It can wait — No it can’t


I wish I could tell you that I didn’t just finish half of this chocolate bar by myself, but I’d be lying, because I ate the emotional crap out of it.

I have about every burner on my kitchen stove going and I’m waiting for dinner to get done. Word to the wise — don’t wait until you’re starving to start making dinner because you’ll probably be reaching for anything in your pantry at that point to hold you over until you’re done cooking in desperation. Or on a bigger scope of things, don’t wait to start anything in life. Don’t wait for permission, don’t wait for “the right time”, don’t wait for when things “feel right” because you’ll be stuck in the waiting room forever.

“Good things come to those who wait” some say, but waiting around doesn’t bring about good things, that’s luck. When you break it down, luck really favors those who take more chances and create opportunities for themselves. I think the saying should be changed to “Good things come to those who persevere.” The difference between waiting and persevering is that one lends itself to passivity  while the other requires the act of pursuit. Perseverance teaches you to be resourceful with what you have while you’re working towards what you don’t have (yet). If you want something you’ve never had, you must do something you’ve never done. What do you have and what do you need? What will you need to do in order to get it? Write it down and have a clear vision. If you come to a fork in the road, that’s really just a growth spurt in disguise; it’s there to teach you something. Listen to it, and cross that bridge. Whatever you do though, don’t neglect the relationships in your life. Those can be the fastest bridges to burn if you lead with too much haste. In the end make your move and don’t wait too long or it’ll taste a lot like the bottom of this empty dark chocolate wrapper. You may wish and wait all you want for it to reappear but you’re better off looking for food elsewhere.


By the way, don’t get this chocolate, it wasn’t sweet or bitter. It was the most confusing piece of chocolate I’ve ever had.

  1. Thank you soo much for your lovely comment, Rakhi!! I am gladdddd to have found your blog (like I’ve said before already! But it’s clearly an understatement!!!!! LIKE FOR REAL!!!) :p Really really looking forward to your next post now!!!! *FASSSSSSTTTT, post something!!!*

  2. true danger lurks in the chocolate bars at the check-out counter at the grocery store. holy smokes! i always get one of the mini sea-salt chocolates because my stomach is *rummmbling* after finding all my groceries. and as far as perseverance and luck? so true. i always say “the harder i work, the luckier i get.”

    1. Oh I hate those checkout counters! Things always find their way into my cart, those sneaks! I’ve learned self control though now lol and that self control is called pay with the cash you have in your hand or my bank account

  3. Isn’t it weird how when we want chocolate out of emotion we’ll continue to eat it even if it’s not really what we wanted? I feel like I punish myself with dark chocolate sometimes when milk chocolate isn’t available, ha.

  4. I discovered Ritter Sport dark chocolate about ten years ago and had to have it expunged from my memory! I cannot be trusted around it. I would have eaten the entire bar. I for one think you exercised great restraint, but….now I’m going to have to have my memory erased again.

    1. It wasn’t even great. I just kept eating it, waiting for it to taste better, but it never did. The taste wasn’t terrible, it was just kind of bland. I guess I was really hungry, and bored. How are these life lessons: 1) If you have to wait for something to taste better, it probably won’t 2) You make dumb decisions when you’re either really hungry or really bored lol

Leave a little thought...xx Rakhi
