Women and Friendship, is it as good or better than Chocolate?

I'll start this article by admitting that I am a full-blown "chocoholic." I loverepparttar way eating a piece of chocolate makes me feel. It's so indulging, satisfying, and to me isrepparttar 148671 ultimate reward or excuse to instantly lift my spirits, calm my nerves, and just make me happy. This lead me to thinking about how few things in life are as good or better than chocolate.

Now, I would certainly have to rank being a Mom atrepparttar 148672 top ofrepparttar 148673 list, but another big contender is Friendship. I think it is truly disappointing that we as women allow something as rewarding and bittersweet as friendship, to regularly take a back seat to our careers, husbands, children and busy demands of life. When you compare eating a piece of chocolate to spending time with friends, you will find a lot of commonalities...

·Friendship and Chocolate are both actually healthy for us. ·Friendship and Chocolate both make us feel good. ·Friendship and Chocolate can be addictive and both make us eager for more.

Did you know that researchers and scientists have suggested that chocolate contains compounds that can help maintain a healthy heart, good circulation, and reduce blood clotting? And, a Nurses study at Harvard Medical school found that women with friends were less likely to develop physical impairments as they aged.

I know for me personally, whether it's a few minutes onrepparttar 148674 phone, a nice e-mail shared, lunch/dinner, or movie time spent with a friend, I am left feeling refreshed, happy, and ready to sing, "I feel like a Woman!" While I truly love being a Mom, I need friend time for me (even though half of it may be spent talking aboutrepparttar 148675 children anyway). It just feels great to spend time with my girlfriends to gab about everything underrepparttar 148676 sun, including love, relationships, finances, parenting, - and occasionally important topics like Brad Pitt!
