SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL COFFEE SHOP ☕️🇨🇦
커피 숍을 지원하십시오

This morning

, I felt the need to reflect by myself and write down some thoughts, so I sauntered into one of my favourite local coffee shops. Because I’m an introvert, I often recharge by being alone, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love spontaneous interactions with people. My experience this morning reaffirmed my LOVE for coffee shops.

Life today is often compartmentalized, scheduled and hurried, dominated by exact timelines and deadlines. There is often little room in our daily rhythms and communities for spontaneity, delight, connection. But in 45 minutes this morning, I had four interactions with four different people from four very different walks of my life. None of these interactions were terribly long or deep. Perhaps because of their unexpected nature, the conversations were quite satisfying — even this introvert felt nourished by the many touchpoints with so many different people. Altogether, they made me feel like a complete human being — a pleasant and gentle reminder that I am indeed part of a more extensive community that values my existence.

Coffee shops have been everything to me. My refuge. My place I've always gone when I needed to find comfort. And peace. It's been a source of deep thoughts and a source of joy and satisfaction.
