Life is way too short to be a grump.

October 10th - There is nothing like my morning coffee

For every minute you spend angry , you lose 60 seconds of happiness.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Don’t let one moment or person ruin your day.  Don’t let your life be determined by one person or one moment, Take control of what you can, and that is your attitude.  

As much as it is human nature to get angry or upset, we can't let those feelings and emotions consume us.  We are a lot stronger than that.  We need to rise above it and realize that our own happiness depends on us.When we choose to let go of that anger, we are choosing a happier life. Say a payer for patience and positivity, it can make a world of difference. 

Truth is that I’m a person that you cannot talk to until after I’ve had my morning coffee.  When we were first married DDH ask my mom what was wrong with me in the mornings.  She told him just to be quiet and let me have my coffee first.  I’m still much the same way.  Nothing much happens before I have my morning coffee . Now I live by myself but have to say, he learned the lesson well and we never had a grumpy start to the day after that .

We want to do a lot of stuff, were not in great shape.  We didnt get a good nights sleep.  Were a little depressed.  Coffe solves all these problems in one delightful little cup.

And if we could ALL remember that we would have a better day and world. You hit it out of the park with that.

I like that thought about 60 seconds of anger you lose a minute of happiness. That is something to ponder over! I like my morning coffee with just a dash of French vanilla creamer in it. A good way to start the day!

I think when you get mad at others and talk back - they have control of you - you do not have control of yourself.

What a cute story about your mother and DDH! I'm one of those obnoxious morning people who sometimes forgets to respect other's acclimating to the new day. Thank goodness for good coffee!
