The clock is running. Make the most of today.
THIS WEEK BLOG IS ON THE SERIES, DON’T LET YOUR ALARM CLOCK, BE THE ONLY REASON YOU WAKE UP AND ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. PLUS, FINISHING THE HERBS – ASTRAGALUS AND STARTING THE BOOK TEN-MINUTE RELAXATION FOR MIND AND BODY.
Being fulfilled is an awesome feeling, but unfortunately, it’s a feeling that many have trouble finding.
Especially on a Tuesday!
Fulfillment is an easy concept on the surface, yet it’s so elusive.
However, living a fulfilling life is well within the reach of everyone.
Stop making life so difficult.
Sometimes, life is meant to be simple.
Stop overanalyzing everything and making every decision complicated and complex.
Life isn’t meant to be filled with stress.
Chill out and take a walk through the park.
This is one component that fulfills Dan’s and my life.
We also have punched fear in the face and got to living.
After twelve years of surviving cancer, Dan and I learned to manage our lives with help from our amazing doctors in Mexico.
Fear is a natural part of our lives.
Conquering fear starts in our heads and the mindset that we approach fear with.
Experiencing failure provides value when it comes to living a fulfilling life and being the best version of yourself.
Through failures, you’ll learn lessons that will make you a better person down the road.
JULY – 19th, 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?
Stick Out Your Tongue Day – July 19, 2022
Stick Out Your Tongue Day is celebrated annually on July 19.
We’ve all stuck our tongues out at people in a playful way.
While many cultures find it rude and childish, did you know that the gesture of sticking out your tongue is seen as a polite greeting in Tibet?
You can even stick your tongue out without judgment at the doctor’s office, as they check your throat for any potential infections.
The tongue is an important organ of the body and is actually a group of muscles that work without the support of the skeleton. The tongue is primarily responsible for taste and serves as a means to detect potential infections or illnesses.
It also helps to naturally clean the teeth, enable speech in humans, and for vocalization in other animals.
This rather important organ has an unusual holiday dedicated to it in the form of Stick Your Tongue Out Day.
Stick Out Your Tongue Day is celebrated every year in July, mainly in the United States, however, the reason behind celebrating this peculiar holiday remains a mystery.
There are different theories behind the significance of this day.
While some say it encourages one to go to the doctor, others see it as an opportunity to playfully stick their tongue out at an unsuspecting individual.
Several people believe it is extremely rude to stick your tongue out at someone and is a mark of disrespect.
However, children stick their tongues out as a sign of silliness.
Many times, sticking your tongue out can also be an automatic reaction when engaging in tasks that require maximum concentration.
There might be several reasons for this day, nevertheless, ever since it came about, it has been enjoyed by many as it provides some element of fun in our otherwise serious lives.
So, let’s stick out our TONGUES!
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.
FOLLOW YOUR HEART BUT TAKE YOUR BRAIN WITH YOU.
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
A healthy relationship is like a dance with the partners dancing to the same music.
They form a team and their footwork and moves are coordinated to make the dance flow.
Partnering, encouraging each other, and mutual support are the underpinnings of such a relationship.
A dance partner cannot be the orchestra conductor.
If a partner becomes the conductor, the dance is no longer a mutual effort.
The conductor takes over and your partner simply waits to be told how to feel the music.

Today will be the start of a new 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 with you at all times; 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.
For example, spend ten minutes focusing on a softly flickering candle; make a delicious banana smoothie that’s rich in stress-beating B vitamins.
Also soaking in a hot, deep bath scented with aromatic calming essential oil; while bathing your ears with gentle and uplifting music, or treating your feet to a soothing massage.
These are just a few of the ways you can work with your senses to bring peace and harmony into your life.
When you master the art, you’ll bring all your senses together for some really creative relaxation.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
THE CLOCK IS RUNNING
Until Wednesday, time waits for no one. Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift.
That's why it is called the present.
