Life is Like a Cup of Coffee ~ Author Unknown


Like many of you, I enjoy a cup of coffee first thing in the morning.

This video gave me a new perspective on a cup of coffee. I hope it will for you also ~ enjoy!



“Enjoy your coffee today, be happy with the cup you are drinking from and enjoy your life!”

thank you for your visit,

~ Penny

  1. Even better, enjoy the cup you have, enjoy seeing the nice cups everyone else has, give them better cups when you can, and everyone enjoy the coffee! (spoken from the land of good coffee, both literally and figuratively)

    • Thank you Madelaine, I wish I could take credit for the composition, unfortunately it is not mine. The only information I can share with you is that the photographer used the name of godidwir. I found it in a photography morgue file that has free image reference material. I agree with you it is awesome!

  2. Love this video and the profound message. I too have a mug for my coffee that just feels good in my hand, more a comfort as I savor the coffee. A very special post today from a very special woman. Thanks Penny! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, I have a cup just like that too. I dont covet the cup but holding it while I drink the coffee does make me feel better so I understand what you’re saying LuAnn, thank you dear friend! πŸ™‚

  3. so great Penny ~ so true!! xxoo Much Love and will ponder this as I drink my savored am coffee tomorrow – usually out of my mug – which is usually the one with my kids’ college name imprinted on it because I like the way if feels in my hand!! πŸ™‚

  4. hmm…how timely. You fired this off almost withing minutes of me reading a recent article about “happiest people on planet”. Latin America has the happiest beople on the planet per Gallop poll. Its just like what the professor said, its not wealth, education, what you have, or don’t have. They live simply, love&care for their family, & make the best of everything. I guess the proof is in the poll. Although, maybe its just the quality of their coffee beans…Am I over thinking this? lol

      • I think we may have found ourselves a perfect location for the said retirement
        Happy people everywhere, lots of love/life/respect, amazing coffee, warm weather, and we can all watch the amazing Monarch butterfly migration twice/year!!
        Did I ever tell you how much I LOVE your blog that inspires retirement? I’m in a happier place just thinking about it πŸ™‚

        • I agree with you Chris. The perfect location across the board. Thank you, “Your happiness is my happiness” … guess what movie that line is from? Hint: Christina will know if you don’t!” πŸ™‚

          • you simply are marvelous at serving the public with your dose of happiness πŸ™‚
            I have no clue where that line came from, I’m guessing another chick flick?lol
            Speaking of Christina, we agreed you need to put some sort of warning label/disclaimer on your homepage. We know of at least one sampling data point thats has shown symptons of distraction and disarray as result of nightly conversation

            • It’s from a sort of chick flick “The Mummy” with a little adven. and spooky stuff/special effects, rescue the damsel, save the world, kill the bad guy gig!

              A Disclaimer or perhaps a waiver from a doctor that says reasonable doses are good for your “Happiness Factor”!

              • I never watched that movie. At some point I should probably stop watching only the old movies and start watching something Maybe I’ll put Ghostbusters on hold for this weekend.

                Thats a pretty good disclaimer, its very…’penny’esque’ πŸ™‚

  5. That’s brilliant. not always true though, I tend to go for the plastic cups. I’m likely to break the posh cups. I do like the inspirational message though. It is amazing how you find these things though. Thank you for another brilliant post.

Thank you for your thoughts!
