Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Thursday Thought of the Day ~ The Power of Chocolate

source: Pinterest
Especially GOOD chocolate!
I was lucky enough to WIN a box of Godiva chocolates. A huge thank you to M.L. Gardner - one of my favorite authors. Her books are a wonderful place to visit, in my favorite era, and that she gives away chocolate too! I love!!

Book 1 of the 1929 Series.
Right now, it's FREE!
{Right now you can begin the journey into her wonderful series with Book 1 of the 1929 Series, Jonathan's Cross - for FREE! Click HERE! }

I never, ever bought Godiva chocolates myself. I always thought is was a luxury I could not give in to. 

I heard they were good, but.....that, it turns out, is underestimating their decadent deliciousness.

More on my chocolate escapades later....but know this:

Chocolate has a power. 

It has the power to bring people together, to relax (especially with tea), and to help us enjoy the simple pleasure in life.

So never feel bad about enjoying a little bit of chocolate. Especially with a good book, and a cup of tea. It's the little things, after all, that make life wonderful.


  1. Well, you do know that you're eating veggies, right? Because chocolate comes from a bean - that comes off of a tree - and trees are plants. So chocolate is a salad.

    Thanks for the link... I'm always looking for new authors to read. :)

    1. a salad, awesome! salad for dessert, salad for a snack, salad with tea, coffee, oh sorry, got lost there.

      I love the 1929 series, I hope you like it too.

  2. Man do I love me some Godiva! Yum. I want some right now, in fact :)

    1. If you follow M.L. Gardner on facebook, she will be doing another giveaway....
      you could win some of your own!
      Her books are great too, check it out!

  3. I do love some chocolate! I bet your Godiva's were wonderful and how nice to receive them with a book. You enjoy every bite, and when you run out you will have to buy yourself some one day in the near future.
    Everyday Inspired

    1. Valerie, I have so much walk slash running to do to make up for all the chocolate this month! lol.
      It was lovely, and I will buy Godiva next time I treat myself. yumm
