Yes it is:) How are you Brooks?
Hai, I would like to reduce my weight, if there is any way to reduce my weight without the excersise. What about the food and all ?
Hi there Saranya. Thanks for sharing your question with us. Yes, you can reduce your weight by eating the right foods for your body and your goals. However, exercise will support a healthy metabolism as well as a healthy mind and spirit. If you want to “feel better” than I highly suggest combining eating only whole foods, taking in a proper amount of water per day, and doing at least 30 minutes of exercise 3 days a week. You can take a walk, a hike, bike ride, take a dance class, whatever makes you feel good. Merry Christmas!
I just read your blog post on Tiny buddha about Transforming Negative Thoughts and Creating the Life you Desire …it was brillant and honestly written !! I can so relate to everything you were saying !!!
In the last year i have had a major shift in my life, transformational . I am always working on looking at what I can do to be more aware of myself, my thoughts, beliefs that get in the way of me having peace and love within me so i can have the quality of life that i deserve and share with others!!!
I am an 53 year old mother of three that was undiagnosed with ADHD until my late thirties and always struggled with low self esteem, feeling broken and not really understanding why i felt so disconnected , my negative self talk would lead me to ruminate ( which is a big ADD trait) and eventually lead me to depression. On the outside i looked happy, always up. had many friends ,always positive easy to be with . no one knew how that inside I was struggling and how hard it was sometimes to just get myself out of that ruminating place and move on. Fortunately for me in the last few years I got myself on the right medication, hired a ADHD coach and started to educate myself about my own ADHD and how it shows up. I now have the awareness to really look at what I am doing but taking those old negative thoughts and pausing to put new nice positive thoughts in place of the old negative ones. In the beginning it was so hard to just pay attention to that self talk and stop and say nice positive things to the new me that i was creating. I can honestly say it has almost become second nature and more of the new positive thoughts are giving me peace and love for self . I do a lot of roll playing and talking to myself which really does help . I actually had an incident the other night that resignated with me and I started to go to that old me with the negative self talk. one of the rituals I have is to start journaling my thoughts. This time as I was rereading what I had written i could actually witness the new me saying something in a angry way.It really was shocking. We dont even realize half the thoughts and what they are putting out there that can get in the way of so many things. This just goes to show you that even though i am feeling really positive about me and the new positive self talk , there is always something new to learn and work on.
Thanks again for your wonderful post and your wisdom.
Hi Sheryl.Wow…it definitely sounds like you’ve been on a pretty amazing journey yourself. I am really thankful for you sharing that with me here. I am always amazed at how our “obstacles,” no matter how challenging they can feel, come baring so many lessons and gifts. Yes, I agree, no matter how much we learn and do, there is always more to discover, and thank goodness for that 🙂 Thank you for visiting me here at Erin Lanahan Method. It’s an honor and a pleasure to connect with you.
I don’t know who you are but I know that I was led to your page when I heard Him say “google: when the going gets tough just keep going” and told me to message you. There are things about your life that no one understands even you and you find different paths t channel your curiosity. He has put major ideas and plans on the inside of you but you need help to see them come to the ultimate possibility. His ability to do through you and in you is immeasurable and if you were to tell the truth about the dreams and plans you have people would laugh and call you crazy…a dreamer even. The power that you know is there….Is there and He wants you to come to Him and speak with Him so He can heal where you’ve been broken, hold you where you need to be held and set you truly free from frustration, anxiety, pain, confusion and give you Hope and a future. Thus says the word of the Lord concerning your life…and He says what you truly desire to see in 2011 you will see if and when you surrender to Him.
Thank you 🙂
I was thinking about our conversation and wanted to share a little more with you. I felt like I was completely taken care of in India and it was so easy to be present, spritual all day, and nutured by the dasas and Sri AmmaBhagavan. Coming home and living in our day to day lives is the biggest challange which is why I didn’t want to leave the womb of India and am ready to go back. Anyone can go to India and be spiritual all day. It’s maintaning the sacred and God realization at home that’s not so easy in dealing with others, our work, LA and ourselves. Being in India, is a piece of cake or I should say chapati :). Love Alisha
Erin, I read your article @ Tiny Buddha http://tinybuddha.com/blog/how-to-be-a-leader-without-trying/ and just wanted to thank you for writing and sharing it. I appreciate your effort and wish you well.
Hi Dick. Thank you. I am happy you enjoyed it and that you found me here on my own blog as a result 🙂 I hope you visit me often. It’s a pleasure to be a regular contributor to Tiny Buddha. I just love Lori, and the interaction that happens with all the readers is so beautiful and wonderful. Anyway, thanks again for dropping in! Wishing you love, light, health, and abundance!
Love your recipes. I’m sitting here scrolling down through them and am so impressed. They seem easy which is important to me since I don’t like to cook but I eat healthy and like finding simple healthy treats. You’ve done it! Thank you.
BTW – I’ve had those kale chips and they are Yum. I make them every week.
Good luck in Australia!!
Hey Harriet! Thanks! I absolutely LOVE sharing fun, easy, yummy, and healthy recipes. It took me a long time to really understand that eating healthiy wasn’t boring or gross ha ha. Happy you are enjoying them!
I feel the need to tell you I stumbled upon your article: The Power of Change today and given the circumstances in my life, felt compelled to read more. I am about to move, recently engaged (not even a week) turning 28 on Saturday and trying incredibly hard daily to win my battle with personal peace and release my anxieties of change.Your words, every word in your article hit dead on with my thoughts, desire, fears and hopes. For the first time in a couple of weeks-I quite literally exhaled. Thank you, thank you, thank you…Erin how can I learn more?
Hey Lauren. I feel you sister! It can be SOOOOOOO scary and unfamiliar and uncomfortable to sit in the feelings that get kicked up in the face of big change. Ugggh, I get it. Breathe, get still and quiet for as long as you can each day, even if its only a few minutes. For me I try to connect to a Bright Golden light deep within me, to help me find light in the darkness, and anchor me in a safe place within myself. What would you like to learn more about? You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to talk more:) I also have a you tube channel http://www.erinlanahanmethod.tv, if you are interested. Meanwhile, try to feel the feelings in your body and just allow them to wash in and out of you, like the waves in the ocean. You will get stronger and adjust to your new life in perfect timing. Everything is happening as it should. Love to you!
