The Universes Delays Are Not The Universes Denials
ten steps on setting goals while developing patience

Have you ever wanted something so badly and it seemed that it was unobtainable or slow in coming to fruition? I think we all have. Sometimes during this process of longing it seems that it will never come true and eventually we slip into acceptance that it isn't going to happen and we don't deserve it. Welcome to impatience [FIRST_NAME]. Impatience can illicit feelings of always being dissatisfied, upset, and angry at yourself for your slow pace of growth and change. In a state of impatience it is easily lose your control and fire off outbursts of anger, temper, and blame on those who are slow to change and grow. Not dealing with impatience can result in becoming a member of the ``throw away'' generation, discarding relationships, people, jobs, and school whenever things are not working out as quickly as you want them to.

Today we are going to talk about ways you can start developing a greater level of patience. First and foremost remember, "The Universes delays are not The Universes denials".

What is patience?
Patience is the ability to let go of your need for immediate gratification while sitting back and waiting for an expected outcome without experiencing anxiety, tension, or frustration. Applying patience in interpersonal relations ships is to display tolerance, compassion, understanding, and acceptance toward those who are slower than you in developing maturity, emotional freedom, and coping abilities.

Developing Patience

Develop a consistent philosophy of life. Take life one day at a time. Consider each day a gift of life that will allow you to get one step closer to your goal of growth and change.

Accept the reality of your humanity in that you are going to need time, effort, and energy to change and grow. You will experience some resistance to altering long standing, habitual ways of acting, reacting, and believing.

Reframe your perspective on the past, present, and future. Do not dwell on your past mistakes and failings. Do not worry about what you will become or how you will act in the future. Begin to live each new day as a fresh start.

Break larger goals down into components that are short term goals and objectives, more realistically attainable in the immediate future.

Plan your work and work your plan. Be systematic in planning your path to personal growth.

Accept, understand, and forgive yourself for being fragile, imperfect, and weak. You need to become your own best friend and cheerleader. Love yourself.

Wake up to the realities of life around you. Everyone with whom you come in contact is busy working through their own struggles, weaknesses, setbacks, relapses, crises, and obstacles to their personal growth. All of us are on the path to personal growth. There is no one exempt from this journey. It takes a lifetime to complete.

Confront your fears about attaining your goal. Remember, the world was not created in a day. Beautiful symphonies, works of art, and literary masterpieces were not created in a day. A lifetime is not lived in a day.

Practice meditation and contemplation. Meditation can come to the rescue when impatience takes control. Meditation induces relaxation which has been found to be a counter-balancing mechanism to a state of stress and impatience. Stress induced by impatience is created by the stimulation of the hypothalamus of the brain. Relaxation can be achieved by countering this stimulation - by stimulating other areas of the brain. This is achieved by doing meditation, which leads to state of deep rest, relaxation resulting in a great sense of patience.

Good stuff, right [FIRST_NAME]?

Here's to your rich beautiful life

All Great Achievements Take Time
Max Steingart

Every big accomplishment is a series of little accomplishments. To achieve maximum success you must accept that progress is made one step at a time.

A building is built one brick at a time. Football games are won one play at a time.
A business grows bigger one customer at a time. You walk over the highest mountain one step at a time.

Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out. Nothing great is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or an apple miraculously appears.

If you want to grow an apple, you must give it time. There must be time for it to blossom, bear fruit and then ripen.

That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.

Boosting Your Energy Level
four quick and easy tips on getting off your butt

Walking, cycling, stair climbing - any activity that makes your heart pump hard qualifies as cardiovascular or aerobic exercise. It's one of the cornerstones of a good fitness program and it's the best way to burn calories, strengthen bones, and build up healthy heart and lungs. Below, some ways to build your aerobic workout.

Frequency: Stick-to-it-ness pays big rewards
For overall good health, aim for at least three half-hour aerobic workouts each week. For excellent health, it's best if you can aim for up to five workouts per week. For weight loss, up the ante a bit more. Try for four to six slightly longer sessions per week. Don't overdo it: even elite athletes should train no more than six days each week, giving their bodies a day to fully recover.

Intensity: Work out hard for best results.
You'll want to exercise with enough intensity to keep your heart pumping at 60 to 80 percent of its maximum rate. This range is called your 'heart rate training zone.' Our target heart rate calculator can figure your maximum heart rate and apply the appropriate percentages. To see if you're in your training zone, take your pulse. Count it for 10 seconds and multiply by six to get the number of beats per minute. For another approach, try to carry on a conversation with the instructor or a training partner while exercising. If you cannot speak without breathing hard, you're working too intensely. Ease up a bit so that you can comfortably carry on a conversation. You're in the training range.

Time: All it takes is 30 minutes a day.
Beginners can start with 20 minutes or three 10-minute segments interspersed throughout the day. Eventually you'll build up to a continuous half-hour exercise session.

Type: Ride, run or walk, whichever you like best.
Cardiovascular activity is any exercise that raises your heart rate for a prolonged period. There are plenty of exercises to choose from, both in the gym and outdoors. Pick one or several and get to it!

Do not forget to drink a lot of water before, during and after your work out. Drinking 64 ounces of water everyday will help boost your energy. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder . Now, start splashing.

Half-Full Consciousness
starting from empty
by Madisyn Taylor

Live your life as if your glass is half-full rather than half-empty, all you need is a change of thought.

We are all familiar with the metaphorical story of two people looking at the same glass and one perceiving it as half-full while the other sees it as half-empty. As much as we’ve heard this, it’s still a valuable exercise to really observe our minds and notice whether we are engaged in half-full or half-empty thinking. People will refer to themselves as being of one type or the other as if it was a permanent characteristic, but we are all capable of shifting into a half-full consciousness if we simply make the effort.

When we look at our lives with half-empty consciousness, we perceive a lack and think that the other half of what we want is missing. We are coming from a position of expectation and entitlement. On the other hand, when we look at our lives as half-full we perceive fullness. It is as if we recognize that our cup could be fully empty and so we are grateful for what we see as bounty—not something we expect or believe we are owed, but a gift. In half-full consciousness, we count our blessings. When we look at our lives we see all the elements that are in place and all the things we do have. This doesn’t necessarily mean we don’t seek more, but we seek from a place of fullness instead of from a place of lack. This fullness draws positive energy into our lives and often attracts more abundance.

If you would like to begin to make the shift into half-full consciousness, try imagining your life as an empty glass. This is your life without all the people you know, the work you do, your home, or your current state of physical wellbeing. This is just an empty, open space waiting to be filled. Once you have that feeling of openness in your mind, begin filling it with all the people, things, and places that make up your life. You may be surprised to find your glass overflowing


No Added Sugar Peach Melba Pie
Total Servings 12 slices
Serving Size 1 slice
Carbs Per Serving: 28.9 g
Prep Time:<60 minutes

Skill Level: Moderate

The timing on this recipe couldn't be better. Peaches are at the peak of their season and you guessed it, so are raspberries. This recipe isn't not a beginner level recipe but, if you apply yourself you will be able to make it and the reward for diligence is an amazing decedent dessert that will impress all who eat it.

For the press-in crust:
1 1/2 cups whole grain flour, plus more as needed
1/2 teaspoon Fructevia, Steviva Blend or tiny dash Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
8 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter (1 stick), cut into small pieces, plus more for coating the pan
4 to 5 tablespoons ice water

For the filling:
2 pounds ripe peaches, pitted and cut into sixths (about 6 cups)
1/2 cup Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a dash Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder
2 tablespoons molasses
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and scraped, seeds reserved (or 1 tablespoon vanilla extract)
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 pints raspberries (about 12 ounces)
1/2 tablespoon xanthan gum

For the streusel topping:
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup all-purpose whole grain flour
3 tablespoons Fructevia, Steviva Blend or tiny dash Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder
1 tablespoons molasses
1/8 teaspoon fine salt
4 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter (1/2 stick), cut into small pieces

For the press-in crust:
Coat a 9-1/2-inch deep-dish pie plate with butter and set aside.

Combine the measured flour, sweetener, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade attachment and pulse 5 times to evenly incorporate. Add the butter and pulse until just incorporated (some large pieces will remain). Drizzle in 4 tablespoons of the ice water and pulse until moistened throughout, about 5 pulses. (Add the last tablespoon of ice water if necessary, but do not overwork the dough or it will become tough.)

Turn into the prepared pie plate. Press with floured fingers or the back of a measuring cup dipped in flour until the dough evenly covers the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Place in the refrigerator to chill, at least 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the oven to 400°F, arrange a rack in the lower third, and place a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil on the rack. When the oven is hot, pierce the base of the crust with a fork several times, line it with a piece of parchment paper, and fill it with pie weights or dried beans.

Place the crust on the hot baking sheet and bake until dry to the touch but not browned, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, set aside the pie weights and parchment paper, and let the crust cool slightly on a wire rack. Return the baking sheet to the oven.

For the filling:
Combine the peaches, sweetener, molasses, vanilla seeds or extract, and lemon juice in a large bowl and gently mix. Add the raspberries and Xanthan Gum (cornstarch or Guar Gum) and toss to coat. Transfer the filling to the crust and place the pie on the hot baking sheet. Bake until the peaches are just beginning to brown, about 30 minutes.

For the streusel/topping:
Meanwhile, combine all of the streusel ingredients except the butter in a medium bowl and mix until evenly incorporated. Add the butter and combine with your fingers, rubbing the butter into the flour mixture until mostly incorporated but some small pieces remain. Place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

When the pie is ready, remove it from the oven and reduce the temperature to 375°F. Sprinkle the streusel over top and return the pie to the oven. Bake until the filling is bubbly, the streusel is browned, and the peaches are fork-tender, about 40 to 45 minutes more. Let cool on a wire rack at least 45 minutes before slicing.
