We’re shuffling off to Buffalo at an unGodly hour to fly out early Wednesday morning for Reno via Chicago.
Thank you for all you’ve done for me, the list of benefits to my health and my long term retirement plan is a long one by now! I am grateful for the “absurd” in my life…
I’m putting finishing touches on packing for my 5th trip to Reno, Nevada since 2007. I’m excited to be traveling with some best friends to meet with more best friends to spend a few days learning and celebrating together with our mentors, trainers and leaders.
This is my 6th year aboard the Healthy Chocolate team and I am more excited than ever about what’s happening in the evolution of medicinal chocolate!
As of February 28th of this year MXI Corporation officially owns the phrase:
To say, “we’ve come a long way Baby!” would be an understatement. I don’t think any of us could have known the journey we were about to embark upon almost 5 and a half years ago. Much has transpired with this category-creating company and I have had a blast being part of the story as it unfolds!
This is the 4th International General Celebration I have attended, each year the room gets fuller of happy, healthy, prosperous people, all excited by what they have found, most of them completely by “chance” or “coincidence” [neither of which this author believes in].
Below are some highlights from previous years, I will keep you posted as this year’s events unfold:
I heard his name from across a crowded room on a cold January morning and since that moment, life has never been the same….
He is complex, dark, alluring, seductive, smooth, rich, totally satisfying and fulfilling! Too much of him leaves me intoxicated with bliss, he enhances the quality of my life experience and provides me complete sustenance and frequent, luxurious reprieves from the (sometimes insane) world outside my own. He enhances my personal passion and makes me feel sexy, youthful, full of vitality and strong in my own mental and physical powers. He helps me to stay focused on my path and motivates me to be a better “me” from a place deep inside.
I have totally surrendered to my gnawing desire for him several times a day for almost 2 years now. Whether it’s upon waking; one of the many times throughout the day or [ooh-la-la] before I go to sleep, every time we come together my world shudders at a cellular level. After having him inside me all day so frequently, the outside’s toxins are swept away and somehow [long loud sigh] reality is a little more peaceful and clear. He is my fountain of youthful being…my body, mind and spirit is left uplifted, refreshed and renewed…
He has helped me consistently remove over 40 years of personal trash, and continues to take out the garbage every time I request it of him, his efforts are unmatched by any other I’ve been with for any length of time!
Like myself, he was formed from and born to Mother Nature and assures me life will always be full of vitality, abundance and prosperity if I let him and others like him into my life profusely. He reminds me that he is here for me and not going anywhere anytime soon. He was here long before I came and will be here long after I am gone. And while I am here, he is my personal body guard, swift and powerful in the punch he packs when he stands in protection of me from unwanted intruders!
Sometimes I call him “The Dark Knight” and other times I refer to him as “Mr. Bean”, he always answers to either one and adapts to every situation he’s consumed by, at any time he can be focused and determined or fun and goofy.
He is loved by almost all my family and friends, unconditionally showing up at his best for anyone that will have him, male, female, young or old! And yet, he is often misunderstood by many, he remains a mystery in the ignorance of those who haven’t fully explored the depth of his generous and giving nature.
Alas, even in the light of new and undeniable discoveries into his true intentions and nature, association with him is still considered “sinful” by most. Many choose to relate with him “behind closed doors”, living in secrecy and fear that they will be judged weak in their self-will or lascivious in their desire for him and everything he represents.
As we continue to dance together in perfect synchronicity my world expands and strengthens in its stability every day. I am never without him now, he goes everywhere with me.
As my Grandmother used to vigorously say when in the presence of such an attentive and charming hunk,
“Oooooh I could just eat him up!!”
“There is nothing in the world like chocolate. It is luxurious, sensuous, delightful, passionate, inspirational, sexual and exciting to all senses.”
– David Wolfe “Naked Chocolate”
“‘Twill make old women young and fresh;
Create new motions of the flesh,
And cause them long for you know what,
If they but taste of chocolate.”
– James Wadsworth “A Curious History of the Nature and Quality of Chocolate”
“It’s not that chocolates are a substitute for love.
Love is a substitute for chocolate.
Chocolate is, let’s face it,
far more reliable than a man…”
– Miranda Ingram
“After about 20 years of marriage, I’m finally starting to scratch the surface of “what women want”. And I think the answer lies somewhere between conversation and chocolate.”
– Mel Gibson, Actor
“Chocolate is a perfect food as wholesome as it is delicious, a beneficent restorer of exhausted power, but its quality must be good, and it must be carefully prepared. It is highly nourishing and easily digested, and it is fitted to repair wasted strength, preserve health, and prolong life. It agrees with dry temperaments and convalescents; with mothers who nurse their children; with those whose occupations oblige them to undergo severe mental strains; with public speakers, and with all those who give to work a portion of the time needed for sleep. It soothes both stomach and brain, and for this reason, as well as for others, it is the best friend of those engaged in literary pursuits.”
– Baron von Liebig, German Chemist, Mid Nineteenth Century
“The persons who habitually take chocolate are those who enjoy the most equable and constant health and are least liable to a multitude of illnesses which spoil the enjoyment of life.”
– A. Brillat-Savarin, Physiologie de Gout
Did you get yours today and was it good for you?
Surrender to the absurd…
Call me and I’ll hook you up. There’s only one that’ll do it for you and there’s an abundance of him to go around…
