OTHER THOUGHTS - 

This morning I couldn't stop smiling. One of my favorite things to do in the mornings is check my emails and 30bad. I have to get up at 5 so I have the time to do this, but it is so worth it. Im usually filled with inspiration if I get to read some blogs and see how my friends are doing. 

Even the stressful morning at the cafe was a breeze, smiling and singing away. 

It wasn't until about 10am came, I started to feel the pressure. It had been so busy I hadn't had time for breakfast, just 3 small bananas scoffed in between customers. There's usually a lull between early morning coffees and morning tea coffees but this morning there wasn't, they just kept coming. I started to get overwhelmed at about 10. I had coffees lined up and we were telling regular customers they may have to wait 15 minutes. I almost swore in front of customers, that's when I said, "I'm getting stressed!" Jeanette, one of my lovely staff said, you should sing. God, she knows me too well :) I got her to put on one of my favourite songs and off I went, powering through the coffees, singing my heart out. I felt so much better!

Finally 11am came and the morning tea rush was over. I could sit down and drink some more water, for a few minutes in between making more coffees. I was able to eat my lunch without too many interruptions, but still only managed 17 dates and 3 apples. 

I had to close the cafe early because I had an appointment I had previously booked and couldn't reschedule and Gail, the only other person besides me that can make coffees is on holidays from today till the end of next week. 

So at 2 we closed, I left, rode home, had a quick shower and walked to Sandy's around the corner. 

Even though Sandy is my "beautician" she is more of a friend and sister/mum to me and every time I see her I always feel uplifted and grateful for being in her presence. I will miss seeing her when I stop waxing my legs and few other body parts. I've been going to Sandy since I was 17, so 9 years now. She knows almost everything that's happened in my adult life and was one of the key people that helped me get through my break up with Joel. 

Some of the wise words she passed onto me today...

I'm so amazed everyday when I think about how this day, today is so special, it is going to be like no other day, ever in our lives! That's why we have to enjoy each day, because it's the only one like it. 

We talked about the perfect timing of everything and she told me some stories of things that happened to her that were totally amazing and inspiring. 

I got home about 4 and started cleaning up a bit. I was expecting Kirt, the banana delivery boy, any minute and my house was a mess! Kirt arrived and we sat and ate fruit and talked for about an hour. It was nice.

Now that it's past 7 and I'm going to bed soon, all the details of everything inspiring that happened today have gotten lost in my tired brain. I should start writing in the mornings more, I have so much more energy in the mornings. 

Looking forward to a peaceful weekend, with a nice big sleep in tomorrow morning!

It is so easy to receive the blessings of the day when we are carbed up and the brain is receiving what it needs for the ears to hear the joy. 

 

Yes, remember to eat.  Put your needs first.  I can't sing but music is always part of my life.
