I’ve been seeing these posts on blogs lately and thought I would join in on the fun. It goes without saying that if I were having coffee with any of you, I would start with a big hug, a cup of caffe mocha, and you would see my awkwardness when I first meet someone on full display. It’s part of my charm, I suppose.
If were having a coffee date, I would begin our conversation talking about how happy I am to have today off of work. I don’t take too many days off work for “me days” (I try to save up for vacations) but I felt like taking a day to myself. I would tell you that I don’t have anything too exciting planned for the day, but plan on sleeping in, knocking off a ton of to-do’s, and catching up on guest posts.
If we were having a coffee date, I would tell you my big, exciting news: my mom and I booked another cruise! Of course, you may think I am crazy for booking a cruise when Carnival is having so many issues but I’m not worried at all. I have no fear and am so excited that I’m going to be on a ship again in less than 6 weeks. My thoughts are if something happens, it happens. I’m not going to let the fear of what if stop me from doing something I love. I would tell you all I’m looking forward to: fruity drinks, afternoons spent lazily reading a book with the ocean in front of me, delicious dinners and even better desserts, time spent exploring tropical locations. I’m looking forward to time off work and to completely escape my life for five whole days.
If we were having a coffee date, I would admit I have been feeling very uninspired lately with my workouts. I would mention how I’m missing Best Body Bootcamp something fierce and how excited I am for it to start up in a little more than a week.
If we were having a coffee date, I would probably show you adorable pictures of my nephew playing t-ball and tell you how fun it is to watch him play. I would regale you with silly tales of his antics in the outfield and my eyes would shine bright with pride as I talk about him hitting the ball and running around the bases. I would tell you how much watching 4- to 6-year-olds learn to play baseball puts a smile on my face – especially after watching a 4-year-old moonwalk from third base to home plate.
If we were having a coffee date, we would definitely fall into the discussion of blogging. (How could we not?) We would chit chat about bloggers we know and blogging in general. I would probably talk about a comment I received this week about how ridiculous it is to write letters to my future husband. Dear friend, you probably know how much these letters mean to me, how they are my heart and soul, and comments like these rip me apart. I try not to let negative comments affect me too much, but when you write vile, nasty things about something so important, so special, so pure and innocent… it breaks my heart.
If we were having a coffee date, I would tell you how ready I am to take the next step in my life. I would be honest and upfront that I know it’s my time to make a big change to my world. These past few years have been game changers in how much I have learned about myself and my abilities. It’s time to rest in the knowledge that I am capable and stop letting the fear of the unknown chase away good opportunities.
Of course, a coffee date cannot be one-sided. If we were on a coffee date, what would you talk about?!
