Many a calm river begins as a turbulent waterfall, yet none hurtles and foams all the way to the sea


Hello followers,

Happy Tuesday and hello, holiday season!

The fourth benefit of self-care when stress about a major life change takes over your life.

You feel emotionally grounded.

Being kind to yourself, in whatever form that takes; helps you feel more compassionate to you and to those around you.

Once you recognize the benefits of self-care, you will want to treat yourself to those activities more often.

This practice will improve your self-esteem and confidence.

As you step out wearing those beautiful garments, you demonstrate your compassion for yourself.

This sets an example for others who will want to mirror your image.

Have you ever heard or said to someone else, how do you stay so strong during adversity?

Being centered in who you are, taking amazing care of yourself, and being able to show up with grace and dignity are true signs that you are reaping the benefits of self-care.

Tomorrow, the fifth benefit of self-care when stress about a major life change takes over your life.

NOVEMBER 8th, Dan, and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about November that is so significant during this month?

Talk Money Day – November 8, 2022

I picked this holiday, for it seems like it's always on Dan’s mind.

Talk Money Day is observed on November 8 every year.

This day is designed to teach people to stop being afraid of talking about money.

This is how the day is distinguished from Talk Money Week, which is also held in November to raise awareness.

It turns out that talking about money can be difficult, especially when it comes to financial worries.

People are afraid, ashamed, and hesitant.

And often they can’t admit it to themselves.

However, conversations are important and can help them make better and less risky financial decisions, get help when faced with financial difficulties, and, most importantly, feel less anxious.

The invention of money occurred before the beginning of writing history.

Thus, any story about the development of money is largely based on assumptions and logical conclusions.

Significant evidence confirms that ancient markets traded many things that could be described as a means of exchange.

These included livestock and grain, that is, directly useful things.

Even more so, beautiful items such as cowrie shells or beads were exchanged for more useful goods.

However, such exchanges would be better described as barter, and the usual exchange of a commodity does not technically make that commodity “money” or “commodity money”.

The ancient origins of economic systems precede written history.

Also, since ancient civilizations kept evolving at different rates and did not keep accurate records, or were unfortunate that their records were destroyed, it is impossible to trace the true origin of money.

In addition, the historical evidence confirms the idea that money has acquired two forms and is divided into broad categories of settlement money, debit and credit in books, and money and material exchange; made of clay, leather, paper, etc.

It is very important to break down the barrier of talking about money.

After all, talking openly about money is vital to our health, well-being, and relationships.

Research shows that people who talk about money can make better and less risky financial decisions, have stronger personal relationships, help their children develop good money habits for life, and have better control over their financial situation.

Promoting conversations about money in our daily lives helps us build financial confidence and resilience to withstand any event, it prepares us for the future.

Because, if we are not ready for this, it will be difficult for us to cope when there is a strain on income or an event that will change one’s financial status.

Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.

Today is


Today Dan and I will be continuing the book, Ten-Minute Relaxation, For Mind and Body by Jennie Harding.

Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are always with you; your senses.

This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.

Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!

Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy, meditation.

By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.




The best tool for fragrance space is a vaporizer, which diffuses the aroma of essential oils into the air over a period.

There are many electrical models available, which are very safe to use and can be left on for several hours.

Ceramic or metal burners, where the oil is warmed from beneath by a small candle; should not be left unattended.

Ceramic or metal rings that sit on a light bulb are also available, add your oils carefully and remember to leave the ring to cool down completely before removing it from the bulb.

Continue tomorrow-

As I ponder over all that I have learned, I have come to find that we all have our own blueprint.

Our bodies are precious and there are many components in taking care of them.

Throughout the blog, Dan and I have related the separate ways through body, heart, and soul.

It is all about power of knowledge and learning to take care of yourself, keeping your cells happy.

Our immune system is one of the key factors in keeping healthy.

It is important to know how it works!

Cancer: Civilization's - No. 2 Killer

Continuing today on Important--Note Well,

Professor Aviles of the Biochemistry of Cancer Department, Guadalajara, Mexico reported that out of 7715 cancer patients examined by him over a fifteen-year period, at least ninety-nine per cent had suffered from constipation and that the degree of malignancy was parallel to the degree of constipation.

Doctors Dennis Burkitt and Hugh Trowell, who both spent twenty-five years working in rural Africa, agreed that in those areas where the diet of the natives consisted almost entirely of fruit and vegetables, the transit time of the natives was about twenty-four hours, there was no such thing as constipation and cancer was non-existent.

Dr E. H. Tipper in his book The Cradle of the World and Cancer (1927) said: Cancer has been suspected of being a disease of civilization.

Judging from my experience in general practice in London, twenty years in West Africa, and again in rural England, I am convinced that this is true.

It is due to the conventionalism and bad feeding of civilization and is an exact index of the degree to which the alimentary tract has deviated from its natural and normal state of health.

In the case of cancer, constipation and excessive meat-eating should be the two suspects, when they are present cancer is rife, where absent there is none.

Until Wednesday, even too much sunshine can be devastating, while only with rain can growth occur. Accept both as part of the growing process in the garden of life.
