No alarm clock needed. My passion wakes me up!
CONTINUING ON THE NEW SERIES, DON’T LET YOUR ALARM CLOCK, BE THE ONLY REASON YOU WAKE UP AND ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. PLUS, THE HERBS – ASTRAGALUS.
The week-end is approaching, and its summer.
What more, than relaxing on the beach or at the pool side.
In Dan’s and my case, Dan is working an event all week-end.
But I'm going to be making some MY TIME by relaxing on the porch drinking coffee, doing some oil painting, re-planting some of my herbs and playing with Heckle.
DON’T LET YOUR ALARM CLOCK, BE THE ONLY REASON YOU WAKE UP.
Living your fullest, live in the present moment.
Your past is important to learn from.
Your future is important to work towards.
At the end of the day, though, the only thing that exists outside of your head is the present.
In order to ground yourself in the now, you can practice mindfulness, which involves learning to live in the moment by noticing what’s around you, how you’re feeling, why you’re feeling that way.
Meditation can also help with this as it helps you get in touch with your thoughts and feelings.
Gratitude is another amazing tool for living in the present.

It’s JULY – 8th, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about July that’s so significant during this month?
National Blueberry Day – July 8, 2022
National Blueberry Day is today.
We are celebrating this day to spread information about the health benefits of blueberries.
The holiday is dedicated to our favorite, tasty, nutrient-packed, fiber-rich, and antioxidant-rich fruit.
Blueberries are also loaded with numerous benefits for the health and wellness of our bodies.
This tasty fruit is something that we all need on a hot, dry day to keep us feeling refreshed.
The delicious, juicy inside of the berry explodes inside our mouths with a tasty flavor that we will always love.
So let us enjoy this day by learning more about this fruit and its health benefits.
Blueberries are perennial flowering plants native to North America.
The berry’s color ranges between blue and purple.
The blueberries we see today are relatively new.
They were first grown in the 1900s.
The wild variety was not possible to feasibly grow and harvest on farms, and people had to pick them up from the wild to enjoy their delicious taste.
We have been consuming them in the wild for more than 13,000 years.
Native Americans understood the versatility and medicinal benefits of fruit and used them as ingredients in medicines and as flavoring agents in food.
This gives me a good idea to do a series on blueberries!
Dan and I might later down the road blog about BLUEBERRIES.
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.
DON’T WAIT FOR A CRISIS TO REALIZE WHAT MATTERS MOST. PUT YOURSELF FIRST RIGHT NOW.
BECAUSE RIGHT NOW IS ALL WE HAVE.
Continuing from last year 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.

CHAPTER 17; WHEN YOU WANT TO HELP
IF YOU WANT SOMETHING TO BE DIFFERENT, YOU MUST DO SOMETHING DIFFERENTLY-
Today, TOUGH ON THE HEART-
Healthy help comes from the heart, not as a maneuver to gain, but as a gift.
It’s tough to stand by and watch when you know the negative consequences of a decision, but sometimes there is no other option.
Criticism turns off hearing.
Threats fall deaf ears.
Love and encouragement offer the strongest hope.
A simple comment that can help someone see the truth may be the best help of all.
We cling to the belief that if we hold someone up long enough, they will get strong.
But strength develops as one stands on their own.
Too much support causes codependency, spinning off each other, unable to separate without one, or both, crushing.
They weaken to the point they can no longer stand on their own.
Continuing on the herb; ASTRAGALUS and the benefits, It’s the last herb from the book ALCHEMY OF HERBS by Rosalee De La Foret.
Astragalus has such a mildly sweet flavor.
Did you know this herb contains antioxidative and anti-aging capabilities?
I was surprised, but it does!
Oxidation due to free radical damage is the main component in disease and aging, and many elements found in astragalus fight free radical damage and prevent of oxidative stress.
The herb’s polysaccharides have positive effects on the immune system and improvement of the function of the brain, both of which could lengthen life span.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
NO ALARM CLOCK NEEDED ⏰
Until Saturday, do not be alarmed by simplification,
complexity is often a device for claiming sophistication,
or for evading simple truths.
