A little Serenity Prayer wisdom goes a long way...you are so right! Accepting the conditions beyond one's control yet seizing anything which IS under one's control...such as our health and wellness! :-)

I focus on the things that I can do.
Saving money by using coupons and watching sales, going to fewer places & planning my trips to save on gas.
Learning new skills that I can add to my resume. I hope to start learning a new language courtesy of Rosetta Stone, I just have to pick which language.
I am getting to know my neighbors better since I am now available to help them or let them help me with things around the yard or just a glass of tea & conversation.
Other than those types of things I try to remind myself of the current economic condition and remind myself that it really is not me, it's happening to a lot of people right now.

I keep looking for more and more tips, suggestions, etc. to pass along for all of you. These are SUCH difficult times and you need all the information you can get to tilt the odds in your favor!

Being a student of the self-study course A Course in Miracles really helps. That and SP, of course!

If it weren't for the SP site (articles, etc.) and the exercising, I'd be staring at Gmail waiting for a resume response to pop up.

SP definitely keeps my spirits up -- and keeps me busy.

How are you dealing with things?

I've already had all the bad things thrown at me early in life, so now that those are out of the way, my future should be wonderful.
