Sippin' today's cup from...

The front porch of a log cabin nestled in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.
I've had plenty of time to think lately about what I want to do with my life. I know, I know,  I'm 33, how can I not know that already? That's where today's quote comes from. Most of my life I was doing what everyone thought I should be. I went to college, I got a degree and then I got a job. Then I got another job and then another one.

Now here I am in Nashville finally settling into my life wondering how I got here. A wannabe actress from New York who spent most of her post-college career at a desk. Sometimes I think it's too late to be who I want to be, but not today. Today, it is not too late. Today, it is right on time. So for those of you who are right there with me, this is for you. Kick those expectations to the curb and do what makes you happy. There's no better day to start than today.

Today's Quote

Sometimes the world has expectations for us. It tries to tell us what we’re supposed to do and who we’re supposed to be. We get so caught up trying to fit into that mold that we lose sight of what’s important.

The only thing that we’re supposed to do is whatever makes us happy. The only thing we need to be is ourselves.

Never conform to someone else’s idea of you. Stay true to yourself, to your ambitions and your goals. Do that and everything else will fall into place just the way it’s supposed to.
What will you do today to get to where you want to be tomorrow?
Set a goal, make a plan, take action!
Coming Up: Next week I'll be sipping some kind of wonderful and talking about taking risks. From where is still a mystery, so tune in next week to find out!
Oh and I'd LOVE to know what you thought of your very first dose of Quotes and Coffee, so be sure to head on over and leave a comment on my latest blog post!
