Imperfection or perfectionism comes up quite a lot in my work. People tell me that they are perfectionists. I encourage them to strive to be comfortable with imperfection; to see the beauty in flawed.

In other words, instead of experiencing imperfection as a shortcoming, a deficiency and/or weakness, why not see it and feel it simply as an inexactness and inaccuracy that presents an opportunity to see and feel the state of things as they are. The “isness.”

Here, 8 Perfectly IMPERFECT Quotes to chew on

To banish imperfection is to destroy expression, to check exertion, to paralyze vitality. ~ John Ruskin

We are all wonderful, beautiful wrecks. That’s what connects us—that we’re all broken, all beautifully imperfect. ~ Emilio Estevez

I’ve learned recently to love imperfection a lot because it shines such a big light on God’s grace. And if someone has grace for you that’s when you feel their love the most and they see you for who you are and they love you anyway. ~ Lacey Mosley

I believe that the measure of my soul is my capacity to love imperfect people. ~ Joseph Grenny

But those who seek only reassurance from life will never be more than tourists—seeing everything and trying to possess what can only be felt. Beauty is the shadow of imperfection. ~ Simon Van Booy

Imperfection is in some sort essential to all that we know in life. ~ John Ruskin

To accomplish the perfect perfection, a little imperfection helps. ~ Dejan Stojanovic

But life isn’t something that should be edited. Life shouldn’t be cut. The only way you’ll ever discover what it truly means to be alive and human is by sharing the full experience of what it means to be human and each blemish and freckle that comes with it. ~ Iain Thomas

Ready to Turn on the Music and Lose It! – contact Janice Taylor, Life & Weight Loss Success Coach, Hypnotherapist, Artist, Author, Positarian

Music is powerful. A true gift that keeps on giving.  Music activates the same feel good center of your brain that food does!  Here, 5 ways that music can positively affect you!

1. Listen to music: Lose weight. (Wow, that was easy!)
And … there’s more . . .

2. Fight Off the Common Cold: Listening to music lowers the stress hormone cortisol, boosts the feel-good endorphins and fortifies the immune system by raising levels of immunoglobulin A, a prime defense against upper respiratory infection.

3. Chase those blues away: There are minor chords and major chords; and while the minor chords tend to bring you down, the major chords can and do raise the spirits. Music sweetens temperament, increases feelings of optimism, calm and joy.

4. Spin Sister: Listen to music while spinning, running, trotting and your endurance levels will soar. You’ll hang in there longer and feel happier for it.

5. Sleep Baby Sleep: Play 45 minutes of your fav soft music before you get into your comfy bed and you will effectively lower your heart rate, slower your respiration and enjoy a good quality sleep.
What’s your favorite genre of music? What gets your booty to shakin’? What calms and soothes? What’s your favorite lullaby?

Sometimes it’s just that simple.

I was working with a client this morning who happened to be having a particularly tough day.  She was suffering. As we did our best to unpack, look at and ultimately work through her suffering; she let it go, which left her free to enjoy her day!

10 Simple Steps: How to Survive a Tough Day

1. Keep Going!
If you’re going through Hell, keep going. – Winston Churchill

2.  Let Go of Your Worries!
Don’t let your mind bully your body into believing it must carry the burden of its worries. – Astrid Alauda

3.  Stop Resisting!
Pain is a relatively objective, physical phenomenon; suffering is our psychological resistance to what happens. Events may create physical pain, but they do not in themselves create suffering. Resistance creates suffering. Stress happens when your mind resists what is… The only problem in your life is your mind’s resistance to life as it unfolds. – Dan Millman

4.  Use Your Angry for Something Positive!
In times of great stress or adversity, it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive. – Lee Iacoca

5.  Watch and Choose Your Thoughts Wisely!
The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another. – William James

6.  Breathe!
Stress is basically a disconnection from the earth, a forgetting of the breath. Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Nothing is that important. Just lie down. – Natalie Goldberg

7.  Stand Up!
Fall seven times, stand up eight. – Japanese proverb

8.  Hang In and Hang On!
When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it, and hang on. – Thomas Jefferson

9.  Sing Your Song!
A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song. – Maya Angelou

10. Live NOW!
You don’t get to choose how you’re going to die. Or when. But you can decide how you’re going to live now. – Joan Baez

People often begin their journey on the road to Sveltesville without fully knowing how they are going reach their goal(s). They “decide” to go on a “diet.” They want to lose weight. They are willing to change their relationship with food, but they haven’t truly thought through the specifics of a solid, sustainable, “how to” plan.

People say that they want to be able to “control” their eating. When they stop to think about the it all, they often feel overwhelmed, as well as defeated, depressed and deprived (The 3 D’s!

Here’s a new way of thinking about what you need to do/want to do/can do that will ultimately change your mind.

As Albert Einstein said, “You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it.”

Ready to change your mind?

Instead of trying to control your future, control how you eat, control your weight … you might want to CREATE IT!!!

Create vs. Control

How to Create it!!!!   When we are clear about what we want, when we have a clear vision; the how to manage it; mysteriously shows up!  Imagine that!!!

A clear vision of the future enables us to make those moment-to-moment choices that bring us closer to our weight loss goals (or any goal).  The vision carries us.  It is crucial!

Imagine that you asked two friends “What do you want in life?”  One says, “To be happy.”  Period.  End of report.  No details!  But the other friend paints a vivid picture for you, “I want to be financially independent in three years, live in a ranch house in the desert, meditate every day for 3 hours facing east, and while I’m chanting, the heirloom tomatoes are growing in my vegetable garden.”  You get the point, yes?   “To be happy”  What does that mean?  Weigh (ha) too vague!

Rather than beating your head against the wall trying to CONTROL it all; let’s CREATE it all!

What do you want to create in your life?
Make a list, check it twice and share …
