I’m not saying that everything is survivable. Just that everything except the last thing is.
TODAY DAN AND I ARE STARTING A NEW SERIES, WE ARE DESIGNED TO SURVIVE AND ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. PLUS, THE BOOK TEN-MINUTE RELAXATION FOR MIND AND BODY.
Happy Hump Day!'
Life has many lessons to be learned from.
NEVER let anyone belittle or treat you with disrespect.
You are responsible for your own life and always have the choice and the power to change things.
You are stronger and more resourceful than you know.
The pain you're living through is only temporary and leading you towards new and better things.
Old energy and purpose will be replaced with new positive feelings and experiences.
With the lessons we learn, take charge of your life.
Be in control as much as you can be.
Even if you're slogging through hell keep going because you'll come out of it.
And get yourself unstuck from paralyzing fear and pain.
It means working hard to change so you can feel good and be healthy and positive, even under excruciating circumstances.
You'll find and create some kind of relief to get to a better place.
Believe in yourself.
You absolutely can do it.
We were designed to survive!
AUGUST – 3rd, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about August that’s so significant during this month?
National Watermelon Day – August 3, 2022
Did you know that watermelon is 92% water?
No wonder it’s so refreshing!
People have been digging into this tasty, juicy fruit for millennia and it all started in Ancient Egypt.
It’s said that watermelon cultivation began in the Nile Valley as early as the second millennium B.C.
Watermelon seeds were even found in King Tut’s tomb!
On August 3, we celebrate this ancient berry in a feast of juicy deliciousness; otherwise known as National Watermelon Day.
The juicy, refreshing watermelon deserves its own day, that’s why we celebrate National Watermelon Day.
Cultivation of this fruit dates back to 2000 B.C., with the first watermelon harvest on record occurring approximately 5,000 years ago in Egypt.
Traces of watermelon and its seeds have been discovered on sites of the 12th Egyptian Dynasty, including in the tomb of King Tutankhamen.
Paintings of different types of watermelon have also been found in ancient Egyptian inscriptions.
The sweet fruit we enjoy today is the result of mutations over the course of a thousand years of cultivation.
Watermelon seeds were sold to traders passing through the trade routes in the Kalahari Desert in Africa.
From there, the cultivation of the watermelon spread across Africa.
The origin of the progenitor of the watermelon was in Africa, after which it spread into Mediterranean countries and other parts of Europe.
By the end of the ninth century, watermelon cultivation became common in China and the rest of Asia.
According to The Dictionary of American Food and Drink, by John Mariani; the word watermelon first appeared in the English dictionary in 1615.
The watermelon is commonly known as a type of melon, but it is not in the genus Cucumis.
The outer rind of a watermelon is dark green with yellow stripes or spots.
Over 300 varieties of watermelon are available in the U.S., ranging from red to white, and come in different shapes and sizes.
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.
THERE’S ONLY ONE THING THAT CUTS THROUGH ALL OUR REALITIES AND THAT’S LOVE, THE BRIDGE BETWEEN ALL OUR DIFFERENCES.
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 18; SEE THE POSSIBILITIES-
FAITH TAKES RISKS-
Prayer balances out the power struggle in difficult relationships because when you have a relationship with God, you are no longer so vulnerable or reactive.
Prayer helps you talk out the WHYS.
It helps you grow an acorn of concern into an oak tree of strength that holds you and those you care about up through the storms.
Prayer is a spiritual tool that shuts your mouth and opens your heart.
Today Dan and I will be continuing on the book; ten-minute relaxation, For mind and body by Jennie Harding.
Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are with you at all times; your senses.
This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.
Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!
Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy; meditation.
By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.
CHAPTER 1; WHAT IS STRESS?
STRESS AND IMMUNITY-
One of the most immediate signs of overstimulation and low levels of coping is a cold or flu.
Both which are caused by a poor functioning immune system.
As the winter approaches and the days get shorter, your system may be reacting to levels of daylight and colder temperatures.
But sustained levels of stress also affect the smooth function of your immune system, your body’s own defense mechanism.
It’s back to those cavemen again, whose physical bodies we still inhabit.
When we react to an external stressor.
We go into the fight or flight response as have seen, primed to deal with danger.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
Until Thursday, no one likes to see people in moods of despair they themselves have survived.
