No, not that one.
And no way am I elegant enough for this one:
And, while I wouldn’t turn down an invitation to this next one,
the tea party I joined isn’t about politics or beautiful china. Indirectly, I guess it does have to do with the Mad Hatter–i.e., how I get when I devote too much
to worries, anticipating the worst, nursing grudges, etc. The more TEA I devote to stuff like that, the bigger and badder those things become in my life. Conversely, when I devote TEA to positive things like writing, friendships/relationships, even something as mundane as reclaiming the wilds of my desk so I can actually function, the results are positive, encouraging, and give a welcome sense of accomplishment. Like so many things in life, it’s all in the way I choose to use it.
I can’t claim credit for TEA. You’ll find it all over the internet and in self-help books, but I stumbled across it quite recently and immediately grabbed it for my mantra.
TEA can be yours, too, for just $9.99 plus postage and handling! (Kidding, just kidding.) Seriously, though, take it for a spin and see how it works for you.
Take care, all!
