Life! and chocolate! :)

Life! and Chocolate! πŸ™‚

 

Life! How often do you stop and think about life? I guess if I’d asked this a month ago, the answer would have been quite different from today!? With the recent events in Paris my guess is that now more than ever people have started thinking a bit more. Not taking things for granted so much. Now there are events in Mali – connected or not, it does make you wonder what is the world coming to? Is this the start of World War III? or are these one-off isolated events? Is it safe to go about our daily business, visit shopping centres, concerts, festivals, restaurants or other large gatherings of people? But. Should we be scared? If we are scared does it mean we are weak? If we shut ourselves away, have the terrorists won?

Life! Do you ever think about how fast life passes by? If you have children this makes it easier to see each day, week, month, year flashing past. My son had a birthday this week. Seriously, where have all the years gone!? It seems like yesterday that he was born, starting walking, at nursery, first day atΒ school, first tooth for the tooth fairy, first performance, first goal, etc. etc. so many firsts in those eleven years! πŸ™‚

Life! Do you moan!? Do you moan that your neighbour has a nicer car than you? Do you moan that your friend earns more money than you? Do you moan that your partner has annoying habits? Do you ever moan that someone else won the lottery? Why not stop. Think. Be positive and look atΒ what you do have! Sometimes events happen that cause us to realise what we had when it’s too late. Be thankful. Be happy. You are blessed with life. πŸ™‚

Chocolate! πŸ™‚ Just a very quick recipe today! WordPress has changed my home page and I can’t work anything out today! PLUS my laptop has decided it has a hard drive error and it has all my photos! Chocolate! The weather here has gone cold! VERY cold! We even had a sprinkling of snow! Grab a mug of your favourite milk (I made almond milk this week)! Add a sprinkle of cacao (or cocoa), add a pinch of cinnamon and heat until warm (not boiling). Enjoy with some yummy biscuits! and wordpress won’t even let me add a link!? πŸ™ Oh well.. at least I have some yummy chocolate to drink! πŸ™‚Chocolate Life Diet Health

Keep smiling! πŸ™‚ Be happy! πŸ™‚ Feel blessed! πŸ™‚

    Great philosophy to live by! I try to appreciate every day I’m alive and reach only for what I think is appropriate for me.

      Excellent… that’s the best way to be – appreciative of every day πŸ™‚ I would say to reach a bit higher sometimes though – great things can be achieved if you set your mind to them! πŸ™‚
