Weekly Moment of Gratitude - Surviving the Hurricane!

This week, I am grateful for

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Making it through Hurricane Irene! I hope everyone is somewhere warm, safe, and dry today!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Making Lemonade out of Lemons, I spent the weekend watching movies and trying to shut out the storm outside. What did you do this weekend to keep busy and hide from the storm?

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - While there are wildly mixed opinions on this matter, I applaud the City for being what other's called 'over-prepared and 'overly cautious'. Had trains been in service this weekend, would you have wanted to be caught in a train stuck in the tunnels getting flooded?

What are you grateful for today? I'd love for you to write in and share what you are grateful for this week. The more you say it, the more you speak it, and the more you live in gratitude, the more you will find reasons to be grateful for, and the more reasons that the universe will send you to be grateful for. So join me on this journey of gratitude and inspiration. And you can post here daily (even though my list will be posted weekly).

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.

Irene is coming! Are you Prepared?

After an Earthquake that still has most of us shaking (us East Coasters don't experience them as frequently as our friends on the West Coast), we are preparing this weekend for a Hurricane. Hurricane 'Irene' is on it's way!

I was shocked to hear on the news today that the 'City that NEVER Sleeps' is actually preparing for this Hurricane by SHUTTING DOWN.

As of Noon on Saturday, all mass transit including: Trains, Buses, Path Trains, Metro North and Long Island Railroad will shut down. I've lived in New York City my entire life, and to hear that the City is actually going to shut down is a very bizarre feeling. There was pandemonium in the Supermarkets with people pushing and shoving and the storm hasn't even arrived yet!

On the news I also saw that the Casinos are even shutting down, and if NYC Mass Transit shutting down entirely wasn't enough of a warning, that sure is!

I pray this storm veers off and no one is affected, but it doesn't hurt to prepare!  Check out the advice on Hurricane Preparedness from the National Weather Service's National Hurricane Center.

I haven't even seen bigger disasters shut this City down! New Yorkers are a pretty tough bunch.

I just want to remind you all, that if you live in an area where evacuation is required, please do as advised and get yourself and family to safety!

Be Safe Butterflies!
