“Life always begins with one step outside of your comfort zone.”
- Shannon L. Alder
Have you ever tried Yerba Mate tea? I love love love it. It's delicious and also provides amazing clarity. If you haven't tried it definitely do so.
I ran out of my inventory and went to order some more online and Vitacost was out of it. I was annoyed for a second and then let it go and simply searched their website for other brands of the same tea.
As I did so I realized that I had been ordering that brand since I had first tried it and it has just become routine.
And so it is with so many things in life. We do something one time one way and then we just keep doing it that way without questioning it. And without an awareness that we are doing so mindlessly.
And then the universe pulls the rug out from under us. This is obviously an innocuous example of a tea brand not being in stock, but it is a metaphor for life.
How do you respond when something doesn't go the way that you planned or the way that you have been doing it for so long? Are you open to change? To a new way?
I ordered a new brand of Yerba mate tea and guess what? I like it better.
