if we were having coffee... / vol. 1

by - 11:34 AM

I've seen this a few times online, and loved it. So I figured why not make it a regular part of my blog?

I'm picturing a pretty, indie coffee shop. A hidden treasure in the middle of a busy suburb. The walls are beige, and coated in quotes & memoirs from the owner's travels around the world. I've chosen a table in the back corner, away from the ordering counter & the hustle & bustle of the other customers getting their caffeine fix.

I would tell you that at the time of writing this, I have 1 exam left of my high school career & it's such a bittersweet feeling. I'm super keen for university, but I'm scared of the unknown.

I would tell you that I've decided that December is a month of change. I have a few parts of my lifestyle that are not bringing me much happiness & I'd like to cut them out, so that by January I'll have a clean, fresh slate.

I would tell you that I haven't been this happy in a while. I've been focusing on finding my happiness in myself first, and not in the people around me, and I've been teaching myself not to sweat the big things.

I'd tell you that I really want to start blogging more consistently, but I'm not sure if I'll ever have a set schedule. I want this blog to stay something I enjoy, instead of being something that feels like a chore.

Now. It's your turn, what would you tell me about your life over a nice cuppa? What would be the beverage of your choice? What does the coffee shop look like?

mad love.

  1. If we were having coffee I would respond:I love that you are aware of the internal conflict - of ending off with something and starting something new. Lovely, huge leaps into the unknown are generally really good;) All the best of luck at varsity.I would also say that giving up/ cutting out is not always easy, but if you have a plan - stick to it - and if you back track a bit, be gentle enough to realise that it takes small steps. And focusing on your own happiness? They need to teach EVERY ONE that stuff at school! It will stand you in good stead for the rest of your life's journey. And then finally - we sometimes need to remind ourselves to do the stuff we love - or at least nurture it - like hugging someone close to us, watering our pot plants - and yes - writing that blog!
    Many blessing as you embark on this journey Becca!
