I recently took a break from coffee. The 'coffee break' is something we tend to do, maybe once a year, just to say we can, and its a good reminder of just how dependent we are on it. This is typically not an easy thing for me to do, and usually goes hand in hand with a few headaches, some irritability, a lack of motivation and generally a foggy state...but not for long. I drink a little more tea, shake up the morning ritual a little, try out a few different drinking vessels. And before I know it, I'm good and satisfied with the break and back on coffee.
It's not so much of a break, as it is a productive pause, let's call it. Enough time to step back, change things up a bit and appreciate both the break and the habit! I love coffee, too much to give it up for good. And I love to write, too much to give it up for good.
I've taken a break from this blog writing, enough time to take stock and reevaluate what and why I want to write.
