Sundays are for gold bunnies, green tea in Totoro mugs, and 88 Cups of Tea related catchups. 🐰🍵
I spent the weekend riding off a high from 88 Cups of Tea related things. I was drafting the latest 88 Cups of Tea newsletter, dealing with serious analysis paralysis the entire week and finally breaking through and hitting the “send” button yesterday. Receiving the warmest responses has been filling up my soul-cup and has been such an important reminder about transparency and connecting, human to human. 💕
On Friday, I curated 18 questions for our 88 Cups of Tea survey and received the 100th completed survey last night. In just T-W-O days, over 1️⃣️0️⃣️0️⃣️ of you incredible listeners spent an average of 16+ minutes writing such in-depth and heartfelt answers, paragraphs and paragraphs of them. You don’t even understand, nearly two years ago, I sent an email to our newsletter subscribers with exactly 8 questions and was *blown* away to receive close to twenty emails in a week.
When the 100th rolled in last night, I was in a complete daze. How was this even possible? I read through each one of your responses. I was moved to tears, crying over how much 88 Cups of Tea means to you, and laughing *so loudly* over the things you wish you didn’t have to deal with on a daily. I never could've imagined this was going to be more like an anonymous pen-pal letter than a straight-up survey. ✨
It was mind-blowing to see that nearly all of us share the same goals on our bucket lists and also share the same pain points, it's a beautiful and reassuring thing to know how much we all have in common during our highest of highs and lowest of lows. We're never as alone as we think we are.
Thank you for peeling back the layers, thank you for showing me the magic that makes you *you*. Our community is so special because of you. 🙏🏼🙌
