Coffee : The Apt Analogy.

Holidays are no good for me it seems. No good at all. Even taking a trip with friends prompts thoughts. And through these thoughts, I have concluded that life is like a cup of coffee.

Yes, it’s the best analogy I can come up with.

Because depending how much sugar and creamer you’re gonna add, that’ll be how sweet or rich your cup of caffeine will be.

But the problem with that is; some people like it sweet, and some people like it bitter. Some people like it with creamer and some people like it without. Some people drink it with both while others like simply black.

How am I supposed to decide how I like my coffee, right?

Or if I even like coffee at all?

What if I fancy a cup of hot chocolate instead? Or maybe I’d prefer tea? Or a cup of cappuccino? Or Cafe Latte? Or maybe I want one of those ridiculously colourful looking fruit blends?

What do I then? Can I change my blend after one sip, deciding it’s not for me after all? Should I just send it back to the counter now and ask for something else?

Or would that all be a huge mistake because I happen to love coffee and just not know it?

I’m over thinking, I know, it’s what I do, overthink, it’s my thing, and I really shouldn’t, but I don’t want to make a mistake so intractable by jumping into things so I want to take my time. And I SHOULD take my time, yes? It’s a big decision, I mean I could be allergic to caffeine for crying out loud and that could be life threatening, I could bleeding die!

But I guess I can sit and stare while it grows colder by the minute, or I can pick it up and savour the taste, adding sugar as I go, creamer if I feel like it, and I’ll never have to wonder if I’ve missed out on the hidden greatness in that cuppa. (Providing I don’t go into anaphylactic shock)

So I guess what I’m trying to say is, if you don’t pick it up that cup and actually put it to your lips for a sip, you’ll never truly know what you want.
