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?

Just Making a Plan

….and letting you know.

Today is a simple post to get me motivated and to keep me accountable.

This blog is meant to be, overall, inspiring and encouraging, and I’ve developed a plan and some goals to make sure that it happens on a more consistent basis.

So my goal is to post at least one blog a week for the rest of the year.

What you can look forward to as readers:

Motivation Mondays-we’ve all seen people hashtagging this, and it is definitely a day we could use some motivation, so why not jump on the bandwagon πŸ™‚

Traveling Tuesdays- I am all about traveling tips, goals, and stories. Get pumped about this day!

Wise Words Wednesdays- time for some real talk. Whether this is reflecting on something or someone wise, hearing advice from a guest blogger, or having a honest deep talk, this day should really get you thinking and reflecting.

Throwback Thursdays- obviously a really popular hashtag, but I love it. This day will be dedicated to looking back at some really good blogs or even moments in life/history.

Fun Fridays- Mostly for living our list! Bucketlists, events, and even diys. Honestly, anything could happen on a friday πŸ˜€

A simple post, I know, but I hope you join me on this journey of serious committed ( but always fun πŸ™‚ ) blogging.

Two Options


Are you making progress or excuses?

Here is a quote to get a difference perspective:

“The traveler was active: he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes ‘sight-seeing’.”  –Daniel J. Boorstin

Are you a traveler or a tourist?

What are yo doing with your life? With your goals? Your dreams?

Making progress….

Or excuses?

You can…

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. =]

Would You Follow You?

The simple question is: Would you follow 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 πŸ˜‰ )

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!
