Thoughtful Thursdays: A Cup of Tea?

One of my favorite rides as a youngster was the teacup ride. I loved to grab that center wheel and spin it as fast as I could. Standing in line, I would even wipe my tiny hands on my clothes several times... so they'd be nice and dry for the perfect grip! My main goal was to spin out of control, as fast as I could... walking off all dizzy and disoriented. Hmmm... that sounds an awful lot like some parties in my college and young adult years. Could this ride be considered underage drinking? Okay... back to my point... that is if there was a point. Ummm... errr... uhhhh... oh yeah...

Spinning out of control!

How many of you out there feel that life is just passing by way too fast? I know I do. Sheesh... it was just "Happy New Year!" and now it's almost the end of January. And as much as I loved spinning out of control as a child, it doesn't really have the appeal it once did now that I am an adult. So let's just take a deep breath here (go ahead... 4 counts in.... 4 counts out) and relax for a moment.

Grab a cup of tea or your favorite beverage and just love every minute of the preparation. Don't just think of it as a means to an end.... enjoy the whole process. Gathering your supplies. Grabbing your favorite mug. Collecting all the ingredients, utensils, appliances and such. Watch that water boil. It won't take long, but it will feel like an eternity. Pour your beverage. Then sit down somewhere nice and comfy and sip....

  1. Yes! We need to consciously slow it down wherever we can. Tea is a good slow down. So is washing dishes for me, since I love water so much.
    May your day have some sweet slow moments in it, Sweetie!
