STARTING THE NEW YEAR OFF ON THE SERIES OF LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, THE HERB - LEMON BALM AND ROSE, 101 WAYS TO HAPPINESS.
The first week of January is coming to an end and the week-end will begin.
Dan and I plan to enjoy life, worry less, be happier this coming year.
What about you?
Despite being vague and directionless, resolutions like “enjoy life” and “worry less” maintain top-of-the-charts.
Fortunately, they’re not impractical.
They just need a bit of direction.
I will schedule time to worry.
You heard me.
You want to worry less?
Put it in your schedule.
Worry is an emotion just like any other and commanding yourself to feel less of it is going to be less productive than funneling it into a healthy outlet.
Every year in the past Dan and I would say; I’m going to take two real vacations this year.
However, this next sentence was so true for me!
Especially in the United States, there is a lot of pressure to avoid taking vacations or to take very few.
If your goal is to enjoy life, don’t cave in.
I wish I had chosen a job that allowed me to take more then two weeks off a year.
Science will back this up.
Studies show that when people spend your money on experiences rather than more crap, they report a higher rate of satisfaction.
Have you ever asked yourself; I will learn this new skill.
Gaining new abilities is not only great for personal satisfaction, it can improve other aspects of your life.
It boosts your brain power and improves memory, especially for the elderly.
Resolutions aren’t just for January!
Time is free, but it’s priceless.
You can’t own it, but you can use it.
You can’t keep it, but you can spend it.
Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back.
Time is taken for granted, but after it is gone; all we have left
are the memories.
So, I put together 365 inspirational sayings; this way we can
stop for a second and pause.
This was inspired by giving as Christmas gifts to our loved ones.
Each day Dan and I will also shake and pull out of our box and share with you all.
I LIVE IN THE MOMENT. DRINK FROM THE FRESH SPRING OF THE PRESENT, YOU SHALL GET TO ENJOY THE TRUE TASTE OF HAPPINESS. IF YOU DO NOT EXPECT ANYTHING FROM THE FUTURE, THEN WHATEVER WINDS MAY BLOW, THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO SWAY YOU OFF YOUR PATH - WILL THEY.
101 WAYS TO HAPPINESS; by Mike Annesley.
Continuing from last year!
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 2; HAPPILY, PEACEFUL
Stripping things down to essentials means fewer trivialities to fill your head.
Rid yourself of commitments that aren’t serving you and are unrelated to your values; rid yourself too of excess stuff in the home, which radiates negative energies.
A big clear-out will leave you feeling purified, at a deep level; especially if you give away some of your possessions.
If you’ve treasured some things for sentimental reasons, consider donating these too; instead of clinging to the past.
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.

Last year, Dan and I have been posting, this is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs.
As I continue on herbs this year, for two days ago we started on the herb; ROSE and the benefits.
It’s amazing what and how rose can help keep your body healthy?
Our culture commonly focuses on the physical aspects of illness.
We use objective physical measures to diagnose and treat disease.
While relegating a person’s spiritual and emotional well-being to another branch of medicine, a church, or a spiritual teacher.
Roses can remind us that this separation is only a recently created reality.
Their scent, their physical beauty, and their medicine fluidly address our physical and emotional health, making it a wonderful medicine for our whole heart.
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.
COURAGE TO BE WHO WE ARE
Growth and transformation occur not by changing who we are, but as we summon the courage to be who we are. #growthandtransformation#occur#changing#whoweare#summon#couragetobe#whoweare #inspirational#motivational
Thinking back on this date, memories of when Dan and I were living in AJIJIC.
January 6th is Three Kings Day in Mexico, known as the Día de Reyes.
This is Epiphany on the church calendar, the 12th day after Christmas, when the Magi arrived bearing gifts for baby Jesus.
In Mexico children receive gifts on this day, brought by the three kings, los Reyes Magos, Melchor, Gaspar, and Baltazar.
Some children receive gifts from both Santa Claus and the Kings, but Santa is seen as an imported custom, and the traditional day for Mexican children to receive gifts is January 6.
