10 Things Only Chocolate Lovers Would Understand

10 Things Only Chocolate Lovers Would Understand

If your secret fantasy is to drown in Willy Wonka’s chocolate river, you are at the right place. Think of a chocolate’s milky and mahogany colors, creamy and crunchy textures; the intoxicated sensation when it melts in your mouth; the bitter, sweet and salty notes that hit your tongue; and the hard-to-let-go aftertaste. Ah, the delight of devouring the greatest discovery made by man is happiness unparalleled. Its like your best friend and lover rolled up into one tasty package.

Bon appetite chocoholics, as you identify with the list below:

1. Over indulgence is not a thing

Too much chocolate. What’s that? You let go of control when it comes to eating these bundles of joy. And you don’t regret a thing.

2. You order anything at a restaurant that has the word chocolate in it

You start drooling over a menu that has the word ‘chocolate’ in it, multiple times. You never go back to a restaurant that doesn’t serve a chocolate dessert because the only fondue that matters is chocolate!

3. Black or white – you don’t discriminate

Comparing the benefits of dark versus white chocolate, is like a dog trying to catch its own tail. It gets you nowhere. Discriminating against little white pillows of heaven is a sorry crime. Black, white, Lindt or Cadbury, they are all worth it.

4. You want to punch people who say, “Chocolates are not healthy”

Let’s ponder upon the equation: Health = Happiness = Chocolate. A balanced diet is indeed chocolate in both hands, eh? Besides, try eating one when you are upset or angry. It is the voluptuous anti-depressant that makes all your problems disappear. Accept the truth people. Chocolates heal, soothe, enlighten and make everything better.

5. You don’t trust people who say, “I hate chocolates”

Did you just claim that you don’t like chocolates? Either you are lying or you have a severe undiagnosed disease of the tastebuds. Go figure.

6. You dip everything in chocolate, because everything in chocolate is amazing

You know that strawberries are divine when dipped in chocolate, but so are vegetables and pretzels. Yes that’s right. Carrots, asparagus and broccoli taste much better when covered in chocolate. Ranch dressing can be a hit or miss, but this can’t.

7. You insist on a chocolate cake for every friend’s birthday

Its not a celebration unless chocolate is involved. Chocolate or vanilla or lemon, what’s to think about? All other flavors can go home. You can’t wait for the candles to be blown off, the birthday song to be over and the cake to be sliced into big pieces.

8. Sharing and chocolate are two words that don’t belong together

You don’t have to be a mother to realize that giving up your baby is painful. Well yeah, its the same with chocolates. Sharing is caring, but not when it comes to chocolates. It is quite alright to be shamelessly selfish at times. Suggestion: find a chocolate twin when you dine to avoid uncomfortable situations.

9. It is acceptable to eat chocolate at any time of the day

Belgian waffle with chocolate syrup or chocolate chip granola for breakfast. Chocolate coated pizza for lunch. Chocolate fudge cupcake for afternoon snack. Dark chocolate peanut butter brownies for dinner. You are open to enjoying deliciousness throughout the day. Don’t judge.

10. You have secret hideouts for chocolates

Be it a pocket in your purse or a corner in your kitchen, you have a supply of chocolates, for emergency of course. Bonus euphoria when you find one out of the blue, in a forgotten hideout.

In a world of uncertainty and chaos, if there is one thing we can count on, it is the luscious ambrosia called chocolate.

8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

Minimalism is a way to put a stop to the gluttony of the world around us. It’s the opposite of every advertisement we see plastered on the radio and TV. We live in a society that prides itself on the accumulation of stuff; we eat up consumerism, material possessions, clutter, debt, distractions and noise.

What we don’t seem to have is any meaning left in our world.

By adopting a minimalist lifestyle, you can throw out what you don’t need in order to focus on what you do need.

I know first hand how little we actually need to survive. I was fortunate enough to live in a van for four months while traveling throughout Australia. This experience taught me valuable lessons about what really matters and how little we really need all this stuff we surround ourselves with.

Less is more.

Living a minimalist lifestyle is reducing.There are a few obvious benefits of minimalism such as less cleaning and stress, a more organized household and more money to be found, but there are also a few deep, life-changing benefits.

What we don’t usually realize is that when we reduce, we reduce a lot more than just stuff.

Consider just some of the benefits of living with fewer possessions:

1. Create Room for What’s Important

When we purge our junk drawers and closets we create space and peace. We lose that claustrophobic feeling and we can actually breathe again. Create the room to fill up our lives with meaning instead of stuff.

2. More Freedom

The accumulation of stuff is like an anchor, it ties us down. We are always terrified of losing all our ‘stuff’. Let it go and you will experience a freedom like never before: a freedom from greed, debt, obsession and overworking.

3. Focus on Health and Hobbies

When you spend less time at Home Depot trying unsuccessfully to keep up with the Joneses, you create an opening to do the things you love, things that you never seem to have time for.

Everyone is always saying they don’t have enough time, but how many people really stop and look at what they are spending their time doing?

You could be enjoying a day with your kids, hitting up the gym, practicing yoga, reading a good book or traveling. Whatever it is that you love you could be doing, but instead you are stuck at Sears shopping for more stuff.

4. Less Focus on Material Possessions

All the stuff we surround ourselves with is merely a distraction, we are filling a void. Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy comfort. After the initial comfort is satisfied, that’s where our obsession with money should end.

We are bombarded by the media presenting promises of happiness through materialistic measures. It’s no wonder we struggle everyday. Resist those urges. It’s an empty path, it won’t make you happy.

It’s hard not to get roped into the consumerism trap. I need constant reminders that it’s a false sense of happiness. I enjoy stuff, but I also recognize that I don’t need it.

5. More Peace of Mind

When we cling onto material possessions we create stress because we are always afraid of losing these things. By simplifying your life you can lose your attachment to these things and ultimately create a calm, peaceful mind.

The less things you have to worry about, the more peace you have, and it’s as simple as that.

6. More Happiness

When de-cluttering your life, happiness naturally comes because you gravitate towards the things that matter most. You see clearly the false promises in all the clutter, it’s like a broken shield against life’s true essence.

You will also find happiness in being more efficient, you will find concentration by having refocused your priorities, you will find joy by enjoying slowing down.

7. Less Fear of Failure

When you look at Buddhist monks, they have no fear, and they have no fear because they don’t have anything to lose.

In whatever you wish to pursue doing you can excel, if you aren’t plagued with the fear of losing all your worldly possessions. Obviously you need to take the appropriate steps to put a roof over your head, but also know that you have little to fear except fear itself.

8. More Confidence

The entire minimalist lifestyle promotes individuality and self reliance. This will make you more confident in your pursuit of happiness.
