I have yet to finish the Fifty Shades trilogy, but I’m close. It’s difficult to get through more than one chapter at a time.
Just as you might think, the books pose questions and ideas that may never have crossed your mind before. Or perhaps they have, but they’ve been dismissed quickly. Or not….
The last book in particular briefly mentions a topic that got my wheels turning. I began thinking about what I do. It occurred to me that my current morning choice is totally opposite of what I enjoyed as a new bride. And I wonder when and why I changed my mind.
Early on, I liked to wait until after I’ve had coffee to do it, and I would scoff at the idea of doing it before. In fact I would make fun of anyone who actually wanted to do it before coffee. It seemed like total nonsense to me.
But as the years past, my feelings began to change. Somewhere along the way I became a believer in doing it before coffee. I am now to the point where it is the first thing I want to do when I wake.
And it’s so gratifying from beginning to end. Sometimes I want it to go on forever. But like all good things, it must come to an end. I rinse off, then head to the kitchen to start my morning java.
Funny how coffee is so much more enjoyable after I’ve had my little tryst.
I’m quite sure not every one shares my feelings. Heck, I didn’t even have these feelings until I’d been married a while. But since I’ve been in favor of both ways, I am no longer critical of others’ choices.
So go ahead and be honest……
