Most of us have our guard up when it comes to direct-to-consumer drug advertising. We know the butterflies, sunsets and puppies in the TV ads are designed to distract us from terms like "blood clot," "heart attack," "stroke," "seizure," "life-threatening allergic reaction" and "death." We are aware that more than half the ads tell us why we don't actually want to ask our doctor about the new wonder drug.

These Chocolate Cookies are the perfect alternative to your favorite nutty treat with a chocolate twist. The combination of antioxidant-rich raw cacao with creamy cashew butter is a great satisfying treat. The high protein and healthy fat content found in these cookies will even keep you full, so you won’t find yourself emptying the cookie jar anytime soon.

My ego made me do it!

Have you ever screwed up a situation because you were too big for your britches? We've all made mistakes, embarrassed ourselves, and said things that we are not proud of.

When we don't understand or accept our ego, it can quickly spin you into a spell of disconnect.

Don't get me wrong. Your ego will help you create amazing things for yourself and others.  The ego is human nature.
