Sitting at the end of a long table at Starbucks, alone

I don’t come here very often, only when I have time to kill. I have a meeting in an hour and thought I could use some really good coffee.

So I drove up, pulled in, and ordered my coffee. The last time I was here, the coffee was GREAT. But maybe they messed up my order or something this time because it is anything but GREAT. It’s more like… d e c e n t . I paid way too much for this decent cup of coffee.

I came in hoping this coffee would give me some energy for the day and motivation for this meeting. But it did not.

And now I sit at a table, just next to a long table of people collaborating, working together, and sitting in pairs. And I sit alone. Not quite at their table but looking directly at them.

In all honesty, this is how I have felt recently. I am almost done with High School and feel as if I am still walking the hallways but am on my way out. I feel like in every area of my life, I’m in a transition period. Not quite where I want to be but looking right at it. Not quite at their table but looking directly at them.

It’s not a bad feeling. I knew this would happen. I came to this Starbucks to kill time, alone, not with anyone and not planning on joining a table with a bunch of people who didn’t even notice I came in. But it is weird.

You have probably noticed that I have not blogged in a while. And I am so sorry about that. I haven’t known what to say or what to share with you all. While a lot of things are happening in my life, a lot has stayed the same.

It’s a feeling similar to this scene at Starbucks. There is so much I want to do yet the hour I have here at Starbucks isn’t enough time. There are so many things going on and that I want to say, yet I don’t have the words to say it.

But that is by no means a reason to stop, to throw in the towel, or to forget about that work I have done. No, rather it is a reason to keep going and keep pushing. Because the sun WILL rise and the clouds WILL roll back. That is the truth we have seen evidence of over and over and over again.

I have no idea if any of you needed to hear that today. But, I believe one day, if not today, you will need to be reminded of that. We all need to be reminded of truth sometimes.

The sun WILL rise and the clouds WIll roll back

The sun WILL rise and the clouds WIll roll back

The sun WILL rise and the clouds WIll roll back

XOXO, The Christian Prepster

    Lovely post. I’ve had a similar feeling of limbo recently as I’m finishing work and on the way to university. There’s something oddly reassuring but lonely during these periods. But as you said so nicely at the end, things will change and won’t last forever. Thanks for a lovely post
