5 Ways Coffee & Pie Can Help You Through Your Break Up
What truly helped me and inspired me throughout my divorce process was pie and coffee. I found comfort in a place all my own for the very first time. A place that didn't have unwanted memories attached. A place I could grow my sense of self, my tummy and my creativity!
Here are five things that you can discover to begin finding the new you and the beginning of the healing process.
#100cupsofcoffee? More to come on that!}! Pie to be specific. I found the cozy, adorable and chic cafe and pie shop Republic Of Pie in North Hollywood, California right before I began my divorce process. Having a little bit of a treat each week gave me something to look forward to, made me happy and warmed my soul. Plus it was the beginnings of a place I could call my own.
Republic of Pie or any coffee shop that calls to you, will have a sense of community. The same people come on a their own schedule, you begin to become a regular and known by name by the baristas. I was no different. Everyone has their pie, coffee and Mac Laptops out. We all look the same, writing away, but we are all different and it is fun to be able to recognize the regulars and become one yourself. It can give you a new place of belonging in a time of insecurity and self doubt. Don't be afraid to reach out and make new friends. You are going to need them.
As soon as I left my husband, I got my wild Tinder-ing out of the way, but that lead to a massive stroke of creative inspiration! My 100 Cups Of Coffee Instagram series began last July, ended a few months later and then evolved into a memoir, which I am working hard on to this day! I've never felt more creative or inspired in all of my life. Because now I'm doing it for me!
Though my big break up happened over a year ago and a few mini break ups since then, I always held on to the light at the end of the tunnel. I stuck close to my friends and finally discovered the city I lived in and fell in love with it!
Ocean Eyes. Every day, every text, every adventure I have felt more happy than I ever thought I could have. Here's to a bright future. Good luck to you and the adventures that are to come!
