Sipsby is a new to me company that’s all about tea. Hailing out of Austin, TX this is a monthly tea discovery subscription box that curates to your personalized tea preferences. If you’re wary of trying out a box because you want to receive something you know you’ll like, the Sipsby signup includes a checklist of questions (its very simple but helpful!) such as preferred tea flavors, tea varieties (maybe you love green tea but don’t care for white tea), and so on. This keeps the element of surprise open and up to you!
Example, I selected that I prefer sweet, “dessert”, and health/wellness tea. I selected that I personally favor all types of tea leaves and non tea-leaves (tisanes) so that opened up my profile to be diverse. However, you can always retake your tea profile quiz if you want to shake things up or simply add more to your curations.
Others actions do not determine your self worth
Repeat this, underline, bold it, mentally ink it til you memorize it.
On a previous Instagram post, I wrote about the illusion of perfection. I basically fell to the notion that I needed to consistently excel in order to feel “worthy” or credible as a person, that this applied to all areas: my behavior, my looks, the way others perceived me. Guess what, this mode of thinking was just toxic at best.
The way others treat us, behave towards us, or our time with them isn’t a reflection of your self worth. Do not question or doubt your value or hustle based on what someone thinks or their actions toward you. Here’s why: your opinion comes first, your worth isn’t dictated by your relationship status, your net worth, your past, or the media. Do not submit to thinking that you have to change for others to fit in a box. Personally I believe we should continually be growing, progressing, and evolving for ourselves. Some of us were not given that golden principle to: cultivate your own happiness. Some of us are scared to do it. Some of us think we have to look a certain way to get it, but this is truly false.
Coinciding with this month’s theme is the Goddess Provision March Box on Wellness. This is perhaps the ideal curated subscription service that covers all the bases: cruelty free, minimally packaged, and each product is thoughtfully selected to serve a purpose (read: not a filler item). It’s my joy & excitement each month to unveil the selected theme and really apply what the Goddess Provisions team has set up for us in the particular month.
Real Talk: for me, wellness means personal wellness. It means identifying what works best for your body &. mind in order for you to find a happy medium of health and joy. I say medium because I don’t really believe balance is completely attainable. We’re all human, we have our good days, our bad days, our days when we just want to step back and relax, our days when we have a lust for life and fun. In my opinion: it’s about addressing yourself first and making necessary steps to continually learn about yourself.
We’re already almost 2 weeks into March. I have been following my regime that I planned out in my March intentions: staying centered, letting go, being mindful. So far I’ve definitely been experiencing a sense of peace that was wholly needed and keeps me accountable. Except for Daylight Savings time making its lovely appearance, I definitely did not react well to the time change but hey, having an arsenal of ideas to bounce back to my routine helps, and so does this recipe!
Sticking to my mylks or mylk lattes, this one is more of a day time mylk. It’s spiked with LivWell Nutrition protein that is not your typical protein powder. For this mylk I used the Raw Plant Protein in Wild Vanilla Bean! It is gluten-free, vegan, and made up of a protein blend with whole foods such as organic sprouted brown rice, organic yellow peas, organic sacha inchi, organic hemp. There’s also some vanilla bean, coconut sugar, Ceylon cinnamon, & stevia for some added sweetness – all organic.
