What is it about a hot drink that lends itself so readily to self reflection and self realization?
Help yourself to an attitude of gratitude in the form of self reflection and self realization. Wrap your hands around a warm mug of spiced cider that you take time to sip slowly from a rocker on the front porch.
Don’t have a front porch? Take a walk to your favorite downtown coffee house, and sit and sip on a bench outside the shop. Take some time for self reflection as the beautiful leaves cascade to the ground in their shades of crimson and gold.
Feeling like being with a friend? Make a date to meet for tea or coffee, cocoa or chai. Relax and let the conversation drift where it may. Give each other the gift of comfortable silence if that’s your momentary pleasure.
Pour a cup of warm cocoa for the kids after school. Electronics off; senses on. Have everyone sit together, maybe at the breakfast nook of your cozy kitchen.
