Oh, this uncertain life……..
I’ve always struggled with control. I think it became my mind’s coping mechanism after going through an emotionally troubled childhood. I used to have this incessant need of having to know every single detail of what’s going to happen in the day so that I get ready for it.
I was terrible at having to be spontaneous at things, I just couldn’t. If something came up that wasn’t planned for or wasn’t on the agenda, anxiety would take over and I wouldn’t know what to do with it.
Self-love has often been seen as akin to selfishness, vanity and being full of it! This is far from the truth. Self-love centres on self-esteem and loving your inner being. No matter how good your booty looks in them jeans, if you do not love what’s under your skin, then real self-love cannot manifest within us. Self-love is the art of realising what you deserve. You don’t have to sit in front of a mirror thinking you’re above everyone else. There is a distinction between self-love and narcissism.
Chocolate Mousse & Caramel Filled Easter Eggs
For a chocolate eggstravaganza this Easter, my chocolate mousse filled easter eggs, with an indulgent caramel centre will be a guaranteed winner with kids AND adults.
I use duck eggs instead of hen eggs as they have a wonderful white shell. Spray the outside with an edible gold spray for something really special.
For an adult only twist, add in a tsp (to taste) of Amaretto to the chocolate mousse once all the ingredients are combined.
