2021 has been another challenging year for many of us and personally it has been an emotional rollercoaster. Despite the challenges faced, when I look back there have been so many things to be thankful and positive about. netlogx’ 2021 wellbeing initiative is POSITIVITY and we challenged our team members at the start of the year to focus on doing something positive for themselves, somebody else or their community. 

After much deliberation, I decided to write my POSITIVITY blog largely centered around tea. English breakfast tea to be precise. During this year of ups and downs, consistently one of the favorite parts of my day is sitting outside on my terrace, enjoying my first cup of tea of the day. It is typically cool, peaceful and quiet – the latter two luxuries I will never take for granted again – with beautiful sunlight cascading through the morning sky. In full transparency, many days this year have seen the wheels well and truly coming off after this first cup of tea, which makes these moments of tranquility all the more special.

One of the marvelous outcomes of the global pandemic is being in Spain and finally being able to get certain groceries delivered thanks to online shopping. Even more marvelous, my favorite English tea is available to bulk buy on-line! Needless to say, I am well and truly stocked up which has made me inordinately happy!

To complete this tea POSITIVITY blog, a couple of months ago one I received a surprise package from one of my best friends in England. She had sent me a beautiful “POSITIVITEA” tea pot and cup, as well as two lovely decorative stones. Not only did this brighten my day but also makes me smile and focus on being positive whenever I see them!
