Occupying little hands

Standard

School’s out for Summer!…… school’s out forever! Well made not forever thanks Alice (hopefully some of you are old enough to know the song I’m referring too) 🙂  It is however definitely out for Summer though here in NZ and out for Christmas.

That means that aside from all the normal Christmas chaos there are also little (and possibly not so little) people to organise and entertain.  There may also be those last minute presents that you still need to collect so I thought that tonight I would share with you a e-booklet I created a while ago ‘Creating home-made gifts with kids’ or ‘Christmas on a Budget’.

It has 10 ideas in it for creating and making.  Ideas that your children can create by themselves or with little supervision – good for everyone!  You can find it over here to use and share as you will. If you like it I’d love to know 🙂

I’m off to have a break from blogging and reflexology for the next few weeks so that I can concentrate on getting my next e-book finished.  So that means that there won’t be any more Blogs from me until the new year.

Hope you all have an amazing start to 2016 and I’ll see you then.

The ultimate Valentine’s present

Standard

Well here we are post Valentine’s day and you may be wondering why on earth I would be blogging about it now!  The thing is that this Valentine’s day was so different for me that I really wanted to share.

You see this Valentine’s day is the first that I have actually forgotten (well until the day before that is), the first one I haven’t actively planned for and yet it was one of the best, maybe the best,I have ever had. 🙂

I pondered on this as I went on my morning run and it wasn’t until another woman ran past me that it hit.  I have finally come a bit closer to accepting and loving myself regardless of the world around me. You see normally I would have begun berating myself for being less fit and hence slower than the other woman passing me or I would of begun a long story of why I was slower than her. In the past I would have started planning Valentine’s day way in advance so that the day, and myself, would feel special and loved.

In short I wasn’t loving my life, my place in it or myself enough to accept that who I was, was in fact special and wonderful. I am definitely still on the path to self acceptance and think that it will always be that way as life unfolds however it felt great to know that I was a little further along to really loving and accepting myself.

So my challenge to you (and myself) is to treat everyday like it is Valentine’s day.  Instead of giving gifts to other loved ones however let us all give ourselves gifts of tenderness, compassion, love, forgiveness and understanding as we journey along.  After all, when all is said and done, our love for ourselves is the one that impacts most on our lives.
