Gestalt Prayer

I saw this on a blog today while waiting for cookies to bake, (oreo type sandwich cookies). I think it's great, so I had to post it on my blog.

Gestalt Prayer
I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I,
and if by chance we find each other,
it's beautiful.
If not, it can't be helped.
(Fritz Perls, 1969)

Just a note to those of you who follow my blog and know about my battle with the buldge, the cookies are for my kids and not for me. I am staying strong and continue my workouts. I am stuck at the 15 pounds lost mark. I worked out like a fiend just this morning and hope to start losing weight again soon. That said, here is the cookie recipe I used today, that I got from my sister eons ago:

Cake Mix Cookies
any cake mix (I prefer chocolate cake and vanilla frosting, like oreos, but you can use whichever combination of cake mix and frosting you like)
1 Tub of Frosting
2 Eggs, Beaten
1/2 Cup Oil
1/4 Cup Flour

PReheat oven to 350*F. Beat eggs in bowl. Add cake mix, oil, and flour. Stir. Roll into balls and cook on ungreased cookie sheet for 10 minutes only. They will be soft. (At this point I smash the cookies down with a spatula to make them flat). Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack. Once the cookies are cool, spread frosting on one cookie and add another cookie to the top to make a sandwich.

I put about 9 cookie balls on each cookie sheet, so they don't spread into one another, and I got about 36 single cookies from one recipe. I hope you try them and like them, Enjoy!


  1. Girl, losing 15 pounds is great!!! Way to go! I just finished my Wii Active 30 day challenge and just started another one yesterday. I have not noticed a weight loss, but have lost inches. Guessing because muscle weighs more then fat. I totally changed the way I eat and drink too. Kinda went vegan. Ha! When you started out did you notice the same thing?

  2. Thanks for the comment!It's great you lost 15 pounds!Go on!
