Day 64 - Today was all planned in advance something that over the festive period I hadn't done as well as I usually would have. The Miracle Mornings are going really well but after such a busy few days and nights I allowed myself to sleep in till 8am. Me and the children got up together and so I decided to include them in my routine. First we sat together and did a short meditation (less than 5 mins) my youngest is only 5 years old and meditation and sound therapy is something both but my youngest all her life have always had experience of. But hey if you only 5 you have things to do and 3 -4 mins of your relatively short life is a long time to sit quiet and still! So then we did some affirmations, I help the kids come up with there's and then we have fun saying them quiet as a mouse and get louder and louder until we are shouting them 10 diffeeemt times. Visualisation we sat down and talked about our dreams and wishes, what they look like , what they feel like. Then we read some of our own books whilst having hot drinks and toast. Then we did some yoga always funny , looked more like a family game if twister ! one time I will get my husband to get the camera out and you will see what I mean, Then I settled down to do some journalling and they did some drawing and colouring. All good fun.
Today we decided is officially our our New Year's Day, although it's the 2nd of January it's a bank holiday and we still not back to the routine of school and work. We took down the Christmas decorations and my husband went into the attic to put them away. You may remember one of my environmental goals for 2017 is to sort and clear this Aladdin's cave of stuff! So we labelled and packaged away just what we needed and he brought down a few boxes for me to sort over this week. Not opened them yet so that will be fun later to do. The rest we are rehoming through sale or charity to try and reduce our footprint on the house and help others.
Later in the day we had planned to meet another level 10 life goal in fun and fitness and go off for a walk togaether which we did along a trail known as Billy Puff route at Weston Beacon Ivybridge ( for those following my journal posts you will know this is my title page picture from a few years ago)
I found a great website to find out more if you are in the area it was a lovely walk. http://www.bbc.co.uk/devon/outdoors/walks/puffingbilly.shtml
It was good to get out in nature , blow the imaginary and possibly real (after being in attic) cobwebs away, achivie our exercise goals and have lots of fun.
I was surpised when I reflected later what a huge amount we had achieved today and how good it all felt. And that was after getting up at 8am.
Todays important message is to get up and live your dream, make each day count for what matters to you.
I always want to say I got up early today when I start these blog post and quite possibly many I have! but at nearly 50 days in it's not really any different now to any other day. Still it is earlier than I was and I am still blogging about my Miracle Mornings and the impact it is having in my life in the vision and intention to inspire others whilst motivating myself and living a level 10 fulfilled life. So today I got up early (feels good to say it!) 5:30 am and I did my SAVERS routine , Sit Spot meditation outside in the garden, followed by affirmations , visualisation , exercise, reading and scribing/journalling.
Today is going to be a fun day, I am off to see a friend in a rural market town called Tavistock in West Devon here in the UK. Only about 15 miles from where I live. We are going to go exploring the town, do some shopping and have a friendly catch up. Something I promised myself to do more of under friends family and fun for my Level 10 life planning.
When you have fun plans for the day it really does help the getting up part. So note to self fun things everyday to be scheduled in!
The feeling today brings reminds me that life is for living and so it's time to say yes to more adventures. I will try and share some of the places I visit and some information through the year through my blog posts so that they may inspire you to do the same or similar or even just give you an idea or inspiration of somewhere you may want to add to your travel and adventure list.
Information on Tavistock
A really vibrant and interesting town, I found out it is the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake, vice admiral (c. 1540 – 27 January 1596) was an English sea captain, privateer, navigator, slaver, and politician of the Elizabethan era.
Tavistock lies on the edge of Dartmoor, around 24 kilometers (14.9 mi) north of Plymouth on the A386, with a population of 11,018, circa 2005.
The town is centered on the paved amenity of Bedford Square, around which are found St. Eustachius Church and the Abbey ruins, to the west, the Grade 2-listed Town Hall, the disused former Guildhall/magistrates’ court buildings, and Pannier Market buildings behind the Town Hall.
The pannier market and town hall has a host of events and facilities available and is a real treat to visit.
