Welcome to our weekly coffee share session. I am always looking forward to seeing you. Come on in, the coffee is hot and fresh, but I also got tea, and some vegan cranberry chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, if you want some. Help yourself.
If you were here with me I would greet you with a smile, and tell you how grateful I am to have a quiet home at the moment. Half of the family is doing their own thing, so the noise level is way down. My head is grateful too, as I need space to think, quiet company and one on one conversations, rather than music or television in the background. Makes it easier to focus on what is important. You would probably notice my gratitude journal on my table. Do you write in a gratitude journal on a regular basis? Today I mentioned my family, the cool breezes of the last few days, the great lunch I had yesterday with my hubby, and of course, coffee.
If you were here with me, I would ask you if you are working on your dreams and goals, and how you stay motivated. Is it easy for you to stay on track with your goals, or do you have to drag yourself to take the necessary steps? If you are dragging, I would ask you what your reasons behind your goals are. A great why helps to pull you along, even when the day is tough.
What is your biggest, most outrages dream? I would share it with you – owning a home in Hollywood Hills is mine – and hope you would share your dream with me. No dreams are too big, too outrageous if you are willing to work for them. I am. Are you? What are you doing right now to make them happen?
As you can tell, I love helping others reach their goals and dreams. A part of me is always going to be a motivational life coach, even if I have given up my practice a few years ago (it has been that long already? Wow, time flies when you’re having fun). Maybe that is the reason why I love helping other designers, creatives and writers succeed. It’s my thing, I guess.
What are you currently reading? Are you reading something that can help you along in your career, or business? Gary Vaynerchuck’s Crush It is currently on my Kindle. I am a fan of Gary’s videos, if you have not heard about him, I suggest you check him out. Very motivational.
I am glad you stopped by and we had a chance to talk. If you get a moment, check out all of the other participants of the Weekend Coffee Share and those who post as a part of the Celebrate The Small Things Blog hop. They would appreciate your visit.
See you next week – oh, but please feel free to drop by anytime. I always have something to share!
And I was wondering where your gratitude post went. Clever, you combined them. Brilliant as usual. Coffee. No, let me rephrase: Coooooffeeeeee… *in a zombie voice* 65% of my blood is made of caffeine. I am running low right now (what do they say about planes running on fumes?) but it’s 8 pm here so coffee is not recommended if I want to sleep later. Glad things are quiet and glad everything is going better Claudia. Have a beautiful and as care-free as possible week ahead.
hehe, thanks Aura, you are the best. Oh heck, who needs sleep, have that cup of coffee, lol – strangely enough, caffeine never affected me, so I can drink a cup at midnight and go to bed a few minutes later with no problem. I am weird like that. hehe. Blessings!
Enjoy your quiet home moment, I can appreciate just how hard they are to come by!
My biggest dream would have to be owning a Marina on Lake St. Clair.
Thank you for the coffee, see you next week!
oh that sounds wonderful! What a beautiful dream you have. Thank you for stopping by – see you next week!
Hope you got to enjoy having a quiet house for a while!
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about goals and dreams and motivations lately. These are some good questions as food-for-thought. 🙂
glad you liked the questions – the quiet lasted just long enough to get some writing done, which is cool. Thank you for stopping by, Diana – blessings!
Sometimes, I get excited about something, then fearful, then it wanes. Trying to find ways to push through when motivation lacks for that reason. Hmmmmm. Fear is a bugger! Have a great week!
Fear can absolutely be a barrier. The origin of the fear will determine how to overcome it. Ever thought about where they came from?
I have. And I think I know. But knowing still doesn’t keep me from doing sometimes. Jumping/risk taking can be hard. I’m trying, though!
I know you are, and I am rooting for you! Drop me a line, anytime you need some encouragement, hon.
Aw! That’s so nice! Thank you. I’ll remember that.
Enjoy the peace and quiet. It’s nice to have silence (no TV, music, etc.) from time to time. Thank you for the coffee and the thought-provoking questions. I have a gratitude journal, too. It keeps me grounded and focused on the positives in life. 🙂
Thank you for stopping by, Robin – gratitude journals are simply the best! Blessings!
You know how to ask big questions, Claudia 🙂 Thank you for this thought-provoking post. I’ll need to re-read your post and do a bit of visioning soon.
thank you for reading, dear Gulara. I am glad you found it interesting. Have a wonderful week!
