Sacred Coffee

Day off. Treated myself to a grande cafè latte at Starbucks. 

There were these two older women sitting at a table behind me, and two 12 year old girls at my right. It felt like if I was at the middle point of a life line. No music was playing, so I fully enjoyed my coffee while overhearing the conversations.


Here's what I've learned:

1- I couldn't get a thing of what was going on behind me because the ladies would not stop giggling. The walker next to them was no sign of them slowing down or giving up on sharing a good time and making the best out of it;

2- Being 12 is really complicated. I had forgotten about the hair, and the other girls, and the boys, and the exams, and the parents, and the teachers, school in general, rules in particular, and how you want so much to fit in and how badly you seek validation when you're younger;

3- You may unawarely make people smile and warm their hearts by the simple act of laughing - the ladies made it so for me - so keep on doing it;

4- Having a friend to go out and laugh hard with or confide in when everything seems to be wrong is precious, no matter how old you are;

5- Keep it simple and choose wisely who you surround yourself with.

Best coffee I've had in a long, long time:) Sacred. Grateful.

What are you grateful for today?

Take care,

Patricia

End of another year

Can you believe we are at the end of another year already?

How was 2013 for you? For those close to you? Did you achieve any of that stuff you committed to 12 months ago?

How did you feel most of the time during 2013? Was it good?

I'm not doing the "new year's resolutions" thing this year. Nope. In 2014, I want to fully enjoy the ride and I want to feel it every step of the way. I want to feel joy and excitement and passion and sexiness and love and gratefulness... even if a project doesn't make the cut or I don't get to tick it off "the" list.

How good is it if it somehow felt like shit making it happen? 

Doesn't mean I won't make the efforts or focus or work my butt out. It simply means I will be more self conscious of what I put out, what I put in and of what truly light my fire.

Does this resonate with you? Now tell me, how do you want to feel in 2014?

Take care,

Patricia
