A life is measured by moments like these.
CONTINUING SERIES ON EMBRACING THE PRESENT MOMENT AND ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO? BONUS, THE SIX SENSES AND YOUR WELL-BEING.
Keeping on the topic of gratitude, since Thanksgiving is right around the corner.
Being grateful for what you have is one of the best things you can do for your inner self and others around you.
By cultivating gratitude, you allow yourself to be happier.
It’s that easy!
When you expect too much of yourself, think of what you’ve accomplished by now.
When life hits you, think of everything that you still have.
Maybe it’s family, a friend, a roof over your head, your health or just the fact that you still have the strength to overcome whatever life throws at you.
101 WAYS TO HAPPINESS; by Mike Annesley.
Since all the research of keeping healthy, leads to making your cells happy; this book will help your mental health to be happy.
That is the first step in keeping your cells happy and keeping your body healthy.
CHAPTER 1; HAPPILY, YOURSELF
If you’re working toward a personal goal, such as keeping up a fitness routine, studying a new skill or trying to be more confident in company; don’t let any of your successes go unmarked.
Congratulate yourself for each landmark passed.
Share the good news with friends.
Treat yourself, but if you’re on a diet, make sure that treat doesn’t break your self-imposed dietary rules!
THE SIX SENSES AND YOUR WELL-BEING
In this very moment you are seamlessly connected to the cosmos.
The same deep intelligence that streams through the rivers flows through your bloodstream, and the same breath that nourishes your cells animates the life of a rain forest.
Although it may seem like you are separate from the world “out there,” in reality your body and the universe are made up of the same molecules, obey the same principles, and are inextricably connected.
More than 5,000 years ago, the Vedic sages of India understood what quantum physicists are just beginning to recognize; we are all part of an infinite field of intelligence that orchestrates all of the activities in the universe.
With every breath, we exchange our personal energy with the energy of the universe, and we are constantly taking in impressions via the five sense organs; the ears, skin, eyes, tongue, and nose.
Just as the food we eat creates our bodily tissues, our sensory impressions determine the quality of our thoughts and emotions.
If we want greater physical and emotional well-being, we can use sounds, feelings, sights, tastes, and smells to balance and heal ourselves.
How many are you out there are left-handers?
I raise my left hand! When I was growing up, I learned everything right-handed; which made everything I did the wrong way.
WHY ARE THINGS SO TOUGH ON LEFT-HANDERS?
DID YOU KNOW!
Lefty astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin both walked on the moon.
With their recognized capacity for original thought, intuition, and self-reliance; left-handers seemed well suited to the rigors of space travel.

THROUGH PICTURES AND VIDEO'S
CONTINUING THE SERIES ON HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
Dan and I grabbed an opportunity nine years ago, when we took on the adventure and moved to Mexico. Back then, we didn’t know what to expect, except that both of us were alive and ready for a change. We had been going to Tijuana for cancer treatments and knew somewhat what we were heading into. We ended up living in the center of the country however; better for travel purposes and it was nothing like what we had thought about. To this date, we are back in the states living in Virginia and what we took from Mexico was friendships, culture and understanding of their ways of life.
WITH PICTURES AND VIDEO'S
Through thousands of pictures that I took, Dan and I are showing how safe Mexico is. There is a saying ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’; this is so true! A picture tells a story just as well as, if not better than, a lot of written words.
"Chinese proverb. One picture is worth ten thousand words."
So, we will be posting a gallery of pictures on each post, hopefully you will see each one has a story.
Today will continue 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 9 – LET THE PAST GO
Today, ACCEPT YOUR REALITY
ü Making the most of what we have turns it into more.
ü Real relationships are far more interesting than dreams.
ü Detachment is allowing others to be who they are, rather than who I believe they should be.
ü Centered on what you do not have, you will never see what you do have.
Tomorrow starting on CHAPTER 10; BUTTONS AND TRIGGERS
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. In the coming week, Dan and I will be blogging the benefits of ELDER. It’s amazing what and how elder can help keep your body healthy?
Yes, elderberries can reduce weight!
The high content of dietary fiber along with the metabolism-accelerating effects of mineral and vitamins make elderberries great for losing weight.
The fiber makes you feel full, its modest calorie count has little effect on your intake, and you usually get plenty of other health benefits too.
NOTE AND REPEAT – PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth
THIS IS AN ENCLOSURE – will be at the end of all the blogs, for I stress; this daily routine will heal and keep your body cells happy.
As I end this blog, Dan and I for several years have shared our experiences with enjoying life while managing cancer. By keeping healthy, our routine daily has been walking (exercise), meditation (for stress), Qigong (exercise and for stress).
I know some will say they do not have enough time with work, kids and household chores!!!
Winter is coming Burr cold outside. 2nd choice, walking in the mall.
Dan and I have put together videos from WALK AT HOME together on our website, that you can follow in home; when you have short periods of time and unable to go out. They are from 15 mins up to 30 mins depending on the miles. This is one of the first steps to making your cells happy!!
Also, meditation videos, help to lower stress and is also one of the first steps to making your cells happy; click on https://www.thejourneytogoodhealth.com/meditation
