others.


In this immature society, we  observe minimal impulse control.

Parents may flare up in using harmful words and behaviors.

Politicians my be abusive and childish in how they react.

Drivers may be out of control in how they take out their anger.


What children see teaches them how to be to get attention.

Youth observe violence in movies, TV, video games and in their homes.

Our emotionally based comunication  heats up disagreements.

People seem to enjoy getting their way with hurtful words and actions.


To make a difference, calm yourself and express with respect.

To be heard, take time to think, speak and act rationally.

To fight creates more push back and less respect.

To state you position and then listen to theirs opens cooperation.


When we promote the adrenalin of fear and fighting, we get less cooperation.

When we demand, threaten, bully and demean others harms relationships.

I highly recommend that we find peace and understanding only when calm.

I suggest that we step away and calm ourselves to begin to respond in healthy ways.


When anyone is upset, there can be no positive interaction and co-creative decisions.

When either party is angry, hurt, fearful and resentful, there will not be a win-win outcome.

It is essential that the conscious and mature individual bring peace and understanding.

It is most important that all parties have an opportunity to be heard and treated with respect.


Let you and I be the ones to listen with respect.

Let us respect our own ideas with one time statement.

Let us seek a response that leads to a positive outcome for all.

Let us learn to seek peace and happiness more than being “right”..


Respecting our reason and choice for peace.
