All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.
-Charles M. Schulz
No, it doesn't. Hurt, that is. In fact, chocolate actually helps to alleviate pain. And, in my case, all kinds of pain. You name it: knee pain (from fighting over the last piece in the house), headache (more like migranes, from mulling over the stuff!), toothache (let's face it: if you have a sweet tooth, salt just doesn't cut it), heck, even imagined pain (cravings are real; don't let anyone tell you otherwise!). But, the hardest pain to endure is that of the heart, which pounds and pangs over unrequited love, or agonizes and aches because of a break up, whether it be sudden or anticipated. In any event, chocolate is there to soothe your sadness, sending merry messages to your mind and feel-good pheromones to your being! So, do not despair; this cocoa concoction is really all you need. But a little love now and then doesn't hurt either (haha).
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
And two beds. I'm no rocket scientist, but, the latest love stats claim that even some soulmates choose to snooze solo. Apparently, 25 percent of American couples are saying, 'So long and sweet dreams' in the hallway, and heading to different bedrooms for a night of uninterrupted sleep. Several suspects accused in the stealing of slumber include nasty noises like the roaring of snoring, tactile traumas, consisting of cold feet and kicking, while disturbances due to hot flashes and night sweats exhaust even the heaviest of nocturnal nemeses. Peace and quiet, covers that stay put, and no tantrums over temps, lead to lullaby luxury, when the only thing inhabiting one's body is rest! Relaxing, revitalizing, replenishing, rest. Thus, back to our equation: 2 separate sleeping souls = 1 very happy close couple!
Age does not protect you from love.
But love, to some extent, protects you from age.
It's so true. When you are in love, love and are loved, even if it's platonic love, or sibling love, you feel alive! All your senses are finely tuned, even heightened, so that the world, in general, is a bright, blissful and beautiful place to be. Isn't that how children see the world? It's a joyful and inspiring playground, so much to discover and share. There is definitely a pinch of childhood innocence and a dash of whimsy inherent in the ingredients of love. Have you taken (and given) your daily dose of this wonder drug today? Careful, it must be taken every day for the best results! So, give your loved one a hug, kiss your sweetie hello, and before you know it, you'll be young forever!
Happy Valentine's Day!
