As the year end inches closer and closer, I find myself introspecting a whole lot. I find myself thinking about the year in terms of achievements, high points, low points, successes, failures, learning points etc. Introspection and a constant need to be a better more evolved human(e) being makes me think of the year that’s gone by in a learning light.

Life is like an ice-cream cone

“Life is like an ice-cream cone, you have to lick it one day at a time.”Charles M. Schulz

I scream for Ice-Cream! Always! Now more since I have been off sugar for the past almost 2 years…yup I do crave my cold, sweet and completely decadent ice cream fix.

I remember as a little girl, whenever I was in a bad mood my daddy took me out for ice cream. In those moments, while licking that sweet wondrous treat all my bad moods would turn sweet.
