BEGINNING A NEW SERIES OF FORGIVENESS AND CONTINUING THE SERIES ON HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
Well, Dan and I are on the road. Driving today to Georgia hopefully, that’s our goal and then to Florida. Yesterday was a busy day, you know when ever you take a trip there is always preparation.
We were getting Heckle settled and ready for our maintenance man, for he is always happy to take care of him while we are gone. Today I had Heckle out for a much longer time and he was trying to tell me, look I can lift weights. Check this out –
Then back to packing our clothes along with picnic food for our drive. So, tomorrows post will be hopefully from Georgia.
Until then, why should you forgive someone? The first step to healing is to find it in your heart to forgive those who have wronged you. These forgiveness quotes will help you let go of the past and not allow anger to poison your heart.
Forgiveness is a difficult emotion for so many of us. Due to too much hate and anger inside us, we find it almost impossible in some situations to let go of the past, or move on from the wrongs that others have done to us.
However, it is through forgiving and letting go of those perceived injustices that truly allows us to be free.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
Forgiveness requires strength and the ability to see that its true benefit is for your own happiness.
If someone stole from you, holding on to resentment won’t bring your things back, but it will keep anger alive in your heart. If you were cheated on or deceived, holding on to anger won’t make that person any more honest or undo anything that’s been done, but it will keep a place in your heart imprisoned.
Allowing past anger to exist in the present will damage or limit new relationships.
PLAN A SPECIAL DAY
It’s hard to spend time with our siblings or parents. Book a date with your loved one and do something you’ll both enjoy.
Perhaps tickets to the theatre will tick the box, or a day out walking around a new town and treating yourselves to lunch.
The important thing is not what you’re doing, but that you’re doing it together without the usual distractions of life.

CONTINUING THE SERIES ON HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
IT’S SAFE IN MEXICO FOR HUMANS, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE BULLS? - Nov 24, 2015
IT’S SAFE IN MEXICO FOR HUMANS, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE BULLS?
Since we moved to Mexico, Dan has been wanting to experience the culture around us. From time to time, we have been visiting different areas that are on Dan’s bucket list. Just three weeks ago we visited Mexico City and was very surprised of the size and how easy it was to communicate without speaking Spanish. It reminded me of New York City, but larger. After visiting; we realized that it is the sixth largest city in the world.
Well, getting off the track ~ let me tell you a secret. Dan and I was going to go to a bull fight in Mexico City, but did not have time so when we got back to the Chapala area, he looked up the bull fight schedule in Guadalajara. They were still around!!! Dan said, why not this week end.
So off we went to Plaza De Toros where the famous bull fights take place. So naïve, I did not think about what it consisted of, just that it was a culture that we wanted to experience while we lived in Mexico. Well, the stadium was exactly how I had pictured it would be, however when it came to the bull fight show I was shocked.
I am sure that the matador has talent and the skill of an ancient tradition, but I saw it as torture on the bull’s part. It’s something that Dan and I will only experience once. Now we can check it off our bucket list.
To understand why and how, I did a little of searching and found this. Bullfighting traces its roots to prehistoric bull worship and sacrifice in Mesopotamia and the Mediterranean region.
The first recorded bullfight may be the Epic of Gilgamesh, which describes a scene in which Gilgamesh and Enkidu fought and killed the Bull of Heaven ("The Bull seemed indestructible, for hours they fought, till Gilgamesh dancing in front of the Bull, lured it with his tunic and bright weapons, and Enkidu thrust his sword, deep into the Bull's neck, and killed it"). Bull leaping was portrayed in Crete, and myths related to bulls throughout Greece. The killing of the sacred bull (tauroctony) is the essential central iconic act of Mithras, which was commemorated in the mithraeum wherever Roman soldiers were stationed. The oldest representation of what seems to be a man facing a bull is on the Celtiberian tombstone from Clunia and the cave painting El toro de hachos, both found in Spain.
Bullfighting is often linked to Rome, where many human-versus-animal events were held as competition and entertainment, the Venationes. These hunting games spread to Africa, Europe and Asia during Roman times.
There are also theories that it was introduced into Hispania by the Emperor Claudius, as a substitute for gladiators, when he instituted a short-lived ban on gladiatorial combat.
The latter theory was supported by Robert Graves (picadors are related to warriors who wielded the javelin, but their role in the contest is now a minor one limited to "preparing" the bull for the matador.) Spanish colonists took the practice of breeding cattle and bullfighting to the American colonies, the Pacific and Asia. In the 19th century, areas of southern and southwestern France adopted bullfighting, developing their own distinctive form.
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs.
Continuing blogging on the herb - PARSLEY. Parsley can be used in many different ways to support almost every aspect of your health. Yesterday the topic ended with parsley is a natural diuretic.
Today I’m blogging on the anti-inflammatory properties of parsley.
The anti-inflammatory properties of parsley make it the ideal natural treatment for stopping the discomfort and irritation from bug bites and rashes. Consuming the extract or an infused parsley oil, helps you to absorb the potent effects of the herb.
As a result, patients dealing with the effects of inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis may gain some relief from their pain symptoms by using parsley extract and adding parsley to their meals. Consuming parsley is good for the health of your liver, and the protective properties of the herb may help with the treatment of liver conditions such as fatty liver disease and cirrhosis.
Parsley has a rich tradition as a healing herb in the Mediterranean, where traditional healers use the plant to treat symptoms of inflammation associated with bruises, toothaches, and skin disorders. Juicing parsley is an efficient way of accessing all of the vital nutrients and polyphenols found in the herb. Drinking the juice every morning helps to reduce systemic inflammation.
NOTE AND REPEAT – PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth

“Surrender is a gift that you can give yourself. It’s an act of faith. It’s saying that even though I can’t see where this river is flowing, I trust it will take me in the right direction.” ~ Debbie Ford
