Tea Wisdom: Promote What You Love!

I was just settling down to a nice cup of tea when I noticed a quote at the end of the tea bag: "Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate." This anonymous statement really made me stop and think, especially because of how much hatred you can find these days in online forums and communities. Anonymity unfortunately makes some people unleash incredible amounts of venom and even horrible threats. I believe a main thing many of us enjoy about Vingle is that it's based soundly on uniting to promote what you love, rather than mobbing around bashing what you hate. What's really the point of spewing hate? I'm talking more than friendly banter over sports teams - I mean outright bashing and demeaning things other people love or create. Does it make you feel good, other than maybe a short-lived rush? Does it forge meaningful relationships? Does it create something beautiful, cool or amazing? Does it inspire others to create more beautiful, cool, amazing things for you to enjoy? Let's apply this to relationships as well. What if we spent more time promoting the things we love in others, to their face and when talking about them to others, instead of bashing the things we dislike about them? Imagine how much more positive we would feel about ourselves, about other people, and about our relationships? This coming year, let's try to spend less time on hate, and more time on promoting what we love!

I love this too. I'm all about promoting positivity. Whenever I'm about to complain about something, I stop and try to focus on all the good things!

LGBT Pride Playlist
In light of the tragedy in Orlando, I want to make sure that everyone in this community regardless of your sexual orientation, your religious beliefs, or your political opinions, knows that you're loved. Everyone deserves to love and be loved, to live their lives how they wish, and to feel safe being themselves. Here are a few songs of encouragement, and I hope that anyone affected (which, really, should be all Americans) find peace. Amber - Borders Stand up, fall down, up again Up against the pressure I am in Slowly but surely I begin Jumping trains โ€˜cause I know I can win I know thereโ€™s a plan So thick the fog but I know I can trust The feelings that I feel when the roads rough Park Jungmin - Not Alone I can believe Iโ€™m not alone Not alone now, not sad anymore and I can feel it Iโ€™m not alone Definitely not alone, never be exhausted again Song Jieun - Don't Look At Me Like That Donโ€™t look at me like that Weโ€™re just in love, thatโ€™s all Donโ€™t hate on us, however youโ€™re viewing us Weโ€™re just a little different Just leave us alone Canโ€™t we live in a world where time stands still? Why? Why not? We did nothing wrong Why? Why not? Weโ€™re so in love Ailee - Heaven You taught me love in this harsh world I am happy with you alone Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven If we're together we will never cry never never cry Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Forever, together never gonna be alone BTS - Save Me Listen to my heartbeat It calls you whenever it wants to Because within this pitch black darkness You are shining so brightly Go spread love today, and every day.
Women Are Clingy, Men Are Romantic
Why is it that when a man performs a wild, extravagant, borderline-stalker gesture, and he's SO ROMANTIC. A woman attempts to sweep a man off of his feet, and we're called crazy. Or clingy. Or obsessive. Why is it more socially acceptable for a man to overly express his emotional side but women need to play it cool when it comes to romance? Writes you letters everyday. Think of the Notebook. We're told to think that's super romantic of the guy, but if a girl did it she'd be seen as obsessed!! Throws rocks at your window. I used to fantasize about that when I was younger, hoping my crush would ride his bike over and say he loves me from the street below. But think about a girl doing that...she's probably stalking you. Shows up outside your classroom door to walk you to your next class. A guy standing outside your office or classroom door is sweet, touching, cute, but a girl might be a little obsessed with you, right? Trying to change your mind about dating them. Girls chasing after their crush telling them 'I'll treat your right!,' ' Just give me one shot,' or anything Heath Ledger said in 10 Things I Hate About You just sounds goofy to think about! Do anything annoyingly musical. Put on a performance in front of the whole school, hold up a boom box outside of your window, whatever it is, guys can do it and girls should sort of...not... Use pick up lines. Guys may get a huge eye roll for using them, but have you ever heard a girl throw out a pick up line at someone at the bar? Probably not. Ladies: Do you ever feel like you can't make any big romantic gestures? What's a romantic thing you've done? Ladies and Gentlemen: Would you be turned on or off by a girl doing a bigger romantic gesture that's usually just considered a guy thing? Personally, I'm all for everyone showing love in as many ways as they can! I'm not super into big romantic things for me personally, but I say guys and gals should be able to do whatever they want!
