My boyfriend thinks I have a coffee addiction. I always come back by saying that it’s not so bad, I only have one cup per day. The problem is that I depend on that one cup of coffee. If I don’t have it –I’m a sleepy mess the entire day.
I ran out of my regular coffee, so I tried the DD Hazelnut coffee again. I should have known better, buying that weak flavored coffee. It is usually the milder blend when it’s flavored. I do know, I was a supervisor with UCF Dining Services and we had a coffee & latte bar in the library. Coolest thing ever! I digress.
My coffee addiction has turned into someone suggesting that I should try Cuban Coffee. That’s when you know that you have outgrown the jolt of caffeine that people normally get.
My question is–having one cup per day and not having the jittery feeling is not so bad, right? What is bad is that I need that one cup to get through my day, let alone mornings. I really would be a spacey mess without it.
So much has been going on in my life lately. I feel like as 2012 came along, something jolted within me to start sh*t up. I have always had the FILDI within me (F*ck It Let’s Do It), but I have always had fear or lack of true confidence prevent me from pushing my limits all the way. I realized that I’ve been pushing myself in the wrong way. I’ve been a workaholic and haven’t fueled it to making a better life for myself. I’ve continued with the 9-5 and have been frustrated a lot because I would stay mum and not express fully what my concerns were to the right people. At this point, it’s time to take control of my destiny and just chase that happy. I wrote a bucket list 6 years ago in hopes of that, but somehow it got tucked away in a notebook near the bottom of my stack.
I can’t say enough how much Live in Wonder and “The Journey” has changed my outlook. I’ve always been a go-getter, a leader in some capacity, or really a dreamer. I embraced the dreamer in me and with the help of finally seeing that it’s not my purpose I should be looking for, it’s my passion. I started to speak my possibility into the world and the universe responded well.
Case in point. I wrote a post yesterday about wanting to see more art, and there I stand at ArtServe just in awe. Graffiti rooms, installations, fashion shows, and even free Tijuana Flats stared me in the face. Tatiana Casteneda, congrats on getting your art featured too, that’s a huge accomplishment!
I can just feel it that there’s a lot to take in, but also a lot ahead of me. Karla Campos and I are planning seminar series on teaching social media. The first one is scheduled for July 26th. To get the news on that, sign up at South Florida Professionals Meetup Group. We’ll be sending out an announcement soon, which may even include deeply discounted salsa lessons…Wink!
I haven’t even said the half of what I have planned. All will be revealed when the time is right. Until then, I have a little giveaway for you all.
Until Monday July 16th at 11:59PM, you’ll have the chance to win a $10 “You’re Awesome” Staples gift card. I like running giveaways since I do them for clients, so why not have a little fun myself?
Here are the rules:
Since my blog post titles are either songs or lyrics, this is your chance to guess this one.
-Enter to win by leaving a comment here on my blog with your answer of what artist this song or lyric is from.
-Pick a number between 1-100 and I will randomly choose the winner closest to the number I decided upon. There probably will be duplicate answers so I want to make it fair.
Good luck and keep commenting
