Tea Reviews

I stopped drinking coffee a while back (post about that to come). Now that I drink more tea I want to remember which tea I liked and which tea I didn’t. The tea reviews are based solely on my personal preferences. It does not mean that the tea is a low/high quality.

Chocolate: Did you know?

(Chocolate) Did you know? Processed cocoa beans contains cocoa butter and cocoa powder. Dark chocolate is made with the cocoa powder while white chocolate is made with the cocoa butter. Milk chocolate is made with a combination of both.

30 Day Challenge Edging its Beginning

I have 17,155 days left to live. That’s 34% of my time gone. At least that’s what statistics say. All this time has passed yet I’m still not ready to live.

Your current lifestyle, habits and values are they reflective of who you really are?

Since our birth our minds have been syringed with clutter. Injected with some great and some malicious information. That cluster of information is what define us and therefore defined the world as we see it. I wonder if one truly believes they are living the life they should be living. Are you yourself or are you who the world told you to be?

I’m on a journey to decipher my mind to its purity. To remind myself who I am and what I should be. This blog is my log of this journey.
