“Like”

IMG_4540 Dove chocolate is one of my guilty pleasures. My favorite kind is the dark, it’s so creamy and delectable. My mouth waters just thinking about it. Last night after dinner I opened one up. The inside of the wrapper said, “”Like” someone in person.”

What perfect timing. I’d been thinking that same thing all day, but felt too lazy to do anything about it. It had been one of those days, where nothing bad happened, but I didn’t feel good about myself.

I wasn’t productive and felt a bit guilty. I kept thinking I should be making myself more useful, maybe volunteering somewhere, or visiting with my parents or a friend who’s going through a tough time.

I should be “liking” someone in person.

I get so busy on the computer. I do most of my work for our business on it. I write and answer emails, keep up with family and friends on Facebook, and of course, write posts and read other blogs. Sometimes I fall into the trap of keeping up with social media, instead of spending quality time with people who mean so much to me.

It doesn’t help to mope around feeling guilty. My motto is “Just Do It.” So that’s exactly what I need to do. Make plans to get out and be with those I love.

This weekend my husband and I are having dinner with two of our best friends. I’m hoping to talk with or FaceTime my sister who lives far away. And my mom and dad are coming over for Sunday dinner.

But right now, I’m going to pop one of those delicious chocolates in my mouth!

  1. Oh Dove! So delicious and oh so smart! I love the milk chocolate with caramel.
    I agree about liking people in person. Social media is everywhere and sometimes it’s so much easier to get in touch with someone through face book then in the phone. We definitely need to make more of an effort :).

  2. Sometimes it seems there’s no escape from the computer screen but it sounds like you have a reasonable balance with the real side of life and ‘Likes’.I’m glad as the guilt can be very distracting otherwise.

  4. I love those chocolates too! What a great thought to like someone in person. Sounds like you’re on the right track. I know those days. I’ve been stuck in them recently, eating crap, feeling fat, tired, and meh.

    • Hi Kathy, it’s so nice to meet you! I’d love to take credit for that beautiful Thanksgiving table, but I have to admit it was a stock photo. But I did have a pretty table, set for 18. I’ll bet yours will be lovely for Christmas dinner. Thank you so much for the comment and follow. Merry Christmas! Take care, Jenny
