Being between a rock and a hard place sometimes just means that we have to be broken a little to produce something brew-tiful. Sometimes I share things I’ve struggled with, and still been able to see the light. I believe that each day is a gift, no matter how hard it may be. Grind mode is where I share some of these situations, and I hope that they encourage you to still rise, grind, redefine and shine.

We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.

2 Corinthians 4:7-8

Who doesn’t love a good brew. Time allowed for hot water to permeate every grain of coffee and filter through them slowly. TheΒ  aroma perfuming the air as it diffuses through it. Brewed coffee evokes deep feelings and that is what these posts are to me. Going through major changes is like hot water. But there is beauty in such moments. These are the ones I write that are inspired by the quiet and quality moments I spend with God.

I think it’s safe to call myself a creative. If it’s not a new post, it’s a DIY project, and if not that then something else. I’m still trying to find my forte and I love to meet other creatives who are constantly redefining their craft and making the world bright and beautiful in their own way. This is where creative meets edge in a spectrum of forms.

One of my favourite sayings is, “You can’t pour from an empty cup”. Not everyday has to be driven by caffeine coursing through your veins. I don’t actually do decaf, it just sounds cute πŸ™‚ But I do love to have a frequent teatox. Green tea or cranberry pomegranate rooibos are my faves. Taking time out is important. Escape the busyness and take a moment to breathe. Let’s take a stroll through the decaf lane.
