I believe everyone who knows me also know that I am always down for a cup of coffee. It’s about time to tell you why am I so obsessed with it. Do I just love the taste of the coffee so much or am I just addicted to it. Well, maybe it’s both ?!?
There are different kind of coffee drinkers:
- the ones who grab it from Starbucks/Coffee-In/R-Kiosk/The Coffee Bean
- the ones who go sit down in a coffee shop
- the ones who take it with them in the morning while in a hurry
- the ones who drink it at work just to keep they’re eyes open
- the ones who absolutely need it as a motivation to get out of the bed
Should there be only one option? Absolutely not, I am all of those!
But for me, it is something more than just a drink. It is something that will allow me to sit down and just enjoy being in the moment, to be present. Even if I grab a coffee from Starbucks, I will go find a quiet corner to be on my own. Plus, coffee has all those extra values, like: caffeine, to keep me awake and a good taste.
Drinking coffee is like a ritual I have created for myself, I look forward to it every single day. I enjoy drinking my coffee from a mug/pretty cup, the prettier the mug/cup, the better the taste and the valuable the moment is.( another way to think about this is if you’d rather drink your wine out of a glass or straight from the bottle) Drinking coffee from a mug/pretty cup allows to enjoy it more and create a zen moment for myself.
I feel like in those busy days we all have, we forget to breathe, to feel ourselves being present and do a little evaluation check, where am I/why am I here/What to Do.
There’s a guy in this coffee shop sitting at a table, not on his phone, not on a laptop, just drinking coffee, like a psychopath.

Drinking coffee is the cheapest therapy for me. Paying a few euros/dollars every day is totally worth it. This is my experience about slowing down my day, my year, my life. Writing down my values, what I appreciate, what I have scheduled; or just stare at this cat (down below) my lovely co-worker drew for me 🙂
What do you do when you feel rushed? How do you deal with the world that gets faster and faster every day?
