There is nothing so delightful, or can compete, with that first sip of a beautifully prepared coffee.  We write sonnets to love, swoon at Pinterest-worthy decor, but Coffee……..ahhhhhhhhhh.

Whether served with beignets, or a view of a beautiful landscape, that first thought causes us to pause. It is a work of art and we have created landmarks dedicated to the gift of the bean.  We stop where we are standing, or prepare a soothing environment before we take that first drink.  The pause that refreshes is that moment we savor the depth, boldness, and creamy infusion of caffeine and milky goodness.  For purists, it is a paragon of taste to be debated.

Each coffee break is a moment to recall that we are in charge of our destiny – at least for the time it takes to finish that first cup.

We are on the precipice of a great and glorious future….. or so many commencement addresses have begun, or enticements to war.  At the start of a new job or a major life change, we stand at the steep edge of one position to make a great leap into another and untried experience.

Change can be good, yet many of us have to be dragged, kicking and screaming, to leave a bad situation to head into a new unknown.  Stepping out of a comfort zone is scary even when it is good for us.  We do stay in situations that are unhealthy, unproductive, and stagnant.  Some of our best skills and inherent traits go unused because they are undervalued or underexposed.

Yet, it is scary to step off that ledge into the vast abyss of doubt, fear, anxiety, and start anew. By nature, we are optimistic that things will work out, or money will arrive, or our health will hold out, or untested faith that all will occur rightly, as it should.

Taking chances, or choosing something new in our life, tests our endurance mentally and physically.  Despite the fear, there are the brave few who leap ~ precariously, judiciously, respectfully, and forcefully, to create change.  Embracing achievement and expanding our horizons means taking that first step.  But, it can be the start of something incredible and no matter how big, starts with that first shaky step to land on the other side of optimism, and simply begin…
