Do not be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.


Hello followers,

A new week, with new beginnings!

Happy Monday!

Dan and I had a busy weekend here in Arizona.

Burr, getting cold and I experienced my first sandstorm.

Tomorrow, the Grand Canyon.

Until then, let us explore, becoming more resilient.

Just as flexing the muscles in your body makes you stronger, using your resilience muscle can help when life changes and becomes harder.

The more experience you have with change, the more resilient you become and the faster you come through it.

You do not have to like it.

However, since we know it is one of those inevitable occurrences in life; it is best not to resist it.

Face it with resilience and learn from the experience.

Flex your muscle and start the bounce-back.

You can move beyond coping and surviving through change.

You can choose to thrive.

Building resilience is one of the most important character traits to have when change knocks at your door.

Until tomorrow, you become inspired.

Since this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, every post this week; I will share something that I have written or done in the past that has to do with this very topic.


Life in this universe is like being a pumpkin.

God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off you.

He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff; including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed.

Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see.

OCTOBER 24th, Dan, and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about October that is so significant during this month?

National Food Day – October 24, 2022

National Food Day falls on October 24 each year.

This day, celebrated for the first time in 1975, was created by the Center for Science and Public Interest (CSPI) and was supposed to be like Earth Day.

The day toasts nutritious and healthy food, and focuses on educating people on healthy eating, good farming methods, and safe food production.

It also reminds us of the strides we have made in living more healthy lives and growing food in viable, responsible ways.

In 1971, a microbiologist, a meteorologist, a chemist, and two scientists from Ralph Nader’s Center for the Study of Responsive Law founded the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI).

CSPI was formed as a non-profit organization that monitored food safety standards and advocated for safer foods.

In the early days, CSPI focused on environmental protection and renewable sources of energy.

Later, when two of the founders left the organization, it turned its focus to food and alcohol safety.

Over the years, CSPI changed the dynamics of nutrition and food safety worldwide.

It encouraged healthy foods in restaurants and made sure that the restaurants followed guidelines issued by the Food and Drug Administration.

CSPI played a significant role in bringing up the matter of excessive amounts of saturated fats found in popcorn in cinemas. It was also the organization that led the campaigns against trans fats found in fast foods.

One of the most well-known campaigns led by the CSPI was National Food Day.

This day was created to raise awareness about nutrition and food safety, and as a step towards eradicating hunger.

Ensuring that antibiotics used on farm animals are regulated was also one of the goals of creating this day.

Clearer food labeling was also an emphasis.

In Canada, Food Day is more of a culinary celebration that originated from the celebration of “The World’s Longest BBQ.

The main intention of creating National Food Day was however to encourage people to eat healthier, whole foods like vegetables, whole grain, and protein-rich food instead of processed food and drinks.

Campaigns and events are organized mostly in New York, Washington D.C., and in thousands of schools in the nation.

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.




Lemon eases sinusitis and blocked noses, relieves stress and eases depression.

Inhale two drops lemon and two drops rosemary on a facial tissue for a blocked nose.

Four drops lemon and four drops rosewood in four teaspoons sweet almond carrier oil is a soothing antidepressant massage blend.

Tomorrow, how to make a massage blend?

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 from yesterday, Differentiation and De-differentiation.

When bacteria, which are single primitive cell organisms, are deprived of oxygen they are capable of survival by reverting to the process of fermentation of nutrients to produce the energy they need.

This process, called glycolysis, was the process used by primitive cells billions of years ago before oxygen became freely available in the sea and air, and is still part of the aerobic respiratory process employed by oxygen-using cells of living creatures today.

Glycolysis is an inefficient process which liberates only lesser amounts of energy from a given amount of blood sugar, leaving a residue of pyruvic acid which is converted to lactic acid and eliminated.

Oxygen-using (aerobic) cells still retain glycolysis in the initial stages of their respiratory cycle but are immensely more efficient because they can take the pyruvic acid resultant from glycolysis and combining it with oxygen, which process not only liberates about fifteen times more energy but at the same time leaves only carbon dioxide and water as by-products, substances which are completely harmless and easily eliminated.
