Spring Cleaning

It takes work to let go of clutter.
It takes work to let go of the past. 
It takes work to clear away all that is not true. 
It takes work to undo unhealthy habits and limiting beliefs.

It is easier to stay asleep at the wheel and let life happen to you.
It is easier to complain about what they did instead of what you need to do.
It is easier to stay in bed, deny and whine, rather than get up and do something good for you.
It is easier to neglect, ignore and fantasize instead of facing the consequences of being unwilling.

It is work to practice forgiveness.
It is work to clean up your mess.
It is work to take responsibility.
It is work to do the work to make your life good.

Laziness is really hidden fear.
Unwillingness is really resistance to correcting your errors.
Procrastination is really pretending you can’t, wont’ or need to get ready.
The time for cleaning and clearing, simplifying and choosing again is NOW.

Courage is needed to overcome fear.
Willingness is needed to step forward in faith.
Initiation and inspiration is needed to overcome inertia.
Gratitude is needed to know there is a better way for you to heal it all.

Begin today.
Cluttered minds shows up as cluttered houses, cars and closets.
Confused thinking shows up as ambivalence, doubt and endless research.
Inner conflict shows up as procrastination and hesitance.

Focus on your preferred choices.
Forgive others for teaching and demonstrating what is mistaken and limited.
Forgive yourself for believing and following what they taught and choose again.
Choose consciously for what is highest and best for everyone, especially you.

Give yourself rewards, appreciation and respect for making new and better choices.
Give yourself plenty of love for what is good for you and others.
Honor your new choices by working to make it your new daily habits.
Appreciate the work it takes to make your whole life new again.

Life is for giving.
You are the Gift.
Your work is to honor and appreciate the Gift you are.
Take impeccable care of your whole self everyday in everyway.

Loving you as you do what it True for You.
Betty Lue

Do It Anyway

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.
