Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.
CONTINUING ON THE SERIES OF LOVE AND CONTINUING ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE FROM LAST WEEK. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
Dan and I make it a point to take a walk each day, as we do, we make it an adventure.
When we say “adventure” we often think about traveling or trying different activities that seem risky and can give us the right adrenaline kick.
But to Dan and I, adventure is a lot more than that. It’s anything that can take you out of your comfort zone. It can be a new opportunity or the courage to start again. Any challenge, any experience that is daring or risky can be considered a new adventure. When we go out to a new park to walk, we never know what we will face.
Well, it’s when we’re children that we love adventure the most. That’s when everything is new to us, exciting and worth exploring. For Dan and I its still exciting to explore new areas to walk.
Here in Virginia, there are several areas to explore and they are amazing. For us going on these walks just not to heal our bodies, but also our souls. Through the nature that surrounds us, sounds from the birds, sound of water and laughter form others, we take so much peace home with us.
The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for a newer and richer experience. BY ELEANOR ROOSEVELT
As children, we don’t think too much about consequences and we love a challenge. As adults, we tend to weigh every aspect before doing something. And that’s the right thing to do, but sometimes we overthink things and we deny ourselves a lot of experiences that could feed and heal our souls. So today make a promise to yourself that you will do whatever it takes to reignite your adventurous spirit.
This leads to our trust, commitment and intimacy in our relationship.
Lasting relationships are marked by deep levels of trust, commitment, and intimacy.
Every relationship is unique, and each person brings their own history and needs. Some things that you can do to show love to the people you care about include:
Ø Be willing to be vulnerable
Ø Be willing to forgive
Ø Do your best and be willing to apologize when you make mistakes
Ø Let them know that you care
Ø Listen to what they have to say
Ø Prioritize spending time with the other person
Ø Reciprocate loving gestures and acts of kindness
Ø Recognize and acknowledge their good qualities
Ø Share things about yourself
Ø Show affection
Ø Show unconditional love
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
There’s a big difference between giving someone the benefit of the doubt and turning a blind eye to anything someone does just because you like them a lot.
Being generous and understanding are great qualities, just make sure someone doesn’t use them all up on you.
Kindness should be appreciated; not taken advantage of.

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."

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 Dan and I will be continuing to post CHAPTER THREE – WHO IS SCREWED UP?
It’s easy to recognize the people who have become victors in difficult relationships. They have realized that changing the other person does not work. So, they develop whatever is necessary to find a sense of peace within their difficult relationship and a way to be happy as they handle their responsibilities and commitments.
You ask what can I do in this impossible situation?
The reality is clear, the person who is driving you crazy may never change. But we can change ourselves and the relationship for the better. We can disarm a dysfunctional relationship by taking control of your own acts.
Tomorrow continuing 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!
Did you know peppermint relieves nausea! Peppermint can help control breathing and provide vomiting symptom relief, according to a 2014 study. Once again, its numbing effect relaxes stomach muscles so that bile can break down fats.
Tomorrow, yes – I will be posting a simple recipe; MINT RAITA.
FOR DAN AND SHERRY
