If We Were on a Coffee Date...

If we were on a coffee date...
I’d start by asking you what you’d like and then I’d order a grande iced coffee with 1 pump pumpkin and coconut milk (hello pumpkin szn). I’d also probably go on a saga about how I have cut my coffee drinking down significantly because I am trying to omit the acid intake in my diet but, I’d also say “what’s the point of life if you don’t treat yourself every once in a while” amiright?
I’d ask you how life was going. Are you just getting by? Living life to the fullest? Barely surviving? I’d tell you that I cycle through all of these emotions on the regular. I’d say though I feel like things are “normal” now, they are also so far from the normal we once knew. I’d tell you though I do feel like Covid-19 is very real, I am just over it. I am over seeing people get sick, over the worrying, over the split sides on it. Id make a point to tell you that I love my masks-especially the ones that match Noah’s, that they are a life saver when I don’t feel like doing my full makeup. But that I am over not being able to see people’s smiles fully. That I am over things being closed and cancelled. That I just want to enroll Noah in his former tumbling class he used to love.
We’d move on and I’d tell you I am feeling inspired. I am happy. I am okay. We’d talk about this past year from actual hell but how this year is turning up. I’d ask you what positives you have from this year. Mine would be my creativity coming back with a vengeance, seeing Noah smile and grow so much, my new found love of plants, and the fact that I have opened my heart to love again.
We’d talk about the man who is tagged in all of my Instagram stories.
Then we’d chat about life in general. I’d confess that as much as I love my job, I miss being a stay at home mom. I miss having Noah all day everyday and being able to do whatever we wanted when we wanted. I’d also share that I know that just isn’t in the current cards and that I was okay with that at the end of the day. But I am valid to reminisce.
I would ask you where you were at spiritually. I’d share that I have reconnected with God. That I have been a lot better about trusting his plan vs forcing my own. We’d laugh about how I learned my lesson with that the hard way.
We’d then look at the time and I would tell you that you’re doing amazing. In life, at work, creatively, as a mom, whatever it may be. Because we all enjoy unexpected encouragement.
We’d take our final sips and I would tell you I hope the rest of your week is wonderful and this coffee date was just what I needed. I hope it was for you too! I’d give you the biggest hug or air hug because #covid. And then we’d part ways with plans to do this again sometime.
If we were on a coffee date, what would you say?
