Mercy and Peace
It is well to learn the meaning of these two words. We are at the mercy of others and we need to be merciful toward others. The result of mercy is peace. Your health is reflective on how your relationship is toward others. If your not healthy, your not happy, no matter how many wordly goods you may acquire. Stressful relationships can destroy your peace.
Avoid stress and acquire Peace! Being nasty or unkind is a decision. Choose kindness. Be merciful and charitable. It is the better way. Learn to turn your head instead, avoiding conflict. Deflect injury when you can. Learning to avoid a fight helps maintain a balance within your body which results in good health. Be a good communicator. Look into the other persons eye, keep your tone down, and listen to what someone else has to say. Agree that at times you must disagree and that is okay. Work on patience, some things take time. And, remember the word "Love One Another". Some things are better left "unsaid." Work at not provoking another. Are you a muller? Someone who rehashes things that people have done to hurt you, whether in word, or something they did. Reliving negative events will take its toll over and over in your body. "Let it go". Some people live to hurt others, and they know how to get to you. We can't control others, nor are we responsible for their actions. Forgive, forget. Let go of the past. You can only exist in the moment. Sometimes, you simply must walk away, leaving it behind you. Try, and if that doesn't work, try again. Everything has it's limit.
You've heard this before, "You reap what you sow." ....When you hurt others it comes back to you. What happens interiorly when thoughts are released from your brain and heart that are negative or harmful toward any living thing, or (yourself)is a reaction that destroys the natural balances in your own body, which result in illness, and sometimes death.
One of the best ways to prevent sickness and aging is to keep the body in an even keel. A forgiving, positive, and prayerful soul is a well-tuned instrument created by God, who reaps the full enjoyment of their being, in good health, and exists in peace.

Many will wonder how I came up with this very unusual title. Who in their right mind would want to blog on this topic. A mom, grandmother, or anyone who cares for small children, worldwide. What if I told you to kiss the boo-boo is the "cure all" for all ages? That has been my philosophy for and the basis for this blog. What am I, I am a boo-boo kisser. I make it all better. I am sharing my thoughts and views, not intended to offend any reader, but to express the lessons life has taught me. These are solely my experiences and reflect my feelings! Looking for others to share as well...
