Since we moved cross-country, from New York City to Tucson, “friends and friendship” have been on my mind.  As we left New York City, we said see you soon to our dear, old friends, with a deep-seated intention of staying in touch, and visiting often! And when we arrived in Tucson, we said hello to our new friends, with an equally clear and strong intention of creating relationships with people with whom we can share our day-to-day happenings, and especially with whom we can laugh till it hurts. (A priority for me!)

These 13 Quotes, a Baker’s Dozen on Friendship are dedicated to both my old friends and new friends, who, as Anais Nin said, “represent a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born!”   Thank you for creating new worlds for and with me!

13 FRIENDSHIP Quotes, a Baker’s Dozen!

If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you. ~ A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves; it is not my nature. ~ Jane Austen

What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies. ~ Aristotle

Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything. ~ Muhammad Ali

It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?” ~ A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born. ~ Anais Nin, The Diary of Anais Nin, Vol 1

The capacity for friendship is God’s way of apologizing for our families. ~ Jay McInerney, The Last of the Savages

Never leave a friend behind. Friends are all we have to get us through this life–and they are the only things from this world that we could hope to see in the next. ~ Dean Koontz, Fear Nothing

Stay is a charming word in a friend’s vocabulary. ~ Amos Bronson Alcott, Concord Days
You can go through life and make new friends every year – every month practically – but there was never any substitute for those friendships of childhood that survive into adult years. Those are the ones in which we are bound to one another with hoops of steel. ~ Alexnder McCall Smith, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency

Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over. ~ Gloria Naylor

Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow ripening fruit. ~ Aristotle

It’s bullshit to think of friendship and romance as being different. They’re not. They’re just variations of the same love. Variations of the same desire to be close. ~ Rachel Cohn, Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List

Best Weight Loss Strategy: Stop it! Slow it! Add it???

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

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

Want to play a game that will blow the fat cells out of your mind and more!  It’s called the Traffic Light Game and here’s how you play!

FYI … 

It was taught to me by one of my star coaching clients, Mary! (You are all stars.) And I have to say, I’m having the best time with it. 
 Not only is it a fun game, but it has proven a great tool to heighten one’s ability to practice mindful eating!

Here’s how you play!!!

Today, pick one thing to STOP doing! Like – ugh – maybe it’s eating while standing up. Or – maybe you could stop taking bites of other people’s food? I dunno, but you do!!!

Today, pick one thing to SLOW down! Perhaps you’d like to actually chew your food slowly and taste it?! Now, there’s an idea.

Today, ADD something to your day. It could be food, like something healthy – perhaps, a juicy and delicious apple! Or, it could be a fun activity?!

What do you think? A fun game? Feeling more mindful? More aware? Let me know!

Kick in the Tush Tuesday: Spiritual Inertia Served Warm?

"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

Spiritual Inertia Served Warm?  Have you ever wondered how it is that after decades of time-saving inventions and new technologies that “free time” has almost disappeared from our culture?

“Lost time is never found again.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

Spiritual Inertia?
Are we time-poor, insolvent, bankrupt? Is “free time” a relic of the past? If this is the case, I do believe that we are in trouble. It could be that we are headed for spiritual inertia.

The great masters tell us that we need to carve out daily time for solitude. Not just to get away from the kids, or our boss, or the white noise of the day. Rather, we need to carve out a time where we can sit in solitude; a time in which we can explore our inner landscapes and unearth our passions and our purpose.

You may have imagined using your free time, your hour of solitude to head to the spa for a mani/pedi or a massage, or perhaps, you envisioned taking a solo stroll through the park. Lovely and worthwhile, I am sure.

Living With Meaning and Purpose
Consider utilizing this time to delve deep into your soul, to explore, investigate, to wonder – “what might I do that can give me the sense, the satisfaction, that I have lived fully and with meaning.”

If you already living what you deem an authentic life, with purpose and meaning, then ask yourself how you might carve out more time for inner exploration, remembering that time is the most precious of commodities. With all our brilliant technology, we’ve not found a way to manufacture more time.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~ Steve Jobs

Find Time for More Time
Don’t allow time to slip through your fingertips. Today, think about your day and find time for more time!

Puzzled? 20 Elephant Facts that Warm the Soul

Elephants

MaMa and Baby ~ Photograph taken by Janice Taylor

A few days ago, I had the supreme pleasure of visiting Reid Park Zoo (Tucson), home to Baby Nandi, the cutest baby elephant ever! As you click through this week’s Get Jiggy JigSaw Puzzle, “Baby Nandi,” chew on these 20 amazing Elephant facts!  My favorite fact is #16, although I’m fairly smitten with fact #19.

And you?  What’s your favorite elephant fact?

Did you know that:

  1. The Elephant is the only mammal that can not jump.
  2. Elephants are the largest land animals in the world.
  3. The heaviest elephant on record was an adult male African elephant who weighed in at 24,000 pounds!  He was 13 feet tall (to the shoulder)!
  4. The heart of an elephant weighs somewhere between 27 to 46 pounds.
  5. Wild elephants eat 200-400 pounds of food daily and they need about 30 gallons of water per day, as well.
  6. Their brain is 3 or 4 times larger than that of humans, yet proportionally smaller.
  7. Their pulse rate is 27.
  8. They can live to be over 70 years old.
  9. Their skin is an inch thick.
  10. At the age of 16, an elephant can reproduce.  They rarely have more than four children throughout their lifetime.
  11. They have the longest pregnancy of all animals: 22 months from conception to birth.
  12. At birth, an elephant calf weighs in at approximately 230 lbs!
  13. They have four molars. Each one weighs in at 5 pounds and is the size of a brick.
  14. Elephants cry, play, have incredible memories, and laugh.
  15. Elephant feet are covered in a soft padding that help uphold their weight, prevent them from slipping, and dull any sound. Therefore elephants can walk almost silently!
  16. Elephants are highly sensitive and caring animals. If a baby elephant complains, the entire family will rumble and go over to touch and caress it. Elephants express grief, compassion, self-awareness, altruism and play.
  17. Elephants have greeting ceremonies when a friend that has been away for some time returns to the group.
  18. They are social creatures and are known to “hug” by wrapping their trunks together in displays of greeting and affection.
  19. Elephants pay homage to the bones of their dead by gently touching the skulls and tusks with their trunks and feet. When an elephant walks past a place that a loved one has died, he/she will stop dead still; a silent and empty pause that can last several minutes.
  20. And finally, should you want to talk to an Elephant, try purring.  They purr like cats do, as a means of communication.Click through “Baby Nandi.”Send the postcard version of “Baby Nandi, e-card” to a friend!
