Time to Stop

I stop all negative thoughts, words and behavior.
I choose what is for the highest good of all.
I release false beliefs and limiting patterns.
I forgive myself for hurting or limiting myself and others.
Pay attention to the caution signs.
Pay attention to your intuition.
Pay attention to what you feel.
Pay attention to what you really want.

When we hear “Slow Down”, do we respond or react?
When we know what is best, do we say Yes or say No?
When we get a request inside or out, do we comply or rebel?
All of us have choices everyday in every way.

We may put others’ “needs” before our own.
We may make our own will our decision maker.
We may let schedule or commitments or money be King.
When we override what we hear within, we may be at risk.

I do what I love and love what I do.
I enjoy my life and the choices I make.
I make time to take time for me each day.
I listen to my inner guide and honor what I hear.

Life is constantly giving us feedback.
Sometimes in the moment, we actually know.
Sometimes the awareness comes in meditation or dreams.
Sometimes we get the information from friends or media.

What we do with the feedback is key to making helpful adjustments.
When we are resistant, we may disregard.
When we are fearful, we may cover up.
When we are ignorant, we may not want to notice.

When I hear, slow down on the highway, I slow down.
When I hear, sit down and take a break, I take a break.
When I hear to change my diet, I make adjustments.
When I know to go to bed and rest, I do what is mine to do.

The key for us is to stop before there is a problem.
We can change our habits and choices, before it is too late.
We can change our thoughts and emotions, before we get hurt.
We can change our behavior and words, before we hurt others.

Stop and take a break before getting angry.
Stop and count to 10 before you say unkind words.
Stop and change your bad habits before you get sick.
Stop and forgive so you can choose again.

Loving our willingness to choose what is highest and best for everyone!
Betty Lue

Forgive the past.
Learn from any mistakes.
Heal your disappointments and hurts.
Grow with your goals.
Live with gratitude.

You make the difference you want to see.
No one else can do it for you.

Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz
Take nothing personally.
Make no assumptions.
Keep your agreements.
Always give your best.

Recommendations for All Relationships
With mates, partners, friends, children, co-workers, etc.

Keep your agreements faithfully.
(Communicate changes honestly and immediately.)

Give more than you expect to receive.
Do more than your “fair” share.

Receive everything with open appreciation.
Express your thanks sincerely and take nothing for granted.

Live your own life in integrity and on purpose.
Clarify, communicate and live your mission, your path, your principles and values.  

Be responsible for yourself, your work and live your life impeccably.
Don’t expect others to pick up after you or take care of you.

Stop using, blame, criticism or guilt to control or manipulate.
Stop making demands, threats or using neediness to get your way.

Communicate effectively and respectfully.
Request a time and place and tone of voice that works for both parties.

Be your best self in all circumstances.
Focus always on teaching by example. (and apologize immediately when you forget or neglect.)

Use your time together wisely.
Focus on meaningful, positive and inspiring conversation and activities.

Spend time, money, energy and resources only on what you value and want to increase.
Waste nothing in your relationship.  No arguing, pettiness, emotional dumping or negativity.

As circumstances change, there is a need to re-commit to what works for all participants.
Families need to meet to look at the specific needs of each individual to be at their best.
Couples need to ensure that the relationship is “serving all parties.
Business partners need to return to their original agreement and consider changing roles as needed.

Life requires that we be in relationship.
With respect for ourselves and each other there is open communication.
With responsibility for the quality of our relationships, there is a willingness to seek what works for all.
With cooperation there is encouragement to listen for ways to serve the needs of everyone.
When everyone WINS, the relationships are harmonious, peaceful and enjoyable.

When you know who you are, you will love yourself.
When you live what you know, you will respect yourself.
When you do as you are guided, you will trust yourself.
When you love, trust and respect yourself, you will be whole and happy and free.
