  • After finishing the usual chores around the house, I sat down to check my emails this afternoon, and read about this lovely experiment of sharing a moment in the day.

    I felt a strange sense of connection, with the person sending the email and also all those who would be responding to the request of joining in the experiment. Odd, how something so little...like a tiny moment in a day can connect us all together...a smile emerged with that thought, as I was curious to read the new stories and see what everyone was up to, along with thinking of what I'll be doing that I can share, that could sound super cool.

    Do I write about how extremely useful or not so useful a person I am on this planet...

    Naaa, I'll do something creative...like a crafty project...

    Or maybe go out for a walk to explore the world and come home with a story to share...

    Thoughts...thoughts...and more thoughts polluted my brain. Some made me excited, some made me dull...some sounded awful and some were just plain fun!
    Ignoring them all I decided to take a minute and focus, on what I am doing rather than planning to do, in the day...

    As I looked down, I was holding a warm cup of green tea, in my hands.

    In that moment, I learnt how I get so trapped in all that I want to or can do in the the future...I totally forget, the simple pleasure of being myself and enjoying whatever it is that I am doing right NOW. With that in mind, I focused how my hands were feeling the friendly warmth of the cup, the yellowish colour of the tea was shinning and smiling at me, as I sipped pure joy in that moment, and that is what I share with you from my day, with you today.

    I call that moment BE YOU TEA (beauty),meaning, 'Feel the beautiful moment by BEing YOU, as you sip your TEA.'
