I remember the never ending days of sitting at my desk, feeling cut off from the world; wondering why the clock was moving so slow. Tick. Tock.
Do you ever find yourself with the afternoon crash, reaching for something sweet to get through your workday?
To pass the time, I remember taking a walk to refill my coffee ― for the third time, with extra pumpkin spice creamer. I would savor the sweet and spicy flavor, only to find myself wanting something more.
After searching for any spare change I could find, I found myself staring at the vending machine. Knowing there was nothing in there I really wanted, but I would settle on some salty pretzels, anyway, because what else.
After an hour, I would walk to the different departments, looking for someone to talk to, only to find them as miserable as I was.
Our addiction to the coffee cup and vending machine has nothing to do with those items; they only numb the pain from the real solution we are craving.
