This isn’t the first time I’ve gone a day without chocolate. However the last time was probably when I got my wisdom teeth removed…which was a couple years ago. Yes, I have a slight problem, but that’s a story for a whole other post.
Regardless, a day into the journey and all is well! I only thought about creamy, rich, delectable chocolate 40+ times today (I lost count of the exact number). But I’m finding the thoughts more of a habit than anything. It doesn’t help that chocolate is literally in every store at this time of year. Of course, this is but a glimpse of what is to come over the next 11 days…only the chocolate treats around Granny’s holiday house will likely not be wrapped. I must research some coping methods.
I realize this all sounds quite trivial but I assure you my chocolate addiction is anything but, and I don’t think I’m alone in this plight. Secondly, I think this is about more than chocolate; a need in any sense is denying the present moment of it’s validity. My ultimate goal is to be able to accept that a chocolate-less moment (or an anything-less moment) is as beautiful as a chocolate-ful moment…a concept that I barely even believe is possible at this point.
Chocolate makes everything better…right?
