BLISSFUL AT BLISS CAFE
While sipping coffee with my friends, I realized that what matters most in life are just sitting right in front of me. I realized that what matters most are the people who value me and those I genuinely consider as friends. Sometimes I overlook the blessings because I have always had this mindset of "destination happiness" like I have always had this notion that what is right in front of me is never enough and I tend to always want things to be better. There's nothing wrong with wanting more but sometimes this mindset consumed me that I overlook the blessings in life.
Just recently, probably late last year, a coffee shop recently opened near our place here in Talisay City. I was unable to visit the place last year because I was preoccupied with schoolworks and when I had some free time, supertyphoon Odette wrecked our community. I realized that during these unprecedented times, most business establishments under the hospitality industry especially small businesses are at risk.
Since the coffee place is strategically located to where we live, @asasiklause and I together with some other friends usually do some work or just simply lounge around at the coffee place. As for me, I tend to get lonely when I am alone at coffee shops so whenever my friends are with me I feel much blissful because I have company with me. Even if we are busy doing our own thing, it's truly a wonderful feeling to be with people who truly matter.
Aside from spending time together at Bliss Cafe, we also like to frequent the place to show support because we truly believe that during these trying times we only have each other. To somehow alleviate the economic impact of the pandemic and the recent crisis brought about by the storm, we should help these small businesses survive in the best way that we can. Since businesses are also adapting to the current trends such as new ways of service delivery through applications online, we could still show support even within the comforts of our own home.
Being at Bliss Cafe fills my heart with so much bliss because I get to be with my friends while indulging a good cup of coffee paired with dessert. From what I mentioned earlier, I realized that the best things in life are just here sitting right under my nose. I do not need to spend a fortune to live my best life. I just need to appreciate what's around me because time is fleeting and we do not know what tomorrow brings. The future is uncertain but what's certain is the fact that happiness is always where we are.
If you would want to visit the place, it's located at Barangay Dumlog in Talisay City. So that it would be easier for you to navigate, you may message me and I will gladly accompany you if ever I have nothing on my plate. Thank you so much for dropping by! Let's grab some coffee soon here at Bliss Cafe!
