Are you mourning the loss of a partner, the relationship you wanted to believe you had, or your pride. We can’t really mourn a loss until we know what we’re mourning. And when we lose an obstacle between us and authentic love, we can rejoice, rather than mourn. ? ❤️ jd… More
TIP SEVEN: When you want more dinner–or another snack or another dessert–don’t say, “No.” Say, “Yes, if you still want it after you leisurely drink this glass of water.”
PRACTICE: Water is a gift you can give your body. Think of it as cleansing your temple–sometimes of cravings. And after a tall glass of refreshing water with the added benefit of the juice from half a lemon, you may find that you no longer want more food. You have to wear the excess food; but the water moves right through you.
You CAN do this! You can LOVE yourself to a healthy weight!

When we really want a relationship–or anything else–we have to risk falling down. Most of us have attached some stigma to the fall, especially when somebody is watching. But we can’t learn to walk, or dance, or fly without “falling down.” We can’t learn to get up without falling down. And we need to know how to get up! Because no matter how hard we try to avoid it, we will take a fall. We can learn to do it well, with grace and honesty.
When we let go of the notion that we should be able to pull off the happily-ever-after without some rough landings, we’re free to walk, leap, run, and fly. We’re free to be who we are! Somebody else can tune into us! And that IS the fairytale … two people who truly know each other, who aren’t denying the pitfalls, but rather learning to navigate through them! Two people who face each other and life with open eyes, whether they just landed in the dirt or they’re soaring through blue skies.
If you want happily-ever-after skies, learn to hit the dirt and brush it off, without letting it define you. Learn to get up! Way up!… More

If I don’t find reward in the process of doing what I’m doing, regardless of where the relationship is going, I better do something else–or do it with somebody else! … More
TIP SIX: When you exercise, do it in a feel good spot! You’ll be more apt to do it!
PRACTICE: It’s important that you exercise consistently. And part of that is choosing a spot that feels good to you! If you love to be outside, choose an activity you can easily do outside, maybe in your favorite park. If you prefer to be inside, choose a space you love to be in–whether it’s looking out a window or at a piece of art that speaks to you. Play music, light candles, have a bath ready … whatever feels nurturing! Indulge yourself.
You CAN do this! You can LOVE yourself to a healthy weight!… More
