Oddly Located Inspirations

As you know I recently was out of town on vacation.

While I will not divulge any major details there is one small thing I want to share.

On the last day I was gone I had wandered to a small hole in the wall cafe for breakfast.

Really it was down behind two other buildings and you had to walk through an alley to get there.

Totally worth it as the food was really good and it wasn't far from the hotel.

What made this place really stand out was not the food however. It was the decor.

On all the walls inside customers had written words or phrases, maybe signed their name or drew a little character. The cafe actually will supply you with a Sharpe to accomplish this if you feel the need to express yourself in similar fashion.

It was super cool and one of the neatest things I had ever seen.

What really made me take notice was the set of words that stood out to me as my eyes scanned about the room trying to take them all in.

"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who don't. And believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy."

Strong enough words that I wrote them down. Not to mention they were on the heels of a magnet I had purchased earlier in the week.

"What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?"

Amazing what you will find when walking about the world.

Or eating is a small cafe two thousand miles from home.

I truly believe we are connected to one another on such a deep spiritual level that we ARE the answer to each other, the question is whether or not we take the time to see it.

Those people wrote that just for you, they just never knew it. :)

Great story, I love things like this!
