A challenge only becomes an obstacle when you bow to it.
THIS WEEK WE WILL BE BLOGGING ON THE SERIES OF LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, THE HERB – ARTICHOKE. ALSO 101 WAYS TO HAPPINESS.
It’s almost the week-end again!
As I woke up this morning, I was thinking about every challenge that Dan and I have overcame took us small steps to create our goals.
Just a reminder, it will help you achieve that big, fearless goal you have dreamt of, one small challenge at a time.
However, one word of caution; don’t wait for things to be perfect or for your wake up-call to kick you out of your comfort chair.
Dan and I chose to change, to challenge ourselves, to grow.
It was after several such “slaps”, but better late than never.

Self-sufficiency is no recipe for a happy life much of our comfort and stimulation comes from others.
At the heart of their social network most adults would identify an intimate partnership a kinship group and a more fluid collection of friends.
Beyond that are neighbors, workmates and more casual acquaintances.
People who use, say, the same gym or bus stop.
Even the most peripheral contacts can be rewarding, can offer insight, warmth, humor, compassion, moral support, practical help.
Three things are needed form us to derive most benefit from our fellow human being’s openness, empathy and communication.
With the golden triad we can enrich our lives, overcoming relationship issues and exploring positive experiences we can share.

Continue today on; STEP- 1: FIGURE OUT THE CONTROL TECHNIQUES
One of the cleverest manipulative techniques.
Recognize the control techniques your difficult person uses;
1. It may sound like
I’m too tired
Need you to do this
Don’t have enough money
Talent or ability
2. It may be compulsive behaviors.
3. It may be irritating behaviors.
Such as your partner refusing to be on time until you are screaming, I’m leaving.
4. The person may use withdrawal of whatever you hold dear or need.
5. The behavior may include;
6. It often includes verbal assault and freely using negative comparisons and guilt.
Some difficult people are brash and loud; others are subtle and quiet.
7. It probably includes cutting jokes and put-downs,
8. Interruptions that short-circuit the expression of opinion and ideas are to be expected.
Tomorrow, STEP 2; PRACTICE BEING OBJECTIVE-
Last year, Dan and I have been posting, this is the time to get ready for food and remedies that
heal; alchemy of herbs.
Starting today on the herb; ARTICHOKE and the benefits.
It’s amazing what and how artichoke can help keep your body healthy?
According to USDA artichokes might be low in saturated fat and cholesterol while being a rich source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
They contain vitamins including vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin B-6, B-12, A, E, D, and vitamin K.
They also provide minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, sodium, potassium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc.
As Dan and I begin a new year, this is our PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.
