During Christmas last year in South Africa, my boyfriend drew a peace sign in the sand on a beach.  At the time I thought it was very cute and a perfect time for a nice little photo opportunity; however whilst reflecting on this time last year, I realise that a “peace of me” is missing…a lot can happen in a year, or even just over a month.  I need to get this peace back.  To do this, I need to think about how peace is made.

This is my Recipe of Peace – as time goes on and the oven heats, I will aim to have a peaceful heart and will hopefully gain the peace I once felt back…like the peace on this beach on the other side of the world.


Empty the cup of negativity – not allowed in the kitchen

A million tablespoons of happiness

A dash of positivity

365 smiles – to serve for a year

Mix with essence of peaceful thinking

- Heat to rays of sunshine

- Share with all

1) Drain away any negative energy and hate.  Do not let this in the mix – it will rot the ingredients and leave a sour taste

2) Add a million tablespoons of happiness.  This is a key ingredient to bring out the full flavour and life of this recipe.

3) Throw in a dash of positivity…this goes a long way.  This will absorb well with the happiness, creating a fluffy cloud-like mixture.

4) This may take a while, but adding 365 smiles is what makes the mixture thick, with happy feelings and self-confidence.  Tastes better with added laughter.

5) Lastly, pour in essence of peaceful thinking to complete the recipe.  Whisk together and your peace is taking shape.

- Heat the oven to 27 million degrees, like the rays of the Sun, and your now ready peace will fill you with light, warmth and peace.

- TIP: Share with the loved ones in your life and the new people you will meet.  Just a taste of this new found peace will enrich their lives just as much as your own.
