Take Out the Trash!

I take out the trash and the past has passed.
I release all thinking about what is no longer here.
I clear the fear, when I let myself hear, “Be free.”
I now seek only Who, What and Where I choose to be.

Dump the garbage.
Clean out your withheld pain.
Flush the toilet of toxic thoughts.
Clear your closet of yesterday’s debris.

Too often people hold on to hurtful memories.
Too much “stinkin’ thinkin’’ keep us stuck in what used to be.
Too many mistaken choices keep us in guilt.
Too many secrets and unfulfilled promises make us live in regret.

It is time to let go of the past.
We need to undo what is not true.
It is our work to let go of the old.
We must release or we will not be free.

Do the real work!
You may not like it, but it is yours to do.
Only you can sort through what you brought to yourself.
Only you can clear what is filled with unhappiness and fear.

Some have bonfires; some burn down the house.
Some simply empty the garbage and take out the trash.
Some create earthquakes and break ups and divorces.
Some run away from the mess and do it all over again.

A gentler and more thorough way is to let it all go.
Keep or create only what brings you joy and inner peace.
Forgive what is released and give it your blessing.
Trust the learning has come and you can be done.

Life is a journey with only a backpack or the shirt on your back.
Home is the place where you feel safe in the love you share.
Safety is found when there are no regrets, guilt or fear.
Abundance is carried with us with true forgiveness and Gratitude.

Release, give away, undo and delete.
Forgive yourself for hoarding the past.
Give up the habit of constipated thinking.
Delete historical hurtful emails and writings.

Only you can free yourself from what never belonged to you.
The past is past.
Kept in a vault or journal, an archive or memory, only serves to keep you stuck.
When you release what is gone from your mind and body, our home any history, you will be free to be.

Step free of painful memorabilia.
Your history is not yours.
Stop emotional hoarding.
Your life is yours again to choose today.

Be free and you will see Who You Want to Be!
Love, only and always Love.
Betty Lue

¤      I love you      ¤

and I know you love me too.


The freedom for you and I to be who we are.

The freedom to live life as we do.

The freedom to make mistakes and learn from them.

The freedom to express our own truth as we see it.



The trust that there is a constant flow of love, 
no matter what.

The trust that, in spite of life’s problems,
we believe in and support each other’s right 
to live as we choose.

The trust that in adversity, 

there is healing and learning and gifts of love.

The trust that under conflict and emotional expression,
there is love

I love you and I trust you.

I free you to be all you are.
