Need a Little Swirl?

This story is always a good reminder to not let myself become stagnant.coffee

The low rumble of the coffee shop slowly brought my mind to focus. I’d been reading at my table at Barnes and Noble for a while and picked up my cup of cafe mocha.  I noticed, as I took a drink, that most of the good stuff had settled at the bottom of my cup.  So I gently swirled it hoping the motion would wake the dormant spices that make the drink taste so good.

I drank again and noticed an immense difference.  A sweeter, richer, more potent sip excited my taste buds, causing my mind to think…

How often do I let my “spice” settle at the bottom?  Sometimes I allow the busyness of life to settle my passion, making me less effective.  I need a little swirl.  A little something to shake me up when sitting too long has caused me to become complacent.

But will I recognize this swirl for what it is?  Or will I complain that it’s just another suffering I have to walk through, trying not to get too shaken up, when that was the point in the first place…

What do you think?
