Because that means I can enjoy a cup of coffee and get caught up on my favorite morning rituals (which are no longer rituals because I'm usually gone to work by this time) without rush and worry. Today's concoction is black silk with a packet of stevia and a bit of coconut oil since I'm trying to go healthier and all, served up in my cute pink "K" (my first initial) cup given to my by my aunt. It's delicious!
And how are you this morning? Or afternoon/evening, or whenever you're reading? I truly hope you're doing well. Today's Coffee Chat really has me thinking. The question for the week is "What is the one question you would ask everyone you meet?" I'm a huge believer in the power of words, and everyone likes to feel important, or at least acknowledged. So for me, it's just a very simple "How are you?" It has to be genuinely asked, though. (My job has taught me that people will say they're feeling awful just to make sure you're paying attention to them, and you had better be listening....you don't want to say something like "glad to hear that" when they've told you they feel terrible!)
Aside from that? I'm not sure. There isn't much else you can ask without getting too personal, and one thing people value more than feeling noticed/acknowledged/important is their privacy. What do YOU want to ask every person you meet?
Song for today: "Lights" by Journey. The first Journey song I ever heard (or maybe it was "Wheel in the Sky"), and I've loved it ever since. I was a little girl when this came out, and hearing it always takes me back to a less complex time. Lyrically speaking, it has nothing to do with the uncomplicated days of childhood, but that's always where my mind goes. (Not to mention, it has one of my favorite guitar solos!) I've been listening to it a lot lately since I've been pondering some new major, life-altering decisions lately and have needed the peace of mind that sometimes only comes in the form of hearing a good tune.
