Happy Monday. You may not hear that all too often. It seems Monday bears the brunt of the blahs for most people.
I’m happy to join many friends today as we embark on a new blog hop called “Live a Little,” the brainchild of a good friend, Katja with Skimbaco. With her encouragement, we’ll be sharing a little or a lot about how we choose to live life to the fullest in grand or tiny ways. All in the hopes to inspire others along the way. Mondays don’t have to be dreaded. They can and should be embraced.
Oh, I know not everyone looks at a Monday as a downer. There are the optimists that greet each day with a smile. I like to think I am one, most days.
So my little tip to share today? Drink fancy tea. Yep, that’s it. It can be a symbol for you to simply choose a drink you enjoy but may not allow yourself to have on a daily basis. I’m more of a tea drinker than a coffee junkie, although I do love the aroma of a good brew. For me, a fancy tea doesn’t have to be all flavored up. I like a good Earl Grey or breakfast blend. It can simply mean the tea bag is like a piece of art. The teacup might be out of the ordinary. The place you enjoy your cup of tea might be a out of the norm.
I present you with a fancy tea bag that caught my attention during a trip to Las Vegas. It was such a thing of beauty I had to take a picture of it before dunking in into the massive mug of hot water I was served. Ahhhh. I remember this morning well. I simply lingered with a newspaper and a wonderful view of a waterfall at an outdoor cafe inside the Wynn hotel. Simply drink it in.
Yes, it was likely the most money I’ve ever spent on a cup of tea and a croissant. But guess what? I lived a little. And I now cherish that moment in my timeline. Worth it, I’d say.
I’d love for you to share how you may have been inspired to live a little. Or tell me how you lived a little recently. We all need ideas!
