Having a “cuppa” is an Irish expression I learned to love during an extended stay a few years ago. The question, “Will you have a cuppa?”, whether it was asked by the waitress in the pub or the next door neighbor carried with it a non-negotiable response. In other words, if you are invited for a cup of tea, then you best sit down and take a sip!
I use this phrase now to capture the messages I write on my cup because what I learned from the Irish “having a cuppa” means so much more than the words. We sat, we sipped tea, we talked, we laughed, we learned about each other, we garnered a new point of view, we planned, we sympathized, we shared ourselves, we were living better with a cup of tea.
My cup is travelling to the awesome places I get to work, but more importantly it will feature quotes/phrases or the things I’m saying to myself in the hope that sharing these thoughts will help someone else to be living better. Enjoy.
