Many of you know I am "stuck on chocolate" and enjoy my share daily. Actually some days more than others. It is a comfort food and when I saw this posting I just had to share it with you all!!
A good piece of chocolate has about 200 calories. As I enjoy
2 servings per night, and a few more on weekends, I consume
about 3,500 calories of chocolate in a week, which equals one
pound of weight per week.
Therefore, in the last 3-1/2 years, I have had chocolate
caloric intake of about 180 pounds, and I only weigh 165 pounds.
So... without chocolate, I would have wasted away to nothing
about 3 months ago! I owe my life to chocolate!

What good logic is said here? Hope everyone enjoyed the post and I thank you all for taking time to read it! Hugs!

Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone's
face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger
and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the
real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love
that I sow now will be many fruits, here in this world
and the life to come. - Henri Nouwen
I think this a very appropriate quote to post for today.
1. Did I offer peace today? Yes
2. Did I bring a smile to a face? Yes, many today!
3. Did I offer word of healing? Yes, delivered with hugs.
4. Did I let go of anger? Some but need to keep working on it.
5. Did I forgive? I do this every day even though I may not know I need to forgive.
6. Did I love? Absolutely and without question, but then we do have to know we are to love everyone and I will work on this daily as well.
How about you? These are emotions that need to be done every day and I hope to remember to do it daily. God bless you all!!

I have never been a millionaire, but I have enjoyed a great meal,
a crackling fire, a glorious sunset, a walk with a friend, a hug
from a child, a cup of soup, a kiss behind the ear. There are
plenty of life's tiny delights for all of us. - Jack Anthony
So true to my feelings. Every day is a Glory Day even though we may have stress in our lives. We must look to what is comforting, helping to make us smile and care about others. The blessing we have are many. Do one act of kindness for someone you don't know tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing this quote with me.

"Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb." ~ Sir Winston Churchill
One certainly could take this quote for many of our daily challenges but I think for the majority of us would look at it as our weight loss journey. These can be very powerful words as we work hard to meet our short term and long term goals. We start out fast and tend to slow and when progress isn't seen, we tend to slow til standing still. My thought is to keep on "plugging" away and that long term goal will find you & you will find it!
Thank you for taking time to stop by and reading. I hope you can get much insight from the quote that can apply to your life.

"I think laughter may be a form of courage.
As humans, we sometimes stand tall and look into the sun and laugh, and I think we are never more brave than when we do that."
