Enjoying tea and working on my top 25 items on my bucket list. Do you have a list?!! Well, why not?! It is fun to dream. I have been able to knock many things of other lists- I learned to knit, I rode an elephant in Thailand, I wrote and published my first book...actually four books and the fifth is ready to be published. I also have been to my first NASCAR race, I climbed a coconut tree in Africa, I've skinny dipped (or chunky dunked) in a lake, I started a tea blog, and some other cool things. Dream, dream big!!!
Or you can start out small or start by putting others first. The items on your list don't even have to cost money. How about laughing everyday, writing down one blessing of your day, or encouraging one new person day. This year I am working on reading through the Bible in chronological order - it doesn't cost a thing, and it's a super interesting way to read through the Bible.

Drink some tea and enjoy the things and people in your life, don't take them for granted. This is not about not being satisfied with your life- but challenging yourself to be better and make the most of life. Don't live on your couch and enjoy life through books and the TV. Get out and experience life!
