The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.
STARTING A NEW SERIES ON; POWER AND CONTINUING LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
This morning when I woke up the word power heavy weighed on my mind.
As I continue the series on power, I realize that we all want power of some sort or another.
During my research, this comes with obligation and responsibility, which some altogether discard.
Our health has a lot to do with the power of choice which comes from the outside as well as the inside.
Many assume power comes from outside-in.
They believe power is granted to a person by someone else.
They see power as a position or title, which comes with authority and control, and a belief in the form of supremacy over others.
Others believe that real power comes from inside-out.
They maintain that power is the ability of each individual to cultivate by themselves.
Real power is increased within a person simply by the choices they make, the actions they take, and the thoughts they create.
I believe power is available to everyone, no matter their position or title.
How many are you out there are left-handers?
I raise my left hand! When I was growing up, I learned everything right-handed; which made everything I did the wrong way.
It’s time to share some words from THE LEFT-HANDER’S HANDBOOK.
WHY ARE THINGS SO TOUGH ON LEFT-HANDERS?
Most flatfish lie down on their side.
This makes them right-handed.
The Pacific sand dab is one of the few that lies down on the other side.
This makes it left-handed.
Or rather, left-finned.
There are even a few sea shells that curve left-handedly.
They are prized by collectors.
Lobsters are sometimes left-handed.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
The word power has many definitions, but one it has become; attached to is negative.
All power means is concentrated energy.
A lot of energy without focus or concentration is just static and serves little purpose.
But focused energy becomes power, which can change people, circumstances, and situations worldwide.
You have great power.
When you use your power to initiate, whether it be starting a bowling league or cleaning up a neighborhood; others are attracted to it and the power increases.

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.
25 PICTURES - ENJOY THE SLIDE SHOW
"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.

Today I will start on – CHAPTER SIX; HEAL THE HIDDEN WOUND.
NO ONE WILL IMPROVE YOUR LOT IF YOU! DO NOT.
Remember the old saying, sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me?
It’s not true!
When people relate to each other by hurling insulting names, belittling criticism, and degrading comments, internal bleeding begins.
When they hide hurtful acts behind loving words, bruises form.
When they say, you never do it right!
You don’t measure up!
You aren’t what I expected!
You are such a failure, the twinkle inside us dies.
Broken bones heal more easily than a spirit that is wounded by abusive words or acts.
A battered and broken spirit limps through life seeking affirmation, or strikes out to prove, I’m okay; be being bigger and better.
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. In the coming week, Dan and I will be blogging the benefits of THYME. It’s amazing what and how thyme can help keep your body healthy?
Thyme is one of our most revered herbs for the treatment of upper respiratory infection, cough and congestion.
Herbalists widely recognize its value as an adjunct therapy in asthma formula.
Stay tune for tomorrow, more on thyme.
NOTE AND REPEAT – PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth
THIS IS AN ENCLOSURE – will be at the end of all the blogs, for I stress; this daily routine will heal and keep your body cells happy.
As I end this blog, Dan and I for several years have shared our experiences with enjoying life while managing cancer. By keeping healthy, our routine daily has been walking (exercise), meditation (for stress), Qigong (exercise and for stress).
I know some will say they do not have enough time with work, kids and household chores!!!
Dan and I have put together videos from WALK AT HOME together on our website, that you can follow in home; when you have short periods of time and unable to go out. They are from 15 mins up to 30 mins depending on the miles. This is one of the first steps to making your cells happy!!
Also, meditation videos, help to lower stress and is also one of the first steps to making your cells happy; click on https://www.thejourneytogoodhealth.com/meditation
