Today I cracked up my laptop and started working. I quickly halted and decided to look at how the words tea and toast could be seen by the outside world. For me, every single day it’s about tea and toast. I think that tea and toast to me means something quite personal about a building blocks life and what it means to start off in the world. By world I mean business or life in general.
When a child is born, for example, they are brought into the world and loved and cared for. The first food, that a parent would eat is some tea and toast. This is the first thing the hospital offers the mother. I was fortunate enough to be offered some to. I’ve noticed that the New York Times has released a podcast. In it, they mentioned the idea of 10 toasts being a staple hold in the podcast, they talk about cinnamon toast and trying to make their own bread, as well. The podcast and transcript continue to talk about there being a perfect blend. The perfect mixture of cinnamon and sugar. It continues to talk about food.
Mark Thompson, the chief executive of the New York Times Company, apparently, seems to enjoy. Like every other American, a bit of cinnamon toast. This is where it struck me quite hard. During the time of this pandemic, my core values have not changed. If anything they’ve stayed the same, or gained strength. I really do believe in the good in humanity. I refuse to feed the bad wolf or look on the dark side. I do, at times, look at the world, and try my best to see it positively. This does mean that I do often see the thorns in the bush and talk about them. I’m not averse to understanding. There is negativity or a downside in many circumstances that we might be facing in these hard times. Coming back to the New York Times. I find it interesting that they would talk about tea and toast.
My belief is that whether you are American or English or British or any nationality. It’s very common to have a very cultural homely food. People often talk about cravings and food that takes them back to their childhood. For example, in this instance the New York Times and Mark Thompson, the chief executive does talk about how they are reminded of their kitchen or their childhood. I feel like I’ve talked about team toast, and why I came up with the name in the past. During these hard times, and the pandemic. I feel like it’s really important to put something out there to say why I’m cold tea and toast, and how it relates directly to how we all can feel and be happier about the future. The future can always be better. The future can always be brighter. We do not have to try.
We just need to believe. From belief, we get the footsteps, where we begin to take that journey.
I really enjoy working with the businesses and social enterprises that I support. I love it because I know that they are doing great work. And I am able to help them along their path in some way. This is equally why I’m not a rich millionaire. I’m probably more of a humanitarian, in the world of digital marketing. I aim to please. I try my best to make sure people have the right tools. I try my best to make sure that everybody knows what the nuances and digital marketing ethos is all about. In these modern times. Once I’ve done my bit then hopefully people can take the newfound knowledge and fly. So I arrived to my closing question.
Why did the New York Times do a podcast on teen toast? Why are tea and toast important to all of us. It’s my belief that we all came from somewhere warm and comforting with love. We all want to be loved and cared for. I believe we all want to make sure we live in a better world. In these hard times, remembering your values, and why you are doing something goes hand in hand with the nature of tea and toast. Whether it’s comfort food, or you believe it’s symbolic of a child being born. One of the underlying reasons for naming myself and my brand tea and toast was that it wasn’t something that stood on its own.
Toast does not sit there on its own. It takes time to make the bread, and then to cook it to make toast. It takes time, at the right temperature and duration to make that toast perfect and hot enough to add butter too, so it melts beautifully.
Tea takes time to have picked the leaves and put it in boiling water and then wait for that cup of tea to brew to the perfect drink that you might desire, the hard work that went into making the tea and the toast is important. But what’s more important is the fact that they both work together in harmony. They are both together.
