Elixir of Life

My life anyway…

Can you go without coffee? I am not addicted, but I know, I cannot. I am addicted to the smell and its warmth. I don’t get a charge from drinking it, I get a charge from its essence.

Each day I wake up and first have hot lemon and ginger water and do my yoga practice. But then when work starts, I bring in the big guns. Coffee.

Its aroma and the way it makes you feel. What other substance starts your day as well as the coffee bean?

I’m not even kidding when I tell you, there have been days when I feel like I am in a mad love relationship with the idea of coffee. It’s that important to my very existence!

I’ve gone without it for years, I’ve cleansed myself without it, I’ve done the decaf or the Green Tea, the Matcha Tea or the Yerba Mate’. But really… I now know I cannot live without it.

And I have to admit, I’m a total coffee snob. I have an espresso machine and a Keurig. I do not indulge in the cartridges premade for convenience that I once thought were cool. I’m a Latte Girl for sure. There’s nothing like foaming up some milk and pouring espresso over foam to get my engine roaring for another day of not #fakenews 😉

What’s YOUR guilty pleasure?
