Have enough courage to start and enough heart to finish.
THIS WEEK DAN AND I WILL BE BLOGGING ON THE SERIES OF LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, THE HERB – CACAO. ALSO 101 WAYS TO HAPPINESS.
The weekend is here!
Living a great story, how is yours going?
I can tell you that Dan and I, this week added to our great story.
A happy and fulfilling life is a life that is shared with people that you enjoy being around the most.
Cherish those relationships and treat your friends as you would like to be treated.
Keep in mind as you create your great story be self-sufficient!
Depending on other people for your own tranquility will only cause anxiety and frustration.
Embrace your freedom and self-sufficiency.
At the end of the day, the only person who can tell you what you really want or need is yourself.
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 5; HAPPILY, BUSY
ENTER THE ZONE
It’s a principle of positive psychology to value activities that engage your whole attention in the moment.
This is the flow state or zone.
You can enter it via any endeavors demanding concentration, from playing chess to pruning roses.
Fully absorbed, you lose the sense of time passing.
People who often enter the state tend to concentrate better and have higher self-worth.
Throw yourself into whatever interests you; the reward is complete mental refreshment.
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.

Today continuing on CHAPTER 13; HOW CAN I EVER FORGIVE?
Forgiving may feel like it lets someone off the hook.
And that’s too easy.
FORGIVING IS A CHOICE THAT TURNS SURVIVAL INTO VICTORIOUS LIVING.
A precondition never births forgiveness because it places the burden on someone else.
If the person around whom we have hung the prerequisite does not meet the demand, we feel justified in our continued hurt or anger.
If the prerequisites are met, we feel duty bound to abide by our promise to forgive.
We say to ourselves - conditions are met for forgiveness so, I must get rid of the hurt or angry feelings.
The mind stuffs the emotions behind a closed door and tries to ignore them, even when they bang on the door to get out.
Tomorrow, NOT FORGETTING
Dan and I have been posting, on the time to get ready for food and remedies that
heal; alchemy of herbs.
Today blogging on the herb; CACAO and the benefits.
It’s amazing what and how cacao can help keep your body healthy?
Did you know that cacao is a mood-enhancing aphrodisiac?
The Aztecs may have been the first on record to draw a link between the cocoa bean and sexual desire: the emperor Montezuma was said to consume the bean in copious amounts to fuel his romantic trysts.
Nowadays, scientists have analyzed the aphrodisiac properties of chocolate, and attributed it to two main molecules it contains.
One, tryptophan, is a building block of serotonin, a brain chemical involved in sexual arousal and mood.
The other, phenylethylamine (PEA), a stimulant related to amphetamine, that is released in the brain when people fall in love.
Combine these two with theobromine that acts to dilate and open blood vessels and for some the body may experience an increase in desire as a result.
It is no wonder we gift chocolate to our loved ones on Valentine’s Day, the perfect superfood to get you in the mood.
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.
BELIEF IS NOT A MATTER OF CHOICE, BUT CONVICTION
