It is love that makes the impossible possible.
CONTINUING ON THE SERIES OF LOVE AND LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE FROM LAST WEEK. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
Doesn’t it seem like it was just like yesterday that it was Thursday!
It seems like since I got a little bit older, that the time is ticking faster.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, an experiment was done and maybe this will explain!
Place one clock at the top of a mountain. Place another on the beach. Eventually, you'll see that each clock tells a different time.
Time moves slower as you get closer to Earth, because, as Einstein posted in his theory of general relativity, the gravity of a large mass, like Earth, warps the space and time around it.
Perhaps this is why, time is taking hold of me and Dan; for we have lived near the beach for most of our lives. Then we moved to Mexico near mountains and now in Virginia in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Scientists first observed this "time dilation" effect on the cosmic scale, such as when a star passes near a black hole. Then, in 2010, researchers observed the same effect on a much smaller scale, using two extremely precise atomic clocks, one placed 33 centimeters higher than the other. Again, time moved slower for the clock closer to Earth.
The differences were tiny, but the implications were massive: absolute time does not exist.
For each clock in the world, and for each of us, time passes slightly differently. But even if time is passing at ever-fluctuating speeds throughout the universe, time is still passing in some kind of objective sense, right?
As we continue the series of LOVE. When it comes to people, conditional love deals with our love for a certain person when this person acts according to set desires and expectations that we have for them. These desires and expectations encompass our ideology.
That is, how we want and believe the object of our affection should behave, dress, think, and talk like.
For example, you may believe you love a certain politician or celebrity to the ends of the earth but when you find that this is a controller you unfollow them and cut all random ties with them quicker than one can say “life.” This is because this celebrity fell short of your expectations of them. Expectations here mean your conditions.
The genesis of conditional love is control. You fall in love with someone or something because you are deluded that you are control of its or their actions. So, when that thing or person can no longer be controlled nor can yield the results that you desire, you no longer love it.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
Love between two people is a free flow of giving and receiving.
Love given but not received leads to resentment, depletion, lowered self-worth, and feeling used.
Love received but not given leads to feelings of guilt for not giving or not being able to give, and after that it leads to unappreciation because it came so easily and stayed for no reason.
Either way, love that exits in only one form or the other, but not both; cause deep pain.
True love than knows enough to realize when it must love enough to let go.
True love isn’t blind.
It sees imperfections but doesn’t let them obstruct the view.

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.
"Chinese proverb. One picture is worth ten thousand words."

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 Dan and I will be continuing to post CHAPTER THREE – WHO IS SCREWED UP?
STOPPING THE MARCH
Today I’ll be posting – interdependency is healthy; dependency is not.
Knowing whether your chaotic relationship is caused by your unrealistic expectations or by a really toxic person is critical to appreciating what is possible within the relationship.
The following exercise will help.
Remember if you check off five or more, you are in a difficult relationship and must be extremely careful not to be sucked into dysfunction.
The person who is driving me crazy-
1. Refuses to hear my side of an issue.
2. Turns molehill into mountains and minutiae into significance.
3. Demands the controls.
4. Is self-centered and self-absorbed.
5. Is opinionated or is self-debasing and self-deprecating with no opinions.
6. Often exhibits self-destructive behavior.
7. Will not listen to reason.
8. Repeats the same negative, fearful, or controlling behavior.
9. Can’t be depended on.
10. Feels superior or inferior.
11. Justifies their criticism by superior knowledge, experience, genes, relationship.
12. Does not see the connection between their behavior and the chaos it engenders.
13. Encourages conflict.
14. Causes chaos.
15. Blames others.
16. Uses shame and guilt as weapons.
17. Never apologizes for anything or apologizes profusely for everything.
18. Refuses to make responsibility for their choices.
19. Controls through manipulation, guilt, money, power.
20. Believes the end justify the means.
Tomorrow I’ll be blogging – relationships that lack an iron-will determination to hang together
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 ROSEMARY. It’s amazing what and how rosemary can help keep your body healthy?
Rosemary contains important constituents which give it the ability to buffer the effects of free radicals on the brain.
Rosemary may also offer protection from premature brain ageing, prevent brain damage as a result of it and can improve recovery in patients who suffer from neuro-cognitive disorders.
Other important components in Rosemary may even protect the brain from tissue inflammation and damage and reduce clotting of blood in the brain, reducing likelihood of stroke.
Stay tune, more benefits to come.
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).
Yesterday Dan and I did some walking and then off to our favorite hangout place Mills Mountain Coffee ☕ and 🍵. To our surprise we had the place all to ourselves.

It is love that makes the impossible possible.
Until Friday, the greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
