See 12 Steps to Optomistic Living Below!)

You are Responsible for Your Own Happiness!

You are responsible for your own happiness.
You are responsible for your own health.
You are responsible for your own success.
You are responsible for your own life.

You are responsible for everything you experience.
You have asked for it and receive as you have asked.
You have created it with your own thoughts, words and activities.
You have allowed yourself to believe what is not true.

What we learn from childhood often becomes the truth we believe.
We buy the stories we are told by others and the media.
We let life experiences teach us to place blame.
We feel weak, victimized and unsupported because we fear being responsible.

What does it take to respond to everything we experience in a learning way?
What can we do to stop trying to get someone else to take the blame?
How can we succeed with health and happiness when we wait for someone else?
Who really can understand best what we need and want and can do?

Only you can know what is best for you.
Only you can learn by paying attention to you.
Only you can stop doing what does not work for you.
Only you can take impeccable care for you.

Life is not complicated or a mystery.
It requires being present and paying attention.
It shows us clearly what works and does not work.
It gives us immediate feedback about our choices and outcomes.

We can rush by and ignore what we feel and hear and see.
We can complain about what we did and our history.
We can judge others and mind their business instead of ours.
We can wish it would shift so we can be happy and wait and see.
 
When a strategy does not work, we need to stop and choose again.
When we rely on something that does not come through, we need to see it is ours to do.
When we lie in wait and hesitate, we get lost in confusion and doubt so nothing turns out.
When play small, inadequate and unlucky, we need to get we are responsible for what we believe.

Yes, it is true, the thoughts and beliefs we hold always show up in our everyday history.
Yes, it is obvious the words we use teach others how we feel about them and come back on us.
Yes, it is clear our behavior shows either love or fear for which we are responsible and receive.
Yes, we are responsible for how we think, talk about and treat ourselves.

Happiness and true success come from our own thoughts, words and actions.
We can choose what we truly want.
We can choose to be happy and healthy.
We can choose to be successful when we are able to respond to all things with gratitude and love.

Loving being the one who is responsible for my own life.

Release


Affirmations:
I quickly release all that is not good for me.
I let go of everything I no longer need or want.
I bless the past and release it to the Highest Good.
Letting go is fun, safe and easy.


Release Yourself from the Past.

Even yesterday’s memories can be a drag on life.
The pain of yesterday can replay today again and again.
What we store in our minds will recreate like kind.
We can let go and remember right now is what is real.

The more we think about what was, the more it replays in our minds.
The more we replay with thoughts, words and pictures, the more we feel the feelings.
We create a “go to” place like playing a song over and over again.
We press the “replay” button every time we want to remember something.

To be free of past pain is to forgive and erase what was.
To move on requires that we undo what is no longer true.
To release is to let go and not replay the same scene in our minds.
To create a new experience requires us to seek what we desire.

Remembering the good, beautiful and hopeful can be enjoyed over and over.
Appreciating the good in life in our memories is of value to revitalize and feel good.
Valuing what is valuable is a primary way to encourage love within us now.
Re-playing the songs, feelings, experiences we love will instill hope and faith in the future.

The past is truly gone.
Whatever we hang onto is a conscious or unconscious choice.
Some want to understand what happened.
Some want to fix and regain what was.
Some wish they could free themselves.
Some believe what was will always be.

However we frame past experiences is what we believe is true.
Our fixation on what we felt and thought, heard and saw, denies there was something else.
We need to allow our judgments, fears, guilt and blame to be washed away again .
It may take some time to process and clean the stain from our memory.

Conscientiously seek positive memories.
Replay the good pictures and feelings.
Look forward to what will be by releasing the story.
Stop telling and retelling what is painful and no longer here.

Forgive yourself for hurting yourself with pain.
Forgive yourself for continuing to blame the past.
Affirm you can release and let go and allow Goodness in your life.
Renew your mind by focusing on what you truly desire.

If you need a process:
Write down everything you still judge, fear, hate, or causes pain.
Give it your blessings as you release it all with throwing it away.
I release everything to be used for good.

Loving us in living for today at peace with what is.

What Shall It Be?


Affirmation:
I am here to be true to the Love within me.
I am responsible for listening within to my way home.
I choose the fun, safe and easy way to live.
I am free to forgive and choose again and again.


What Shall It Be Today?

What shall I do today?
Where shall I go today?
To whom shall I speak?
What shall I say?

Can I honestly say I want to give only love?
Am I willing to go where I am guided?
Shall I speak to everyone I encounter in a kind way?
How shall I speak with love, respect and trust?

“This is the day the Good within me shall make.
I will be glad and rejoice in it.”
If I want only Good, I will share only Good.
If I do not know what I want, I may allow less than Good to be.

Changing my mind does change my life.
I can choose how I want to think and speak and interact.
I will choose what is Good for me with all those I encounter.
I will give the Love I have and Am as a Loving Reminder.

Goodness lives and moves and has its being within me.
Love lives through me as me in all I do and see.
I can be whatever I choose, since I am master of my destiny.
Let us begin to take full responsibility for what we share and experience.

I am free.
Free to live with open-mindedness and trust.
I am free to go and do and be as I choose.
Whatever I do and Wherever I go, I am free.

I write this for you and for me.
I know because I am.
I am because I choose to be.
And so it is, I am free.

Life invites me to play and create.
Life encourages me to invite others to play and create.
Life shows me what is fun, safe and easy for me.
Life gives me infinite opportunity to change my mind.

How can it be we get stuck?
How can we get lost?
How do we make the choice so complicated?
I care so I can choose again and again.

For me “fun, safe and easy” is my guide.
Being happy and at peace is my way.
When I forget or neglect, I am in the dark.
I choose to follow what is light and shines through me.

May you choose what is right and true for you.
May you follow the light within you.
May you live with love at your center.
May you enjoy the life you have chosen.

Loving us all in our freedom to choose!

Do What You Want!


Affirmations:
I honor my values and priorities in what I do each day.
I take impeccable care of my own health, happiness and fulfillment.
I know my trust and freedom is a loving example for others.
I trust humanity to learn from their own choices, self-forgiveness and new choices.

(Do the purpose exercise below!)

Do You Know What You Really Want?

When you are living your own way, you will be happy.
When you do what you really want to do, you are free.
When you listen and follow your heart’s desire, you live well.
When you care enough to give yourself the best, others will too.

Loving yourself is a clue to happiness and peace.
Many do not understand what it feels like to love yourself.
You must trust the choices that you make.
You free yourself to be the One You Are.

I spent Thanksgiving quietly with Robert, my spiritual partner and husband of 30+ years.
We enjoy out time together both in silence, doing our own work and spiritual practice.
We work well together in meals, shopping, sharing and creating our life of service.
We have never argued or fought, because we take responsibility for our own happiness.

Can you imagine what it is to not fight or get angry with others?
Have you consider how you can mind your own business?
Do you see how to set yourself and others free to be and do what they really want?
Are you ready and willing to be true to yourself without distraction or disappointment?

I love the work I do, writing, counseling and coaching, sharing wisdom and love.
I enjoy creating beautiful spaces, inspiring relationships, healthy lifestyle and happy living.
My life works because I am free to undo and recreate what is true for me naturally.
I need not complain or delay or effort or get approval, because I honor and respect myself.

To step forward in confidence requires listening within to myself to know where I am going.
To be filled with inspiration requires observing what fills me with life energy and joy.
To enjoy my life asks only that I take full responsibility for everything I think, do and say.
To have an abundant life is always knowing and living what I really want with clarity.

Each one of us can easily give up our excuses by taking the risk to live our own way.
We can stop waiting for others to guide us and choose what is right for ourselves.
We have the opportunity everyday to be responsible for knowing and living our truth.
We are able when we are willing to relinquish what no longer serves our happiness and peace.

I am inspired by the writing I do each and everyday.
I am fulfilled by the work I do with coaching and counseling everyday.
I appreciate the life I have created for myself and all the blessings I experience.
I learn from everyone and everything to clarify even more accurately what I really want.

When I watch a movie, play or TV show I do not value, I leave and make a new choice.
When I eat what doesn’t feel healthy or right for me, I stop eating and choose again.
When I am in a place that is not highest and best for my energy, I excuse myself.
Only I can discern what is Good for me and I take full responsibility.

If you know what you really want, choose it for yourself.
Take full responsibility for your choices.
If you are in conflict, clarify your values and priorities.
Do what is really true for you.

Always communicate your choices and changes when others are involved.
Be aware you must clear the air, so you are not left with guilt and resentment.
Trust and free others to choose for themselves as well and let them know.
Be good for yourself and you will be better for and with others.

What is best for you, is best for others.
You are happier, healthier and more inspired with Love.
You will teach by example that others can free themselves too.
Always loving, trusting and freeing You,
Betty Lue
