All Alone At The Local Cafe This Morning For Breakfast….And I Like It.

I have an appointment this morning but it was one of those mornings when I was ready to rock and roll like an hour and a half before I needed to be. I got tired of looking at the clock, out the window,  so I decided to go early, and sit down in the cafe nearby my appointment. It’s a quaint and very nice place with cherrywood floors, art lined walls and fresh baked pies.

It’s owned and run by a Jewish family, who happen to all be there and working the place. It is a neat place, I snapped a pic of one if the corners to show you.  

With all the nice things and friendly faces, good food and all, I still felt something was missing. For a while I could not pinpoint it, but then it struck me . A few things are missing. 

1- Drama


3- Complaining 

The things that I was missing were things that often occur when people get together with unstructured time on their hands. I liked it. I didn’t have that uneasy feeling you get when a person is doing their best to gossip with you-  but your not biting. That gut feeling of being uncomfortable when a person is trying to get a fire started so the group can establish some amount of drama.

What started out as a lonely,  poor me -having breakfast alone morning, has concluded as a total hour of pure peace. Just nothing but enjoying my breakfast. Its a shame I noticed it. It seems like it should be the other way around -a rarity to NOT be at peace in the company of others.

I have a great desire to help others make it through times that I myself have had to navigate. I understand the process, the pain,and the support needed. I, and the rest of my team all have both the formal education to coach others but more importantly we also have the life experience which allows us to relate to all the phases and hurdles that come with recovering from issues like depression, addiction, domestic violence, spiritual confusion, and much more. I feel that the combination of formal training and life experience allows us to meet those we help every point of need- in a real way.
