The worst days have an ending and the best days have a start.
THIS WEEK CONTINUING ON WE ARE DESIGNED TO SURVIVE AND ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. PLUS, THE BOOK TEN-MINUTE RELAXATION FOR MIND AND BODY.
Time to get ready for the week-end, relax and recharge.
As Dan and I was coming home from his doctor’s appointment yesterday, the radio was blasting and the windows were down; sitting in the passenger side just thinking.
Thinking about how precious life is.
Thinking that everything set before us, the trees, insects, and air that surrounded us all had a purpose for me at that very moment.
And then a truck approached us from the back, making this big noise.
Then reality came back within me.
And then I decided to compose within my thought’s todays post.
It starts like this, the most poisonous form of toxemia, however; originates in the colon, large bowel.
Because of constipation, which on the Western diet is unavoidable due to a lack of dietary fiber.
It must be understood that a person can be as regular as clockwork and still be constipated.
It sounds odd to have thoughts about this, but in reality, it’s very important to keeping our bodies healthy.
And after all this is Dan’s and my goal to reach others to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Continuing, on a natural diet of mainly fruit and vegetables (raw), low in protein and fat, the indigestible cellulose remnants are quickly processed for elimination on reaching the colon by the normal aerobic bacteria there and are then readily defecated, having made the entire transit of the digestive tract in about twenty-four hours.
However, when the undigested remnants of a high-fat, high-protein diet arrive in the colon they are difficult to break down further, and the normal aerobic bacteria must change in form to an anaerobic form which putrefies the remnants and produces different acids and toxic chemicals.
Because meat, chicken, fish, dairy products and refined carbohydrates are completely lacking in fiber, the process is slow moving.
Thus, the transit time of the Western diet is about seventy-two hours instead of twenty-four, giving the potent toxins ample time to be absorbed into the body byway of the bile circulation and to set up the irritation which leads to appendicitis and bowel cancer.
So, you see how important foods can be to maintaining a healthy body.
Will continue tomorrow-
AUGUST – 26th, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about August that’s so significant during this month?
It was a toss-up between National Toilet Paper Day and National Dog Day.
Then I was thinking of all the wonderful years I had with our dog, Buddy.
So, the holiday I chose today in honor of BUDDY-
National Dog Day – August 26, 2022
Today we are getting ready to celebrate all our furry friends in the best ways possible!
Can you believe that our furry friends have been with us for at least 14,000 years?
Thank goodness for that because what would we do without man’s best friend?
It is time to pull out all the cake and pictures of your pup and share your love for them with the world!
National Dog Day was first established in 2004 by pet & family lifestyle advocate Colleen Paige.
The aim of promoting this day is to raise awareness about adopting these animals who are currently in rescue centers.
In addition, on this day we promote dog ownership of all breeds, pure and mixed.
Embrace National Dog Day as an opportunity for all dogs to live a safe, happy and abuse-free life.
Since the first celebration in 2004, National Dog Day has grown and is now celebrated across the world.
In 2013 the holiday was written into New York legislation and can be seen on the New York State Senate’s website.
To spread the word further, those that oversee the holiday have joined forces with many rescue partners, including The Human Society of The United States and West Coast Labrador Retriever Rescue.
Together they draw attention to the number of dogs that are without a home and try to actively encourage people searching for a dog to visit an adoption shelter instead of a pet store.
Since the first day back in 2004, it is estimated that approximately one million dogs have been saved through adoption in the U.S.
For dog owners that aren’t looking to add to their family, National Dog Day has become a day for treating their friend like the legend they are and enjoying the connection that we’ve built up with dogs over thousands of years.
Colleen Paige, the founder of the holiday, also uses the day to draw attention to the multiple ways in which dogs contribute towards our society.
From putting their lives on the line to help law enforcement track down bombs or drug dealers to providing assistance for those who need it, dogs play an important role.
Nowadays dogs can even identify cancer in patients.
National Dog Day has also been using its platform to encourage dog ownership of all breeds, mixed and pure, and continuously pushes for all dogs to be allowed to live happy and abuse-free lives.
National Dog Day is on an upward trajectory and continues to grow in popularity.
It is widely covered in the media each year and rescue homes are the all-important exposure they need to get their message across.
Whether you choose to celebrate by volunteering at a rescue home, making a donation to a shelter, or by giving your furry friend an extra big cuddle, make sure you spend this day acknowledging just how awesome dogs are.
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.
THIS TIME, LIKE ALL TIMES, IS A VERY GOOD ONE; IF WE KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH IT.
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 19; DANCING WITH PORCUPINES (last chapter of the book)
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE-
Let’s review some of the important points that will help you on your way.
Today, Dan and I will post the next five –
· It’s important to have limits and boundaries and let other people know what they are.
· Though your heart may ache for your screwed-up person, it is their own responsibility to stand up and overcome their problems,
· It’s crucial to be true to yourself, even as you help where you can.
· You can’t protect everyone; you can’t stop all the wrong; you can’t control someone else.
· There’s always a danger of being sucked into dysfunctional behavior.
Tomorrow, we will continue with the last two-
Today Dan and I will be continuing on 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 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.
CHAPTER 2; THE SENSORY JOURNEY
A RAINBOW OF COLORS
Color visualization; ten-minute exercise
You may wish to tape this exercise pausing at the end of each phrase to allow time to create the images to your thoughts.
Imagine you are walking outside on a very warm day.
There is a breeze blowing, you feel very calm.
As you walk, you see a bush of deep red roses.
With petals in rich crimson shades.
You continue, and then your eye is attracted to a patch of bright orange marigolds, raising their faces to the sun.
Then a glorious golden sunflower.
As you walk, you see a clump of trees.
Heavy with rich green leaves, swaying in the wind.
After that, a patch of bluebells in spring.
Then the deep blue of delphiniums, tall summer flowers.
Finally, you stop in front of a field of lavender.
Tiny violet blooms stretching away as far as you can see.
Relax and enjoy these color sensations.
Then slowly stretch your fingers and toes to wake up.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
STARTING & ENDING
Until Saturday, it takes but one positive thought when given a
chance to survive and thrive to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts.
