I've been in love with Starbucks for a very long time ~ everyone who knows me knows this. If it were possible to marry Starbucks I might even consider it, but then I'd have to move to Utah, so maybe not.
But seriously, I believe their coffee is roasted to perfection, their cups for sale are distinctive, very cool and always changing, and they put neat little sayings on the sides of their to-go cups instead of dumb marketing jargon that doesn't mean anything. They call these sayings The Way I See It, and here's an example:
The world bursts at the seams with people ready to tell you you're not good enough. On occasion some may be correct. But do not do their work for them. Seek any job; ask anyone out; pursue any goal. Don't take it personally when they say "no" - they may not be smart enough to say "yes"."
- Keith Olbermann
Now, as if the drink inside the cup isn't enough to perk you up, don't those words just make your day, inspire you to live your very best life, motivate you to say "I can!"? They do me.
Forget the naysayers, they are just average people who maybe have just forgotten how to dream. I love it, "pursue any dream"! Besides, who wants to be average?
I think I'll grab me another cuppa SB just to reward their smart marketing. And, because I'm madly in love.
