One of my new favourite things to do is purchase an expensive delicious beverage from Starbucks and spend the next 1-2 hours blogging away or writing in my own personal journal. Why do I purchase a six dollar coffee when I could just make one and write in the comfort of my own home? It’s all about the experience. Plus, it takes me a good hour to finish my grande flat white latte. There’s something about observing the hustle and bustle of the world around us. People coming, people going, long time friends meeting up after a year of not seeing each other, parents saying goodbye to their kids who are going off to university, widowers and widows, business people doing business things, students studying, and me – the stomachless blogger.
The interesting thing about having a health scare is that it changes your perspective on life. It forces your to slow down and evaluate where your priorities lie. It shakes you out of your normal routine and forces you to develop as an individual. You truly understand how many people love you and are supporting you. I realized that everyone is writing their own story that I may know nothing about. Maybe that’s why I have taken a new love to hanging out in coffee shops.
