9 Quotes: Fear Builds Walls Instead of #Bridges

Fear builds walls instead of bridges. I want a life of bridges, not walls. ~ Lisa Wingate, The Prayer Box

We are told never to cross a bridge until we come to it, but this world is owned by men who have “crossed bridges” in their imagination far ahead of the crowd. ~ Anonymous

To embark on the journey towards your goals and dreams requires bravery. To remain on that path requires courage. The bridge that merges the two is commitment. ~ Steve Maraboli

A bridge of silver wings stretches from the dead ashes of an unforgiving nightmare to the jeweled vision of a life started anew. ~ Aberjhani

Up on the Brooklyn Bridge a man is standing in agony, waiting to jump, or waiting to write a poem, or waiting for the blood to leave his vessels because if he advances another foot the pain of his love will kill him. ~ Henry Miller

Do not always walk on the bridge; there is also a world under the bridge! Try different worlds; discover different worlds! Do something different ~ Mehmet Murat ildan

I am where I am because of the bridges that I crossed. Sojourner Truth was a bridge. Harriet Tubman was a bridge. Ida B. Wells was a bridge. Madame C. J. Walker was a bridge. Fannie Lou Hamer was a bridge. ~ Oprah Winfrey

Being nice is one of many bridges on the road to Happiness. ~ Donna A. Favors

The wise man bridges the gap by laying out the path by means of which he can get from where he is to where he wants to go. ~ John Pierpont Morgan

Creative Bridge Building: 2 Steps from Dreams to Reality

“People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.” ~ Joseph F. Newton

When people ask me what I “do,” I tell them that I build bridges.

“Not like The Queensboro Bridge or the Golden Gate Bridge,” I say, “My clients and I, together, build a Creative Bridge that ultimately transforms their dreams into reality.”

The first step in Creative Bridge Building is to cast an honest eye, an observant eye, a loving eye at where you presently stand, and

2)  to recognize the walls that you have constructed that ultimately stop you from creating that which you so greatly desire.

Can you imagine, in your mind’s eye, where you currently stand and the walls that you have built around and through you? Walls that were perhaps initially constructed to keep you safe, but currently only serve to stop you.

Honestly looking at oneself with loving-kindness, with compassion is no easy task and it takes courage. I emphasis “loving and compassion.”  Should your observing take a judgmental, harsh turn, you’d actually be constructing yet another wall.

If that happens, note it, back up as it were and begin again.

You won’t be sorry that you made the effort for those who do are rewarded a thousand times over.

#KickTush: 5 Happy Steps – Smile and The Scales Of Injustice Will Smile with You?

"Your gain is my pain. Call me."  ~  Janice Taylor,  Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

“Your gain is my pain. Call me.” ~ Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

Recently, a client confessed that the number on the scales of injustice determines her mood for the day.  She is not alone, is she?  For those who have way too much invested in “that” number, here are some tips on the highs n’ lows of weighing in.

5 Happy Steps: Smile and The Scales Of Injustice Will Smile with You?

1.  Morning! If you are going to weigh yourself, do it first thing in the morning, when you are on “empty,” before you drink, eat or even breathe in too much air!  Naked, of course.  Be sure to find the right spot on the floor.  Note the number on the scales of injustice and then let it go.  No matter the number. Let it go.  Let it go.  Let it go.

2.  Note it!  Whatever the number, high, low or the same, note it.  Do not give it emotional juice.  Do not feed your weighty reaction.  The numbers can be and are deceptive. They can bounce as much as 5 pounds in one day.

3.  Do the Math!  Remembering that a pound equals 3,500 calories, could you have eaten over 17,000 extra calories in one day?  Not likely.  It’s difficult to gain or lose 5 pounds of excess weight in one day.

4.  Weigh Less: Be More!  You, dear Tushkateer, devotee of Our Lady of Weight Loss, are more than a number on the scale. Shift your focus to the positive changes that you are making.  Zero in on how you are beginning to feel differently about yourself.

5.  Smile!  As you weigh yourself, whether it’s daily or weekly or monthly, at the same time, say something positive, encouraging, maybe even loving to yourself.  Smile and the scales of injustice will smile with you!

I hope this attitude adjustment helps you to laugh it up while you are slimming down!

Dysfunctional Chef: Sweet Potato Salad

Your Gain Is My Pain...contact Janice Taylor, Life and Wellness Coach, Weight Loss Expert, Author, Artist, Positarian

Your Gain Is My Pain…Call Me: Janice Taylor, Life and Wellness Coach, Weight Loss Expert, Author, Artist, Positarian

Last night, we went to a small gathering; a dinner party. Big fun! Aside from the 5 yum food, the great conversation, giggles, chortles and belly laughs, we climbed up onto the roof and looked down on Tucson. What a magnificent view; magical place. Next time, I’ll bring my camera. Anyway…my contribution to the dinner was a sweet potato salad. Everyone loved it! Especially me :)

Sweet Potato Salad
Ingredients:
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1″ cubes (more or less)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
salt to taste
1 green onion, as thinly sliced as you can

Instructions:
Peel potatoes and cut into 1 inch cubes.
Fill a pot with cold water, add salt for cooking purposes (not too much), put cubes in and bring to boil.
When the potatoes are tender, drain and put aside.

While the sweets are cooling, in another bowl, whisk together the mustard, vinegar, olive oil, and salt. You may find, when you taste it before you drizzle it on the potatoes, that it’s too vinegary. BUT it mixes beautifully. The potatoes drink in the dressing!

Carefully toss potatoes with dressing.
Sprinkle the paper-thin green onion slices on top.
Serve!
