week 11

week 11 | The journey of a thousand miles begins beneath one's feet ~ Lao Zi
千里之行, 始于足下 ~ 老子

My day normally begins with a cup of goji berry tea, a fresh grapefruit then either some porridge or cereal with banana or strawberries. I struggle to function without a decent breakfast. This morning, I came across the above quote from the great ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Zi on the Times newspaper.

Lao Zi's philosophy was introduced to me at the Chinese history class at school. That was like nearly 2 decades ago! I believe the little things we do or the ways we treat each other on a daily basis will gradually lead up to something tremendous one day. 

I often bite off more than I can chew and putting myself in a great deal of pressure. I should really stop to think about it first before I get myself into a pickle again. Another note to myself is to accommodate daily life ups and downs with grace; don't sweat the small stuff!

Here is a little recipe that I want to share with you. Goji berries are believed to benefit the immune system function, protect the liver and improve circulation. 

  • a handful of Goji berries (soaked, keep and use soak water)
  • grated fresh Ginger
  • honey
