Big Lessons Come in Small…Boxes of Tea?
A few weeks ago, I had an incredibly small but memorable experience. I think it really showed me how the Law of Attraction works. Actually, it was New Years Eve.
My mom had bought French Vanilla tea. I usually like French Vanilla-flavoured things, and my mom is aware of this, so she made sure to leave a teabag of it for me to try.
I was very eager to try it. So, my mom looked for it in the pantry, but it was to no avail. She looked again at least once, and there was still no sign of it. She then called me over to help her look for it, as I usually find things she is looking for immediately or, at the very least, start trying to help her and then she finds it. That was not the case this time.
I really, really wanted to try this tea though. So my mom and I then went in the dining room and looked in a box where she puts tea. She had bought a lot of tea, so there was probably a good chance of either outcome. Again, though, the French Vanilla tea was still nowhere to be found. There was Vanilla Chai tea (in addition to several other teas), but no French Vanilla.
So, then we tried looking again in the pantry. It was getting close to New Years and I wanted the tea to make sure I would still be awake, so, after we couldnt find it, I said something along the lines of, Ill just have this peppermint tea, then.
I bet you can guess what happened next. Thats right: my mom found the French Vanilla tea.
I was very happy and thanked her. As it turns out, I didnt like the tea. Maybe it was too sugary, or something but back to the point.
Anyway, so I guess what Im trying to say is, once I released my desire for the French Vanilla tea out of my mind (and, I suppose, into the Universe), the French Vanilla tea manifested itself.
Last year, I had been struggling with how to let go. But I think that realization has been a very fitting start to what I have decided will be the best year of my life so far.
