Thursday's Post: THE CHOCOLATE DIARIES by Karen Scalf Linamen

"The healthiest friendships, Kris said, blossom between people who don't have to leverage the other person's weakness to feel better about themselves, but between people who can recognize and celebrate one another's strengths and successes." (p. 59)
Doesn't that make you think, it sure resonated with me.  I am not one who is drawn to self help books, but CHOCOLATE DIARIES really spoke to me.  There are tough times we all face and we end up asking the big question, why me?  Why not them?  Everyone's life has peaks and valleys.  It is our response to the tough stuff that counts.  In CHOCOLATE DIARIES, you will be inspired to view these valleys in a new light.  You will find humor and love in the pages, along with some "sweet secrets".  If you love chocolate, but love yourself more this book is for you.  Making even the smallest change in your attitude can make huge changes in your life.  I strongly recommend this book.


Book Description...

If you’re hungry for more joy, reasons to laugh again, ideas to help you heal, and reliable hope leading to a sweeter future, this journey will leave you satisfied.

Funny, transparent, and uplifting, The Chocolate Diaries is like taking a road trip with good friends who are wise about life. And while you’re at it, indulge (just a little) in the quirky recipes for concocting chocolate delights out of whatever ingredients you can round up in your kitch.
