In general, I highlighted the unfortunate order mix-up at Starbucks where I had ordered my usual White Chocolate Mocha, got a Mocha (which couldn’t taste MORE different), but due to the tension in the environment, the fact there appeared to be a new employee who was struggling to get into the swing of things, and the long line/wait I was already apart of — I opted to just move on and be thankful for a hot beverage.
It may seem a bit prima donna, but it truly is all about the little things!
Karma Out – Coming “Full Circle”:
Less than 24 hours later, I placed my morning coffee drink at the same Starbucks. They recognized me and said “you waited a long time yesterday, this drink is on us!”
Patience and kindness IS rewarded, friends. We tend to miss the opportunities all too often because of the latency involved. Be good because it makes sense to be good, but also know that things DO indeed come full-circle.
I am now enjoying, and am thankful for, another warm beverage this morning…
But this time it was my favorite kind, it was free, and it tastes like magic.
Life is not a race, it is a journey that we travel at our own pace.
This post is about overcoming the ‘battle within’, the lyrics in this song were originally dedicated to a couple individuals that I thought needed it the most at the time — but by no coincidence, it ended up summarizing the story of all those ‘trying to find their way’, and I learned a lot about myself in the process…In fact, the last line of the second verse ultimately inspired the motto for this blog. 🙂
As we each travel down separate lanes on the same highway of life, “Getting up Now” is about our individual roads to redemption, a verse for each phase:
Life’s tough & we self-destruct
Know thyself, the decision to be a victim or victor
Awakening to the truth of life & happiness
We tumble and fall… but we’re getting up now!
We stumble and stall… but we’re getting up now!
We set ourselves up, just to let ourselves down;
But we’re NOT letting up; we’re getting up right now!
I’d like to thank Charles for the first contribution, comment and commitment to “loopholes on life”! While I only began this blog 3 days ago ‘physically’ (Sunday night, 8/19), I’ve been building toward it for the last two and a half years, when I had my first “click” (I’ll explain what exactly I mean by that at some point, for now, think of ‘clicks’ as meaningful milestones for the journey of truth-seekers & ‘game’-changers… or… perhaps more simply put, think of them as true blue epiphanies).
For today’s blog post I’d like to expound on some sage points he alluded to in his post:
I stumbled across this blog. I have been asking a lot of questions lately and looking for answers in places which they would make sense to be found. However, I have found only lies and deceptions that laid the ground work for building societies of followers and none of free thinkers.
A great man once said, “There is not a truth existing which I fear… or would wish unknown to the whole world.” I feel you are liberator of those truths.
I look forward to reading and sharing thoughts on your blog, and to helping make the world a better and more informed place.
