It must be the coffee talking
Drinking something that makes me feel so fresh and awake, so happy and energized feels wrong. I probably sound crazy but some days I have a huge internal battle before I make my coffee "do I REALLY need this coffee to feel good today? What if it becomes a crutch? Maybe I should just have some tea. Or some warm lemon water, or....apple cider vinegar." As you can see, the internal conversation goes to a really dark place haha.
All that to say, coffee has been good for me. This simple act of making coffee is teaching me that it's ok to enjoy a cup of coffee (or two) in the mornings, it's ok to feel like a million bucks at 8am even though I'm still in my pajamas and haven't accomplished anything else, and it's ok to love coffee just because of the way it makes me feel, it doesn't have to do anything "good" for my body. It's not good or bad, it just is, and that is good.
