The quality or feeling of being grateful or thankful:
I struggle with the concept of gratitude. I feel like I'm thankful and grateful, but I always seems to slip back into complaining and being negative.  I never really get it.  I'm trying to work on this. I have so much to be thankful for.
I seem to always start projects or have ideas, but never see them through.  That is going to end today!  I'm going to start a gratitude journal. I think this is a good way to remember the little things in life that we often forget.  
If you have sometime, please watch this video. This is the reason that I'm writing about this topic today.  

Today I'm grateful that I can sit home and relax....since I had a busy day yesterday

I'm grateful for my beautiful family who loves me no matter what

I'm grateful to see the sun come out and feel the cool breeze through my windows

Arsenic In Rice

I know this might be a little late since the new about Arsenic in Rice came out last week, but I haven't really had time to blog until now.

I'm not sure that I want to eat rice in any form after hearing the news. I just recently purchased a 10lb bag of rice since it was on sale. I figured I always use it and it was a great deal and would last a while. Now, I have not idea what to do.

Dr. Oz stated that if you eat rice you should rinse if first and then boil it in six times the water, draining all water out once it's cooked. I feel that is a lot to do just to eat rice and not sure if it's worth it. Once something gets into my head that's it!

What do you think of this news, and how are you handling it?

I was told a few month ago by the Dermatologist that I had eczema on my finger. It was a constant dry scaly patch on my finger. At first I thought it was dry skin, but it just got worse.

I used the medication that was prescribed for 2 weeks and it got better. It has started coming back now. Something told me to do some research. I came across a few sites that claim it eczema could be caused by certain foods such as, dairy, wheat, grains, and sugar.

I love all of them! I can't image really living without any of these foods, but at the same time I feel like one of them could be the problem. The only way for me to find out is to just cut back on these three one at a time and see if I notice any changes. I'm starting with dairy. So I will see how it goes.

The thing that bothers me most is that I just went for a physical and had blood work, I'm completely healthy! Ugh, just don't get it. I'm hoping I get some answers soon. For now I'm trying to figure this out on my own before going back to the Dr. I started using the cream again.

On another note, I haven't binged or emotionally eaten at all this week. I'm really fighting to eat only when I'm hungry.
