About Living from the Heart ~

We live by stories passed on for generations about who we are
and where we should be going. But these stories don't always let us live our best lives, because they aren't our personal legends.

Living from the Heart is about discovering our own stories. Choices with Intention. It is the journey to be true to ourselves and to dare to be all God and the Universe made us to be.

Life is like...Eating Chocolates

"The road to a woman's heart is long, paved with shortcuts of chocolate" ~ Anon

It's amazing how some research says chocolates are bad for you and then other research says it's okay after all. It reminds me of Life..with 6 billion people, there are bound to be a variety of opinions. And it's really up to ME to decide..what works for me.

I think when I was 5..i didn't know one way or another and just enjoyed a chocolate when i got a chance to eat one. And there was the key..the adults never handed me a whole box. So maybe the problem isn't chocolates after all..but more that I seem to have access now as an adult to unlimited amounts of it as i please.

The odd thing is..i don't enjoy eating a whole box of chocolates alone. It never seems to taste as good as when i SHARE it around..and sometimes, even share that ONE chocolate around if each one is a different flavour. I love being in a conversation revolving around a box of chocolates.. everyone tends to become so passionate and so involved..and nobody's ever wrong or right. Everyone's just happy they got an exquisite bite.

Yes..the shortcut to my heart may be chocolates..but only when you're going to be around to share them with me. That's their REAL charm to me.. it's something we BOTH LoVE


  1. I agree with that bit about sharing. Maybe it's because humans are essentially social beings. It doesn't even matter if you're at the giving or receiving end; being on either side is a great feeling. You can't be told what not to eat, but it's safer to exercise caution on the amount you eat.

  2. Exercising caution is putting loving self boundaries in place isn't it? There is a safe 'limit' to sharing..sharing beyond what is healthy ends up in us being drained and perhaps eventually bitterness, and then it wasn't so much the act of sharing itself that was the poison as much as the amount we indulged in.

    Thanks Doris..for stopping by and for sharing :)
