Okay...so my office as of late...aka Borders Bookstore. Okay...I spent enough money to give clean water to a small village in a third world country, buying soy (no less :( chai tea. So.. .I bring my own awesome tea and get their water for free and tip the barista $1. Works well. Bring my own rocking snacks too. Here is what I just started drinking.
Think-O2® promotes mental performance* by combining herbs traditionally used to enhance memory function.* The use of gotu kola, lemon balm, and rosemary to improve mental clarity and memory is supported by traditional use.* Think-O2® is a refreshingly aromatic blend of herbal tastes – slightly bitter, sweet, and spicy with mint.
It rocks. Not sure if a placebo is going on or if it really works, but either way I am happy with my concentration! I am kidding, I know it's the tea. I recommend it for those who have trouble focusing or for moms who have to mange to produce one hour of focused work in 15 minutes of actual time.
I digress.... I have been delving deeply into my spiritual practices. This has me withdrawing from a lot of people in my life. I am not becoming a hermit, I am just sensitive right now to every one else's crap and drama. I don't want to deal actually. As a result, this "me" time is being awesomely spent moving forward in some areas in my life.
I have been taking care of Kennedy for so long... six years to be exact. Putting dreams and goals on the back burner for her. I would do it all over again, but now (thank goddess) she is progressively getting better (take away a few setbacks), I am supercharged.
I am finding answers to life's questions on my yoga mat. I can't afford to go to the studio across town that I would love to go to. I've created on studio in the front of my bedroom. And everyday on my mat--whether it be a 8 minute or 60 minute practice-- I open my heart to the grace of God and miracles are revealed.
I have been studying the Bhagavad Gita. I am Arjuna...open and listening. Though I am ready for my battle. Anybody else out there battling their way back into a healthy, happy life? Forging a new way? Maybe something different from what you thought you'd be doing or how you thought you'd be living?
I have a mug from the hospital where I lived with my daughter all those long weeks. It says, "Life is all about how you handle Plan B." I drink tea from it everyday. As I do from my PSU Children's Hospital Mug. They are daily reminders of just how difficult life was such a short time ago. I am happy to move forward. Happy to be inspired.
What's inspiring you.
In light and love,
