At present moment, the weekend half over, I sit and ponder a thought that hit me earlier today.
It started with a cup of coffee.
I was having a morning coffee with a friend and suddenly, she said “Wow, that cup went fast.”
And that is when I realized she was drinking from a smaller cup than usual.
So of course, the cup went fast!
But then I was thinking, as thinkers often do, of other sudden epiphanies .. and realized .. the same is true in life.
Grab a small cup, get a small cup. Choose a larger cup and fill it up, and perhaps that will hit the spot.
When we dream of things we’d like to see come to fruition in our lives, I wonder if too often, we inadvertently grab the smaller cup.
The quick cup. The safe cup.
The routine cup.
The same as yesterday and so forth.
A hair salon.
I was getting a haircut one day and a friend passed by and of course as you do, greet one another and hey how are you.
He asked me about my blog. And what about the YouTube channel.
I was speechless and found myself suddenly trying to figure out where it all went. Time has passed.
Did I grab the small cup?
I so love the smell of newsrooms.
I am so grateful that I have grabbed the larger cup and have made room to fill it up with my dreams. Freelance full-time, write my next several books, get busy on creating a YouTube channel.
This friend does not know, but running into him changed the course of my life for the better. My creativity has returned and somehow, I have found my purpose again.
So there. A coffee cup. A haircut. And a newsroom.
What does your dream look like, and what are you going to do to bring it to pass? Everyone has a purpose in life.
Tomorrow, let’s talk about plans.
