Why Coffee Blog

I’ve received occasional emails in the past in reference to why my blog is called a coffee blog. 3 years ago I began my coffee blog via Dark Mantis Enterprises. I do believe that I did explain why I call my blog the coffee blog. Not to sound snobbish or persnickety as some may say, but let me reiterate why my blogs are called coffee blogs. In Jeanette’s world I awake sometimes from a dream or just from a hard sleep with various thoughts on my mind. Most mornings I reflect on the day before or something that occurred the night before I lay my head to rest. Being that I’m a writer, my mind is always racing. My blogs are often created early in the morning while I’m indulging in a great cup of Joe. This is how my coffee blog began because I was drinking a good cup of java and when I say good I mean the bomb coffee on a Saturday morning and it took control of my brain and quick fingers and that’s how that blog started. Most people need that cup of java in the morning; I do also. That’s why my blog is called “coffee blog” because I’m sipping and then typing to my heart’s content. Typing and sipping is a beautiful thing; try it sometime. I pause occasionally taking a sip of my freshly ground roasted coffee when I type out my blogs. Although my post may not appear until later that afternoon, doesn’t mean that the thought happened at that particular time. My blogs occur during my coffee time. It’s like a thinking mechanism. Okay you may say what if you had a coffee break during the afternoon or evening? Then I may do a blog then too, but for the most part, I try not to do coffee later in the day. It really interrupts your resting period. I already have a hard time putting this beauty down every night as it is. With that being said, what works for you doesn’t necessarily works for the next person. Think about it.

Getting back to life

It has been a months since I’ve last posted a blog. I’ve been so caught up with depression and the death of my father that I’ve basically cut myself off from my best buddy in the world; my lap top. This is the second death that took place that was very close to me. Exactly 2 years and 2 weeks ago, my brother was killed in a car accident. On Tuesday, August 7th 2012 I watched my father take his last breath. I hated to see my father die, but it pained me to see him suffer daily. I will never forget the day I saw him take his last breath. I can literally visualize this every single day. As much as I’m told that I should not have any regrets because I was there for him as much as possible, I still feel it wasn’t enough. I miss seeing his face and I miss hearing him complain. I miss him from calling me by the pet name that he gave me when I was a child. I miss the expression on his face. I miss every aspect of my father and hate that I was born into a world to experience this journey we must all take. Mankind takes for granite the small things. I try to cherish every single moment in life that I have because I don’t know when or where I will take my last breath. I will definitely say this; his death taught some things I need to do. It taught me to live and laugh as much as I can and to savor every single second that I have with my life. It taught me not to waste my time on foolishness or being angry. It took me a month and two weeks to start back with my buddy. I barely check my emails or even nurture my imaginary children; my novels that I’ve written. I spend the bulk of my time with my mother and family because every single moment is very crucial. Death is very much fresh on my mind and I still can’t fathom that the best man and the first man that I ever loved with my whole heart is gone. I think what hurts me the most is that I will never see his face again. This is an experience I will never forget because on most days I feel like something is missing that I can’t get back or restore. Death is very personal. When you lose someone that is close, part of your essence dies too. Think about it.

End of the World – Sign of the Time

I looked at the temperature for the day and noticed that it’s extremely warm for this time of year; 91 degrees to be exact. As I look around and listen to the mummers of people I hear them say, “It’s the sign of the time and the end of the world”. The world ends for someone every single day. When you take your last breath it will be the end of your world here on this place we call earth. And besides; who would really want to stay in this world for eternity?

I’ve been noticing how rude, inconsiderate and racist people have become; every second, minute and hour of the day. People don’t and won’t accept a mere apology. People won’t say excuse me and or people are just hateful and racists. It almost makes you hate to be around people at any given time; at least that’s how I feel.

There is so much unnecessary tension in the air for no apparent reason; people hating people of color are the ones that I truly despise. No matter what is said and done, racism will remain until people wake up and say that enough is enough, but that will never happen. It makes me look forward to my end of to this world because this world is far beyond its reach of peace and harmony. If there is such a thing of reincarnation I would like to pass up that opportunity. I do not wish to come back to this place of sorrow, deceit, poverty stricken world of racism.

It’s amazing that we can send a man to the moon, turn a mobile phone into a miniature computer, or perform a face transplant, but hate a person that you had never been met before due to the color of his or her skin. We can’t change this. My only hope and thought is to live long enough to see my children grow and be capable of taking care of themselves while I’m gone. I sincerely apologize to them daily for being foolish enough to bring them into this ill-gotten world of hatred. This world this creator created is already gone to hell.

The sign of times it may seem, but the end of your time it’s not until you take your last breath.
Think about it.

Every Friday everyone seems to perk up full of cheer or is it just my imagination? Maybe it’s because it’s the end of the week and people are ready to shut it down from the office or just to relax, relate and release. Maybe it’s because it’s pay day and or maybe it’s because it’s the end of the week and all is fair and it’s party time!

I’ve been thinking about Fridays and the messages I receive such as “happy Friday” or “It’s finally Friday and I can relax!” Have the other days of the week become so depressing that we look forward to Fridays? It is sad that we live in a world that Monday through Thursday is a drab and depressing. Perhaps we need to look at our lives and see what we can do to make it better. Perhaps we need to do things a little differently each day instead of utilizing the same routine. I’m sure there are some of us that are happy everyday of the week as we all should be, but often that’s not reality.

I’ve decided that I’m going to make each and every day like a Friday because Life can be very short or disappointing. I begin to reflect on what I’ve learned; attitude of gratitude. I begin to reflect on all the things I’m grateful and thankful for as we should do according to Feng Shui. I need to literally apply this to all my days and perhaps treat every day as Friday; this may keep me bliss in this miserable world of chaos.

Think about it.

Everyone Fears Something

Everyone fears something; no matter how much we deny, we have a fear. We fear drowning, poison, airplanes, travel, accidents, becoming older and etcetera. It could be anything, but most of all we fear death. Although we know this is something that is inevitable; maybe it’s the thought of how you may die that’s fearful. No matter, which way fate chooses for one to die, this is a task all must fulfill.

I do believe that what we fear is the unknown of death. We fear that our mortal existence will cease and we will be forgotten and I must say most of all…we fear that there is no afterlife. Truly no one actually knows if there is an afterlife. We are only going on what we’re told. No one ever came back from the dead and explicated what exactly happens when you enter the tunnel of eternal darkness; I believe this is what humans/mankind fear because it is the unknown. We’re going on religious beliefs – in hopes that our souls will live on eternally.

Most people have this religious belief that when it’s all said and done, we will see the almighty beholder who created the heavens, the hell and universe. But what if this is not what occurs? What if we are just laid to rest and that is the end of our existence? And…If we are to be reincarnated, we would not return to who we were before so therefore our mortal self will no longer exist as it was before. All memory of who we were will be erased. So death is truly the end of who you were. What do you think? Does it make since to you? Elaborate on this thought for a while before you explicate an answer.

Think about it

The Birthday of MLK

Today is the observance for the late Martin Luther King Junior. Yesterday was actually the birthday of Martin Luther King Junior. I was asked if I would take this day, Monday January 16th 2012 off in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. No. I spent the actual day in observance of Martin Luther King Junior. I didn’t go out, I didn’t spend money and I pulled out information in relation to his speech, the march on Washington and the civil rights movement to remind me of how it was during the 50’s and 60’s and how it should be today.

I begin to reflect on what took place and compare to how we should have overcame by now and receive the respect and recognition we deserve as people of color. I see some change, but not much. We need to start making strides. Of course we have an African American President and Black first Lady and sure we have access to walking down the street and possibly go anywhere we please, but we’re still not economically inclined. We spend the most money in America, but we never invest in our community.

Our society actually has the wrong idea of the civil rights movement and what it represents. Do you know the purpose the Late Martin Luther King Junior and message he was attempting to convey? Why do you celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King Junior? Do you only take it off just to jump on the band wagon or do you actually celebrate what this Martyr projected and wanted for this world?

I have a 5 ½ year son and I want him to know why Martin Luther King Junior existed and his reasons for civil rights and why we celebrate his birthday. I celebrate through by commemorating what he has done; I don’t buy or sell on that day. I treat it like a holiday, which we all should. We should shut it down and say thanks to this man that gave his life for the equality of man and women who were discriminated against during that period of time and still to this present day.

Every community and ethnic group cherishes their people of importance. It’s time that the Black people born in American need to take a stand and do the same. If you are celebrating his day of birth, treat it like a real holiday, which it is.

Think about it.

Welcome 2012

We are now in the official first week of the New Year now what? What do you do? The first day of the New Year has come and gone and now you’re left with what you are going to do now. If you made a New Year’s resolution, forget about it. Just go with the flow because more than likely you’re not going to follow through. It’s easy to say what you’re going to do, but to actually do it is something different.

As I enter the chat sessions and groups on FB, I’ve noticed how everyone is basically talking the same talk as last year. Does that mean that we’re subject to change as a people? Not really because we’re not putting our best foot forward and walking the walk. We keep making the same statements and talking about the same subject for example: Relationships, sexy pictures, sex and bashing of the opposite sex.

Let’s take 5. Being in a relationship or trying to establish a relationship is not really that hard. If you’re a selfish individual its simple; remain what you are, which is alone. If you’re not willing to compromise it’s best to be by yourself! If you’re with someone that is getting on your nerve, discuss with that person the issues at hand and why he or she is getting on your nerve. If you’re still not happy, leave!

Sex and sexy pictures is another thing all together. Sex is something that only the individual can talk about with his or her sex partner. I don’t discuss that topic because that is a never ending story that people will not ever seem to agree on. No matter what someone is not ever going to be satisfied. As for a sexy picture that is similar to the saying “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. What may look sexy to you may not be sexy to the next person so why judge?

This is 2012 and we should be thinking about important issues such as the election and what the president have planned for our future. What are your plans for the future? How do you plan to survive if we just happen to screw it up and not vote the president back in and get the morons that were in the seat pre-Obama? Do you plan to take a vacation and see some of this beautiful world before your time is up? There are so many things to do that we should consider taking action. In other words, it’s time to stop talking and start doing.
