I love tea and do not settle.
Ladies get your cup of tea and reminisce with me.
Remember being thirteen making that special list of characteristics you wanted from your future prince charming? Maybe you hid the list or only shared it with your best friends because it was TOP SECRET. This list was pieces of your heart that may still remain true to you today. Every girl has a list whether it be on paper or hidden in her heart.
There is something sweet and real about a young girl making that special list, if the world hasn’t intoxicated her life yet. There is still an innocence to her and an honesty that most of us lose because we have let the world win with its lies. Go back up to my question. Do you remember your list? Sip your tea. Reminisce with me. Now here are the tough questions. Have you lived by that list where your heart may of been the most innocent, and real, or have you settled?
Sip your tea.
Is it your favorite kind? Would you wish for another flavor?
Do you see where I’m am going with this?
You know what you like. You know you wouldn’t ask for a different kind, you won’t settle.
I am twenty-four years old now and search in my heart for my list. I will not settle. I once told my dad “I would rather die alone then settle.” Imagine with me a girl trying a new flavor of tea knowing she will not like it, but justifies her own choice. She tries it and makes the ick face, pulling it away fast she spills. Maybe the tea is too hot and burns her or it is in fact the flavor? She might try it again being in denial but then soon dumps it out.
Settling for the wrong man is like this cup of tea.
You and I both know too many women who have tried different tea flavors because the other was “out of stock” or “not in season”. Next thing we know we are grabbing tissues for our friends or for ourselves because the tea has been spilled. What a mess! Settling for the wrong man is like this cup of tea.
Look at your tea or empty cup. Did you settle? No.
Look at your past relationships if any. Reminisce with me. The thirteen year old girl is still inside us yearning for that list.
