Life is Like a Cup of Coffee

This may fit better with Wise Words Wednesday, but it is Fun Friday where anything can happen!

I sit here in a local coffee shop with the Oklahoma sky raining once again outside. I’m being productive today: making phone calls, scheduling, planning, and getting work done. Then I take a moment to peruse youtube for some motivation when I found this very fitting video.

Life is like a cup of coffee….

Please check it out before you read past this line.

I have recently graduated college, and I’m looking for the kind of life I want to live. There is pressure on getting a good job, there is pressure of making good money, and there is pressure to make an ideal life for myself.

However, I don’t want to forget how to live a good life and enjoy it. I don’t want to become self-focused, especially to the point that I forget those around me, I forget to enjoy the small moments, or that I forget the most important mission of my life: to love God and bring glory to Him.

I will enjoy the coffee despite the cup it is from.

Will you?

P.S. I’d love to hear your thoughts and what you got from the video.


Good Morning…

Good Morning...

You can do this!

You can…
run that mile
pass that test
nail that speech
rock that job
finish that project
lead that team
reach that goal
help that person
make a difference

You can do this!

P. S. I believe in you. =]

Motivational Music #2

I know I’ve done this before, but lets be honest….music is great! It is definitely an excellent motivator and encourager. Recently, I just feel like I’m coming across a gold mine of great music. These artists are starting to come out with fantastic songs about great subjects: positivity, living your life, reaching for goals. I love it!

Let me just share with you, my current motivational music playlist:

1. On Top of the World by Imagine Dragons

2. Wake Me Up by Avicii

3. Best Day of My Life by American Authors (Absolute favorite)

4. Roar by Katy Perry

5. Story of My Life by One Direction ( I admit it 😉 )

This music motivates me and gets me ready for a good day. I hope you enjoyed my motivational playlist.

I’d love to hear your favorite motivational songs. Please share!
