"Should" vs. "Could"

If you have spent the $5 to download Louise Hay's, "You Can Heal Your Life" Audiobook, you may have been struck by her "Should" vs. "Could" teaching. It's waaaay too early in the morning, so I'm not going to re-state her teaching accurately, but it goes like this:
She believes that the word "Should" needs to be removed from the language. Whenever you say "Should" you are in effect saying "wrong"... "you're wrong." Making yourself wrong is not empowering. It keeps you stuck, trapped, in a vicious circle. When you make yourself wrong, you attract more and more instances of you being wrong. You never get out. You stay stuck and repeat your patterns over and over, because you are bad... you are wrong. (Does this sound like your Weight Loss Journey?) She believes the word "Could" needs to replace "Should." "Could" gives you Choice. "Could" gives you Power. Instead of saying "I should... do this or that," say: "If I really wanted to, I could... do this or that." So anyway, she has her clients make a "Should List": a list of all the things you "Should be doing" or "Should have done." She then has them read each one aloud, but instead of saying "Should" they must begin each item with "If I really wanted to, I could..." This puts a whole new energy on it. And after each of these statements they read aloud, she gently asks them, "Why haven't you?" The answer is ALWAYS the same... it may take a while to get to it... but the answer is always the same: "Because I don't deserve it"... "Because I'm not worthy"... "Because I'm not good enough"... that is always what lies at the core of every problem, people. I am typing this at 5:00am because I just went through a slew of "Half-the-year-is-over-and-I-SHOULD-have-lost-weight" emails (yes, I'm 2 months behind in emails! LOL) Anyway, people, your language HAS POWER. Words HAVE POWER. Sound is literally a wave of POWER. "Should" cripples you. It removes your power. Replace it with "Could"... if I really wanted to exercise today, I could... if I really wanted to get this weight off, I could... if I really wanted to become a 10, I could. So everyone: Make your "Should List"... Replace it with "Could"... Then gently ask yourself, "Why haven't you?"

Don't Even Have The Strength To Complain!

I will post a rant on the hours of life siphoned... devoured... strangled from my existence... trying to get that !%&^#@$ video to output in high resolution. Anyway, it's not going to happen. I may need to go ahead and get Adobe Premiere. I definitely want you guys to be able to see results with the products and I simply can't do that with crappy resolution. This will force me to shoot shorter videos.. which I'm sure is what y'all want anyway. But between the different lighting, outfit colors, text, length, transitions, music, voice-over, etc., there was just no way to get this to output in high resolution... not with my Wal-mart software! UUUUUGGGGHHHH... I don't even have the strength to rant! Anyway, updating my site now and here's my latest video and notes below:

This video is a month old. Sorry guys. Been slowly editing it for a damn month. It has been completed for a week, but due to all of the different clips, skintone, graphics, length, etc., I can't get the thing to output in high res like my Mind Series. Anyway, the last time you saw the tightness of my skin and "My Situation" was this video: (Loose Skin & Stretch Marks - Impatient Dieter's Secret! 10 in 2010 Liquid Diet Weight Loss) shot on piece of $%, poor-excuse for a camera. This video was shot on a high quality camera, from 100 different angles, in high res... and after all that... EPIC FAIL and I was lookin good too! Anyway, introductory videos for my "Body & Skin" Series will be uploaded this week. Working on the following web pages now:

"My Bad Situation" (eczema) is all healed now. I cannot stress what an amazing accomplishment that is. My outbreaks last for months on end and are EXTREMELY resistant to treatment. My chest outbreaks were so resistant my dermatologist performed a biopsy to ensure I only had eczema and not a more serious condition (I show you the keloid from that biopsy in the introductory video). I have NOT visited my dermatologist for this outbreak on my back... to be completely honest, I would have seen him if my insane schedule would have allowed it. REPEAT: I did NOT intentionally avoid the dermatologist to "test out my alternative treatment"; however, my healing is 100% the result of Visualization, LOA Subliminal Messages, DMSO, & MSM Lotion; I haven't had ANY medical intervention. I discuss this in my Scar Series. Now diminishing that huge scar is foremost on my Goal List!

Monthly showcase of prepping skin with DMSO & applying the following products to treat my stretch marks: MSM Lotion, Shea Butter, Trilastin, & elastiCUR Intensive Stretch Mark Therapy.

Monthly showcase of using anti-aging supplements, as well as prepping my skin with DMSO applying facial creams.

Monthly showcase of Type Z Toning! Wearing on the treadmill and while I sleep. I'll explain why they work so well and record my progress.

With my new MSM regimen, my skin is tighter every day... and I'm giddy with excitement at having real-life haters! WOOOOO! (You Youtube haters blow in comparison!)

Obviously, most sexy costumes are two-piece. The reason the ones I filmed are one-piece was because I wasn't certain if I was going to share my eczema with you guys. I'm stepping way out of my comfort zone. Even though I filmed my eczema, I had second thoughts about it. But as time went by and my Twitterers kept requesting a body shot, I decided I would bare all... probably why I've been subconsciously dragging my feet on editing. And the reason I look raggedier & raggedier with each outfit is because I had to take frequent breaks while filming. Why? Well, I get those lovely hives whenever I have an eczema flare-up. If you've never had hives, fly home tonight and kiss your mother. They are the absolute worst affliction and the sure sign you must have been a Nazi or something in a former life. My welts come sporadically all day and go away within about 20 min, but I definitely didn't want red welts all over my boobs & booty preserved for all eternity! And a final note: I wasn't intentionally sticking my chest out! I didn't realize I was doing that! LOL I look like a 12-yr-old who just got her boobs! And Harry Potter will be worn to celebrate the release of Deathly Hallows. It's my fav, but might get converted to a 2-piece because it is SHORT AS HELL! Links to all outfits will be on my site.

We walk through the filth of the world: Sidewalks, Subways, Truck Stops, Prisons... hey maybe you have a relative to visit, I don’t know... if you don’t remove your shoes, you are tracking all that back into your home. Just as Oprah is raising our consciousness about the need to make your car a No-Phone Zone, I would like for you to make your home a No-Shoe Zone! Tomorrow, look down while you are walking, and note all the muck you walk through... so you're going to track all that back in your house and wallow around in it... NOOOOOOO! So the moment you walk through your door, please remove your gross, disgusting, vile, revolting, germ-laden, parasite-ridden, filthy f-ing shoes! Thank you! More to come about that. You Americans need to cut that sh*t out. It's unsanitary and repulsive!
