JUST DO IT!!!
I’ve been talking with one of my good friends about motivation to get out of our usual circles of life. So I put a handful of dreams/goals on a list, tore them up and put them in a hat. Prayed and picked one, now I have a goal to reach and it gives me direction. Whats more intereting is this particular dream to move to Oregon has been pulling at me and I don’t know why. I feel there is somthing for me there…we’ll see!!!
JUST DO IT!!!
My younger sister is helping me with my battle bysending me reminders each day to keep me strong. They actually are pretty effective!
We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter:
‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.
I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”
My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks
‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’
It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

I just saw this and thought it would be incredible to share this so maybe it could catch on wherever you may live
Well now I’m crying, this is great.
I am gonna try to do this.
One of the most difficult things I can’t seem to do. Quit smoking and daily Caffine intake. I’d like to request prayers from those who are willing. Im going to go for it, starting 3pm PST. God be with me and give me strength to push past this and break the grasp it has on me and my life. Amen!
Okay so now that I know I am not going anywhere for a while unless God says so I figured it would be smart to start working towards something for my here and now. First few orders are: Gym Membership, Making my Room a Home! :)
I currently live with my dad, and I am never home, always doing around from place to place so eventually I will move out when I find a job that makes me enough and where I wont have to commute until then I will make my little room a bit more cozy. I have an old hotel mattress on the floor. I think I need a bed that’s raised off the ground with like a frame and all that! I need a good nights sleep, a place and a thing to call my own. So I am going to renovate my room a little bit. Thought about painting it but I really hate painting so i think I’ll use the color on there now and work with it! hahaha
I don’t go to the gym, its simple why. I don’t take the time to and I don’t know how to use the machines to get the sort of results I want. My friend has told me shell get me a free pass to her gym and shed show me the ropes. If I think its worth while my next step will be to get a membership and start taking some classes with her. I’m hoping this will help motivate me to go on my own when I have the time. :)
So those are what I am starting with, Once that’s done well see what comes up next!
I’ve been putting on pause my present life in hope of preparing for my future. You can’t see the end of a movie if your stuck on pause right!? Wow…Things I thought I wanted I still want, but I just had what I’d call a realization and understanding that I never thought I’d be okay with. Why not actually enjoy and make what I got the way I want it while living with just having a future in mind. Why have I been so focused on creating my own future when it’s already decided through God. Oh my goodness, I don’t think words can describe what I am feeling right now. My heart is pounding in my chest and I think I might actually cry tears of happiness. Light headed a little, epiphany after epiphany in a matter of minutes! Is this what I have been praying for!? Praise God for direction and understanding! Hallelujah!
…Please Lord, do not let this fade!
An actual goal!
Because of recent going ons in my life and gathering all advice given in the past to present, I’ve finally set a goal which includes the 3 things I am always addressing in my thoughts: health, travel, and learning a musical instrument!
1 year goal to work my ass off to get healthy and save money while researching and planning a 1 year trek across the USA. At the end if one year I will take off for that trip and teach myself how to play music when I have downtime.
This makes since to me.
