One of my favorite quotes of all time is “There’s nothing a little chocolate milk can’t help.” Of course, I’m the one who said it, but that is beside’s the point.
But think about it….it’s chocolate, it’s milk….what can go wrong? Wait…what? You’re lactose intolerant? Chocolate gives you hives? The Nesquik Bunny gives you nightmares?
Okay…well, I did say it was MY favorite quote and I believe it. I do love chocolate milk. And when I feel down or need a pick me up….or just ran a half marathon, there is literally nothing better than a cold swig of chocolate milk. But that’s just me.
So, what about you? What picks you up when you’re down? What is it that ‘a little of can’t help’? Everyone’s got something, but a lot of people forget about it. So, go out and find that thing that lifts you up and make sure you have some on hand. Because there are always bumps in the road of life, it’s how we manage those bumps that makes us greater human beings.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying go on a Skittles binge, though that does sound fun….wait a minute. I’m saying that reward is a nice finishing touch to be grateful for when you accomplish something you’ve set out for. OR even if you fall short, but need some motivation, then a little treat is always helpful. A LITTLE TREAT….I have to put that in there. I don’t want the American Heart Association to come after me for promoting heavy cake eating contests, though that sounds fun too….wait a minute…
