It’s incredibly amazIng how a couple of good night’s rest, a good book, exercise and a bar of dark dark chocolate can help to elevate my mood. Not just dark, intense!!
I’ve had four bars of Ghirardelli since last November sitting in my little cubby tray on the desk. I haven’t even thought about them. Wait, I have thought about them but wouldn’t let myself dwell on the fact that they were, like, within arm’s reach for five months. But, today I feel great. I just had my visiting teacher here. I was able to talk through a lot of struggles, worries and sadness. I also just finished up preparing the little handout I am taking to my sisters
and my heart is full to overflowing. And then I saw the bars.
Yep. Broke off two pieces and totally indulged. I don’t feel the need to eat the whole dang thing. I don’t feel the need to go throw up. I don’t feel the need to beat myself up. I just feel good. And believe me. I haven’t felt good for a while so I’m enjoying every single minute of it!!
Perhaps a little perspective has helped me to get out of my three week funk!!
