Thought Tool: What it takes to be Great!

Saturday, May 25, 2013

"Good morning my genius friends.
I'm stuck on Michelangelo here (I'm reading about him obviously), but there is so much to learn from him... perhaps you know that the head and hands of the statue of David are larger proportionally than they should be. Do you know why?
Because Michelangelo knew that "David" would be some 20 ft off the ground. The farther away an object is, the smaller it appears. He made the head larger so it could be seen in proper proportion to the rest of the body as people looked up from the foot of the statue.
There is a lesson here.
SOMETIMES there are SEASONS when parts of your life must be bigger than the others in order to bring proportion and balance to your life. People often think we should keep everything "equal"..... but not if you want to excel, not if you want to be a GENIUS in your chosen area.
If you want to be a great writer (like I do), you must spend more time reading and writing than you do hanging out with friends. It's not easy to make those choices. But it's your CHOICES, not your intellect that determines your genius. Many people desire greatness, few realize the sacrifices you have to make to achieve it.
But it's worth it.
It's soooooo worth it.
And I believe in you."

Cycles & perspective

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I made a poster once about me. I took a lot of old mags. and cut out everything I was attracted to that said something about me or what I liked, Glued them together in a collage. Some of it even told my future plans. It was amazing to see what I thought about my past, now, & future. I made it to be a 4hr. project so I wouldn't over think it.

When I have blown it in the past with sugar I eat meat for 3 days only then I am back in control. Skinny feels better than sweets taste is firmly planted in my mind. Find a substitute for those cravings and stick to it. I know that if I give into sweets again the same cycle will repeat. It is like being an alcoholic can never have just one drink so don't look at it as being deprived, missing out, or being normal.

    Yes I eat fruit & will have candied ginger not high in calories & sweet with a little bite.

Life is choices so I don't understand people who think I should have a little candy, cake, or pie because others are indulging.

There is a good cheese cake that is made from cashews that taste great without the cals. & triggering the body into the addiction mode. emoticon

    I was wondering what you substitute for the sweet cravings? Do you have a set plan, or deal with it when it happens?

For me, I planned to substitute a piece of fruit, and carried fruit with me everywhere I went. Works pretty well. The desire for those other things usually goes away after eating the fruit, and I don't binge on the fruit.

    I'm so sorry! emoticon

I've lost a few furry children myself and it is SOO hard. People who never have had a furry one don't always understand but it really is like loosing family.

I made a little collage of pics to help remind me of all the happy times and that helped.

emoticon Kitty Hugs to you!
