Well, this is awkward. I’ve never been here before, I’ve never felt like this. How did this happen? How did it come to this? I keep asking myself all those questions.
Coffee has always been my first love. It’s been there for me through so much. The good and the bad and all the in-betweens. Coffee stole my heart a long time ago. But lately coffee has let me down. I’m not blaming caffeine, mind you. I still love caffeine. I still thrive off of caffeine. I’ve simply decided that it was time for coffee and I to have a break.
I’ve been turning to other caffeine sources lately, and I just can’t stand the feeling that I’m cheating on coffee. It’s better to just break up with coffee. For now, at least.
Coffee should wake you up in the morning and give a pep to your walk. It should put a spring in your step and a smile on your face. It should make you productive.
But instead, coffee has been making me so tired. That’s not what coffee is meant to do. I’m already sleepy as it is.

I drink one cup and feel like going back to bed. I drink two cups and three, and then before I know it I’ve downed a triple espresso! And still nothing. Exhaustion is a hard thing to fight off, that’s for sure. But coffee is meant solely for that purpose, right?

Wake up. Get it together, Annie.
Ok, I’m fine now.
Let’s go on.
I do still love coffee and I will still drink coffee, but I can’t turn to coffee for energy anymore. It simply isn’t good enough. It hurts to just say that. I never thought I would ever even think that! But alas, here we are.
wipes tears away
So I’ll ask again, when did this happen?? Coffee has always been there for me. Through thick and thin. And now?
Now I will drink coffee to reminisce. To stir up all those old wonderful memories and to fall asleep during Netflix. Now coffee will be the drink I turn to at the end of the day instead of the beginning. It still holds a special place in my heart. It still makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I can smell it now, just thinking about it as I type this. It smells like heaven.
The hot, rich, steamy deliciousness of that first sip. The mouthwatering sensation that leaves you wanting more and more..
Wait. did I just.. fall in love with coffee all over again??
Let’s be honest though. I could never stop loving coffee. 😉
