i've always loved this proverb because of how concise and meaningful it is. .
it's a good reminder that, y e s, we should live out our life's potential and enjoy it, but we should do that while taking into account the e f f e c t of our actions;
we don't live in a vacuum and what we do affects so much more outside of this narrow s***p of time we live in!
i've found that perspective is easier to focus on by s i m p l y appreciating nature and trying to find our balance in it. and a good way to do this is by looking to and trusting in the nature of things. sometimes the answers we need are the simplest ones, like enhancing our well-being with natural remedies.
this is a moringa tree. native to northern india, i'm glad to have it right in my garden in florida. recently, i've been hearing alot about it's health benefits as recognized by western medicine.
i made a tea from harvested leaflets, because not only is moringa loaded with nutrients, but it's a great antioxidant source. for ex., the levels of chlorogenic acid in moringa leaves help regulate blood sugar (this acid is also found in coffee!)
i also added some extra anti-inflammatory power with curcumin powder i picked up from @bulksupplements.
and not that the tea needed it, but "a lil spoonful of great honey never hurt anything." - winnie the pooh (i don't actually think he ever said that, but it sounds like he would).
do you have any go-to natural supplements that have a good effect on you?
