Ah, Coffee. We all love coffee. For me personally, my relationship with coffee has been turbulent.
Our relationship has been long-term. I’ve been drinking coffee since I was in elementary school. We’ve had our ups and downs. We’ve broken up twice. But now were together again. Really. I’m drinking coffee as I’m writing this.
So as I usually do, I’ve been thinking, what makes us drink coffee? Is it just because it wakes us up? I’ve actually talked about this topic with a few people and they’ve actually told me that coffee doesn’t always wake them up like they’d want to. Yet they can’t seem to quit it.
So what is the real reason we drink coffee? What is the real reason we need that coffee in order to start our day?
I believe coffee is more of a choice we make to not give in to the laziness and really just kick it in the ass. It’s about taking control of your life and not letting the inactive side of you just continue on snooze mode forever. It’s a note to self and to everyone else that you’re ready to kick-ass and to do whatever life brings you.
So next time you’re looking for that next cup of coffee, just remember that it’s 10% the coffee that’s working and 90% your own mentality.
