Knowledge is power only when put to use and then only when the use made of it is constructive.
CONTINUING THE SERIES ON; POWER AND LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
The first week of September is coming to an end.
Soon it will be the week-end.
Are you ready for it!
Only one more day and then off to never, neverland for me and Dan.
Dan and I are very humble that we live among the Blue Ridge Mountains, where there is so much nature.
I have been taking pictures of all the beauty that surrounds us as we walk daily.
As I post every blog, I have been sharing with all of you.
This is through my cell phone, amazed sometimes how good they have turned out.
My object for this is creating an environment that encourages every individual to engage in their own form of self-discipline.
We all have the power!
Real power is clarity, and it gets stronger with discipline.
Having power is more about creating an environment that encourages every individual to engage in their own form of self-discipline.
That’s not to say discipline never comes from above, but by empowering each member of an organization to be accountable, discipline from above will not be required as frequently.
Discipline brings clarity to any situation, increasing an individual’s power.
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.
It’s time to share some words from THE LEFT-HANDER’S HANDBOOK.
WHY ARE THINGS SO TOUGH ON LEFT-HANDERS?
Things were fine for left-handers up through the Stone Age.
But with the Bronze Age came manufacturing.
And since most people were right-handed, that’s the way they made the tools.
To this day, no one has ever made a left-handed sickle.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
If someone spends time going out of their way to harm others, it’s really sad.
It means they have no clue how precious and brief their life really is.
Don’t waste any of your life being angry with them.
To do so would be to give them power over your happiness.
They will regretfully prove to be their own worst enemy.

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.
19 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.
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 I will continue on – CHAPTER SIX; HEAL THE HIDDEN WOUND.
DISINTEGRATION IN RELATIONSHIPS
Recognizing how our past affects our present is crucial, especially in light of the natural tendency of everything in the universe to move from order to disorder.
The principle that governs this drift is called the law of disintegration.
Engineers and scientists sometimes call it the law of entropy.
The universe is expanding outward.
The sun and all the stars are slowly burning themselves out.
All man-made materials that fill the landfills are becoming compost.
Your car is deteriorating from the day you drive it home from the showroom.
Your body is slowly aging and dying.
James Dobson notes that, not so surprisingly; human relationships also conform to this principle.
They drift away from each other unless there is an intentional effort to pull together.
Disintegration is the natural order; cohesion is a choice.
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 THYME. It’s amazing what and how thyme can help keep your body healthy?
Thyme Benefits the Skin, apart from its various health benefits, this amazing herb plays an important role in skincare as well.
Thyme essential oil distilled from the flowering tops of the plant is particularly beneficial in this regard.
Treatment of Acne, thyme possesses amazing anti-bacterial properties.
It is effective in fighting the bacteria that causes skin acne.
Thyme is often incorporated as an ingredient in acne creams and face washes.
Maintains Skin Health, thyme helps in maintaining skin health by eliminating the bacteria that is responsible for causing various skin problems.
Thyme essential oil can be diluted with water and used as a toner to tighten mature skin.
It is gentle on your skin and can be used for all skin types.
Tomorrow – continuing on benefits of THYME.
NOTE AND REPEAT – PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth

“Surrender is a gift that you can give yourself. It’s an act of faith. It’s saying that even though I can’t see where this river is flowing, I trust it will take me in the right direction.” ~ Debbie Ford

Until Friday, people often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn’t have it in the beginning.
