Coffee and Tunes

This morning’s coffee: Community Coffee Dark Roast (as per the norm).

This morning’s companion: John (as per the norm and I wouldn’t have it any other way)

This morning’s tunes: one long chill mix. I hope you really enjoy it and I hope it plays better for you than it is doing for me. This is another reason we’re dropping our home internet on Friday.

Now Listening To…

As I went through this week, so many thoughts about myself, my attitude, my perception of things around me, swirled around in my head. One thought popped up and stuck with me. We recently felt it was the best thing to move out of the church we were attending and search for another. We had (and still have) nothing against any of the people attending the church while we were there. But it was a church I grew up in. I’ve always been the type of person to avoid confrontations at all costs. While my non-combative, introverted behavior was good for that purpose, it was bad for other reasons. I realized this week that my behavior habits were also why I couldn’t really function at my maximum potential in this congregation. I always felt like I needed to be better, do better. And this wasn’t because of the people there. It was because of my own perception. I always seemed to revert to “children should be seen and not heard” when I walked through those doors. So now I have a reason for why I felt that way, a tangible, clearly worded reason. And I guess I needed that in order to move on. I don’t know for certain. All I know is I need to keep moving forward, keep growing, keep learning, keep reaching for my goals and dreams, keep reaching towards that maximum potential that I know is inside me. Sorry to get so wordy on a somewhat heavy topic. On with the tunes!

And here’s today’s long mix…

Be Steady and Well-Organized

“Be steady and well-organized in your life so that you can be fierce and original in your work.” ~ Gustave Flaubert

Thanks to Goodreads for this great quote. It went along really well with my business blog post and I think it’s great for any person to practice at home, too.

And I’ve been on a chillstep and dubstep kick lately. It seems the rhythm of these types of songs both soothes and motivates. And since I don’t have to focus so much on the lyrics, there’s that much more of my brain focused on the task at hand. Here’s a dubstep mix I found today. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
