To find yourself, think for yourself.

RECAPPING ON THE SERIES; LOVE, THOUGHTS AND WORDS AND LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE FROM WEEK OF AUG 8th TO Aug 15th - 2021. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?


Hello Followers,


Good day Sunday, as I get up this morning and drink my first cup of coffee; I start thinking on the word that rounds up the week.

The thoughts and words come pouring out, with the help from the word-finder; quotes to inspire, by CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL.

Everything Dan and I breath is HEALTH, and this quote spells it out; “With health, everything is a source of pleasure; without it, nothing else - whatever it may be, is enjoyable.


Health is by far the most important element in human happiness.” By Arthur Schopenhauer

QUOTES ABOUT LIVING


THOUGHTS AND WORDS


Your mind wants to be right, but your soul wants the truth.


This is why you should never discuss conflicting ideas in anger or sadness.

Anger and sadness are emotions of the mind.


When faced with the truth your soul recognizes, you will feel in your heart.

But with anger or sadness, your mind will force you to keep arguing; find something else to be right about, or deny being wrong.


This prevents truth and peace from returning.

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.

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."

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’s post will continue on – CHAPTER FOUR, GET OFF THE FENCE; MAKING THE CHOICE!


Posting today on OWNING YOUR CHOICE!

There are six questions to ask, people who are considering whether you are going to quit or nor quit a relationship.


These questions can help ferret out the possible consequences of one’s options.

Take the time to sit down with a notebook and answer these questions as honestly as you can.


To own your choice, you must discern why the sacrifice you make is worth the effort.


1. What is best for my life long term?


2. What is best long term for those in my care?


3. What must I have from the relationship to stay? (Not what you want, would like, or need)


4. What will I absolutely not tolerate in this relationship if I stay?


5. What am I willing to lose if I end this relationship?


6. What do I expect to gain if I stay in this relationship?


THE LIFEBLOOD OF SUCCESSFUL LIVING IS OWNING YOUR CHOICES

Tomorrow, continuing owning your choices.

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 ROSEMARY. It’s amazing what and how rosemary can help keep your body healthy?

Like I promised you all yesterday, here is the recipe for ROSEMARY LAMB.


The aromatic and pungent flavors of the rosemary and garlic tame the strong taste of the lamb.


While the anchovies give it a succulent, salty quality.


The combined result is a delicious, hearty comfort food.

Ingredients:


3-5 oz jar anchovies preserved in olive oil

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

3 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary

4 lamb steaks – about 1 ½ pounds total

Instructions:


1. Drain and mince the anchovies.

2. In an 8 x 8-inch baking dish, combine the minced anchovies, olive oil, garlic, and rosemary.

3. Crush everything together with a fork until it forms a thick paste.

4. Make deep slits in the lamb with a sharp knife.

5. Place the steaks in the baking dish and rub the marinade all over the meat.

6. Make sure it gets into the slits and let marinate for about an hour at room temperature.

7. Preheat the oven to 400F.

8. Drain the excess marinade from the baking dish, leaving the meat behind.

9. Place the dish in the oven and bake for 35 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 125F in the thickest of the meat.

10. ENJOY!


Tomorrow Dan and I will be blogging on the next herb mention in food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs book. Guess what it is! I’m not good in keeping secrets, so it is SAGE.
