Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
A NEW SERIES OF LOVE AND CONTINUING ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE FROM LAST WEEK. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
It’s the weekend, Dan and I wish you all a wonderful and safe weekend.
Our health realizes on the love from each other. Knowing that we are loved is the first step of keeping healthy and having a positive attitude.
Love is most likely influenced by both biological drives and cultural influences. While hormones and biology are important, the way we express and experience love is also influenced by our personal conceptions of love.
Researchers have made distinctions between feelings of "liking" and "loving" another person. According to some researcher’s romantic love is made up of three elements; attachment -needing to be with another person and desiring physical contact and approval, Caring -valuing the other person's happiness and needs as much as your own, intimacy- sharing private thoughts, feelings, and desires with the other person.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
When you touch someone’s heart, they will never be quite the same again. Part of your life will live in them always.
Others will treat you exactly as you treat yourself. Once you love yourself, you will not be able to tolerate poor treatment.
You will see that, although they may call it love, it’s actually something else.

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.
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.

Tomorrow I'll continue on CHAPTER TWO - WHEN THE PRESSURE IS ON.
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!
Peppermint is incorporate into beauty and skin-care routines. Peppermint is calming and cooling, so when used as a topical cream, it can treat skin conditions including poison ivy, rashes, and hives.
It might also be worth it to add to your regular beauty regimen. Peppermint scrubs can add moisture, soften dry skin, and act as a cleanser because of its antibacterial and antiseptic properties.
Peppermint also heals various skin issues. Peppermint is mostly used in topical creams which are used to address a variety of skin issues. Its soothing properties make it an effective treatment for rashes, poison oak and poison ivy. It gives a strong healing effect to the skin.
Peppermint fights suntan and sunburn. Peppermint is a rich source of Vitamin A and C and contains folates and omega 3 fatty acids which help in fighting sun related problems like sun tan and sun burn.
To use, you can apply the paste of peppermint leaves on your face or use peppermint oil topically to treat sun tan.
But if you are using peppermint oil directly on the face, dilute it with some oil to avoid skin inflammation.
Peppermint contains a nutrient called Perillyl alcohol which prevents the formation of skin cancer cells.
Tomorrow I’ll post more peppermint benefits.
