Quote for Today (and another High Tea)

Quote for Today (and another High Tea)

I’ve pinned this quote to my pin-up board at work.  It seems fitting for my life right now.  It helped me make a big decision and made me feel better about making it in the first place…

“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you…” – Buddha

Live, love and let go…I’m learning to do those things…slowly, I am learning.

Today I was lucky enough to spend a few hours at a High Tea with my friends from work.  We had a lovely afternoon with beautiful food as we chatted and gossiped, laughed and enjoyed the elegant surroundings of Rochelle Adonis‘ tea rooms.  I felt a bit guilty about “skiving” off work for longer than our usual lunch break, but as it was a farewell event for one of our dear ladies who is leaving to return to Ireland for her studies, I was not feeling too bad about it.  🙂  I stayed back late at work and will do so tomorrow as well to make up the time.  So nice to spend time with good friends who have supported me, even in the short time they have known me and have some “girly” time with gorgeous food and delicious tea.  If only every day could involve that!  Although I’d be big as a house and wouldn’t get much work done.  I am determined, when I move into a new place finally, that I will endeavour to create beauty and elegance in my own home.  I say this now, and envisage tea in vintage cups and delicate morsels of food served on dainty doilies and platters, but we all know it will end up being toast on a chipped plate, me in my PJs, in front of the tv with water in a plastic beaker.  But a girl can dream.  What else is there?

Hope your dreams for today came true or, at least, brought you closer to achieving tomorrow’s.

  1. The high tea looks lovely! I clicked through their gallery. Sounds like a very nice send-off.
    Good quote at the start of your post – we sing a song in my choir that is from that: “In the end what matters most is how well do I live, how well do I love, how well do I learn to let go?” I will be singing that for you.

    1. Thank you – yes the high tea place was very elegant and pretty. Thank you for your thoughts (and songs) – much appreciated 🙂
