It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.
CONTINUING THIS WEEK ON; SELF- WORTH AND ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
It’s Saturday, the week-end.
How many of you are going to dress up?
If so, what are you going to be?
Just remember, never underestimate the power of having a high level of self-esteem and a strong feeling of self-worth.
They are both essential for looking after your mental health.
Life is better when you are confident and live each day being true to yourself.
However, sometimes this is easier said than done.
Remembering how important it is to love and priorities yourself is essential to becoming happier and work towards creating a life that you love.
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive.
And then go and do that.
Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
ITS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
I wrote this seven years ago on Facebook, it came up on memories yesterday.
Oct. 29, 2014
THE ENDING OF THE MONTH
This month was special to me for many family birthdays, my husband and my dad’s.
Both are special men that have influenced my life and gave me a chance to think outside the box.
I too had breast cancer, but this month wasn’t about survival, but education.
I wrote a book about my ordeal with cancer and how I managed it while enjoying life without all the treatment side effects.
People do not get it, healing yourself starts with a lifestyle change.
I used scientific methods in which the results were fabulous and suffered no loss of hair and never felt ill.
The first thing I learned from Dr. Perez was heat and oxygen kills just the bad cancer cells.
The treatments I received allowed the good cells in my body to remain.
The most important of all that I learned was what our environment is doing to us…
The pesticides and GMOs are what is helping us to get cancer.
This is why I go organic.
It’s not just what I eat, but also what I put on my skin.
It only takes 5 seconds to absorb in your skin.
One most important clue is that cancer feeds on sugar and wheat.
So, I now do not eat processed sugar or wheat.
I am gluten free.
Please, do your research and gain knowledge before it is too late.
Remember you can manage cancer ~ Knowledge is power.
In closing I am remembering a Facebook friend Christina for she lost her battle this month with breast cancer and all the others that have been suffering, it does not have to be that way.
My husband and I are Proof in the pudding, both had cancer and both did not have surgery, chemo nor radiation.
It’s all about the type of procedure you use and USA doctors only know one way the conventional way.
Look up Functional Medicine and research other ways.
Individual we are a drop, but together we are an ocean.
If anything, you get from this, I would like you to spread how important knowledge is and to think outside the box.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
If someone asks you to do more and you have a big reaction inside, it may be a sign that you’re already doing too much.
Even strong, independent, hardworking people have limits and deserve to rest.
Doing your best is a wonderful thing, but doing all you possibly can for as long as you possibly can will eventually lead to burning out and feeling unappreciated by the people around you.
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.
WHY ARE THINGS SO TOUGH ON LEFT-HANDERS?
About 10 percent of the population is left-handed.
The rest are right-handed, and there are also about 1 percent who are ambidextrous, which means they have no dominant hand.
Not only are lefties outnumbered about 9 to 1 by righties, there are health risks that appear to be greater for left handers, too.
A 2007 study published in the British Journal of Cancer examined hand preference and cancer risk.
The study suggested that women with a dominant left hand have a higher risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer than women with a dominant right hand.
The risk difference is more pronounced for women who have experienced menopause.
However, researchers noted the study only looked at a very small population of women, and there may have been other variables that affected the results.
The study concluded further investigation is needed.
THE QUOTABLE LEFTY
It is better to stand on the wrong side of the ball, and hit it right; than to stand on the right side and hit it wrong.
- Motto of the National Association of Left-Handed Golfer’s

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.
30 PICTURES - ENJOY THE SLIDE SHOW
"Chinese proverb. One picture is worth ten thousand words."
So, we will be posting a gallery of pictures on each post, hopefully you will see each one has a story.
Today will continue 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.

Limits allow you to be an integral part of a relationship, but not be emotionally consumed or controlled by its dysfunction.
Know your boundaries and set your limits.

10 Minute Meditation for Self-Love
This 10-minute guided meditation for self-love can be enjoyed while mirror-gazing, or while sitting with eyes closed.
Either way, you will be guided to truly tap into the remarkable nature of your being.
You'll feel appreciation and awe towards who you are and build up the reservoir within you to *choose* to view yourself through the lens of love.
This will help you accept yourself as you are, no matter where you are on your path of developing a positive self-image.
“Surrender is a gift that you can give yourself. It’s an act of faith. It’s saying that even though I can see where this river is flowing, I trust it will take me in the right direction.” ~ Debbie Ford
