This was definitely a first for me. “Never have I ever…” Never have I ever thought these 4 little words could cause so much damage. lol I have heard the term Chocolate Wasted but until tonight did I truly understand what that was. OH WOW! I’m a chocolate lover but after tonight I vow to keep away from chocolate for a good while. Now let’s see how long this last. Tonight our group of ladies from our women’s ministry had our Sock Exchange Christmas Party. We shared so many much needed laughs and stories with each other and ended the evening playing a game that in the end resulted in all of us getting completely wasted on chocolate…candy…brownies…cakes. Oh my goodness. But it was well worth every bite. I haven’t been feeling myself these last couple of days and in all honesty could not find a thing to write about. My mind had literally drawn a blank for 2 days now. I have procrastinated on writing the final chapter in my book and lately it’s felt as if my life is spiraling out of control. Today I had to take a step back and just pull away from everything. I needed time to collect my thoughts and clear my head. Sometimes in life we become overwhelmed with our day to day routines. When the holidays are around or major events we are planning for, things can get even more hectic and stressful. We keep going and going trying to do it all. We have that super hero energy like we can do it all and save the world too. But then we crash. Our minds want to keep going, our bodies are energized to keep moving but we all get to a point where they both get in sync and say…ENOUGH! I NEED A BREAK! That was me today. With the craziness of life and the added stresses of Christmas shopping, Christmas parties and not to mention heavy traffic, this is a good time to really take a step back and slow down and catch your breath. I needed to laugh today. I needed to relax and just enjoy the moment. I needed to get back in sync with God and become centered once again. Keeping God as your center helps keep you focused. Having God in my life helps me so much. I am stronger now to handle the days where I just want to fall apart. God helps me pick my head up when I’m feeling down. God knows exactly what we need when our lives are spiraling out of control. Today, God knew I needed to get chocolate wasted. Tonight I laughed so much to the point of having a belly ache lol. Or maybe that was the chocolate. So my advice when you feel overwhelmed and stressed like I found myself these past couple of days…Go Get CHOCOLATE WASTED! It works!!!! But most importantly, center yourself with God. Remind yourself over and over, just like I do, that God should always be the center of our lives. He will renew your thoughts and strengthen you.
Psst…God Loves You
