Old Cuban

by Pipso Calypso

Sometimes there are moments in life when you feel like you have to celebrate a certain step.

 It might not be something actually happening but just a feeling or mindset. Maybe you just realize that everything is, after all, going to be OK. We get sometimes sucked into the spiral of hunting after our goals, be it professional or in our personal life. But we gotta ask ourselves: are we doing good so far?

Maybe things aren’t as you want them to. But often it could be much worse. Every negative can have opportunities, every failure can bring learning.

So to end with the mumbling and ranting: I have decided that today is a day I want to celebrate everything that is OK. I’ll have an Old Cuban and I will put my best into it.
