If you live in Australia and have a sweet tooth for Ben and Jerry’s, we’ve got some news for you. And you might not be very happy about it.

The company made an announcement that they’re banning customers in Australian stores from ordering two scoops of the same flavor of ice cream. Why? To protest Australia’s inaction on marriage equality.

That’s right — until same-sex marriage is legal, you can’t have those two scoops of Half Baked. Try again.

The announcement was met with mixed reactions. Some people, for instance, thought it was a clever way of getting people talking.

Others were upset with how the company chose to handle the situation.

Maybe Ben & Jerry’s didn’t think it through completely…

Still, at least it’s getting people talking? Maybe withholding people’s sugar fix really is what the world needs to fuel change. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

Cut yourself some slack. One of the biggest regrets most people have about their 20s is that they didn’t enjoy them more. And I’m not talking about “buy more expensive dinners, take another trip to Thailand” type of enjoyment. I mean having the ability to take a deep breath and sip coffee in the morning knowing that you have done, and are doing, your best.

“These essays are slowly changing my life, as the title promises. As my friends’ birthday come along, they will all be receiving a copy of this wonderful book.” – Janie
