Time passes by so quickly. Change happens all around us every day whether we like it or not.
INFORMATION FROM THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017 - AROMATHERAPY
It’s truly feeling like fall weather here in Virginia. Looking out through my porch sliding glass doors at some of the trees leaves that are changing, I realize with a cup of coffee in hand that its FALL. In a far-off distance the mountain colors are showing a little orange and brown.
This came to mind this morning, when I got a message yesterday that my blog needed an update - take your time, don't live too fast. Troubles will come, but they soon will pass. They say if I didn’t, I would not be able to use it. So, like anyone else would do – I pressed the update.
Well, now all my links have to be changed on each blog or no one can just press and go to them.
Since I am fixing the links, I might as well add hashtags to each blog to make it easy to follow.
Tick, tock. Every day, whether you consciously realize it or not, you're becoming a little bit older.
The aging process is exciting for some, and terrifying for many, but pretty much everyone can agree that time seems to move faster and faster with every year that passes. Even though wondering why time goes faster as you get older can seem like an absolutely ridiculous question, the scary truth is that there's actually scientific proof to the idea. Older people really do tend to perceive time as moving faster.
Scientists say if you follow the same exact routine every single day, then it's likely you're not going to remember a lot of it as the years pass by. For this reason, your 20s might seem to pass a little bit more slowly than your 50s, because by that latter age, most of your life has already become defined by routine.
I know, a lot of this seems pretty depressing at face-value. However, if you look at it from a slightly different angle; it's incredibly exciting, because there's a solution: As you age, you don't have to stop learning. On the contrary, you have a massive amount of time to learn new experiences and meet new people, over the course of a whole lifetime. By trying new things, you'll be encoding new memories, and time will seem to slow down just a little bit.
Time passes, but how you choose to spend your time is entirely up to you. There's still time to learn new things, reconnect with old friends, and improve upon yourself, no matter what decade you're living in, or what your age is. So, be patient while I fix the website and blog, it will later prove to be easier to get around.
You can’t have a better tomorrow if you are thinking about yesterday all the time.
Today I’m continuing blogging on INFORMATION FROM THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017. The subject will be on AROMATHERAPY.
The practice of aromatherapy uses natural plant extracts, such as essential oils, hydrosols, and carrier oils, in a variety of ways to heal the body, mind and spirit. It is the promotion and harmonization of emotional, physical and spiritual health through the application of these extracts.
Aromatherapy is described as both an art and a science because it takes the knowledge of the scientific aspects of the plants and oils and combines it with the art of producing a beneficial blend. Aromatherapy can be used topically and via inhalation.
Internal use of aromatherapy is essentially a branch of aromatic medicine and using aromatherapy. This way is only advised by an experienced and qualified therapist, or by using products professionally formulated for internal use (e.g., capsules or tincture blends containing highly diluted essential oils).
Since time began, aromatic plants have been used in various ways to perfume and to heal.
They have taken many forms such as infused oils, extracts, and distilled oils (although not necessarily in the way that we see essential oils distilled today). The ancient Egyptians revered scent in many forms, as a cosmetic, medicinal, and as a part of their religious practice.
The ancient Romans saw scent as a status symbol and much of Rome’s high society were known to use common plants such as lavender and rose in everyday life. The Romans helped to spread the knowledge of aromatic plants throughout the Roman Empire to places such as Great Britain, which led to a wide use of aromatic plants during Medieval Europe.
I THINK ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE❗
Good morning 🌞 Monday - I think anything is possible if you have a mindset and the will, desire to do it; plus put the time in❤️
The modern-day term of aromatherapy, or aromathérapie as it is known in French, was only devised by the French perfumer and chemist, René-Maurice Gattefossé in 1937. Gattefossé is most well-known for the incident in which he accidently burned his hand in his laboratory and plunged it in a vat of lavender.
Today the practice of aromatherapy incorporates the use of essential oils, hydrosols, and carrier oils for holistic healing. Aromatic oils and water are used for their therapeutic properties to heal the mind, body and spirit, returning the body to a state of equilibrium.
Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it.
The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use. Earl Nightingale

Until tomorrow, it’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future.
Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it, and we can hope for the future.
Strong, dark and a picker upper,
To an awesome start of the day.
Its wonderful to relax with
The birds singing and the dogs barking.
Nature all around is at a standstill
Not waiting for the sky to become night.
Coffee is calling me as I sit
And wait for the day to start.
Thank you, morning coffee.
