On Slowing Down

Early morning inspiration with tea

Early morning inspiration with tea

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis on which the earth revolves…
slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

I was greatly inspired this morning by this quote. One of those things that right after you read it, you know it was just what you needed to hear (well read).

I do at times drink my tea slowly and reverently, but not always. Sometimes life is hectic and chaotic, where my mind scatters away from the here and now. I’m then reminded to ground myself back into today, back into this moment. Into every single moment as they happen.

I’ve noticed that I’ve taken quite a few “tea” pictures over on Instagram… and apparently really enjoy my YogiTea. I’ll share some of them here. My ode to drinking tea slowly and reverently. Enjoying the present moment.
