Every addition to true knowledge is an addition to human power.
RECAPPING A NEW SERIES ON; THOUGHTS. POWER AND CONTINUING LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE FOR THE WEEK OF AUG 29th TO SEPT 5th. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
Well, how has your week-end been so far?
Dan and I was experiencing yesterday real power and confidence. For six years we did without a car, along with it the expenses of one.
As you know, if you’ve been following our blog; last September we purchased a car during the corona uncertainty.
It is great having one, however; not the upkeep, repairs!
The good news is that the car did not die, when we were in Charlottesville Friday.
The bad news is while we were ready to go to the store to purchase some last-minute items for when our daughter comes next week; the car wouldn’t start.
Understanding what that meant, Dan had confidence that it was the battery.
So, we called our service man to come out and check it and sure enough it was the battery.
Well, you know how the story goes!
Yes, it could have been more serious, but the power being Dan and I was blessed.
Real power is confidence, and it rises as we better understand and live our values.
What do you stand for?
When you speak about your values and act accordingly, you increase your power because you are confident in your assertions.
The power is palpable and effective.
Real power is what happens when people connect what they do, to who they are.
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.
It’s time to share some words from THE LEFT-HANDER’S HANDBOOK.
WHY ARE THINGS SO TOUGH ON LEFT-HANDERS?
Jimi Hendrix was neither rich nor important, but he became both by beating right-handers at their own game.
Jimi Hendrix - Somewhere Over The Rainbow
He restrung his guitar so he could play it left-handed.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
When you really try to do right, to be positive and honest; but not many others seem to do the same or even care that you do.
You may wonder, what’s the point!
But that is the point.
In your way, with your means; in your time here, you’re making things better.
No amount is too small, but chances are the effect you have on people is much greater than you realize.

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.
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.

BONUS, TWO MINI VIDEO'S

So, we will be posting a gallery of pictures on each post, hopefully you will see each one has a story.

You and I are not what we eat; we are what we think.
If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.
The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.
Knowledge is power only when put to use and then only when the use made of it is constructive.
To acquire knowledge, one must study; but to acquire wisdom, one must observe.
Knowledge is power, and for each level of knowledge; you are held responsible for how you use it.
This is where we continue on the book: 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.

Today I will continue on – CHAPTER SIX; HEAL THE HIDDEN WOUND.
It may be unclear exactly where the line is between caring that corrects and caring that mutilates the spirit, between controlling for safety and healthy development and psychological abuse.
Yet for the sake of those you care about, for your sake; for the sake of someone who abuses, if there are signs that the behavior is skewing, help is needed immediately.
The three markers of abusive behavior are belittlement, manipulation and control.
Caring, or love, crosses the line to abuse when it consistently exhibits any of the following characteristics;
Ø Excessive overprotection
Ø Given with strings
Ø Withdrawing or withholding love or appreciation
Ø Physical or emotional violence
Ø Acceptance based on performance
Next week continuing on THE THREE MARKERS OF ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR; BELITTLEMENT. MANIPULATION AND CONTROL.
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 THYME. It’s amazing what and how thyme can help keep your body healthy?
Thyme treatments indigestion, thyme tea is known to promote good digestion, and reduce gas and bloating.
