Inaugural Post!

Hi, welcome to positively b.e.e.! My name is Beth, but I’ve been called “Bee” since childhood by family and close friends, and I’m a pretty positive person, hence the name of this site. This inaugural post will explain a little bit about what you can expect to see here.

After nearly dying from an accident in 2006, I realized that life was potentially shorter than anticipated, and figured I’d better get with the program and enjoy it. After living in fear and negativity for many, many years, and doing a lot of work on myself, I have:
  • achieved more calm in a world full of chaos; 
  • found more love in a world filled with fear; and 
  • attained more peace in a world that can feel like we’re at war with ourselves. 
I started this site to share all that awesome POSITIVITY with YOU. That’s right! We’re gonna shine some LIGHT in this place, share some JOY with the world, and have some GRATITUDE for it all. Just call me a one-stop-shop for good cheer!

You’ll see some of my thoughts on the things all of us deal with in life, some things that make me happy (shout out to fellow knitters!), random inspiration, and references to spiritual issues -- sky’s the limit, really! No matter the content, though, the themes will be the same: positivity, light, joy, and gratitude.

One caveat, though: I’m not a professional, well, keep in mind these are only my thoughts on making sense of my world -- nothing more. That said, I hope what you see here is entertaining, uplifting, funny, and makes your day just that much nicer for having read it. 

Thanks for joining me on this new adventure!


  1. Unfortunately, it won't let me subscribe without using my Google details and gmail address (which I never use). Hopefully I'll be able to see notifications of new posts over at FB. <3

    1. I'm really sorry to hear that happened to you! Am happy to help you with it if I'm able to. I did ask someone without a google account to test it and they were able to subscribe, so I hope this is only temporary for you. At any rate, I will definitely be updating FB with post links as well. Thank you for reading, silentsgirl! :)

  2. We can certainly use more positivity! Thanks for inviting me, Beth: looking forward to your posts! ❤️

    (It automatically directs you to log in to a Google account -- did you set it up that way?)

    1. Oh, and my gmail has yet to update my name, so Ortiz it is! ☺️

    2. Chris - how odd! I did not set it up that way, but I will do some poking around to see what's what. I know when I tested it, I simply entered an email address, entered the security captcha text, and that was it. I'll let you know what I find out. Thanks for reporting, and for subscribing! :)
