I've never meditated before and oprah.com has a free 21 day challenge from Deepak Chopra all about mediation. So my focus today is that one, "to behold the abundance that surrounds me". I know it sounds corny but it feels so good to just rest for 15 minutes, then contemplate good stuff the rest of the day. emoticon

CindyRamie - Thank you for your kind words. As it turned out we were very lucky, just a lot of heavy winds and power flickering. A few miles from us people had power outages for several hours and NYC and Long Island got hit pretty bad here in NY. I said prayers for everyone in NJ and the parts of NYC that got hit hard.

I believe the best thing to do when we are focusing on our problems is to always look at how much more others are suffering. Usually it makes our problems look pretty small in comparison. I hope your problems aren't too big and that you realize that the food doesn't really change the problems, it just adds to them because afterwards we are depressed that we ate more than planned.

Today my focus was on doing a good long workout, making some extra dishes that I could put in the freezer, and catching up on some reading which I planned on finishing last month.

Thank you Lord for blessing our steps all the way to the end.

Conceive, Believe, Achieve!

GABIBEAR, I hope you and your loved ones survived Sandy! emoticon
My focus today is to not eat my way through my problems and to realize that my problems are nothing compared to those that the people on the east coast are experiencing. emoticon
