Completing 2023




I complete every relationship and project well.

I learn from everyone and everything.

I forgive the past quickly and easily.

I choose to begin each day with a clean slate.

Honorable Closure 

When ending the year 2023, it is valuable to end on a positive note.

Endings often portend beginnings.

It is helpful and healthful to end well.

Choose to forgive judgments and end with blessings.

I complete every project with honor and gratitude.

What is set aside is put away with a completion timeline.

I finish what I start with a sense of gratitude and fulfillment.

The energy of each day carries over to the next day.

When I finish a meal, the kitchen is left clear for the next meal.

When I finish the day, the house is left orderly for the next day.

When I leave my computer, I leave it ready for the next communication.

When I do the laundry, I put everything away, folded and hung in the closet.

The more we finish what we start, the more mental, physical and inspired energy we have.

It is valuable to feel a sense of completion and “Job well done.”

It is valuable to demonstrate and teach our families how to maintain enthusiasm for work.

A key ingredient is to be pleased with all the work we do by ending well.

A Happy and Prosperous New Year depends on completing 2023 with honorable closure.

Take time to do the process below:

What I learned from 2023:

What I regret in 2023:

The challenges I experienced in 2023:

What I appreciate and value in 2023:

When you have the feeling of satisfaction, you are complete.

Loving you,

Choose Peace with release.

Choose Life with creativity.

Your life is your masterpiece.

Live it well.

Happy Memories





All I give and receive is the Goodness I remember.

A happy life comes from choosing happy memories.

I easily let go of all that no longer works for me.

I love joyfully with clarity and purpose.

Happy Memories

Do you remember how to be joyful and delighted?

Do you remember what it feels like to be fully alive?

Do you remember how to live in a safe world?

Do you remember how to be in love?

“Re-membering” is bringing all the pieces together again.

To remember happiness is to bring happy memories into our mind, 

To remember is to feel the feelings of being fully joyful.

To remember is to embody the feelings of happiness.

We remember why we are here, when we feel truly joyful.

We remember what we are here to be, when are reminded of happy moments.

We remember who we really are, when we embody true happiness.

We are here to remember our authentic selves.

When we hold negative memories, we distract ourselves from now.

When we believe the past is here, we continue to have unhappy memories.

When we forget to delete what no longer is, we repeat the past again and again.

When we fail to erase our mistakes and moments of pain, we do not want to remember.

The work in life, everyday and especially at New Year’s, is to clear the past.

Remember only what inspires and elevates your thoughts and feelings.

Remember what you want to repeat and recreate for the joy of it.

Remember what is meaningful and hopeful and gives love to all.

The holidays offer lots of memories to most people, both good and bad.

The work in life is to always heal what was hurtful and remember what is helpful.

We can choose to replay the past hurts or create present helps.

The mind will respond to your selective remembering.

Be selective in your imaging.

Remove what is not helpful.

Restore what is beneficial.

Choose what you value.

My traditional New Year’s Celebration includes letting go of the past.

Washing away mistakes, distractions, distrust, and disappointment is key.

Write and burn what you no longer want or need to repeat.

Be thorough in your mental house-keeping.

Use a ritual or self-created ceremony and declaration.

“I forgive and release all that is not good, loving and healthy for me.”

“ My mind automatically erases everything that is not wholly loving and true.”

“The past it not here and cannot touch me.”

When you begin again, you can choose miracles of love in your life.

When you start anew, you will see yourself and your world differently.

When you free the past errors, you will have space to attract new creations.

When you undo all fear and separation, you will trust the joy and connection you feel.

Life begins anew whenever you choose it to.

Loving you, 

Betty Lue

Free To Be




I free myself to fully Be Who I AM.

I free others to freely be Who they are.

I am grateful for the diversity and unique expression in everyone.

I trust myself to be a safe place for each to be authentic, creative and REAL.

Free Your Self To BE!

What can you do to free yourself to be fully you?

What holds you back from being truly authentic?

How do you keep yourself in check in your life?

What rules to you live by and whose approval do you seek?

There are many teachings and beliefs we learn early in life.

We listen to parents and teachers and what gets their approval.

We observe what works and what doesn’t work in the world.

We are programmed to be externally referring in our choices.

Does this please my parent, teachers and friends?

Will I get ahead by talking and behaving this way?

Do I fit with the people around me and how they act?

Do my actions, language and choices conform to what is popular?

People do not spend quality time with others, learning their values and beliefs.

It seems that most people pay attention to others via media, texting, face book, etc.

It seems that young people admire those in public view and follow their lead.

It seems that ‘getting along’, following and belonging are among the highest values.

Where have the leaders gone?

Where are those who speak up for the rights of others?

Where is authenticity, originality and new thought?

Where are those who express themselves creatively?

If you are one who doesn’t follow the crowd, appreciate yourself!

If you are someone who expresses your truth without offense to others, value yourself!

If you are among those who lead others to do good and create good, enjoy your part!

If you are true to you and give always and only your best, count yourself blessed!

What you can do to free yourself is listen to what feels right and true for you.

What you can do to free yourself is to pay attention to when it feels wrong and stop!

What you can do to free yourself is listen to your heart, your conscience and inner guide..

What you can do to free yourself is forgive every mistake, yours and others, immediately.

We are easily tamed and changed and delayed by the criticism we have learned.

People often fear being wrong and so don’t even step out of the learned boxes of society.

We may fear judgment, being shamed , rejected and humiliated by others .

People learn to let others lead and then blame them for their own lack of leadership

If you feel safe by conforming and following what others do, you hold back..

If you still try to please and get others approval, you will do what they want you to do.

If you think playing it safe is the best way to live, you will hide your inner light.

If you wait until another goes forth , you may miss your time to shine and share.

Time to be free and see All that You Can Be,

Betty Lue

May you be happy and well.

May you remember to be loving.

May you find peace in all you say and do.

May this day bring only Goodness to you.

Only Love prevails.

What Is Working?




I quickly stop doing whatever is not for the best of all.

I easily forgive and release whatever is not loving and kind.

I quit thinking, saying and doing what is not helpful and well-intentioned.

I stop and center myself with the best I know in mind.

Does It Work?

If your life isn’t working, STOP!

If your relationships aren’t working, STOP!

If your money isn’t working, STOP!

If your health isn’t working, STOP!

Stop doing the same things you have always done, expecting a different result.

Stop thinking, speaking and behaving as you always have, believing this time it will be different.

Stop making up that somehow someone out there will show you a better way.

Stop judging, blaming, criticizing someone else for what isn’t working for you.

We keep going, because our ego wants to be right.

We keep doing the same thing, because we don’t want to be the problem.,

We keep choosing what is familiar believing that this time it will work.

We keep trying over and over falsely hoping for a change externally.

The purpose of stopping is take a time out to clear our thinking.

The purpose of stopping is not quitting, but stopping the ineffective methods.

The purpose of stopping is to break the cycle of insanity.

The purpose of stopping is to undo the dysfunctional reactive patterns.

Time outs are for parents to give themselves and the kids a chance to calm down and choose what works!

Stepping away from an upset is time to reconnect with what is best for everyone.

Taking deep breaths clears the fear, drama, anger and emotional distortions.

Pausing for a walk, meditation, writing in a journal, forgiving and doing affirmations is to think clearly.

I recommend not talking when upset.

I recommend not expressing hurtful feelings.

I recommend dumping toxic material in private.

I recommend clarifying your goal or intention.

When we react emotionally, we are seeking either to get others to help us or to give others our upset.

When others are calm, reasonable and able to be helpful, it works.

When others are upset, fearful, irrational or unable to be helpful, nothing will work.

Often we simply spread the pain, fear, drama, unhappiness and lack of love to another.

Consider taking full responsibility.

Consider being the conscious one.

Consider making amends with "I’m sorry, please forgive me, I love you and Thank you."

Consider forgiving your self for making up the upsetting situation, thoughts and feelings.

Life is the practice grounds for clearing the pain and fear, guilt and blame from yourself and others.

Life is the place in which we can make ourselves safe to work out our own issues without hurting others.

Life is the experimental laboratory to stop ineffective means to solve a problem.

Life is the learning ground in which we openly discover what works and does not work.

Bless us each and all for observing, exploring and learning better ways.

Betty Lue

Let us forgive the judgments of mistakes we make and choose again for a better way!
