Random Acts of Wisdom

"The only tool you need is kindness."

{Surprise message found on the tag of my last bag of Woman's Dong Quai Tonic tea..."revive for your body"...by Yogi Tea}

I think this might become a new feature for Fridays....Random Acts of Wisdom...or RAW. I am always inspired by things around me, particularly messages and words and phrases. I never took the time to really look at my teabags and now that this is the last one I am discovering this overlooked treasure. (There were also messages printed on the box!)

Have you found a Random Act of Wisdom someplace unexpected? A fortune cookie that speaks to your heart? A message scrawled in graffiti? An advertisement copy that is more than just selling widgets? Do tell!

{And let me know what you think of this new feature!}

P.S. You have until 11:59 pm CST on Sunday, December 6th to enter the first Inspired by...Hardware Stores challenge. There are 6 amazingly creative entries so far. Go here to view them and leave them a comment!

Enjoy the day!

Erin, This would be a nice Friday feature. Can't think of any inspirational words right now - my problem is I see them, read them, love them, but can't remember them!! I used to keep a little inpirational words log that grew and grew.
I have a blank canvas hanging in my kitchen that I've wanted to use to create a collage of French words; perhaps I'll do words and phrases.
Thanks for the inspiration today!

from my yogi tea bag - may this day bring you peace, happiness & harmony...
from yogi bottled tea - if we don't change the direction we are headed, we will end up where we are going...
the former is taped to a kitchen cabinet... the latter is on the window sill...

Erin, I'm the same way as Sandi M. I don't remember, but I do know that these things permeate my being. They come out in unexpected ways. I feel I have very little wisdom, so I am an empty cup waiting to be filled.

Hi Erin
What a great post. ... I do turn to you for words of wisdom! I enjoyed reading some of the other "pearls" offered here in the comments too!

RAW is a great idea, I probably can't commit to Fridays, but my love and kindness will try to be in the air as I make my way through this gorgeous garden of friends I call Life.


Oh, my best fortune cookie ever said "Try another cookie, this one having fun at the beach."

I'm always looking for wisdom...and you often find it in the places you least expect it. A Friday feature is a great idea!

Love the quote Renate offered up there -- brilliant!
