Coffee Time – Daily Quote


Let’s face it. Sometimes life sucks. And 2020 has served us a heaping hot mess of chaos, mayhem, and frightening circumstances for us to manage and overcome. Piled onto stacks of daily challenges, and ordinary tribulations, it is easy to get overwhelmed by frustration and succumb to feeling like no matter what we do, our best efforts are futile. We reel, caught in a whirlwind of an existence we cannot control.

I have a simple strategy for reestablishing my equilibrium — I make a cup of coffee. The process has become a ritual where I build a personal sanctuary, block the rest of the world, and concentrate on me, myself, and I. Nothing intrudes or interrupts my thoughts or the precise steps required. As my coffee brews, my focus revolves on where I stand in the here and now. When I allow my mind to wander, I ask myself, “Where do I go from here?” I imagine my ideal life, and when the image fully forms, I devise one thing that will bring me the smallest step closer to my dream.

The song says we get by with a little help from our friends. These days, coffee is my friend.

How do you create a safe space?


Keep on writing.

      • Ahhh, Thank you Dearest! Yes, best not to drink when at a computer keyboard. And be sure to back up your work every other day! I was lucky. They were able to pull everything off the hard drive and transferr it to the new laptop – early Christmas present. LOL! I was blessed that everything was saved. Thanks so much for your concern and caring, My Dear!!
