To the people at Starbucks l am known as "Tall Americano".
Aptly, I am Tall. And I do so love American TV Series.
I weaned off coffee for a very long time, until recently that is.
Starbucks recently decided to open a branch at the foot of my office building making it my easiest way to gain access to caffein related beverages.
There is no one to blame but my own inability to resist the allure of coffee and its siren calls. And just like all addiction, its an unhealthy relationship to keep. Moderation is the key but it is far harder to accomplish than it seems. My inability to cull that urge is something of a black mark in my personal list of failures.
Why do I strive to control this part of my life?
why do I obsses my mind on this trivial addiction?
Because I believe that it is the little things that defines me as much as the big things. The fact that I should let the small stuff slide and only focus on the important things sounds like an excuse for me to get out of doing what is right. Doing the right thing is as important as the "Important Ones". And I personally want to try living up to that simple Motto.
There are always things around us which will drag our attention away from the things we should be doing. The trick is learning how to say "LATER" to them.
Everything is saying to me this is going to be a very long and tiring battle. Of which every inch of victory will be hard fought and vigilantly guarded. I look forward to it.
