“But first, Coffee. Each day the coffee beans are ground into a fine powder. Mixed with the sound of a blender and the pure essence of fragrance. As the morning sun shines so the smell of coffee penetrates with the sound of the percolator. Eye’s still full of sand with the hopes of awakening at the first warm sip of coffee. As it touches the lips the smooth, “Ahhh.” is released from the vocal cords.
Released from the inner core is the peace of knowing that sip will lead to a better day because I’ll tell you what without my coffee you and I were not meant to meet. All joking aside the coffee is the perfect elixir that helps kick start the day on a positive note. It helps me look in the mirror and say, “Good morning and good day. Everything today will be positive. I love you.”
Some how the comfort of a simple beverage creates the serenity I seek throughout the day.”
But First, Coffee
I know, you’re probably wondering what this has to do with self-discovery and life, inspiration or motivation. I’ll tell you where it all begins. It starts with the simple routine of comfort. Where each step begins and the next proceeds. The serene ability to decide what I do first in the morning before I interact with the outer world. Building up to the preparation of being able to face the world head on and to continue on with my adventure through life. I know myself well enough to know, without my coffee there is no reason to get out of bed. It might sound silly but it’s a habit, and a good one in my eyes, that I’ve stuck to for the past 15 years and it works.
You see, self discovery is defining yourself as a person. Not objectively but truly understanding the inner workings of your nature. What works for you may not work for others. What works for others may never work for you. There is a fine balance between learning, seeing and observing the world to tailor it into your own harmony. Being able to depict yourself through every move you make with the awareness that it is what makes you complete as a person.
Question For The Day
What part of your day can you not go without? Is it for the benefit of your own well being and how well does it work?
Hear me out, there are negative habits and positive ones. Most habits are negative. Not the ones you harness with joy and serenity though, which are meant to keep you sane and functional. Another one for me is the five minutes I sit in my chair in front of a shrine I have built of family members and friends I have lost over the years. My five internal minutes with those that I have lost and love. I can thank each of them for the knowledge that they have brought into my life and move on with my day, after telling them I miss them and love them that is.
Find that ground of serenity to sit on. Drift away in the soft sound of the ocean waves and remain content with the world as it is.
