Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.
RECAPPING THE NEW SERIES OF LOVE. ALSO, ON SERIES OF TRUST, APPRECIATION, PLUS - LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE AND HOW SAFE IS MEXICO FOR THE WEEK OF JULY 17th TO JULY 24th.
Rise and Shine! The weekend is coming to an end. As Dan and I start this new series of love, I have been reminiscing and wondering where the last ten years have gone.
When I found out that I had cancer, which seems like ages ago; I realized how important the support and love that Dan and my daughter was to me. I don’t know if I would have made it with out their love.
So, this is why I’m very passionate on the series that we post. The balance of support and controlling your lifestyle creates a healthy body. With karma, intuition, forgiveness, trust, appreciation, and love we can overcome the negative within ourselves.
To be brave is to love someone unconditionally, without expecting anything in return. The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing. By Dr. Seuss
Not all forms of love are the same, and psychologists have identified a number of different types of love that people may experience.
The first type is friendship; this type of love involves liking someone and sharing a certain degree of intimacy.
The second type is infatuation; this is a form of love that often involves intense feelings of attraction without a sense of commitment. It often takes place early in a relationship and may deepen into a more lasting love.
The third type is passionate love; this type of love is marked by intense feelings of longing and attraction. It often involves an idealization of the other person and a need to maintain constant physical closeness.
The fourth type is compassionate/companionate love; this form of love is marked by trust, affection, intimacy, and commitment.
And the last type is unrequited love; this form of love happens when one person loves another who does not return those feelings.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
Do unto others as you’d have done to you, also means do unto yourself as you would do to others.
If someone is treating you poorly, just don’t allow it. You would not do that to someone else.
If they continue, remove yourself from that relationship. They may not even be capable of treating others well, but that’s something you can’t fix.

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."
So, we will be posting a gallery of pictures on each post, hopefully you will see each one has a story. I welcome you to recap last week’s picture

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily.
Next to excellence is the appreciation of it.
A heart in love with beauty never grows old.
Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
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’m continuing on CHAPTER TWO - WHEN THE PRESSURE IS ON.
What is your choice?
After ascertain the options, considering the cost, knowing your limits, owning your choice.
We can change when the pressure is on and we find ourselves sucked in, or something will die.
Either the relationship, our zest, or our self!
What is your choice?
When the pressure is on, you are not necessarily lost; you just don’t know which way to go.
You can’t do it alone, but when you are alone; humor helps.
No one controls you, unless you allow the control.
Tomorrow starts CHAPTER THREE – WHO IS SCREWED UP?
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. Continuing on the health benefits on PEPPERMINT. You might be surprised!
Have you ever heard of peppermint curbing one’s cravings?
The Chicago Tribune reports on a study that asked people to smell peppermint oil every two hours. Participants reported not feeling as hungry as people who didn’t take a whiff of peppermint, and they ate 2,800 fewer calories throughout the week.
Not only does it keep cravings at bay, but it also helps you feel full faster. Having peppermint tea after meals, especially with a piece of dark chocolate will help savor the chocolate longer, and it’s a great palate cleanser to help signal “doneness” post meals (decreases after dinner munchies).
Tomorrow I’ll post more peppermint benefits.

LIFE WITHOUT LOVE ❤️
Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.
Until Monday, the flowers have already appeared in the land. The time has arrived for pruning the vines, and the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land. The fig tree has ripened its figs, and the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance. Arise, my beautiful one; and come along and follow Dan and I with the series of love.
