Wasn’t feeling it at the gym or from her

Starbucks products
Yesterday, the antithesis of food and alcoholic drink photos we see on Facebook.


Laptop at Starbucks
The table next to me…what first caught my eye was the unsecure laptop. Yoga mat on right, along with a large Starbucks bag on left (i didn’t peek, but wish i would have).

Then the stickers fascinated me.

When she returned from the restroom, she sat on the other side of the table. More stickers.

Flipped the photo to be able to read the stickers.




Wasn’t feeling it at the gym, but plowed through it.

Felt good when done.

Always does.

On the ride home, stopped at Starbucks for a sandwich (used Apple pay because i carry no wallet), and afterward snapped the photo above.

There was also a Daytimer type organizer next to the laptop, jammed and overflowing with papers. And a notebook, the front cover plastered with inspirational sayings.

Be Bold.

Seize the Day.

You Rock.


Positive Attitude.

Be the Change.


So i asked, “What are you working on?”

To my ear, her comments were as unfocused as her organizer appeared to be disorganized.

i tried, and failed, to have a meaningful conversation.

The  woman – from India, with no car and she carried a yoga mat into Starbucks –  claimed to be a medium, but she left me unimpressed on several levels.

Wasn’t feeling it from her.

The opportunity to try (unsuccessfully) to make her day wasn’t lost on me. Do your best and let the rest go.

Do your best and let the rest go.

Surrender is a great tool.

i use it all the time.
