I don’t want to just talk the talk; I want to walk the walk. Would you like to join me?
It’s time to take a moment and be completely up front. I always talk about treating yourself and taking a little bit of time to get away from the busy-ness that is life, I believe that it is so important to do, BUT I don’t always take my own advice.
I don’t always get the chance because, well…life. Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in everything that we need to do and everything that is going on, that we forget that we can’t do ANY of that if we don’t take care of ourselves.
The Cosy Book Shoppe is all about treating yourself with a cuppa whatever makes you happy and a book. Not only are we passionate about books and tea, but we are passionate about taking a moment away. We are passionate about going back to a time where you could go to a shoppe and sit down, read a book, drink your drink and not have to be surrounded by “life”.
We are all about letting you create that atmosphere in your own home, by selling items that help you “set the scene” for time away from “life”. However, it only works if you actually take that time.
The nice thing about drinking a cup of tea and reading is a book is it forces that feeling of slowing down, of taking a beat. You cannot (and probably don’t want to) speed your way through a book nor can you speed your way through drinking a cup of tea. Every moment of that cuppa and book is thoroughly enjoyed and when you are done, you’ve taken that time away from “life”.
I don’t know about anyone else, but after taking that little moment, I feel so much more refreshed. I’m ready to take back on life. I know I’m not alone in that feeling and I know lately I haven’t been able to really have a chance to get back to that place.
So, I want to do a challenge and have a regular time for all of us to take a little time out from life. Every Wednesday evening, I want us all to have a Cosy Night In. I picked Wednesday to make it a little mid week “pick me up” for all of us. We will start tomorrow night.
How will this work? This will mostly happen on Facebook and Instagram, where I will go live (or stories on Instagram) for just a little bit touching on what I’ll be drinking and reading and if there is anything special happening. I will put a short little post on hear detailing the same thing and you can partake in your own home! Make sure you are following me on Facebook and Instagram where the action will take place (The Cosy Book Shoppe on Facebook, Cosy Book Shoppe on Instagram) and join in!
