Over a year ago, I discovered a coffee shop tucked away in Old Town Croydon. Little did I know that this place would become a haven, the place I go to when I need to smile.
In the past few months I’ve come to love this space. It’s my Happy Place. Many a post has been written here. Countless almond milk mochas have been beautifully crafted just for me. But even more than that, connections have been made. Real face-to-face connections that I’ll treasure long after I’ve left.
As the days draw closer to me leaving, I feel a sense of sadness that I won’t have this space in South Africa. Yes, there may be another coffee shop I’ll go to where I’ll feel home but it won’t be the same.
Now I need to find a Happy Place within.
