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!

Weekend Words of Inspiration and THREE giveaways!

Keep Your 'lil Halloweenies' safe!

Just a reminder from the CDC on ways to make Halloween both fun and safe for the little ones HERE!

I have fond memories of Halloween as a child, and it saddens me that there are many children who have NEVER experienced the fun of 'trick or treating' because of the ever present dangers. Will there be a generation coming soon who doesn't even know what 'trick or treating' is?

Where do we draw the line between keeping kids and teens safe and not letting them enjoy being young?

As adults the holiday still presents some dangers, and I just wanted to send out a friendly reminder, especially to the ladies reading this, if  you attend a party, be it in a nightclub, bar or house party, if you go dance, and leave your drink behind, DO NOT go back for it. Please Buy a NEW one! While this is certainly true all the time, this weekend, keep this advice ever present in your mind. I would also highly suggest not going to a separate location with a dashing costumed stranger.......telling your friends 'I'm going outside for a cigarette with the tall vampire' is not going to help if you go missing, there will be a ton of vamps out there! LOL And a word of caution to all readers, do not drink and drive, do not get in a car with a drunk friend, do not let a drunk friend drive, Period.

If anyone is dressing as a butterfly, I'd love to see it! Please post your best butterfly halloween costume pics here.....there may even be a TREAT in it for you! And any tall, cute, boy vampires, are also encouraged to post here! ;-) 

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I am beautiful inside and outside of the mask.' :-)

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
