Fear of the #unknown may find you frozen: Frozen in your tracks, terrified of the uncertainty of what is to come. So fearful that you remain where you are, a place that feels, in some way, shape or form lacking.

You know that Life Is Short, and you want to Move Past Your Fears, you want to be courageous; you want to step out of the now and move toward your compelling future. You want to do something, make a different, but there you are, looking at the space between where you are and where you want to be. You feel the knot in your stomach tighten, your heart quickens.

You could fall. You could fail. Again, you remind yourself, “Life Is Short. I must Move Past My Fears.” You endeavor to take your first step.

Here, 10 Quotes about the #Unknown, to inspire you to move away from fear; toward your compelling future.

10 Quotes to Fearlessly Move Into the #Unknown

Faith and doubt both are needed—not as antagonists, but working side by side to take us around the unknown curve. ~ Lillian Smith

People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Grief is perhaps an unknown territory for you. You might feel both helpless and hopeless without a sense of a ‘map’ for the journey. Confusion is the hallmark of a transition. To rebuild both your inner and outer world is a major project. ~ Anne Grant

Every man needs his Siren
To check his courage and strength
When he hears her song
In his travels through the unknown. ~ Dejan Stojanovic

There are things known and things unknown and in between are the doors of perception. ~ Aldous Huxley

When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for you to stand upon or you will be taught to fly. ~ Patrick Overton

One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end. ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

The longer one lives, the more mysterious life seems. ~ Francis Brett Young

The true adventurer goes forth aimless and uncalculating to meet and greet unknown fate. ~ O. Henry

I believe in a long, prolonged, derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown. ~ Jim Morrison

Best Weight Loss Tips: Are You Okay? Really?

okayIf you spend the day (all of it or any part of it) pretending that you are happy when you are not, pretending to fit in when you don’t, pretending to be okay when you are not okay, I’d like to suggest that you simply try being okay with not being okay.

Pretending is exhausting, isn’t it? Depressing too, no? And honestly, it is a “red light” behavior. The more you pretend to be (or feel) what you are not, the more likely you are to hit the fridge.

Be okay with not being okay!

Kick in the Tush Tuesday: Just How Negative Are 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, can help you to … Let Go of All that Weighs You Down

Have you ever heard the expression “You are what you eat?” Yes? Well, Our Lady of Weight Loss has a different spin on things. She says, “You are what you say.”

Our Lady of Weight Loss wisely points out that you have been embedding negative and/or positive self talk patterns into the deepest parts of your mind since early childhood.

Because “You are What You Say (aloud and inside your mind),” and because positive self talk has the power to increase self-confidence, reduce stress and basically make your life infinitely more enjoyable, sending ripples of happiness throughout your world, I encourage you to Get Hip to Your Self Talk.

Is your self-talk primarily positive, or mostly negative? Are you sure?

Here follow a few strategies that can help you become more aware of your inner dialogue. AWARENESS is the first step.

4 Steps: Get Hip to Your Self-Talk

Write It. At night and in the morning, jot dot a general summary of your thoughts. Today is; today will be; today was … Don’t judge it; just let it rip and then read it.

Stop It. It’s as simple as that! When you hear yourself saying something negative … STOP yourself in your tracks by saying, “Stop!” It’s more powerful to say it aloud. (I said “simple,” not “easy.”)

Snap It. I’ve heard that some people wear a rubber band around their wrist, and when they hear themselves saying something negative, they snap it! I don’t know how I feel about the rubber band strategy, but if you are really deep into negativity, you might want to snap it!

Neutralize It. When you catch yourself saying something negative, turn it around. Instead of “I can’t do it,” say, “I don’t now how.” “Instead of “I’m in pain,” say, “My body (or mind) is experiencing discomfort.” Instead of “today was an awful day,” say, “today was trying and the best part of it was _____.”

Got it? Good!

Eat This: Lose Weight – Zucchini, Chickpea Salad

Eat Healthy!

Eat Healthy!

I’ve gone mad with power, “spiralizing” my way through the kitchen.   Cucumber noodles, zucchini noodles, beet noodles, alike!  I don’t generally endorse products, but I’m having so much fun with the Spiralizer,  the best gadget/kitchen aide that I’ve purchased in eons, that I just had to share the excitement and the vegetable recipes.

Because, Our Lady of Weight Loss devotees, and Tushkateers (members of the Kick in the Tush Club), if you want to increase your healthy food intake and/or lose weight, then eat more vegetables!   Sometimes it’s that simple!

This Zucchini & Garbanzo Bean (a.k.a. Chickpea) Salad is a great summer salad.  No hot oven blasting, just you spiralizing, in the kitchen, humming a happy tune!

Ingredients:
3 small green zucchinis, spiralized
1 can (14 or 15 oz.) Garbanzo Beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 medium size orange bell pepper, seeded, and cut into long skinny slices
(Red or yellow work well, but orange is one of my favorite colors.)
3 gloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons lemon, freshly squeezed
1.5 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped fine

Instructions:
Spiralize the zucchini. Place in large bowl.
Add garbanzo beans, chopped red onion, and orange pepper.
In small bowl, whisk together the remainder of ingredients.
Drizzle dressing over zucchini mix. Gently toss with love.
Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours.
Stir or shake it about as you remember to do so.  (Casual cooking here!)

Enjoy!
