It’s the wineglass for me. If you have been following me for the last few months or really since lock down started, you would know that I pretty much drink everything in a wineglass. I drink everything including, but certainly not limited to, cold brew, smoothies, water, juice, whatever I’m feeling at the moment. It’s usually met with a bit of shock, not because people are mad, but because I think people can’t tell if I’m serious or not. I’m serious.
The reason we seek after more and new so much is because we’ve gotten bored with the current. Being at home for an extended period of time has absolutely transformed so much as we know it, but since we’re at home more, why not do things to make it more enjoyable? The reason I have chosen a wineglass to accompany me on my elevated at home experience is because whenever I think about wine or my experiences with it, it has been out, it has been over a meal at one of my favorite restaurants and I’ve decided that I’ll recreate that experience at home.
Now more than ever we are spending more time at home; when everything was “normal” unless you already worked at home or were a stay at home mom or wife, we barely had time to be home. So home needed to be shaken up a little bit and for me that included drinking my regular every day drinks in a wineglass. All of that said I’m sharing 3 reasons I drink everything out a wineglass.
Drinking From A Wineglass Gives Me A Mood Boost
The saying “focus on what you can control, not what you can’t” or however it goes, really rings true here in my opinion. I mean be in a funk and not feeling it, but I have control over the decision of sitting in my feelings or doing something to boost mood. Having my smoothie in a wine glass is such a mood boost. My smoothie is so good and so well made that I think it deserves to be served in a wineglass. Not only does it deserve to be in a wineglass, I deserve to drink it out of one.
We have been conditioned to act and behave a certain way, so doing things out of the norm is hard to grasp, but the way I see it is, who decided that wine glasses were only for wine. That’s just what we know them to be designated and used for. Whenever I sit outside, enjoy nature and have my cold brew, smoothie or water, my mood is instantly lifted. I’m experiencing my drinks my drinking them from a wineglass.
Improve My At Home Dining Experience
We’re still getting the hang out outdoor dining in LA, there are some places people have gone to, but the only time we actually dine out(side) was in Indianapolis. Everything else has been cooking or to go. My omelette with pepper jack cheese and avocado tastes better when my drink is in a wineglass. I’m intentionally choosing to elevate my at home experience.
You literally have the opportunity to transform your at home eating experience, by simply doing something different than you usually do. If you normally use paper plates, which we do, no judgement, switch it up and use actual plates. It makes a difference.
Getting Use Outside of Special Occasions
Wine as we know it, isn’t only for special occasions, but overall when you think about when people are “traditionally” consuming wine, it’s a special event, a date, there is usually a reason we’re having wine. If I waited for special occasions my wine glasses would be sitting like they normally do. Being alive has taken on a whole new meaning in 2020; it’s always been a blessing, but if for some reason it was taken for granted prior to 2020, I’m finding every reason to celebrate now.
I don’t want to wait until something “good” or “extravagant” happens. I want my morning to feel glam and luxurious daily and something as simple as drinking out of a wineglass allows me to have that experience OUTSIDE OF special occasions.
We can’t sit around and wait for life to happen to us, it is up to us just as much to go out there and make something happen. Don’t like it, change it. Want to try something different, something off the beaten path, go for it. We want to be accepted and liked so bad that we aren’t willing to choose our own individual preferences, we aren’t willing to do something different because we care what someone else will say. EVERY time someone asks or comments “in a wineglass?” or “is that a wineglass?” I stand fully committed in my decision and love to share with others why I do it.
Maybe drinking smoothies and cold brew from a wineglass isn’t your get down, but I encourage you to find out what your thing is because life is to be enjoyed; at this point what are you waiting for?
What is something that you do that people may find interesting or unique? What made you start doing it?
