I love coffee. I love coffee more than food. I have 8 different kinds of coffee and 15 coffee mugs. Oh and yes….I live alone. LOL. On top of that….. Did I tell you, I have 6, (or is it 7) t-shirts with sayings about coffee. And into the coffee goes anything from almond milk to maple syrup and MCT oil to cacao powder. Change it up. Drink it up. Enjoy it. All. Day.
But, then there are days when I just want it exactly as it is, right out of the press. Poured straight into the cup so I can enjoy the boldness, the robust flavor, the deep dark roast.
It’s kinda like our life.
We can add anything from colorful pants to cute ankle socks and cool flat boots to braids. Spice it up. Sass it up. Enjoy it. All. Day.
But, then there are those days we want to be as we are, straight out of the press. Right? Straight up. No additions. Enjoying the boldness, the grit & truth, the raw essence of you.
Change is good. Sitting on the patio with a cup of coffee can be just as wonderful as sitting in the car at the bus stop. Life can be just as enjoyable home alone or out with a crowd. And we can be just as amazing living from that place of joy, the peace deep inside, the you that matters to you or getting all dolled up for an afternoon downtown.
If it’s enjoyable to put on some mascara, a matching belt and your prettiest sweater, then do it. But if you’re having a I-don’t-feel-like-it kinda day and you want to wear holey socks and your over-sized comfy sweater, then do that! And remind yourself, just like my cup of coffee, sometimes adding a little something something is just as good as Plain And Straight Up!
Just be sure to Drink the Coffee.
