In this picture you see part of the inspiration of our title: a rocky road bar. “Rocky road is a type of no-bake slice made up of milk chocolate and marshmallows along with other ingredients, which tend to vary by country.”
It’s always such a joy to see a rocky road bar in the store and to be reminded of the meaning behind our title But why did we actually decide to name the book like this?
The title ‘Rocky roads’ describes the surprises we can face when we decide to let go of who we think we are and face the beliefs we have been collecting over the years from when we are young. How do we really see ourselves? What lies under the way we relate to the world? Why do we wake up feeling not as excited as we want to? Questions like these invite us to face the answers we might not want to see. But walking the rocky roads makes us realize that life can be way sweeter than we thought. And don’t the surprises make it more fun anyways?
p.s. if you ever happen to encounter a rocky road bar, we can really recommend you trying it!!! (If you have a sweet tooth)
p.p.s. send us a picture of your rocky road!
