The Whole Enchilada (or taco recipe) and Dealing with Toxic Relationships.

Yes, relationships. It all boils to relationships (not the taco, thou.) 😉

Hello again!

I will be sharing the taco recipe today along with this post… Ingredients first.

 

Step One.

Ingredients

2 cups hydrated hibiscus flower

2 red tomatoes, diced

¼ white onion finely chopped

1 jalapeno or serrano chili pepper, finely diced

¼ cup coriander (cilantro)

½ teaspoon olive oil

1 jicama in very thin slices (these are your tortillas)

Salsa, and lime juice

 

As for the toxic relationship: a person exhibiting toxic behaviors and another person buying in them. PERIOD.

You might have noticed that on my other posts I stress three things: a behavior, someone buying in and an unhealthy dance or toxic relationship they have.

Again, it takes two to tango. Maybe because of my background as a humanistic counsellor, in Gestalt and on Robbinss-Madanes training I tend to focus on empowerment and the possibility of healing. I typically do not tag others and do not diagnose in my coaching or in my practice. That’s for Psychiatrists, and DSM V criteria. But I.Don’t.Do.That.

 

Step Two.

Break the pattern. Yes, you heard me well, break the pattern. And I will set forth three roads for you to choose from, because I believe what Tony says, a choice implies at least three options.

One. Leave the scene or the relationship. On the leave part you can do it either physically or emotionally. Be bolder and do both? I know some of these relationships might be family, so the emotional part (even the physical one) might be difficult and seem impossible.

Two. Learn to laugh at yourself and take things with humor. Chances are the offender might be caught off track and either stop in the turmoil come back with a vengeance. Still take it with humor, as you’ve been warned.

Three. Observe from love. Yes, you heard well, from love, specifically SELF-LOVE. Instead of understanding and making puzzles around THEIR behavior. Take a step back, pause and love yourself more. That’s the first step to be unhooked from it all.

Ah, the taco recipe:

How to make the tacos:

  1. Put the hibiscus to boil in water for 5 to 8 minutes at medium to high heat. (You can use the concentrated tea that comes from its boiling and keep it to prepare hibiscus water, a Mexican delicacy).
  2. Dice the hibiscus in fine chops.
  3. Rinse in tap water. If the hibiscus is still a bit stiff, set it to boil for another 5 to 8 minutes.
  4. In a hot pan, warm a bit of oil and cook for the tomato, the onion and the chili peppers for 5 minutes, if you don’t want for it to be a hot dish you can remove the seeds from the peppers or not add them at all.
  5. Add the diced hibiscus flower, the coriander and a pinch of salt and pepper.

 

 

Step Three

 

Take steps forward to get out of the toxic relationships and you will see your life improve.

You will notice an increase of happiness, energy and positivity in your life. Sooo… #StepUp

It’s your time to #RISE to #RAWR and #Live2Soar.

See? Now you can enjoy better relations hips, AND healthier tacos!!!

Oh, oh, serve the hibiscus in the jicama and enjoy your tacos. You can add salsa, the lime juice or go bold and add guacamole!

Have an awesome weekend!

“I believe in harmony, the way some people believe in fairy tales… All you have to do is LISTEN.”

The title of this article is based upon this quote:

“I believe in music, the way some people believe in fairy tales… All you have to do is LISTEN.” – August Rush.

I have a wide number of favorite movies, but perhaps among the most influential  in my life was this, August Rush. Long story short, I am VERY sensitive to music and harmony.

So, let’s play with that quote for a bit and change music for harmony or balance. For your life, for your relationships, in your body and even for your business.. Allow for me to elaborate a bit.

“A system operates to serve or heal its weakest link.” So  to prevent that, organize and prioritize so you cater to your largest drivers and/or most necessary relationships first. Yes, even relationships within your body.

So going a little deeper and focusing solely on one’s self. Do you hear chatter all day long about things that are beyond your control to fix? Well, silence those and focus on what you CAN fix! Listen to your body after you eat something – do you feel bloated? Lacking energy? So, perhaps that specific food (or amount) does not suit you. How do you feel after you exercise? More energized or totally depleted?

Can you see where I am headed? One of the keys to leading a balanced life and achieving all of your dreams or the dreams in the key areas of your life, is Listening to your own body.

Leading a harmonious life from within will naturally reflect on healthier and more nurturing relationships with yourself by being able to transcend negative patterns, thoughts and emotions; and consequently with others.

Leading a more harmonious life while listening to your body will translate in feeling more energized, becoming more efficient and having more time to do what counts!

Leading a more harmonious life while listening to Spirit, God, or your inner self will naturally have you at peace, more focused, more able to deal with problems and stressful situations more wisely…

However, that kind of listening goes above and beyond active listening (which involves all your senses). I will call this kind of listening, observant listening which allows for you to recognize patterns, “side effects” (like for example when you get bloated or not), and find leverage on those things or activities that will nurture you to grow.

Get Trim from Within! Stack up Habits! #OneByOne

It’s time Hack Emotional Stress!
Hello again!

I truly believe in trimming down though and through. Lighter everything. instantly stands for increased flow.

Sooo… today I’ll be speaking of the power of getting Trim from Within! What does getting trim from within mean? It means literally travelling lighter in all aspects of your life, starting today!
Get rid of clutter. That’s just an example. To really get to the core and the nit and grit of your losing any and all excessive weight – or at least starting to trim down (your body, your  work load or your schedule – is dealing with your emotions and toxic habits, behaviors and self-talk; as those are a straight line to comfort foods, doing things for love, approval or acceptance, and addictions (yes, including work).

I am pro-action and against victimhood so, I won’t be speaking about food, addictions or even getting into toxic relationships. Instead,  I will be talking about the three core emotions that keep you falling off the wagon and into damaging toxicity.

1. Anxiety – also known (and more popularly known as) stress… A meeting with your boss, a heavily loaded work-day, traffic, DEBT (financial or emotional), politics you name it. Endorphins needed!!!

2. Sadness/Pain/Grief – any loss. Literally any loss. We don’t seem to grow much through time, do we? Do you recall when you cried over a doll or a toy car? Bad news is, in a way, you still do! We all do. Say you lose your I-phone 10, or your favorite technology gadget; or cannot buy it. You’ll get comfort food instead, right? Again, think of the break-up ice-cream scene of any movie.

3. GUILT – ah! This is a heavy one, perhaps the heaviest in the list. There are so many things we feel guilty for, so very many! The most popular among super-busy over-achievers?a) I didn’t go to the gym AGAIN! Ugh, I cannot make time for even that; b) I didn’t get to my family reunion for working, I got too late to see my kid/s off to bed (again!) Ugh!; c) I failed at … (fill it with whichever thing you want on this list). The problem with guilt is that guilt is the mother of all addictions and mindless activities. As guilt is a combination of anxiety and sadness with the extra point of self-blame and typically, self-demanding (possibly through unrealistic goals or lack of boundaries).

By the way, Grief and Guilt add up to the Anxiety and Stress combo… So, if you want to trim from within…
Start tackling those emotions by cleansing the people and activities that trigger them; you could change the meaning of the interaction or just stop seeing that person or avoiding the activity.
Get into emotional liberation practices like EFT.
Make your goals more REALISTIC and ELIMINATE or MINIMIZE your self-demand. Yes, goals should be ambitious, but not overwhelmingly so.

And of course, to succeed START TODAY! Take ONE action, ideally one you can build a habit of and stack up on it.

“The Purpose and Contribuiton Conundrum”

Some years ago, I didn’t even want to talk about having a purpose let alone transcending in any way. As time went by, I discovered that there are no greater drivers at any age than growth, purpose and contribution. When I faced depression for having lost my main income, most of my work and got a divorce (both huge breakthroughs from toxicity, but still a loss) and then my 5 day old cat died in front of me of feline panleukopemia – even if she was already a rag when I got her to the vet. I had to regroup and rebuild myself brick to brick in the awareness to evolve from said toxicity and build a stronger, happier,more fulfilling life.

Shortly after, I met a man that changed my life – he said the magic words… Discover a life by serving another, that will give purpose and meaning to yours.

Ah! then my focus started on looking for ways in which I could change the world doing exactly what I loved. My search got me to several different answers – teaching people how to eat better building and focusing on a purpose greater than I am got me up every day. I was already a learning and kind of a wellness/ fitness junkie at that point.

Soon, I discovered that three things were key to one’s life – Growth, Purpose and Contribution.

Having a purpose means giving meaning to your life, having a reason to get up.

Making said purpose about contribution gives it the pull of making it about something greater than yourself.

As in anything in life, I’d recommend you start small.

You can start with a gesture, a good tip. Really seeing and acknowledging those who cater to you in any way a waiter, the valet, bus driver, etc..

Give away a smile, giving away your time and experience to help others.

Start a charity, volunteer or give away your time and talent to help others.

Live a life with purpose and get up with a smile on your face!

Quick tip? It’s also key to living stress-free and driven to achieve more balance.
