I’ll be watching “Angel and the Badman” today. I was so happy to learn that it is now part of a growing number of movies in the public domain! There’s just something about a bad boy, right ladies? We can always “change” them… yeah, right!
Is that too much passion for a Monday? Sorry, but it is WORLD KISS DAY!!! While I am not an authority on kisses or from whom to get them, I do know a bit about passion and how to calm your nerves. Don’t let your imagination run away with you – I’m talking about tea!
Tea – even iced tea, has a calming effect on the brain, but passion fruit tea is especially unique. It contains chemicals called Harman alkaloids, which help calm the nervous system. These are the same alkaloids used in muscle relaxers due to the calming, healing properties.
You could go to Starbuck’s and buy an over-priced iced Passion Tea, OR you can make your own. It’s not that difficult. No, really – it’s really not.
2 quarts water
1/2 cup Splenda
4 Tazo Passion Tea bags
Bring water and Splenda to a boil. Remove from heat and add tea bags. Steep 1/2-1 hour. Pour tea into pitcher and refrigerate. Pour cold tea over ice in your cup with lid and shake!
It’s not enough to just make the tea. Now you need the perfect spot to drink it. Choose an environment that invokes a sense of peace to your soul. Don’t drink it in front of the computer. Don’t drink it in front of the TV. Leave all technology behind for the time you are enjoying your Passion Iced Tea.
Maybe you don’t think you have time to do this, but trust me, you will be so glad you took the time. We make time for the things that matter the most. I take time every day to write a blog post (well, almost every day). It’s my gift to encourage and I hope and pray that you have found this blog to be encouraging to your spirit. ❤
