coffee conversations

Coffee with Ameena #15

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how this week I was looking through some of my old pictures when I was 15/16, in my first year of university, and I smiled at how I look nothing like what I used to look like then. I lived differently, loved differently, dressed differently, reacted differently. Funny how much we change within a short span of time.

The image on the right was when I was 15, the left was when I was 22.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how I am a believer that you don’t have to be who you’ve always been, you can change your thought, evolve, grow; and thats okay too.
If we were having coffee, I’d ask if you ever look at your old pictures and wonder where the old you is?

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how there is a channel I watch on YouTube called “Hello hunnay” and its hosted by Jeannie Mai. And last week, she talked about “body dysmorphia”. And it reminded me of weight loss journeys, and how sometimes, the problem with trying to lose the weight is the difficulty in knowing when to stop, or how to stop. I’m grateful for my circle who keep me in check.

If we were having coffee, I’d ask you if you wear your heart on your sleeves and your emotions as its accessories. Do you spread your sadness across your face and shoulder or do you garnish it with a smile? Do your bad days get the moments to be dwelt or do you embellish them with jokes and laughter? Do you take the time to cope with your feelings… do you brave it up cause you don’t have the time?

If we were having coffee, I’d ask you if you also look forward to our little dates. Where we try to forget our worries for a little bit, drowning them under mugs of black coffee, laugher, jokes. Remembering all the eccentricities of the week like how I got pooped on, bled on and peed on this week during my paediatric posting. How I have refused to attend my dentist appointment because the tooth has stopped aching and how I hope it won’t come bite me in my behind in the near future.

If we were having coffee, I’d remind you in the words of Peyton Sawyer- “If you don’t ask for something, you can’t expect for it to happen”. I hope this week, you get the courage to ask for the things you want, pursue the things you love, speak to whom desire and let the people you love know, you love them. I’d remind you that People aren’t mind readers. You cant expect someone to know, unless you have the courage to tell them.

On that note, wishing you a fabulous week filled with loads of Love, laughter and of course, coffee…

p.s you see that gorgeous pink lamp giving me light “literally and metaphorically”, you can get yours too on @soulunraveled_wordsandcraft. ❤️
