Forrest Gump’s Mamma said, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.”
I haven’t been sharing much on here lately because my chocolate box has been a bit rotten. The past 6 months have been brown and gooey, not in the yummy chocolate kind of way but in the shitty kind.
I know everyone’s life gets messy from time to time and I’m not trying to do the poor me thing here. It’s not like that.
I’ve realised that even the crappiest days can offer insight, growth and reflection.
My favourite quote of all time, which I’m sure I’ve shared before, is:
Every crisis represents not only danger but opportunity ~ Eckhart Tolle
Although I am still prone to anxiety and pessimism, I am opening up to uncovering the chocolate-lining in every dark cloud that passes over me. I mean, can there really ever be a bad chocolate?
I think all chocolates can offer something delicious and satisfying. You just have to allow your taste buds to mull it over instead of gulping it down then screaming YUCK. At least that’s what I keep telling myself.
I have big changes happening in my life and although I relish change, it can also be terrifying. I have a real fear of the unknown and if I cannot plan and control a situation, I feel lost and uncertain. This is when more chocolate is needed.
Yup, I’m eating a lot of chocolate in search of my sweet spot. I know I’ll find it soon. Probably in a box of Favourites.
How’s your box of chocolates been lately?
