I love preparing my morning coffee; not just because it is a comforting routine that I know will make me feel happier and more awake at its completion, but also because I am somewhat required to define myself.
Faced with a cabinet full of coffee mugs, I ask myself which one best suits my personality for the day. I feel peaceful with my blue pattern mug. Stylish with my green diva mug. Silly with my crazy faces mugs. Domesticated and down-to-earth with the Zabar’s mug. I know I’m stressed---though maybe self-effacingly so---when I reach for my old roommate’s “OMG” mug.
Do you have anything like this in your morning routine?
