Tea Bag

To the followers that continue to follow (and read) my blog - thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know I have been MIA for a while and am trying to get things back together. However, becoming a mother and losing my mother (in my home) have presented me with some very sad and lonely times. I know I have lots of people there for me but not many of them can understand how much these events have impacted me. Thanks to those who have been and continue to be there for me.

This was the message on my tea bag...what do you think? Is it true? Or is it a little over-dramatic?

One of my friends said she thinks it's true for my world, I definitely agree with that but above and beyond my world - I'm not so sure.

It definitely makes you look at everything differently if it is true...let me know what you think!


  1. You have my sympathy on the loss of you mother.

    On the tea bag. I don't know. I expect there are times that such a saw can have a resonance. Mostly though, a bit like a horse, a few swift swats on the backside together with a big enfolding hug might be enough to defrag the brain a bit.
    I expect circular thinking is you enemy at the moment, together with a degree of self imposed blame. That goes with the country. I don't think there is a whole hell of a lot you can do about that beyond being aware of it. If you've the money, you might think of moving to a new property. Anything new really.

    1. Thanks Vince, I appreciate that.

      I think your analogy about the horse is spot on, sometimes you just need something to "snap" you out of a slump or a vicious cycle of sorts.

      You're also right about the circular thinking. I'm aware, and it is getting better slowly but surely - thank goodness.

      I'm torn between wanting to move and stay....I want to stay because this is the place she was last alive in but I also want to move because of the memories the night she passed away holds. I guess time will tell on that one.

  2. I'm so sorry for all the struggles you have been going through. I do believe the tea bag tag, although I wouldn't have about 5 years ago. You never know when or if you will ever find out your true impact but you do impact the world.

    1. Thank you, I sincerely appreciate that. You know after I posted this I thought about it more and I have to side with you on this one. I thought about it in the context of pollution for some reason and my carbon footprint - the choices I make every day definitely impact the environment.

      And, I'm sure other choices I make also impact the world...the good thing is the tea bag message got me thinking about it I guess. :)
