January ~ December 2019
The process of renewal
Hope your January is going well and your new year's intentions are on tract.
The last of the family members and friends have left after the Holidays and the house is quiet and back to normal. We had my daughter, her husband, and my two granddaughters from Tennessee, as well as good friends from Denmark with their two adult children, their spouses and their 3 small children, plus my two grandsons that live here, had to stay over too since their cousins were in town. It was a full house from mid December to the first week of January, none stop energy. Thankfully everyone pitched in so I never felt the burden of playing hostess. Well, maybe one night when I cooked dinner for everyone and no one pitched in to clean the dishes. The next morning I clearly stated, "The cook doesn't clean!"
I've been on a renewal path since October, purging, organizing, clearing out the old, both at my house and the teashop. I tell you it feels amazing. I was ahead of 90% of all my projects. The house and teashop were decorated before the guests arrived. A huge major project, my closet had a major overhaul. I got a new home office setup thanks to my husband. I now have more storage space so everything has a place.
Creating new habits is time sensitive...you have to be ready to change. You can't force change, it has to be something you want and are ready to do. I have an affirmation, the ultimate outcome of establishing a new habit, make it automatic, automatic becomes subconscious, then lasting change happens.
Did you know that Tea at 1024 turns 20 this year? That's a milestone worth sharing. I'm in the process of preparing Tea at 1024 for the next decade. When I look back on all the years, the journey has been amazing and you have been a part of it as well. We're working on new things at Tea at 1024, so stay tuned.
The process is of creating new habits and renewal are ongoing and I hope you're making incremental steps to your desired outcome. May this year find you ready for some major changes in your personal, business and spiritual life.
See you at teatime,
Journaling with Vertellis Chapters
Many of you know that I'm big into journaling and have been writing since I was seventeen.
I found the most amazing journal called Vertellis Chapters
With Vertellis Chapters you are given the opportunity to open up the lines of communication with yourself. It is the perfect tool that will teach you how to live life more consciously and become more positive in your day-to-day activities. Taking time for yourself is an important and extremely valuable activity but, unfortunately, something that is often neglected in our busy, often stressful, lives, but Vertellis Chapters makes it easy. It's part of my morning routine.
Regular 24.99, I'll have it on SALE at 20% off this month. They should be in the teashop at the end of January. Let me know if you'd like me to hold a copy for you.
