Taking time to smell the coffee beans or in my case diet coke

Today I took time for me I needed it.  I was basically feeling sorry for myself.  You know the usual, nobody loves me, all I do is for others and who does for me.  I am sure you all have had those days.  So I decide I need stop and have a cold drink and read my magazine.  So I go into second cup (a coffee place like Starbucks)but attached to this place is a bagel place as well.  So I go get a diet coke from the bagel place and decide I need a couple thousand calories and have a cookie from the second cup.  Well all the good seats are gone, you know the comfy ones, the armchairs.  So I sit down at a table, bring out my new Somerset Studio, drink my diet coke and eat the cookie.  Well I proceed to look around, and see this girl (young woman) sitting there having a drink of coffee smiling.  The whole time she sat there is smiled.  I thought to myself Lee what the hell, when was the last time you just sat and smiled.  The more I looked at her the better I felt.  Just then she got up from her comfy chair and asked the lady who was reading her book and drinking her coffee in the cheap seats if she wanted to sit by the window.  I almost got up and hugged her......things like that make my day.  And I felt myself smiling the rest of the day.


  1. taking time out for yourslef is so good and looks like you really needed it too. sounds like it was fun.

  2. I don't like going out much or treating myself to things, but when I'm made too, it always feels good. I work in my home studio and the days I don't feel like making art I will sit and read my art books and stuff.

    Have a good day lee

  3. What a great story. I love sitting in a book store and reading, I love the energy there, and I also love people watching.
    I'm glad you took some time for yourself, you deserve it.

    Have a great Mother's Day.
