Not So Hidden Treasures

JANUSFILES2 . . . ENTRY#0014 . . . OPEN:

Not too long ago, I was I was enjoying a couple of Nestle Treasures. If you're not familiar with them, these are individually wrapped chocolates molded in the shape of treasure chests. And as I was unwrapping one, I happened to notice that the wrapper had a brief message printed on it. I wouldn't call it a fortune; more of a reminder to, as Mac Davis once sang, stop and smell the roses.

As I looked through the bag, I saw a number of different messages on the wrappers, all with the same general theme. Like I said, they aren't exactly fortunes, but I thought they were close enough to merit listing them here. I hope you find them as amusing as I did:

Clear your mind
Close your eyes & relax
Enjoy the moment
Indulge yourself
Let it go
Renew yourself
Take a sweet break
This time is yours
Treat yourself

If I see any additional messages like these in other bags of Treasures, I'll present them here as well.
