SPECIAL EDITION, NEW BEGINNINGS
THIS WEEK CONTINUING ON THE SERIES OF LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, THE HERB - ROSE AND 101 WAYS TO HAPPINESS.
It’s my birthday day today!
And Dan and I regards birthdays as a new beginning.
A birthday is the first day of another lovely year, A year of new tomorrows that is shining, bright and clear.
So, now it’s time for me to face the beginning of a brand-new additional year to my life.
I can’t believe it?
When you are going through a transition, your mind expands in way that it hadn't done in the past.
You find out about what you can handle and what you can't.
You learn about your limitations.
You figure out what you are really made of.
Learning about yourself, including what you cannot handle, helps you to figure out a better path to take in life.
You are open to the possibility of learning that what you have been doing in the past isn't suiting the future.
101 WAYS TO HAPPINESS; by Mike Annesley.

CHAPTER 3; HAPPILY WORKING
OPTIMIZE YOUR COMMUTE
Commuting can be stressful, especially in the rush hour.
Choose a time, means and route that take the pain out of your journey.
This might mean spending a little more time; for example, going by bus and not by train for the sake of getting a seat.
Even getting there early.
Consider having breakfast after your commute rather than before.
This is an aspect of work you can control, choose wisely.
If you go by car, try to organize a car share, not least for the sake of the environment.
Continuing from last year the series on LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, by Elizabeth B. Brown.
Dan and I continue to share ways to benefit and help keep one’s health cells healthy.
A wise man told me ten years ago, when one is in balance with themselves; one stays healthy.

CHAPTER 12; FIGHT FAIR WITH UNFAIR PEOPLE
LOVE IS WHAT HOLDS HEARTS TOGETHER WHEN MINDS DISAGREE!
MIND GAMES; TACTICS
Arguments are not logical, SUP’s change their argument in midstream; do a complete turnabout, if necessary to keep the upper hand.
They disregard and disparage.
They deny they said or did what you know they said and did.
Their comments make it clear that they believe you are not able to understand the issues as they can.
Last year, Dan and I have been posting, this is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs.
Continuing on the herb; ROSE and the benefits.
It’s amazing what and how rose can help keep your body healthy?
Ready for another recipe using ROSE!
Well, what about – ROSE HIP-CRANBERRY COMPOTE.
Compotes are stewed fruit with spices and are a simple and delicious way to create a fruit-based dessert.
This particular recipe is often signifying the coming of winter and the holiday season.
Cranberries are a wonderful source of antioxidants and deserve to be eaten in more than one meal a year.
The apple may be peeled or not, it’s up to you.
3 cups chopped apples, about 3 medium apples
2 cups fresh cranberries
1/3 cup dried rose hips, with seeds removed
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1 cup of apple juice
½ cup pomegranate juice
2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ cup honey or sugar, or to taste
Freshly whipped cream – optional
1. Place the fruits, rose hips, lemon juice, lemon zest, apple juice, pomegranate juice, and ginger into a pan.
2. Bring to a boil.
3. Reduce the heat so the mixture is at a low simmer.
4. Continue to simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
5. After 20 minutes the fruit should be soft and the mixture will look jelled and cooked down.
6. Add the spices and the honey.
7. Taste and add more honey if desired.
8. Stir for another 2 minutes, then remove from heat.
9. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired.
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.
FAMILY IS NOT ONLY ABOUT DNA IT'S ABOUT SOMEONE WHO LOVES YOU UNCONDITIONALLY.
