Day 4 Meditation Moment - The Spice of Life


 
 
It's so easy to get in a rut, a daily routine that becomes more deeply entrenched as time goes by. So it's always a nice surprise when something pops up to change things up a bit. 

 
Spicely Organics’ mission is to ethically source ingredients from all over the world in the most sustainable manner possible. And their variety of spices and teas is enough to spice up anyone's routine.  In this small, beautiful package was a selection of 6 unique tea  blends. One for each day of the week, and on the 7th day I can have my favorite of the bunch!
 

 
Yesterday, I began with Jasmine Cacao, an earthy-sweet concoction of green tea, jasmine and cacao nibs. With an almost coffee-like scent, it somehow balances bitter, floral and sweet notes in perfect harmony.
 

 
This morning, I'm starting the day with Organic Earl Grey. Earl Grey is the most popular blend in the United States, and this one does not disappoint. A strong black tea blend with just the perfect touch of bergamot!
 
 
Variety and spice can come in so many forms, whether choice of tea, wearing a different color, trying a new hairstyle, adding a new vegetable to the dinner plan, or even driving a different route to work. It awakens the senses and makes the moment more intentional.
 
Today I intend to try something new or different and encourage the kids to try it too. Let's explore the spectrum of life. We just don't know what we may be missing!
