My Life

Where’s life taking me? I have noooo idea.

My days, get busy with solitary work…then intensely busy with events etc…I feel..like I’m getting tossed back and forth between two completely opposite directions, and two incommensurable extremes..!

Today, needs to be a quiet one.

Nora Jones is really helping.

What is life?! Why is it so confusing?! Why is it so sweet but also…so sad? Why do friends appear? Why do they leave? Why do we leave?

Why is music so magical to some of us?! At least to me…it’s EVERYTHING! It changes everything! Music, never stops after entering my eardrum…rather continues to travel and travel and travel…through every cell..It wraps itself around the oxygen…I breath.

I used to work as a graphic designer, until one day I was tragically and blissfully hit by two colliding meteors! One caused my falling in love with the world of coffee! And the other resulted in me falling out of love with the not so wonderful and nearly suffocating office culture! I left the glamour of the design world, and opened up my little café! Those were the best years of my life! I say ‘were’, because (wait! May be another time! But please do ask me if you ‘must’ know and can’t sleep tonight unless I tell you!) For the past three years, I have been living in a pyramid shape house in a middle of a green forest in the summer; a green forest buried underneath lots - I mean LOTS - of snow in the winter. I used to ‘think I still do ;)’ love the city! With its buzzing energy! I love to travel and seeing different food and coffee scenes...preferably alone! visiting ‘quirky and unusual’ places! I do not love visiting museums, hugely commercialized areas, malls and landmarks! I love old and full of heritage ‘anything’! I also love, to sit in a busy coffeeshop ‘reading quietly’ and not talking! Talking exhausts me most of the time! Watching the world unfold.. and thinking ...never does!

  1. Good morning, Kat … 🙂

    Susan Gregg is a woman I used to get emails from. She is a disciple of Don Miguel Ruiz, who wrote The Four Agreements.

    She says that ‘Life is, and then we tell ourselves a story.’ I’ve thought of that many times.

    I think the words we speak, go on to shape and create our lives.

    Words are perhaps the most powerful force, our most powerful tool.
    Even in very dark times, I have tried to remember to tell myself what I believe, what I know, what I want: life is beautiful.

    The universe is very playful. It gives us what we speak, not only what we seek. It doesn’t matter if it’s ‘good’ or ‘bad.’ It creates for us, whatever we envision, what we feel in our deepest emotions. And we can shift what we envision, shift what we feel, with the words we speak and write and think.

    Life is beautiful. That’s all. Life is beautiful. We don’t need to know where it is taking us. We can trust that it is guiding us, loving us, creating for us as we go. If we trust that it does, then it does. If we live in fear, then we block the natural flow of life. Trust … let go … allow the flow of life to take us and guide us, love us and protect us.

    None of which is to say it’s ‘easy’ … lol … though it can be much easier than we might make it.

    Life is beautiful. I say it to myself, I write it, I feel it, I know it. That’s all. And I trust that wherever I am going, I am somehow being of service.
    The beauty of life surrounds us. I think that when we keep seeing the beauty, then more beauty comes to us.

    Somehow, perhaps above all, it seems important that we simply like who we are. That’s all. Just like who we are, just as we like how other people are — or we might not like who other people are. And somehow, that is a reflection of how we feel about ourselves, never about the other.

    Let’s just like ourselves. A simple, beautiful, childlike liking. I like me. I like you. It’s so much nicer and easier that way. Let’s make life easier, and nicer, and beautiful. Let’s just keep calling it beautiful, no matter what!

    So many simple cues, telltale signs, bellwethers.

    Life is beautiful, Kat. You are beautiful. No ‘but’s’ about it … 🙂

    1. Life is certainly interesting these days Michael! I always admire your optimism and how you view life! I can’t say I share that sunny outlook all the time. I wish I did. I did a few events lately, and one particular one, brought me back to my shop days. I was ‘alive’ behind the espresso bar. But all it took, is a word from a human or a look that my sensitive nature perceived as ‘judgment’, and in my mind, I spiralled down the next day for a couple hours.

      I pep talk ppl to prepare them for taking on a certain task they maybe apprehensive abt or a new project etc…I’m good at making them feel confident and supported. I lay it out very clear for them. All the outcomes. Then how does it make sense, that I can’t see logic when ‘I’ feel anxious or nervous about a certain upcoming project or a certain event!? In my mind, when I’m struggling with my anxiety, I start wondering ‘where’s that person who could pep talk me into sanity right now?!’ I never find them.

      Wishing you a great day Michael

  2. Hey coffee lady.
    Music is a balm of sorts…does anyone use that word anymore?
    And why do friends pop in for the quick run down fill up an already full cup, tip it over and leave the mess? Couldn’t tell ya. Maybe they’re the electrons of us just looking to stick to a *proton for a second. *Something stationary and reliable.
    Hope your morning sees something positive.
    CHeeRs!
