Earning trust that's been lost is hard work, you guys. I don't have to tell you that. If someone betrays you, steals from you, attacks or belittles you... Would you trust them again?

The root of your being is trust in yourself, because you are divine and powerful and you can create a life for yourself that is joyful and well. Guide yourself true.

HQ, we dreamed up some seriously phenomenal Matcha Melody lattes for ya'll to enjoy. Get ready to fall in love with green tea all over again.
