Magnum Ice Cream Cake with Thermomix Instructions

Magnum Ice Cream Cake with Thermomix Instructions


To my Beautiful Friend, 

I have had the sense of late that you need someone to tell you how wonderful you are. That perhaps you have forgotten.

I have been watching you strive for an elusive perfection. I have been hearing your self-doubt, your criticisms and what I fear is your internal voice.

So I am taking this moment to let you know that the body you are endlessly trying to change is another’s dream. That it has carried and birthed and raised remarkable children. That it has withstood difficult times and still got you out of bed each day.

The body that you cannot accept is beautiful and perfect exactly as it is. It is yours. You can’t have anyone else’s and no-one can take it from you. Love it. It’s gorgeous. It holds your story.

I can see that perhaps you are not in your happiest place right now. You are too hard on yourself, I say that often don’t I? Your to do list is long, your jobs are many and the goals upon which you score yourself are unattainable. I wish I could say to you, “You don’t need to do it all, you don’t need to do more and more and more. What you do is enough.” If only you could see that it is enough. 

Let go of the should’s and be proud of all that you accomplish and that you accomplish so well. It is your life, your game, play it your way.

Take this moment to see yourself how I see you. Take this moment to be your own friend. Focus on the kindhearted, genuine, caring person that you are and be willing to love yourself right now. Not when you manage to squeeze a bit more into your day or stay a little calmer. Not when you are fitter or when you lose another kilo. Right now. You are perfect and beautiful and everything that you need to be right now.

Love yourself as I love you. Let the rest go. This, I suspect, is where your happiness lies.

Your forever grateful to have you in my life friend,
