It’s About Time!

I am responsible respectful and cooperative.
I take care of myself and others with my words and actions.
I treat others with caring and compassion.
The more I take impeccable care of myself, the more I am able to respond with love.

Is it time to be True to You today?
Is it time to choose the part you play?
Is it time to stop pretending to be?
Is it time to play you for real, so you can really see?

Have you learned to complain and cry?
Have you learned to always ask “Why”?
Have you learned to take responsibility?
Have you learned to blame and condemn?

Is it time to give up pretending to be weak?
Is it time to stop giving away your power of choice?
Is it time to choose what you really seek?
Is it time to listen to your power of voice?

Some would rather not take responsibility for who they are and how they be.
Some would rather stay afraid and defend.
Some choose to forgive and make amends.
Some have chosen to laugh and let go.

Each one of us has the choice to say ‘Yes’ or say ‘No’.
You can choose to stop or say “Let’s go!”
What will it be today or tomorrow?
Are you ready to be joyful and forgive the sorrow?

Love waits on welcome, not on time.
Love is the choice to lose or to find.
Love is where you find yourself again.
Love is when you stop playing “pretend.”

Stop being unkind with thoughts or words or deeds.
Stop nagging, threatening or saying something mean.
Stop gossiping or making others wrong and bad.
Stop pretending like you don’t know what is right and good.

It’s about time we grow up and take responsibility.
When we know what is good, let us choose that way.
When we are conflicted, tempted to be bad, let’s stop ourselves.
When we have made a mistake, confess, forgive and learn.

Mature people take responsibility.
Mature adults take the consequences and they learn.
Mature grownups don’t behave like teenagers or children.
The world needs all adults to be responsible with what they think and do and say.

It’s about time to take care of ourselves in every way.
It’s about time to care for our children and our parents.
It’s about time to care for our home, our job and our finances.
It’s about time to think before we act and do what is right and best for everyone.

Let’s get over doing whatever we want, and take responsibility for doing what is good.
I applaud you for being a responsible mature adult in what you think and do and say.
I appreciate you being a role model and teaching others by your example.
I respect and honor you for living your life in a way that shows everyone you really care.

Loving you,
Betty Lue

“Our Deepest Fear”

Our deepest fear

is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light,

not our darkness,
that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves,

“Who am I to be brilliant,

gorgeous, talented and fabulous?”

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking

so that others won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.

It is not just in some of us,

it is in everyone,

and as we let our own light shine

we unconsciously give other people
to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear

our presence automatically liberates others.
