It’s a slow morning around here and without a scheduled post ready to share with you, I thought it would be fun if we could meet for coffee and catch up like old friends.

If we were having coffee… I’d tell you that I’m really excited about what’s coming up for Your Super Awesome Life. I’ve been working behind the scenes, prepping for the launch of my second round of Dream Quest. The doors will open in the next couple of weeks and I can’t wait to fill the spots with some incredible women who are ready to go after their big dreams.

If we were having coffee… I’d go on and on about how I crushed one of my running goals yesterday, without even planning to! I went out for an easy 10k run in the park, and after I noticed my first two miles were faster than normal, I decided to try to keep up the pace. I had a lofty goal for the the few months to run a 10k in less than an hour, and yesterday morning I finished in 59:38!

If we were having coffee… I’d talk about how excited I am for the holidays because Christmas is my favorite, and I love the anticipation and joy that fills the air this time of year. I tell you how I’m looking forward to spending Thanksgiving with my grandpa and cousins, decorating the house with lights and wreaths, and reveling in happiness for the next few weeks.

If we were having coffee… I’d tell you that Peter (my boyfriend) and I finally worked out a plan to spend Christmas and New Year’s Eve together and this makes my heart so happy. You’d probably be able to tell because I can’t stop smiling. Then I’d have to get your opinion on Christmas presents since I have no idea what to do this year.

If we were having coffee… I’d tell you how awesome my Pay What You Want special is going and how much fun it is to connect with new people. It’s incredible work. I’d tell you how amazingly lucky I feel to have this job and be able to help people go after what they really want in life.

If we were having coffee… what would you tell me?

If we were having coffee…

I’d probably talk a little about the frustrations I’m dealing with, and ask for your advice on working with people with a work ethic different than mine.

I’d ask for your help thinking of inexpensive and/or homemade gifts for my family, this year, as my funds are too low for what I’d like to buy them.

I’d share with you how excited I am to spend Thanksgiving with my coworker and her family, and how ready I am to return to the West Coast for a few weeks this December/January. I’d rave about Seattle and Portland in the winter, and how I’ve never seen the Space Needle at Christmas but I can’t wait to go when I get there this year.

I’d talk about how many amazing things I have planned for my blog and my Your Story is Worth Telling project, and probably ask for your advice on some of it. I think we’d have a long, wonderful conversation. 🙂

If we were having coffee, I’d be talking excitedly about how freaking excited I am to work with this one super awesome life coach. I’d also tell you about the new project I’m working on and how I’m more excited about it than I ever have been able anything in my life before. Then, of course, I’d have to ramble about how the boy in my life is driving me absolutely crazy but I love him more all the time.

If we were having coffee..

I’d probably tell you how awesome it was to “meet” you the other day!

How I made a first step in my new project and simultaneously broke the blog messing around with the css but then I fixed it but I almost cried before that happened.

I’d probably tell you how it was really nice to reconnect with an old friend who caused me a lot of pain but I’ve learned how much I’ve grown in the past year during that double date. That I’m okay with never going back to the way things were but a casual acquaintance kind of thing is nice. And that other people change too. And even if they don’t, they way I respond to them is different and I truly DON’T care what this person thinks.

I’d probably tell you I’m getting nervous about not finding a job. That I’m sad we won’t have money to really get our nieces and nephews stuff.

I’d probably tell you how I’m feeling restless and in need of an adventure. I so, so hate the cold weather here. Even better that I’m starting my project 🙂

Love this post and I might steal it (with credit) for my blog!!

If we were having coffee…

I would squeal with excitement that you & Peter get to spend the holidays together. YAY!

I would talk a bit about how excited I am to get away this weekend and go on a cruise – even if it’s a short one and doesn’t stop anywhere. I’m even more excited that it’s my first girl’s trip ever (I KNOW) and I just now I am going to have a great time.

I would tell you that I’m feeling very happy and satisfied with my life lately, but can’t help feeling a little disheartened by dating (or my lack thereof, I should say) lately. And that I fear I may never find someone to share my life with.

Hey Ashley! I just read this post right before our call! And we sort of did just have coffee, virtual coffee. But, I would also just say I’m so excited for what we’ve both got going on for next year. Yay!
