I've decided to do a "Year of Tea Parties" and blog about it. I've never committed to this many tea parties (one/month) in a year, so it is a big deal for me. Some of the tea events will be fancy and with many people, and others will be with only myself for company. Each will have a theme and will, I hope, encourage you to have your own tea celebrations. My first tea, in just a couple of weeks, is called the "Relax and Recycle" tea. More to come on that! The February tea will be a celebration near Valentine's Day. Instead of focusing on romantic love, I want to celebrate friendships and show that V-day is for everyone.
In 2008, I will focus on cultivating my practice of Gratitude. (In our visioning activity, I drew flowers and trees and the word Gratitude in big bubble letters.) I want to spend 2008 expanding my conscious appreciation. I want to take time every day to be grateful, and not just in a generic way of being thankful for health, my job, etc. I mean specifics in detail - like how grateful I am today, right in this moment, for the snowy view from my window as the sun rises.
I am grateful for this blog, what it offers me in freedom and creativity, and for my readers. Happy New Year to you!
