Quiet time with a good cup of tea can be so refreshing. Good for the mind and good for the soul. I would like to thank the creative genius(es) who thought to include inspirational thoughts directly on tea boxes and bags. It is like a thoughtful reminder of the importance of taking that time for yourself.
It is easy to take a cup of coffee on the road with you, but herbal tea just doesn’t travel well. It sits, it simmers, it needs time to percolate and flow into the water. And so we do as well. Sit, simmer, percolate our thoughts and simply relax. Lately I’ve been taking the time to sit with a relaxing cup of tea before going to my studio to paint or journal. I find that the creative process flows more freely when I take that little break first.
My most recent cup of tea shared this message with me, “You must know that you can swim through every change of tide.” It was exactly what I needed to hear. So again, thank you tea people!
