Do What You Want!

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

Based on the answers above, develop a short paragraph outlining your purpose. Take the three top priorities from the four areas to which you just committed answers. Construct a statement that explains what you are beginning to sense in your purpose. This can be a work in progress. What is important is to commit to something in writing. Your purpose can be anything you want it to be and it can include anything that is important to you.
