‘There is Nothing More Contagious Than Joy and Happiness’
How often do you tell yourself to live a life of love, joy and abundance, and how often do you forget, or you allow something to irritate you and get you down and all your good intentions fly out of the window.
I try my best always to live by example, not by preaching; but by doing, and not by professing, and as the saying goes…… I Walk My Talk! To live your life and not be dogmatic is in my eyes how it should be. For me, there is nothing more contagious than joy and happiness which comes from living close to your heart and your beliefs, and going about your work and loving all as much as possible. Yes, I hear you! I know it is not always easy but I honestly believe that when I share the love of my work it spills out to so many people.
Last weekend Bill and I had so many fantastic attendees on our ‘Mini’ Ulitmate Health Experience Workshop . So many wrote to us after the event and said ‘they could feel the love’! through the fun, the teaching and the passion and commitment we both have to try and make a real difference to the health of humans, animals and the planet. All of them were excited and upbeat at the end of the course and will now do the same; by sharing what they learned at our workshop with family, friends and colleagues. That is what makes our heart sing; so by us ‘giving’ they are now ‘sharing’. To give the gift of health to others is the biggest joy for me.
I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your love, friendship and support over the past year and for sharing my work with others.
I wish you all a wonderful season of loving, sharing and giving that will spill over into 2015 to bring you all much love, joy and abundance along with great health every day.
I am off to make some delicious truffles and other ‘party food’ ahead of time for friends and family. We will be having a glass of bubbly or two with many of them over the holidays.
Here is the recipe for my mum’s favourite treat that I make her. Enjoy!
10 ounces chocolate (Two 100g bars) 100% cocoa content, chopped coarsely
Zest of 1 orange
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 vanilla pod
Dash unrefined sea salt
1 cup full-fat coconut milk
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Cocoa powder, for dredging truffles
Toss chopped chocolate in a mixing bowl with the zest of one orange, cinnamon, and the contents of one vanilla pod and a dash unrefined sea salt. Bring coconut milk and coconut oil to a slow simmer in a saucepan over a medium heat. Pour coconut milk and oil over the chopped chocolate and seasonings then stir continuously with a spatula until the chocolate is thoroughly melted and the mixture, or ‘ganache’, becomes thick. Transfer the mixture to a plate lined with parchment paper, molding into a log as best you can, and allow it to harden in the refrigerator overnight. After the chocolate has hardened in the refrigerator, remove it from the parchment paper and carve it into irregular bite-sized chunks.
In good health, have a fun holiday season and give the gift of health to someone you love this Christmas.
