A Recipe for Self Love Serves: 1 Time: Indefinite Ingredients: (3 or more hours) of uninterrupted ‘you time’. (1 heaping tablespoon) of respect (No more than 50 decibels) of quiet (3.5 cups) of thoughts (1) thing that you love to do (but say you don’t have time for) (1 cup, preferably large) of your favorite hot beverage Preparation: * Take the uninterrupted ‘you time’ and gently whisk in the respect and the quiet. * To this, add the thoughts, a half a cup at a time, stirring in between until the thoughts are no longer self depreciating. * Then, let the mixture sit for a few hours while you prepare the thing that you love to do. Ignore the voice in the back of your mind saying that it’s useless and has no practical purpose.

* If necessary, waft the scent of your steeping mixture to remind yourself just how important it is to take care of yourself. * After you’ve finished with your thing that you love to do, a pinch of it to the mixture. * Stir once more to ensure that the thing that you love to do is incorporated throughout the entire mixture. * Bake for 45 minutes, and when cooled, drizzle over your favorite hot beverage (coffee, tea, and cocoa are all good options). * Eat a slice whenever you feel exhausted or burned out. Remember to replenish your stores at least once a month for optimal self love. - CLAIRE MCNERNEY / PLEASANTON, CA
