It's Friday, Love


{ Sweet Potato Fries from Pearl }

This week's It's Friday, Love is dedicated to chocolate. I've been trying really, really, really, REALLY, really hard to get back on track since session ended. The good news is its working. The bad news is we're still a few weeks away from normal. But that's ok, I'll get there. That being said, I'm really - apparently one of my favorite words- bad at depriving myself or just telling myself I can't have something. So after lunch most days I do like to have a tiny piece of chocolate or a bite of something sweet. It's like a little cherry on top and it makes me feel like I've had a complete meal. 

At the office we have a candy bowl for this very reason. When I'm there I'll generally pick out a piece after lunch to satisfy my aforementioned craving. Satisfy, that's an interesting word. Randomly, I picked up some high-quality super dark sea salt chocolate the other day and that has been my treat the past week. Just a square. Just enough. Enough, that's also an interesting word. What I've noticed this week is that little square of wonderful ingredient-filled goodness has been enough. I haven't even thought about having a second square. 

With the Snickers Bite Size it's a totally different story. I won't even be hungry, but I'll stare at the bowl. I won't pay attention when people are talking. Eventually, I'll break down and go get a second or maybe even a third piece. I'm never satisfied. I get so mad at myself when I grab that second piece. I don't even feel very good afterwords- my body doesn't necessarily crave sugar. No offense meant to the Snickers, please don't sue me. 

It's just funny how these little coinkidinks in life can have broader meanings, broader implications. I was reminded that I can shove all of the crappiness I want to into my mouth, but it will never satisfy me as much as one small piece of lovely treasure. I'm talking about chocolate......... but I'm not. See ya Monday.......
