:: WHY WE BE ::

Boo to false, self-imposed limits, we say. These champion oracles want to live enthusiastically. Follow our trip through projects that challenge, frustrate, and/or scare us. In the end (which is really the middle) we want to live like big bright free and authentically awesome people.

COFFEE Community Update #2 (Plus the inaugural COFFEE assignment.)

How about a COFFEE Community update?

Angie @ Angie's List. Yogi Angie has joined our ranks! Check in over at Angie's List--CLICK HERE--to read about her progress with the Quantum Wellness Challenge. With the encouragement of an energetic and perky trainer named Rob, Angie, a devout foodie, has shucked caffeine, alcohol, animal products, wheat gluten, and sugar, for 21 days (or more). [P's Note: I am writing this as I eat cheese and crackers and drink wine.]

Michelle @ In Search of My Muchness. Michelle's pancreas has jokes, ya'll. The mass may be malignant. As Michelle preps for major surgery, she's tackling a big clean-up project at home, making order out of one chaotic room. Because the Universe has jokes, too, just as Michelle was planning several donation runs to Goodwill, she received a notice for a free donation pick-up service benefitting... children's cancer. Nice. Check in with Michelle--RIGHT HERE-- (and send out big prayers, too, while you're at it.).

As always, if you'd like to join the satellite COFFEE community: Pick your project; start your blog; and leave a comment letting us know. We'll be one big happy supportive family of badasses.

But maybe you don't want the pressure of a blog. Maybe you'd just like an assignment. So here is the inaugural COFFEE Community Assignment:

Assignment 1: Do something that makes you uncomfortable. Go to dinner alone. Go to a movie alone. Drive to a neighboring town and take photos of random items along the way. Introduce yourself to a stranger (preferably one not holding a machete). Whatever. Then tell us about your experience in the comment section below. Do it!

And a P.S.: We all happen to be women here, but you don't have to be.
