Deep Feelings From The Inside Of A Coffee Shop

Deep Thoughts From The Inside Of A Coffee Shop
It's Monday and here we are passing through another week in July. How is that even possible? I for one don't even know how to begin to fathom how quickly this month is already passing by. It seems like just yesterday I was ringing in the New Year and looking forward to so many different life goals and yet here I am trying to manage my way through the 7th month of the year. I have been trying my hardest not to feel like I am not behind in life but the reality of it is sometimes it just feels that way for no reason. Ugh!
As time continues to go on and I look around at all the things that are happening around me I start to realize that those thoughts are just plain ole silly. Sometimes I remind myself that I have clean air to breathe, clothes on my back, and a family to love me and that there is no reason for me to feel ungrateful. Which in a sense I don't ever feel like I am being ungrateful but I always feel like I could/should be doing more to get ahead in life. The humanistic experience is such a strange trial sometimes because it's hard to decipher what's important and what really isn't. More often than not, constantly thinking about where you "should" be in life can be kind of exhausting and I for one am tired.
Deep Thoughts From The Inside Of A Coffee Shop
"So in order to change my perspective a bit, I have created a little list of things I am currently smashing right now. Whether it be big or small, it is all worth celebrating"
  • Spending quality time with the family without being glued to the phone! I promise people around you are cooler than you think once you start to pay attention.
  • My writing skills have improved! The more you practice the better you'll become.
  • I have been taking time out for myself when I know I need to refuel.
  • I have been praying more.
  • I have been handling adult situations a lot better.
  • I have been learning to help out more when I feel like the world is crumbling around me.
  • I have been hanging out with friends more than usual.
  • Embracing the situations that I have now because honestly, it could be worse.
  • I have been eating a lot better.
  • I have been taking time out to dance and enjoy life more.
  • I have been enjoying the conversations that  I have with my boyfriend.
  • Embracing honesty and knowing when to improve.
  • My patience has improved.
  • Laughing a bit more than usual.

And that's only the beginning! One thing I am learning is that life is full of surprises and at the end of the day it's up to you to decide how you're going to let it control your life. At the end of the day, I want nothing but peace and happiness and a quiet place to call home. I am yearning for peace not only in my life but in others as well. So the next time you find yourself alone in a little coffee shop; write down your thoughts and really think about where you are in your headspace. It's important to also focus on a bit of positive reinforcement because sometimes we have to encourage ourselves no matter what's going on.


Best,
