Coffee Thought \ Take Your Time To Learn

Every artist was first an amateur--

Don’t stop doing something because you’re not good at it. No one is great at everything right away; you have to learn through repetition and practice. You can do almost anything you want to do if you can commit to the work and accept and learn from your mistakes.

Coffee Thoughts \ Be Yourself

“I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.” Kurt Cobain

There is nothing more painful than not being who you are. It takes up so much energy to hide oneself and it causes deep suffering within ones soul. So give up on pleasing others and embrace all that you are. Life is too short not to live it your way.

October Horoscope

There is tension this month and that tension is only relieved when you are clear within yourself what is important and what isn’t. What you don’t want to do is listen to everyone else's opinion and not your own. This is a decision before you, make it yourself.

LIBRA (Sept 23- Oct.23): The calm exterior of a Libra is often deceiving, underneath you are tough. Now your strength is being tested as you are asked to change old patterns and embrace new goals – you can’t continue things exactly the way they are. It doesn’t mean giving up anything you care about, it does mean adjustments are required.

SCORPIO (Oct 24- Nov 21): Your faith is being tested, not because things are going badly but because they are working and you’re waiting for the axe to fall. Scorpio’s have trouble believing in good times; when something comes too easily they question it. Accept the support and financial gain that is coming your way with a simple thank you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22- Dec 21): You have been concerned about finances for awhile, but work is there if you want it. You have trouble with authority because you don’t want to be told what to do, but if you want a paycheck get over it, or go into business for yourself. You are meant to be your own boss, even if you can’t do it now, start planning.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22- Jan 19): With Pluto in your sign you’ve been pushed for the last two years to keep growing and expanding, as well as eliminate the things that are holding you back. You will be given more authority now and with it comes opportunity. Honor the small and it will transform into great rewards.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20- Feb 18): Your home life has changed along with your ability to communicate your real feelings. Don’t hold back because you’re afraid of how others will view you. Do you really care? It’s time to clean out the crevices of your mind and throw out any judgments that limit your self-expression or your sense of self-worth.

PISCES (Feb 19- March 20): Your ruler Neptune, has temporarily retrograded back into Aquarius, giving you a chance to remove the intense focus from yourself. You struggle with being both selfless and selfish, when there is a balance. Pinpoint your most deprived feelings and stop waiting for someone else to make them better --heal yourself.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19): October is never easy because the focus is on others, and you seldom feel as if you get enough attention as it is. Stop worrying abut “them” and pay attention to where you want to be in the next ten years. Chances are you’ve changed and you haven’t adjusted your life to fit that change. Stop procrastinating and do it now.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): On the one hand you’re dealing with your anger and on the other hand you’re not. You like the excitement and challenges that are in your life, but when others disagree, you still find yourself frustrated over nothing. Why should they see life through your rose colored glasses and not their own?

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21): The yearning to make changes in your career and goals has been put on hold until next year. Now is the time to work out the changes you’d like to make, rather than leave them to a time in the future when the pressure is on. Meeting problems is always better than avoiding them.

CANCER (June 22- July 22): Your partner or the people you care about are going through a crisis and it does affect you, even if it’s not your problem. It’s that compassion again, you hate to see others suffer. But the truth is you can’t protect them from their choices or their consequences and besides that just keeps them from growing up.

LEO (July 23- August 22): You’ve got a lot of work on your hands and its getting done, but not without a price. Someone is making your life difficult and if you don’t open your mouth and take a stand it will continue to irritate you unnecessarily. Sometimes strength needs strength, and if you’re too accommodating then nothing will change.

VIRGO (August 23-Sept. 22): Either you’re the authority or you’re not in control at all. You know there is such a thing as the middle road, take charge when necessary, let go when it’s not that important. This month requires some standing up for yourself and some letting go. Just decide when voicing your truth is important and things will get better.

Coffee Thoughts \ Imagination Is Real

“Everything you can imagine is real.” Pablo Picasso

Imagination is the first step in manifestation. Thus, when you block your desire to dream and imagine, when you focus too much on the practical side of life, you actually keep your creative side from emerging.

Coffee Thoughts \ Be Committed

There's always a way - if you're committed--Tony Robbins

The belief that there is always a way, is one that I was raised on. My mother never stoped until she got her yes. If that meant speaking to ten more people or fifty more she did it. When she was committed to making something happen, it happened. It taught me such an important lesson in life – never give up, there is always a way.

Coffee Thoughts \ The Courage To Continue

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Winston S. Churchill

Keep going is the message. Don’t let whatever happens stop you -- just learn from it. Courage is the ability to accept your imperfection and know that they do not define you. Only you are in charge of that.

Coffee Thoughts \ The Love You Deserve

“We accept the love we think we deserve.” Stephen Chbosky

It doesn’t matter how much love is around you, it’s the love within you that determines how much you are able to receive. If you don’t believe you deserve love, then you won’t recognize it, even when its pounding on your door.

Coffee Thoughts \ The Importance Of The Small

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” Mother Teresa

The key to happiness is the ability to enjoy the small, honor it in your life, even if you are a big thinker. When only big results brings you joy, you will live a life of stress and unfulfillment. So pay attention to the little things you will find happiness.
