What are the relationships of Life and Coffee?
What is Life ? What is Coffee ?
My definition of Life is a Journey filled with strong emotions, sometimes we go through stages of extreme emotions while at times, we are in a dull state. It is important to know that we must balance all the emotions during our journey. Our ability to remain calm, focused and still able to enjoy the experience even admist difficult trials and challenges, is dependent on our ability to control our emotions.
My definition of Coffee is a stimulant that gives me the extra boost I need to maintain such control of my emotions. Studies have now shown it contains anti-oxidants which is a classification of several organic substances, selenium, including Vit C, E and A. Vitamin A is converted from beta-carotene. It also contains carotenoids, which adds color to many fruits and vegetables. All these, when combined are called antioxidants which are effective in helping to prevent cancer, heart diseases and stroke. Hence, Coffee is the life-blood that really help me to maintain emotional control.
Life without coffee would be unthinkable. Their relationship is such that Life is the Passion and Coffee is the Commitment. What is Passion? What is Commitment?
Passion is your desire to get the job done or to reach your goals. Our desires changes according to our circumstances. When we are met with obstacles or stumbling blocks, we sometimes become frustrated, confused or discouraged. What can prevent this? The answer is simple but not something we do very well. Commitment.
Committment means to accept what you have to do to get the job done or to reach your goals. To do whatever it takes to get the job done - without complaining and whining, in other words, to remain calm, focused and able to enjoy the moment of it.
Therefore, Passion without Commitment first, is not going to be long-lasting.
