MAKE A DIFFERENCE: BUY A COFFEE
Coffee is everything. I start each and every day with a cup and man does it make me feel like I can conquer the world. It’s the smell, the taste, and the warmth that makes it such an amazing elixir. I have my favorite brands and have my perfect ratio of sugar to cream. I would call myself a coffee lover and I know many people start their day with a fresh cup of Joe also.
A coffee is such a small thing that can truly anyones day. So thats why I am encouraging you to buy a coffee for someone! It’s an easy and inexpensive way to spread a little love and make a difference. Here are a few ways you can surprise someone:
Stranger- Theres been a handful of times where I had a stranger pay for my Starbucks drink in the drive-thru. Every single time left me surprised and in awe by the kindness of a complete stranger. Its a small act of kindness that definitely made my day and lifted my mood. You can pay it forward too! Next time you are in the drive-thru line, let the cashier know you would like to pay for the drink of the person behind you. And who knows, your act of kindness might inspire that person to do the same for the car behind them.
Co-worker-Your co-workers almost become family after spending 40+ hours a week together. And that means you can often tell when they are stressed or going through a hard time. The next time you buy a coffee also purchase one for a co-worker who you want to show your appreciation towards or one that needs a little bit of encouragement. Your thoughtful gesture might just be the morale boost that the needed.
Homeless-I’ve mentioned multiple times now that it’s pretty chilly now. Most of us are fortunate to live in homes with heaters and have warm clothing for when we go outside. For a homeless person any source of heat they can get is important. A cup of coffee can help warm them up in the chilly temperatures. If you are grabbing a cup of coffee buy an extra and hand it to a homeless person outside.
Buying a coffee is something easy and inexpensive that you can do to make a difference!
