Morning Coffee

Drinking coffee in the morning is such a universal act, no matter what your status in life maybe. The rich, the poor, the famous and the ordinary, decaf, non-fat, espresso, 3-in-1, whatever it is, it is a one thing that we all have in common.

People however have different reasons for drinking a cup of coffee every morning. For some, drinking coffee is a way to get in touch with their friends, a way to socialize. For others, it may be as something as straight forward as an energy boost. Drinking morning coffee to me though is a ritual, a reward, a routine, a state of mental preparation for what lays ahead of me. It is something to look forward to each day.

Morning coffee brings me bliss.

I can state a number of reasons why I love drinking hot coffee in the morning.

One reason is that coffee mentally prepares me for the challenges and events that will take place that morning. It is the alarm clock for my brain. Another is that coffee brings hope to my life; hope that one day at a time, I will not need to rely on coffee or dopamine to make me happy; hope that coffee will not be my only reason to wake up and face another day.

Coffee in the morning is not the same as coffee in the afternoon. Each sip I take renews my outlook and refreshes my soul – all in preparation for the day ahead of me. It also eases stress when I know there will be storm coming in. Every gulp is like a reminder that I can get through this.

Coffee sparks creativity as well. It activates brain cells and ideas just seem to jump right at me. Drinking morning coffee is something I cannot miss. It is my companion. When everything and everyone seems to have let me down, a cup of coffee is all it takes to lift my spirit. With all these in mind, I’m pretty sure that I am not the only one who feels the same.

Coffee is big part of people’s lives and it’s no wonder why coffee business is sprouting here and there.
Morning coffee to me is not a luxury, but a necessity to get through life.
