Rebuilder Series: Two Tempting Teas That Can Change Your Life
Good Morning Everybody,
Every single morning when we wake up, the same thing is always on the menu: Tea.
And there are always two varieties of tea being offered….
There’s Positivitea. And Negativitea.
Most people don’t choose, so more times than not they automatically get served the Negativitea. Whoo boy. I’ve had my fair share of that before and IT TASTES BITTER! And I’ve also discovered it’s always served the same way– in a big glass that’s half empty. (I don’t know why they do that.) And when you’re drinking your Negativitea, people tend to avoid you. Except there are usually one or two guys who actually like talking to you. They’re usually drinking Negativitea too. And they’re really friendly — I mean, they LOVE sharing their Negativitea with you. And of course, you don’t mind sharing yours with them because you never run out. Literally! It’s like the more you drink or the more you share the more you have! But as strange as that sounds, Negativitea never fills you up! And to make matters worse… it’s got a really BAD aftertaste. Uch!
On the other hand, we can always choose Positivitea. It’s much more refreshing, incredibly satisfying, and unlike Negativitea, it always comes served in a glass that’s half full! (So bizarre!) Oh, and this tea really draws people to you. Everyone’s like, “Oooh, what are you drinking? I’ll take some of that.” And strange as it sounds, just like Negativitea, you can share it with as many people as you want and it just keeps flowing. On occasion, it does run low, and sometimes there are just a few drops left in the glass. But man, when you drink those last couple drops, or someone shares some of their Positivitea with you, it fills you right back up and literally gives you a boost. It must contain an energy supplement or something. I’ve also noticed it improves your vision!…Everything somehow just looks… clearer.
Friends, it might sound like Positivitea is some magical elixir that you drink and then suddenly everything is great. But it’s not. Positivitea is made from the fruits of gratitude, self-esteem, seeing the good, and trusting in Hashem. We may not be able to exclusively drink Positivitea all day long– that’s a lot to expect. But perhaps a better goal would be trying to become more aware of our drinking habits, and to ACTIVELY CHOOSE which tea to drink. That way we can work on sipping a little more Positivitea and a little less Negativitea each day.
May Hashem help us to drink wisely, and share generously. And may our cups always runneth over, with Positivitea.
Have a grateful, joyful day everybody,
Keep on Building!
