NEW SERIES OF TRUST AND LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. ALSO CONTINUING THE SERIES ON HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
My oh my it’s Saturday all! Saturday is a day when most people get to do what they want to do.
For most of us it is a day off from work. Most of us sense enthusiasm and excitement to see this day.
The beginning of the weekend is where we can choose to do nothing, choose to spend time with family and friends or choose to work on a project or hobby. Saturday allows us the choice to do what we want to do! It is a funny thing about Saturday, through the week the alarm goes off and we don't want to get up. But on Saturday there is no alarm clock yet we wake up and get up.
Yesterday we went grocery shopping instead of today, since we were over near the parkway where we like to do our walking. The co-op had organic iced tea there on sale; three for $3.00. The brand is Honest. The reason why I am bringing this up is, on every top inside there is a saying. The one that Dan and I had last night said; I am not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.
This saying to me means, how not to be afraid of the up and downs in life. If we are learning, if we realize that we are the captain of our ship then we can get through what life brings in front of us.
Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties and toughness. It is having a positive mindset of no matter what has happened, what can I do now. We can either be taken down by the events or rise above them. Be RESILIENT! This is why I started this blog several years ago, it’s to share the knowledge of balancing our bodies from disease.
Doing our best to make a difference is how we instill our lives with meaning. By Ernie J Zelinski
The past week I’ve been blogging on TRUST, yes that’s right! Again, stress and trust have a lot in common and can affect you and make your cells angry; which means an unhealthy body.
So, let’s continue with other signs that you can look for that you can trust your partner.
The eighth sign is that your partner takes care of your interests. They take a keen interest in the happenings in your life whether it’s about friends, work, or anything else. They pay attention to your talk and wants to know you better than anyone else.
The ninth sign is they mingle with your family and friends: They have no qualms interacting with your family and is friendly with them. They have good intentions for your family and considers them to be a part of their family. You would be lucky to get a person like that.
The tenth sign is they don’t mind you checking their phone. If they snatch their phone when you randomly check it, it’s not a good sign in your relationship. If they are answering the phone and checking the texts in front of you, it means they have nothing to hide from you; it’s a healthy sign.
More signs to look for tomorrow, stay tune.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
Rebuilding trust when it has been broken doesn’t depend only on the person who broke it and on how many times, they can prove they will be honest. It depends on the person who has had their trust broken.
If they choose to trust again, and if they are able to, the relationship may be worth another try.
If they are not able to trust again at all and would be in a constant panicked or anxious emotional state, the relationship has no hope of survival and should be ended.

RANCHO LA SALUD ORGANIC FARM AND VILLAGE - Jun 6, 2013
Yesterday Dan and I were invited by Marco to visit an organic farm in Ajijic, Mexico. This organic farm specialized in blackberries. The owner took us around to the green houses; there are seven huge green houses with several huge blackberry plants along with some other vegetables.
I was told the history of how this came about and was amazed by the passion from the owner.
He received a grant by a company in Israel for the building of the green houses that were solidly built to last for 30 years.
With a partnership of another person, they have decided to make blackberry jam and jelly. I had the privilege to try some and fell in love with the taste and the fact that there were huge whole blackberries throughout it. The other day I made Dan and I French toast topped with the jam. Yum, it was fabulous.
As our visit continued, Dan and I learned more about the farm and village. We also learned the dream of the owner and how this community will be set up. It was something that I have never heard of before. It will be a community of sustainability.
The village will provide a lifestyle that improves and enhances the lives. They are creating an extended family where they will care about each other. The residents will share the common goals of cooperation, self-sufficiency, health, education, and living lightly on the land.
Purpose, Mission and Values
Vision: Creating a village for people who want to enjoy life to the fullest. While practicing good health, and engaging in learning, they are also valuing their neighbors as they age.
Mission: Creating an international village where they are connected to their neighbors and are using renewable resources to the fullest extent while enjoying life, and having an adventure while taking care of themselves. They are living together in harmony, being healthy, exercising and constantly learning from themselves and others.
Values: Each person acknowledges that to be part of this community is both a privilege and a responsibility. It is a privilege to choose to come together with others to live and thrive for a common vision. Each of them makes available our experience, strengths, and interests for ongoing personal and community development. Each of them aspires to act from these common values and principles:
Community: The village is committed to building community, sharing resources, and sharing a sense of neighborhood. They intend to create a community where they can thrive and belong for a lifetime. They strive for mutual respect among themselves that honors differing viewpoints and beliefs. They believe in the goodness of others. They want to share time and resources with their neighbors in order to meet each other's needs. They work for the common good of the community.
Diversity: They are committed to creating diversity in age, race, ethnicity, income level, sexual orientation, physical ability, and interests. They respect and support the uniqueness and growth of each member and themselves as a group.
Individuals: They want to live life to the fullest, to be kind and considerate and to be open and authentic in their relationships; to be truthful and honest.
Stewardship: To conserve and protect the natural environment, to live lightly on the land.
They strive to live their lives without compromising the integrity of future generations to meet their needs.
Participation: They are a community in which all residents share the tasks and pleasures of creating and maintaining the physical and social aspects of their common lives.
Education: They desire to educate themselves and to help each other grow in life-long learning.
Health: To practice health and well-being in choosing a life-style of healthy eating, exercise, people connection, and mental activity.
Helping Others: They want to help others in need and to give back both within and outside the community.
Setting an example: They want to set an example for others to follow. To make known our way of life and to show how others may live this way; to leave a legacy.

Another good day!
Otro Bello Amanecer!
Today, I’m continuing 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.
For more information click on book
Continuing on CHAPTER ONE – PUT ON YOUR GLASSES.
OK, today I’m posting on relationship low points, can be hope points. Do you really want to bring about positive change in your negative relationship? If so, you must be willing to change first.
Unless you change first, it is unlikely your relationship will do anything but sink deeper into distress.
Reactive behavior rarely brings positive change. Change in your screwed-up person is far more likely when they recognize that there is something different about you.
Change causes surprise. Those around ask, why are you so different? That’s the hope point! Your change may be a stimulus for change in others. It is impossible to continue the same type of interaction if one of the parties has metamorphosed their actions and responses.
Tomorrow I will continue on with it takes only one person to change a relationship (having realistic expectations).
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. Continuing on the health benefits on PEPPERMINT. You might be surprised!
Peppermint works as an anti-inflammatory
There is this refreshing mint-infused tuna salad, which has all the healing benefits of peppermint plus the added benefits of omega-3 rich wild tuna. It’s a brain food, great for digestion and power anti-inflammatory and you can get a lot more healing benefits when you combine peppermint with other products.
The recipe is super easy:
1 can of Safe Catch Tuna (people should be more brand sensitive because many tunas are toxic with mercury)
1 tsp. crushed mint leaves
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. grated garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
Add all ingredients in a bowl and mix. Enjoy over a salad or in a wrap.
Tomorrow I’ll post more peppermint benefits.
NOTE AND REPEAT – PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth
THIS IS AN ENCLOSURE – will be at the end of all the blogs, for I stress; this daily routine will heal and keep your body cells happy.
As I end this blog, Dan and I for several years have shared our experiences with enjoying life while managing cancer. By keeping healthy, our routine daily has been walking (exercise), meditation (for stress), Qigong (exercise and for stress).
Yesterday it was 89F but felt like 90F as we went walking. Dan and my new thing are shadow selfie's kissing. 👥 check them out!
I know some will say they do not have enough time with work, kids and household chores!!!
Dan and I have put together videos from WALK AT HOME together on our website, that you can follow in home; when you have short periods of time and unable to go out. They are from 15 mins up to 30 mins depending on the miles. This is one of the first steps to making your cells happy!!

“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

TWO TO DO THE TRUST TANGO
Until Sunday, it takes two to do the trust tango; the one who risks (the trustor) and the one who is trustworthy (the trustee). Each must play their role.
