Monday, 2/9/09 - "STAR WORDS"


This came off my coffee cup from Starbucks yesterday. On it was written something a Starbucks customer from New York City, Anne Morriss, said and it made it's way onto one of their cups - as a "The Way I see It".

"The Way I see It #76"
"The irony of commitment is that it's deeply liberating - in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life."

I just added (for myself) "...the irony of commitment (
to the 12 steps) is that....". Wonder if she's one of us?
It doesn't matter.
Her thoughts spoke to me in a big way.

I pass them on.

So it's not really the coffee, it's the "sayings" on the cups!

Funny, I always drank the coffee, didn't know there were special writings on the cup.

Next time I'll look. I hope the font is not so large on the cup, though! (Someone had to comment on that. "It Had To Be Me.")

Love ya, Girl of Prayer,
Hubby, Steve E.

I like that. It is a freeing act to commit. I think about commitment in relationships. And with commitment comes trust.

That's too cool, PG. I never get Starbucks coffee cups, except the clear ones when I have an iced vanilla latte while I'm there buying my Sumatran beans...

I like the concept of commitment as freeing...
