Well hello, how lovely of you to join me. Grab your cuppa & get comfy & reflect with me for awhile.
My choice for our time together is an unusual herbal tea, made from branches of a shrub & bean pods.
This tea has its origins in South Africa
Made from the branches of the native Rooibos shrub, which is apparently a member of the legume family.
To enhance it’s flavor, Vanilla, which essence has been derived from the bean pods of the Vanilla Orchid, originating in Mexico, has been added.
I normally have this at night, being naturally caffeine free I can enjoy it without fear of adding to nocturnal alertness!
It is interesting how two entirely different plants from different locations of the world create such a comforting & soothing blend!
We need comforting & soothing at times, don’t we?
Life can get pretty tough & awfully wearisome even in the best of lives.
These visitors took up residency without my permission, let me introduce you to them; Fibromyalgia, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis & Celiac disease.
These residents do not create a harmonious blend for this hostess, they are rather demanding!
Although, I’m determined to rise to the daily challenge of their demands!
I’m learning to work within my new limitations, as shared in Knowing your body’s capacity, aiming to live my best life but weariness still comes.
This can become a negative experience if I allow it to…
I can either focus on the daily pain, fatigue, brain fog & weariness or I can focus on the positives in my life.
Those being the joys that I can still experience; the love I have in my life & the beautiful area I live in.
With everything I love in God’s natural environment.
The delight & time I now have to experience the little but meaningful things to me, such as a comforting cup of tea & tasty treat with you my friend.
The choice is ours you see, we can either focus on the negatives in our life or identify the positives & focus upon those!
What positive aspects can you focus upon in your life today?
Until next time,
You’re most welcome to join me in The Reading Nook
