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.
