I’m not a big fan of fruits … not much of vegetables as well. I like crunchy stuff. I like salty stuff. I like nuts!
But, knowing how important all of these foods are, of course I add them to my system daily. And I must enjoy my food! So, I find a way to bring them in and still not have to taste their true taste, haha. My magic is Smoothies! Okay, I eat oranges, bananas, spinach, or carrot mostly through a regular meal, but everything I don’t really like I mask in the smoothie and bring it on! This is a win-win – eating healthy food and enjoying it.
I think we always have to find some enjoyable way to do things we don’t like… at least that’s how I roll.
And this is how I fell in love with tea blends!
There are also herbs that don’t taste that great, but since I’m aware of how good they are, I have a secret way to ingest them. I started playing around and finding what works for me. Then, I was building it up, adding more experiments, learning more stuff, testing, testing, testing… Years passed before I offered my first cup of tea to my friends. Many years passed until I’ve decided to move down this path… And today, I have a beautiful Tea Brand that I have never even dreamed of.
Somebody asked me how the Black Rabbit Tea started. Well, this is the long story short 🙂
I felt like a mad scientist 😀
Playing around with herbs, learning not to grow them but to mix them, bringing my inner vision of visual design and my sense of customer service. All these ingredients combined together have created the magic I still wasn’t aware it could create. I just didn’t know. How could I? All the creative projects I had in the past were only for personal matters, and now, I make a living out of it. There are many things to navigate now, but we learn as we go.
The fun is still there, and that’s what matters most.
I wish for you to seek joyful ways to bring something in your life that actually serves you. If you have a wish, not in your mind, but in your body (heart, soul … whatever you call it), pursue it … It didn’t just come up, it’s a longing, it’s something we need to give ourselves in order to move forward with ease, with joy, growth, expansion … Something is there, trust it, without judgment.
No social norm can know what’s good for us. No one soul outside of our body can know what our soul is longing for. Nothing and no one, except us could know what we need. We have all the answers, that’s true, even if I was fighting it many times now I know what it means.
Listen to yourself!
