“As leaders, we must be aware of the impact of our actions and inactions.” — Misti Burmeister
Chocolate is my medicine… my vice. When someone or something is irritating me, I reach for it.
It’s easy… and cures all my ailments, instantly!
Well, for that instant at least. Which is why one piece of chocolate is never enough.
The taste subsides, as does the caffeine/sugar high, and my irritant returns. So does my second bar of chocolate!
Unless, by the grace of God I manage to stop and ask myself, “What isn’t right?”
Once I realize what isn’t working, in that moment – i.e. “That person’s behavior toward me is unacceptable” – I can address it.
Using my chocolate addiction as a “warning sign,” is nature’s way of helping me eliminate – slowly, over time – the experiences that go against my intuition.
What’s your chocolate?
Keeping it simple,
