Coffee Talk With Moira ~ March 15, 2012

Attitude...It's Important!



While shopping the other day, I came to a sad conclusion.  Too many people have bad attitudes!  What I mean by 'bad-attitudes' is this - people seem to be eager to get upset!  For the life of me, I can't understand the motivation behind it!?!  Who wants to go around feeling upset, angry, slighted, offended, or spiteful? 

We all get upset.  This Broad admits to getting her panties in a bunch once in awhile *blushes*, but being happy is much better.  And then, I realized an underlying issue that I just had to share with you all during Coffee-Talk!  Our attitudes, whether in the grocery store, at the too-long-red-light, during a poor performance, toward our kids as they come in the door from a hard day at school, with the insurance salesman on the telephone, or with the stranger walking down the same side of the street as we are matters more than we can imagine.

Every day, we affect someone - lots of someones.  We wield power, Broads!  Likewise, we are as affected by those we encounter.  I had to re-adjust after returning home from my outing - that bad attitude...it's catching!  If I continued on with that bad-attitude, you can bet that one of my kids would have caught it, in turn passing it along to another brother or a neighborhood friend.  Just as catching is a good attitude. 

Today, take a deep breath and smile.  Cleanse out all that murky nastiness that builds up inside.  Window girl give you bad-attitude when you ordered your morning coffee?  How about tomorrow you give her a dollar tip - or even a five-dollar tip - and tell her that you appreciate being able to stop on hectic mornings and grab your coveted mocha-latte?  Can you imagine how it would brighten her day?  Even more importantly, what will it do for you?

  1. Very true! It's you-get-what-you-give principle, I'd say. We all have bad days, and I admit I sometimes take my frustration on innocent people, and I feel very guilty afterwards. Most of the time I try to remember that it's not the cashier's or the waiter's or whoever's fault that I have a bad day and be polite to them. And then MY day isn't that bad anymore. Great post!

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed Coffee-Talk. We all get worked up at times...I feel guilty afterward, too. But we really can alter someon's entire day by showing a little kindness.

    Plus...I couldn't stop laughing on all the cartoons I found on the subject!

Fantasy Writing, Vampires, And A Dash Of Romance...




The title of this book is somewhat deceiving as the story is told from Michael Allen's perspective. Beginning with his normal young adult life in Chicago and taking the reader through his brutal transition to vampire, this novel continues into the present day where our hero leads a solitary life. Haunted and tortured by the memories surrounding the night he was bitten, Michael maintains a lonely existence, fighting against 'The Beast' and hating the very nature of what he is.

When Michael begins hearing a strange voice and finds himself inexplicably drawn to Kiara, a local young woman with a life almost as strange as his own, a longing takes root deep inside him - a longing that could end in disaster. What Michael doesn't know is that Kiara has secrets of her own, some she doesn't even know she keeps. Together, Michael and Kiara discover the peace of self-acceptance through their unconditional acceptance of one anot…

I've not started this novel yet, but it intrigued me as I browsed my local library's shelves.  The reviews vary widely, so I imagine this will be a 'loved it/hated it' sort of read.  Here's a teaser to get us all started, and I'll post a review when I've finished.  We'll see how this Broad rates this controversial read.

Pg. 1 - 'It is one of the wonders of the twenty-first century that a beautiful, brilliant and broad-shouldered man could reach almost forty …

Uhh....Seriously, we're waiting!!

I know, I know.  You've probably been wondering where we have been.  Well, truth be told, your guess is as good as mine!   Wandering around the corridors of reality and looking--in earnest--for the emergency exit.  Real life has a way of derailing our engines and putting them on a completely different track.  

     During the spring, my kids happened.  From sports to plays, the driving is endless.  During the summer, my kids--again--happened.  Though, in Hartford, Hereford and Hampshire hurricanes hardly ever happen.  (Sorry about that, I had a moment.)  In the fall....do we see the pattern here?  Good.  So, between the kids' activities and school, hubby's work, my work, still remodeling the house, and my newest occupation as college student, I have very little room on my plate for cookies.  But damn-it, I like cookies.  I would love to roll naked in cookies!  Only metaphorically, I have no wish to explain those crumbs at the next gynie visit.  That, ladies, is called thin…
