With everything being so in demand, even our jobs have become frantic in order to provide instant or quick results for such a consumer-driven society. People have become quite jaded.
Let's go back to the basics, your private circle, your family, and your friends. We sometimes forget they exist and even neglect our duties. We can start with our daily rituals to mend strained relationships, as there is no shortcut for this.
What are the simple things we fail to recognize?
There are five different love languages, and on this blog, we'll share what those are and how simple gestures can mend the heart.
Acts of Service
There are some people who value acts of service. Making a cup of coffee for your partner every morning counts as a small gesture. So he or she can wake up to the smell of a freshly brewed pot of coffee.
Pour the coffee into their favorite cup next to a plateful of hearty breakfast to start their day as they sit at the table, ready for breakfast.
This simple act of kindness that you'll do consistently and without fail every day can make a world of difference to someone.
Words of Affirmation
At times, you'll meet people who receive love the best in the form of words of affirmation. They need to hear you remind them that you appreciate and value them.
Reciprocate the love that was given to you by complimenting them on the coffee they brewed for you.
Hearing you compliment their coffee means you appreciate them and value them. That small act can mean the world to them.
In other cases, physical touch is a person's love language. A small gesture of holding hands, resting your head on your partner's shoulder, giving a hug, or even giving a kiss on the forehead goes a long way.
As you have breakfast, it starts drizzling outside, and that warm, hot cup of coffee continues to warm your hands. The smell of coffee and heat coming from the mug is like receiving your partner's love for you in that single cup.
Touch your partner's hand and thank them for making you a delicious breakfast and a hot cup of coffee that's perfect for a cold morning.
Spending time together is a bit challenging because of hectic schedules, but for someone whose love language is quality time, every moment counts.
Your presence is enough to reaffirm your feelings for each other. Spending quality time with your partner, even if it's just another typical morning, is important.
Take this time to discuss your plans for the day over coffee. Pick each other's brain for suggestions, advice, or to have a good laugh.
The time you spend together before starting your busy days separately can influence how you face challenges in the future.
Lastly, receiving gifts is about more than just showing love or meeting material needs.
It's about thinking about what someone needs or deserves to have. Then, you're there to fulfill that for them. That's love.
A lovely way to show a coffee lover how you feel is to give them mini cups of different kinds of tasty barista-quality coffee.
Your partner can bring them to work and be ready to face everything that comes their way.
What does coffee bring to your relationships?
May it be for your special someone, your friend, or your family, coffee brings something that strengthens your bond.
If you're having a hard time expressing your love to anyone, have a conversation over a cup of coffee and see what happens.
Coffee brings us all together, and we can use it to express our emotions.
Your love for coffee is meant to be shared with your loved ones.
