Whether you’re the type who makes New Years Resolutions or not, a new year is the perfect time to regroup, look at the year past, what you can learn from it and where you can go from here. Usually these things don’t just happen by themselves, you have to make the effort to sit down, relax and contemplate.
If your happy with where life is taking you, that’s fab, but most of us want more, and in doing that it takes effort.
I’ve had some crazy ideas this year. Some of them I’ve followed through, some didn’t work and some I just sat on. I don’t know where life might take me this year but I do know if I don’t make the effort to change it’s direction I’ll still be in the same place next year and that’s not where I want to be.
Once we’re thrown off our habitual paths, we think all is lost, but it’s only here that the new and the good begins.” – Leo Tolstoy
The Contemplation Drink aka White Peach Iced tea.
Place 4 cups water and 1/4 cup caster sugar into a saucepan and bring to the boil. While this is happening finely chop two very ripe white (or yellow) peaches. Once the water has come to the boil, add the peaches and 4 bags of tea. I have strong loose leaf tea so I used about 4 teaspoons. Cover with saucepan lid and leave to steep for a few minutes. Strain through a reasonably fine sieve, cool, add a squeeze of lemon and refrigerate.
