Lift Your Mood and Let Optimism Rule!

Drink your tea slowly
as it is
the axis on which
the world earth
revolves -
without rushing
toward the future.

~Thich Nat Hahn

The most important thing

is to enjoy your life -

to be happy -

it's all that matters. 

~ Audrey Hepburn

Life your mood and let optimism rule!

Here's to your health!  

I would like to join Martha and Terri for tea. 


  1. Thanks for your inspiring post! Love your elegant teacups.

  2. Very encouraging, thanks for sharing.

  3. My goodness, where have I been? I've missed all these posts.

    Inspiring words, and lovely photos. Yes, so many things should be done much slower. I'll be working on that.

  4. Oh such beautiful white and gold cups! But not as beautiful as your spirit! Your positive outlook is a gift to us all : )

  5. Hi there, sweet lady! What a treat. The cups you are featuring are pretty. I like the quotes you shared. I think that is one of the reasons I adore drinking tea~ I embrace the ritual of slowing down, focusing on the task of boiling water and steeping the leaves while I enjoy some quiet moments alone or share some warm friendship with a companion. I am a 'half-full' kind of person and appreciate blessings, small and large. When I studied Urusenke (Japanese Tea Ceremony) my sensei taught us to observe the color, texture, shape and design of our tea ware, our food, our kettle...small things, that give joy!
    Have a great week,

  6. Beautiful sentiments! The two cups by Aynsley are totally different but the elegance is in the shape and gold accents. I have always enjoyed Audrey Hepburn and he words are very wise.

    Thanks, Pam

  7. Oooh, love these cups! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  8. Brenda,
    I LOVE LOVE this tea quote!! Would you mind if I used it on our blog some time? How are you doing, dear? I hope you are enjoying this wonderful Fall season. I noticed the pink pumpkins the kids were making, how fun and festive. Jess just made some black lace pumpkins, and some said they were pretty and sexy hehe. Have a wonderful weekend.
