#OneWord Thursday: 13 (a baker’s dozen) Quotes to Ignite Your #Inner-Child

Ignite Your Inner Child: Feed Her Art by Janice Taylor, Life and Wellness Coach, Hypnotherapist, Weight Loss Expert, Author, Artist, Positarian

This week I had two rich, fully satisfying and illuminating client conversations about the Inner Child. My inner-child, their inner-child, your inner-child is the divine child that lives within.  She reflects our true self. She is pure; she is beautiful.

I suspect your inner-child would like your attention, and she’d like to be set free. Set free to create, to play, to celebrate. And, I am fairly certain that she’d like her crayons back!

Read through, ingest on a cellular level, and then allow your imagination to roam and run.

13 (a baker’s dozen) Quotes to Ignite Your Inner Child.

In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Creativity represents a miraculous coming together of the uninhibited energy of the child with its apparent opposite and enemy, the sense of order imposed on the disciplined adult intelligence. ~Norman Podhoretz

She held herself until the sobs of the child inside subsided entirely. I love you, she told herself. It will all be okay. ~ H. Raven Rose, Shadow Selves

Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the “creative bug” is just a wee voice telling you, ‘I’d like my crayons back, please.” ~ Hugh MacLeod

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ~Pablo Picasso

Let us liberate ourselves from any form of control. Let us focus at the inner drum, where the rhythm aligns with that of our heart. The measure of responsibility equals to the need for evolution. Just listen, the inner child, let it whisper in your ear. ~ Grigoris Deoudis

Imagination is our inner-child and creativity, its playground. ~ Jaeda DeWalt

The best stories come from deep within us and are of us. Either our inner child comes out to play and makes all things possible, or we mold our characters and events from our own experiences, or our dreams of wanting to experience. ~ Judith Kohnen

We nurture our creativity when we release our inner child. Let it run and roam free. It will take you on a brighter journey. ~ Serina Hartwell

There’s a Child in All of Us! No matter what the number may say or how old someone looks they started out as a child… And that child lives inside! -LOVE YOUR INNER CHILD- ~As you connect to the beautiful inner child, miracles happen~ Let your inner child run wild! Remember the days when you were innocent and carefree and discover that you are still that hopefully, wide-eyed kid at heart. ~ Angie Karan Krezos

Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air – explode softly – and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth – boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn’t go cheap, either – not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination. ~Robert Fulghum

I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things…. I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind. ~Leo Buscaglia

What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult. ~Sigmund Freud

Our Lady of Weight Loss’s A Baker’s Dozen: Thirteen Ways to Reward Yourself at the End of a Hard Day as you Revel in the Glory of Your Greatness!

Many of my clients tell me that they feel as if they are entitled to a treat after a long, hard day at work or a complicated day at home.  They say, “I deserve to have a piece of cake.”

The truth is that you deserve way more than a slice of cake, (no, I am not inferring that you deserve the entire cake!). Cake only lasts for a short second and then it turns on a dime (or a crumb) into a self-deprecating rant.

You deserve to have what you really, really want, which I believe is to feel at peace, to love and accept yourself, to be free of any and all self-deprecating and self-sabotaging thoughts. Letting go of the negativity will lighten your load, for sure!

Instead of turning to a piece of cake … try turning a deaf ear to cake and one or more of Our Lady of Weight Loss’s A Baker’s Dozen: Thirteen Ways to Reward Yourself at the End of a Hard Day as you Revel in the Glory of Your Greatness (Whew! Now there’s a mouthful!)

  1. Curl up in the corner and read that book that you’ve had your eye on (oh, could it be Our Lady of Weight Loss!)
  2. Download your favorite i-Tune for only $1.29 (more or less). A cheap thrill!
  3. Order groceries on-line, with your feet up. (A weigh-safer way to shop, even if you are hungry).
  4. Go for a ride on a motorcycle (wear a helmet, please!).
  5. Send the laundry out – let someone else fold the towels.
  6. String a hammock in your back yard and swing baby, swing.
  7. Get a manicure and a 10-minute massage! If you usually get a plain jane color, go bold – if you usually go bold, tone it down.
  8. Go to the movies, alone. (So great not to have to worry if others like the movie, or not.)
  9. Take a walk on a hiking trail or in a park, or around your neighborhood. Walking instead of driving about will give you a different perspective on where you live.
  10. Take in deep cleansing breaths. Don’t underestimate breathing. It’s an amazing thing!
  11. Rent a convertible and go for a joy ride. Blast the radio or your favorite CD while toolin’ around the country side.
  12. Go Mehndi. Mehndi is the Indian word for Henna. Henna is a beautiful and natural plant product that stains the skin a reddish brown color. When applied properly and in intricate designs you have a natural and temporary “tattoo” that gradually fades away as the skin regenerates.
  13. Dye your hair a new color – or brighten up your highlights.For more solid, smart, utterly useful and fun advice, join Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Kick in the Tush Club/FB!And–for the full skinny sign up for Janice Taylor’s (monthly) Kick in the Tush Club newsletter!

Kick in the Tush Tuesday: Turnips, Weight Loss Handicaps and Gym Bunnies?

Our Lady of Weight Loss is well aware that some of us have bigger challenges to overcome than others, so she had me design a formula for computing our weight loss handicaps, enabling us to compete with those with high metabolisms, those who forget to eat, and the gym bunnies of the world.

How to Calculate and Use Your Weight Loss Handicap

Note: Handicaps are earned. They are for professional “dieters” ONLY.  In order to receive a handicap, you have had to be on at least five diets in your lifetime. (I suspect that qualifies most of us.)

What’s your handicap?

Instructions:
Step 1: Total the pounds lost in your last attempt to lose weight over the course of the last five weeks you were on said diet.

Step 2: Multiply that number by the number of children you have living at home.

Step 3: If you are living with an adult who insists on eating in front of you and who is insensitive to your weight loss mood swings, factor in an additional point. If he or she is truly impossible, give yourself another 3 pounds. Add to above number.

Step 4: Multiply that number by 3.

Step 5: Divide by 5. (Slice off fractions, as you would slivers of cake.)

Step 6: For every 10 points, give yourself one handicap point. Those who have a handicap of 10 or more are called “turnips.”

How to use your handicap:
The next time someone asks you how much you lost this week, feel free to add your handicap into the equation. This system
should level the field for those who are competing at group meetings, in offices or at home! Or for those who are letting the
Scales of Injustice get to them.

Remember, it’s only a number. Have some fun with it!
