Tea, Chocolate and Happiness

I firmly believe that each of us should have that special time during the day in which to fall into the moment and treat ourselves to something we love.

My moments (there are two of them each day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon) involve tea and chocolate. My teas are Numi's Jasmine Green, White Rose and Dry Desert Lime.  My chocolate is Endangered Species Chocolate found at our local food co-op.  My two favorite flavors are: Lime Sea Salt and Coconut Creme Filled. Yum!!  

While the tea is steeping I take in the delicate aroma.  The first sip of tea - ahhhhh!  I break a square of chocolate into quarters and each of these very small pieces sits on my tongue while I savor the flavor.  For just these moments, my life is suspended in time, with thankfulness.

I am truly happy!

"The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things." - Henry Ward Beecher


  1. That is exactly how I feel about a cup of French Vanilla Coffee at about 2:00 PM.

    funny how we can savor a moment!

  2. To treat ourselves is special, exceptd I'd need ice tea in this NC heat where I am visiting Mom. It might also melt the chocolate.

  3. Ahemmm! ....and WHERE is my plane ticket I'd like to know!!??

  4. Mmmmmm...definitely. ;o) You've inspired me! I've got tea in the house but no chocolate!!
