Coffee Adventures

Standard

Novel, Rain, The Carpenters, & Coffee ❤

On this rainy Friday, my cup of steaming, soothing coffee is helping me kick the rainy blues! Well, maybe that and the fact I basically have more sugar & creamer than coffee…but, that’s how I like it! My Carpenters Pandora station is easing the rainy blues too. Side Note: “The Flock” is an amazing memior of a woman who lived with, discovered, and overcame multiple personalities.

Wake the F**K Up Coffee

Today’s coffee selection can be found in almost every store in New Orleans! I love it. It’s extra strong, and could you really pass up the picture with the name? Plus, its aroma is soo tempting. It’s almost like a hybrid between wine and a cigar barrell. It’s made from “Costa Rican & Brazilian coffees, Artisan roasted and ground in New Orleans. Espresso beans are ground into the mix”. Oh yes, it’s delicious. It’s a very heavy coffee, very strong. If you don’t like strong coffee, it’s not for you.

To send you off this today, I’ll leave you with an inspirational message :”Everything is as it is meant to Be.  It is what it is/you are who you are for reasons beyond human comprehension.  All is divine perfection.”

Inspirations for Your Day!

Standard

Nothing motivates me more than a beautiful, powerful quote!

Eleanor Roosevelt

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.”

“A little simplification would be the first step toward rational living, I think.”

“Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product. ”

“Friendship with ones self is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.”

“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.”

“You can never really live anyone else’s life, not even your child’s. The influence you exert is through your own life, and what you’ve become yourself. ”

Cher

“I’ve always taken risks, and never worried what the world might really think of me.”

“If you really want something you can figure out how to make it happen.”

“Until you’re ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great.”

“Women have to harness their power – its absolutely true. It’s just learning not to take the first no. And if you can’t go straight ahead, you go around the corner.”

“I only answer to two people: myself and God.” 

Siddartha Gautama (Buddha)

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.”

” Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.”

” In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then beleive them to be true.”

“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.”

“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”

” Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

Mother Teresa

“Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.”

“Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.”

“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.”

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”

“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”
