I always longed for one simple
thing, to sit alone in a Starbucks coffee shop and spent some time with myself
. One may frown, but I never done it so far. I
have always been there with my family. One
day I told about my desire to my hubby. He told me that I could easily do that,
when my son is in school. That was true. Actually, I had been thinking for a
few months, but I never went there, though it was very convenient to me,
because there was one Starbucks near to his school. So, I could go there and
spent some time before picking him from school, but
somehow I never got around doing it.
Since past few days my legs had been
paining intolerably .so, when my hubby suggested going there on previous day ,I did not have the strength. In the morning my hubby
again told me to go there. After both of them left home, I gave a little
thought. First I thought to drop my plan to go, but later
I decided to go. It was already 10:30, and my son’s school was going to be over
at 12:30. So there was not much time in my hand, still I decided to go. Around
11:15 I reached there. I took one cold café-mocha and sat at a corner table.
When I entered there, as usual, all the tables were full. Somehow I managed to
get one table, but the place was very nice. I could see the road from there.
Anyway, I took my journal and a book with me. Past few days I didn’t write . So
I decided to pen down all the stored up thoughts.
Truly there was mystery in the environment. When I write something at home, I often cannot find words, but here words flowed in. I
didn’t stumble anywhere in my writing. After finishing my journal, I started
reading the book. It was so easy to concentrate there. I always face difficulty
to concentrate in reading at home. Now I could understand why people go to
Starbucks to study. Previously I used to think,’ why do
these people sit here? Don’t they have place at home to study? Is it
really easy to concentrate? ‘What was the magic behind? I wondered. Anyway, it
was already 12:30; my hubby picked him from school and called me to get ready
for home. Thus ended a beautiful outing to Starbucks .I
enjoyed the special ME time to the fullest.
