Coffee shop musings. | 14.06.17

It's 7am. I've been up and about since just after 5, and I'm currently sat in the corner of my favourite coffee shop waiting for my 9.30am nail appointment just around the corner. The barista's here all know me now. In fact, it's got to the point where I'll never be able to change my order here because they make it for me as soon as I walk through the door. 

But I like that.

It's like a tiny sense of belonging and community that just makes me a little bit happier.

Normally, when I'm sat here, I'm sat with my laptop. Focused on writing, editing, replying to emails and goodness knows what else. But today, I decided to leave my laptop at home and bring a book with me in a bid to try and switch off a little more and be more mindful.

But you're writing a blog post, Soph? 

I know, I know. I did start reading my book, I promise. But I think my brain needs a little more training to be able to switch off and only focus on one thing at a time. Because, as I was reading, I had this overwhelming urge to start writing. But not about anything in particular. I just want to write.

I love discovering and reading new blogs, but there are a few blogs that I've read ever since I first discovered blogging, and I'm still just as in love with them, and I think I'm slightly in love with the ladies behind them. Do you know what I mean? Those bloggers who you'd love to be best friends with because they seem like such beautiful people, are so strong and motivated and inspiring that you feel like your life would be a whole lot better if they were a part of your life?

Well, I've just finished reading a post from one of these ladies in particular. And one of the reasons I love her blog so much is because I get lost in her writing. It's like reading her diary and I love having this little insight into her life and her incredible mind. Her blog is so personal and I love that.

So, I think I'm going to give this a go. Go back to writing more personal posts. But maybe not the huge, deep & meaningful life essay kind. But ones where I just document my thoughts for the day. Any random days, nothing in particular. I don't want the pressure of having it as a 'weekly feature', because like anything you feel like you 'have' to do, I soon get bored and don't want to do that anymore.

I feel like I'm about to hit another, very steep, life learning curve over the next few months, so this could be a great release, and a way to look back with (hopefully!) fondness in a few years time.
