It's official, I have caffeine detoxed. What a hard journey it was (again). I have no shame admitting I'm a coffee lover. I love everything about it, the pleasure in journey to find a perfect new cup some hidden place in the city, sitting with a good friend or a book and relaxing over a warming cup, the first cool sip and the way the sugar crunches in a hot summer day iced version, everything...except the side affects.
Caffeine like to play major tricks on me. Making my moods and energy levels spiral. Then, after a tedious work week where I stay up to ungodly hours working there's the dependency that develops, no bueno in my book. Running a business, working on my writing career, and being a soon to be (4 days!) single mom I need to be running 100%, 24/7.
So, I took last week and kicked the caffeine out and welcome the more centered balanced body back. I'm always shocked at how good I feel in the morning when I haven't had any caffeine in my veins for at least a week, I feel calm, awake, and centered.... worth the sacrifice. So it's farewell to my good friend, you're nowreserved for special occasions and over night drives, you will be missed.
