Growing up, I did not like dark chocolate.  I thought it was too bitter.  Now I think it’s divine!

So when research said that dark chocolate was good for you, I was thrilled.  Now we have a medical excuse to eat dark chocolate.  But of course, there are those pesky calories to deal with.  In today’s chapter, I sing the praises of chocolate eaten moderately which let’s admit it, is hard to do.  So limit your stash of dark chocolate at home or else your waistline will pay for it.

This chapter is about enjoying life and laughing.  It’s hard to feel old when you laugh.  I have many reasons to laugh around my house.  Their names are James, Ethan, Noelle, and Lucy!  When a telemarketer calls our house, my husband James will turn it around and say “Do you have any money I can borrow?”  That usually shuts down the call and makes all of us laugh.

Who makes you laugh?  It might be a friend, family member, comedian, or actor.  Take time this week to spend time with someone who makes you laugh out loud.  Oh, and don’t forget.  YOU may be the person who makes someone else laugh.  When you cheer someone else up, you cheer yourself up in the process!
