Grab Life By The Beans ☕

Hold the Tim's and skip the Starbucks! The House of Java has exactly what you need without all big box store push. They also have something that you can't buy anywhere! And, that my dear reader is inspiration. Given enough coffee, I could rule the world... or at least that's how I feel most days.

As an Author, Blogger and Content Creator, I need a constant drip of inspiration. I mean, lots of inspiration!! Inspiration has been the main driving force of how I managed to write and publish 5 books in 5 years? Like most writers, I like to draw my inspiration from movies, television, articles, conversations, events, my imagination and even my dreams. But, what triggers those moments of inspiration? Well, coffee of course and the House of Java always delivers a full cup of inspo when I need it.

Some creative souls can absorb inspiration energy naturally while others turn to substances to awaken their creative spirit. For me, I get my best creative energy from trying something new. New does not always come in the form of something wild and crazy. But, let me assure you, new can be completely exhilarating when you open yourself up to change. That's exactly why I decided to ditch my regular coffee house go to and sip on something different. What a difference a brew makes. The change in coffee flavours, locations and atmosphere not only did me good, it recharged my creative spirit and reminded me that even small changes are the key to giving me fresh inspiration.

A simple change on how you start your day can be the difference you need and the energy your inspiration can thrive on. Try the simplicity of enjoying your morning cup of joe with nature. Step away from the newspapers, tablets, televisions and smart phones and take your coffee out on a date into the outdoors. Spend time with your own emotions and set your intentions for the day. Explore the possibilities of your dreams and then determine how you can make them sip of coffee at a time.
