In the past two months I have moved 3 times. Been to two stores and now hiring and training for one more opening just at the end of February. It’s been a ride! But would not wish for anything better.
I guess that’s the beauty of it - meeting all these people, going through all these experiences and learning through all of that. It’s not always beautiful or even close to that as it may seem, but that’s what life is about. It’s about being strong with whatever comes your way and growing through what you’re going through.
Luckily I will be settling down in Lincoln for a little while now. It’s my second time here and I am enjoying this big time so far - already managed to meet some inspiring people. Visited @madamewaffle today, as I’ve heard some good words about it, this place is also in the UK Coffee Guide as a must visit in Lincoln. Bruce, who served me, is so passionate about coffee, that we could not stop talking about it and it’s gifts. He served me some amazing Guatamalan Pilot coffee, and made sure I tried one of his favourites - Coffee Collective from Bolivia. Him being so kind and passionate about coffee even more than I am, he borrowed me “The World Atlas of Coffee” written by James Hoffmann itself. Took my eyes from the book just to share this with you.
Probably what I want to say is keep hustling for what makes you wake up in the morning. Please please don’t waste your time on something that only gives you a paycheque and nothing more. Our time here is so limited that dedicating it for money, somebody else’s view on how you’re supposed to live or just some sort of stereotype you’re pushed to follow is just not right. Don’t get me wrong - money is important to support you but nothing more than that. Do what makes you so excited you can’t stop. And everything else will come to you in time. Just enjoy the ride. ➰
By the way - please support my new store! Like our page on Facebook - Starbucks Lincoln Drive Thru 🚙☕️ Would really appreciate it!
