Well we finally got to March, and while it felt like it wouldn’t get here, it got here, and got here quick.
This is life now. As we get older, it feel like things are accelerating. While that might be true, (and no this is not some rant about space and time, well maybe), everything is relative. We’re all from the same creative source, and we all come from abundance.
I want to believe that for me as well. I can believe it for everyone else, but lately doubt has crept in my life. Maybe it’s the cold weather, maybe it’s life changes happening to me and the one’s closest to me that have an direct or indirect impact on me.
As happy as many of my posts have been, I was due for some turbulence. And this is where I am currently. As I write this, I could go up, down, or stay the course. My feelings, as well as your feelings, are fickle. They’re fleeting, and can come and go at a moment’s notice, like it just did right there.
When times can be tough, and I don’t feel like my best, I must take a look around and look at myself, and realize I have much to be thankful and grateful for. It’s easier done than said. Yes I did just say that. Again I need to tell myself that.
So I always look up the sky…
My gratitude for this post comes from the fact that this tea was given to me as a gift. And specifically this was Christmas gift, including the mug, that I was only able to receive a few weeks ago. It comes from dear friends, along with myself, being busy with other plans and things just coming up. But making time for the people you love is of the upmost importance. So I’m thankful to say, that time was made. And more has been made since with these wonderful people.
This most wonderful tea comes from one of my now new favorites, Pukka.
I wrote about Pukka a month ago, based on a brand new discovery of this tea. And this is how life can be so wonderful. I wrote about Pukka, not knowing I would be presented with another gem from them…
The Turmeric Glow is as close to perfect as its going to be for calming, for peace, for joy, for abundance, for happiness, and all those things we strive for.
The combination of turmeric, lemon, cardamom, and green tea is almost like a throwback to how a tea should taste. I’ve always said the less ingredients the better.
And wouldn’t you know it, there’s licorice. And if anything, the licorice is so understated that it adds just enough to enhance this tea, but doesn’t take away from it.
Just because you might not taste it, or see it, doesn’t mean it’s there.
Lack of evidence, doesn’t mean evidence of lack. Think about that one for a minute.
I had this tea in a different setting. And a change of scenery means everything…
I sat outside in my friends’ backyard, with nothing but nature, nothing but their beautiful dogs (they didn’t make any of these pictures, but maybe in a future post), and nothing with the silence of my thoughts, which were up, down, around, and all over the place like a roller coaster.
But after a few sips, all felt right. If it’s a placebo then so be it. If it’s the fact that sipping tea is one of those simple joys that will always make me happy, then so be it. If it was the flavors, then well you get the idea.
Here’s more on why so many of us love Turmeric.
It’s all of those things, maybe none of those things, and a lot of those thing unseen, unspoken, and unheard that make this or any experience what it is. Ultimately it falls upon us to make the best of it.
I just need to keep telling myself that.
This is just the beginning. There’s more love of Pukka coming.
To find out more about Pukka Herbs, here is a list of all their teas (including Turmeric Glow), their mission, a section on our well being, and, frequently asked questions, and, a little something inspirational.
Their teas are available at Wegmans, and hopefully a retailer near you.
Peace Be With You. Spring is coming…
