Some like it hot and some like it cold!

We’re different—each of us.

I like hot
  • coffee,
  • baths,
  • showers, and
  • fresh cookies.
I like cold 
  • ice (duh),
  • water (icy),
  • candy bars (frozen actually), and
  • Swiss Cake Rolls (frozen, too).
Today, I’m feeling decisive. I’m happier when I’m decisive. You’ll feel happier, too, if you are making decisions for yourself. You’ll feel more significant when you're the driver behind your actions. 

You don't have to follow the crowd where you don’t want to travel. And if you would like something your way, say so. Don’t throw a fit, just calmly say how it is. Like this...

“I don’t like ice cream, much.”
“That’s un-American.”
“I like apple pie!”
“Okay, that’s good, but I don’t understand the ice cream thing.”

It's taken me a lot of years to arrive at this place, where I matter. You can do it, too. Be your own driver. Say what you need. You'll thank me for it later.

Happy Monday!

  1. I can be really, really decisive...when I'm just doing something by myself. :) When someone asks me where we should go out to eat? I become very indecisive. I think I need to work on this!

  2. I'm very decisive when it comes to coffee - no sir, don't like it.

  3. I don't understand the ice cream thing either. It was the best food ever invented. And, you're right. Have your own voice and don't be afraid to use it.

  4. From a devout line of coffee drinkers I never understood the nor developed the love of coffee.

    Still waiting to drive...

  5. I'm decisive as can be when it comes to food, and most other things.

  6. Hi Teresa .. I'm decisive .. but if I don't mind I'll go with the flow ... I prefer Nescafe in the morning ... after that never again usually ... tea sometimes ... cold water or cold drinks I don't like ... ice with things I don't like ... I like ice-cream (good quality) occasionally ...

    But give me sunshine - and I'm happy!! Cheers Hilary

  7. Being decisive is a major item in fighting ulcers! :-) I like hot and cold tea. Hot in the morning and at night. Have a great new week!

  8. Hot weather I loathe.
    And I am also not a fan of the term 'UnAustralian'. We are a big and varied country, with room for lots of difference.
    I matter? A work in progress. Still.

  9. I guess you could say I'm decisive that I'm indecisive at times. :)

  10. I'm pretty decisive and that has caused people to tell me I'm too this, too that, too picky, etc etc etc. No. I know what I like and don't like.

  11. I'm not always good at saying what I need - gotta work on that!

  12. Such a postive post. I've always been decisive, even if it's left me out on a limb. You're right in saying being decisive makes one feel good and empowered. That doesn't mean I don't 'feel the fear' from time to time - I do - but that's okay too. Have a great week!!

  14. I like my coffee hot, but then again iced coffee can be pretty refreshing. I've been hooked on McDonald's mocha frappe's lately.

    Decisive is good. I get things done more quickly when I'm decisive.
