Friday Coffee Break

It’s a windy Friday afternoon here in Scotland. I’m sitting in my office overlooking the hills and preparing for my client sessions later today. Through my windows I can see the trees and wind embrace fiercely as the sunshine kisses the top of the hills through fluffy white clouds.

Seeing the power of Mother Nature reminds me of the similar power each of us have inside, the power of our minds. It is estimated that every day we have somewhere in the region of 70,000 thoughts. Some of those thousands of thoughts occupy much of our time. Depending on the type of thought they create feelings and emotions that bring either pain or pleasure.

Thoughts are simply thoughts. Our thoughts do not become real until we give them attention. Then our thoughts become feelings and emotions. For example, the everyday act of making a cup of tea or coffee. What happens if you never add water to your cup? Or press the button on the coffee machine? Your drink never comes to life, it never brews, and you never experience its taste. This is the same with your thoughts. If you don’t give them attention, they will pass by. 

Remember, you are the creator of your own feeling, your own emotions. Become your own Master Barista.

Have a wonderful weekend  ~ David
