Hi, I'm Beth, and positively b.e.e. is my small (but hopefully effective) effort to disrupt negativity in the world by focusing on positivity, light, joy, and gratitude. The mission is simple: life is short, so find joy in it. Focus on the good stuff in order to get through the bad stuff. Have gratitude for what you have and other things will fall into place. You can read more about this and why I was inspired to start this site in my inaugural post.

People always ask, why "b.e.e."? Well, "Bee" is a childhood nickname (and that's a loooonnnng story), and I've been spelling it with lower-case initials for longer than I can remember, so why stop? It's a quirk, run with it!

Anyway, this is a place for me to share anything I find to be uplifting or inspirational, whether it be random thoughts, articles, or music . You may see photos I take or things that I make with my hands. You’ll see some of my strategies for dealing with life's issues, some things that make me happy, references to spiritual healing, or book recommendations.

You will even see me share what I know how to do, in the form of tutorials I develop and patterns I write to create knit or crocheted items. This is because I truly believe that sharing a hobby or a skill with someone is just another form of negativity disruption. Hobbies enrich our lives and up our joy quotient. For me, playing with yarn is a form of meditation, so it's only fair to share that Zen with others. If you've ever wanted to know more about knitting or crochet, you may end up learning something here as time and equipment allow.

In short: no matter the form or topic of the content, positivity, light, joy, and gratitude are the rule over here at positively b.e.e.!
