Daily prompt: Junk Food Junkie

The daily post wants to know: What’s your biggest junk food weakness? Tell us all about it in its sugary, salty, glory.

Oh my, if I write about this I will not be able to finish until aliens invade Earth.Right now, I’m drooling just from reading the question. Have you seen Beauty and the Beast before? The scene where Lumière sings ‘Be our Guest’? Okay, I have dreams like that sometimes. Usually, when I’m stressed out and have run out of sweets at my home. One of the worst feelings is going to sleep with a sugar craving.

and this is what I look like when I think I see a cupcake sitting on my desk. Talk about delusional.

 But, let’s see now, what kind of junk food do I like? Well, I love Kernels popcorn, Haagen Dazs ice cream, lemon tarts, cakes, cupcakes, and anything that has chocolate. I always keep a stash of different chocolates –you know, because I may want a kinder egg one day, but feel like a cadbury egg the next day — on my desk. I am obsessed with Lindt and Purdy’s chocolates. I do like Cadbury chocolates, but that’s more of a spontaneous purchase when I’m desperate for chocolate. I honestly try not to shove any sugary treats down my throat as often as I used to, and I have learned to balance my junk food intake. It does help! It is possible! A good way I found to help with my cravings, is to have trail mix in my purse. I love trail mix, it is both sweet and salty. That’s my tip for the day 🙂

 

Is that a chocolate cupcake?

What is home? Baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, no …wait, wrong song! But, yes I do want to talk about this. What is home? It is hard to see during hardships, but it is always there and we often find our way after we drift away. The beauty of this question is that there is no correct and definitive answer, because we all have different views on what home means to us. It doesn’t necessarily mean that home is one thing during a specific time and place, it is whatever we want it to be. I love tea, and after a long day at work home is sitting in front of my laptop, drinking tea, and catching up with everything. Other days, however, I find my home inside the bed sheets while I watch my favourite movies, or I feel comfort just munching on popcorn while I watch Charmed. How about Photography? Of course, that can be home, as well. Painting my nails, doing my hair, talking on the phone, writing on here, my home is universal.

When we feel down, we seek to do the things that cheer us up, and that is home. There are no boundaries to what makes us feel at home, and no one can take it away from us, nor should we let anyone do so. All of us here have something in common, we call WordPress our home; we feel at home because we love to write and inspire. Let yourself be lost in your own serenity and always appreciate the fact you have a home, literally everywhere. Home is where you feel safe, where you feel comfort, and where you forget your troubles. Always remember not to choose the path of self-destruction, because once you get lost in it, it will be hard (never impossible) to find your way back home.
