Most of us are excellent at being self-deprecating, and are not so good at the opposite. Tell us your favorite thing about yourself.
Okay, so – I may or may not go the humble route and if I’m not very humble about it, sorry? If I had to really pat myself on the back for something and pick something about myself that is one of my favorite things – I think it’d have to be…*drum roll* I always try to do what’s right whether it is for myself or others. There are some times I have faltered perhaps in my duties in giving people a much-needed “Clue x 4” to the face. I figure, if I don’t give it to them – eventually someone will (everything happens in its own divine time and place in my book). You can’t force anyone to be what they naturally don’t feel comfortable with or doing, not until they are ready to make that change themselves.
I always try to do what I feel is right. Sometimes that has been at my own expense. I still did it though because I understood the entirety of the circumstances I was in, what was needed and I made – what I felt – were the appropriate decisions of that time. Some of those decisions were appropriate sacrifices that needed to be made. Other decisions I have made have not always been seen as the right course of action. Sometimes my actions or even inaction has still led to the pain and suffering of friends, family or others. I hate to see those I love suffer or be in pain because it hurts me too very deeply. I also dislike to be the cause of that pain, but sometimes I can’t help that either. Sometimes it’s needed. This is often times why I put up with what I do or why I tell my friends, “If you want the honest to God/dess ugly truth, you better ask for it so I know you’re prepared“. More

Why do I love the herb Peppermint? Well there’s a number of reasons why I love this herb as much as I do, the only thing that annoys me is our blatant marketing of Peppermint flavored this, that or the other during the holiday season (specifically Christmas time) ONLY it seems. But this special Herb is good ALL year round and is quite helpful for several things health wise.
To me this Herb tastes wonderful, smells good and is crisp and refreshing. It’s my preferred mint of the other two I know of and are more commonly used in other mint related treats we keep all year around (some of which don’t actually contain real mint flavoring *gasp!*).
So what are some of the AWESOME things Peppermint oil or the plant itself can do for us? Here is a simple list: More
