Quick catch up

Hello all.  Just a quick note of gratitude or as one of my clients called it “A Pollyanna day”.  Sometimes life throws you a curve ball; I like to try and see the positive in most situations.  January 2015 is certainly testing my positivity already.  My husband had a car accident and although not serious, made a mess of the car.  My positivity – at least my car isn’t a write-off and can be fixed.

This week hubby (again!) has been involved in a work accident.  Although run over by a 2 ton roller; my positivity – at least it was only his lower leg, not his hips/body/head.  Again, hopefully should be repairable.

Both situations require a change to routines and some inconvenience but they could have been a lot worse.  Our boys have been understandably worried about their Dad.  I’m grateful I’ve been working on my patience and the ability to re-think situations.  This has helped me explain the positives to the boys and ask for their help “pulling together as a team”. 

Needless to say, Reiki and meditation have been invaluable to:-
·         Help me stay calm on my hurried journey to the hospital
·         Remind myself a car is just a piece of metal
·         Assist with hubby’s physical healing
·         Calm the tearful emotions of our teenage soon
·         Provide a physiological support blanket to our youngest son sitting huddled on my lap

The couple of glasses of wine and the support of our amazing family and friends have been invaluable too.

I hope your start to 2015 hasn’t been quite as testing.

Resolutions, Goals and New Beginnings

Happy New Year dear readers.  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.  Our Christmas and New Year wasn’t quite as relaxing as I had hoped but nevertheless still enjoyable.  It was lovely to spend extended time with my family.

Taking a break from work between Christmas and New Year meant it was easy to find the time to start my New Year’s resolutions of keeping fit both mentally and physically.  A combination of daily Reiki, Meditation and Yoga along with physical exercise has ensured I feel optimistic about 2015.  I’m currently participating in 30 Days of Yoga with Adriene ( via @yogawithadriene) which I’m loving.  Running is not something I’m great at but I’m beginning to enjoy the health benefits so I’m also in a ‘Too Fat To Run’ Jantastic Team
Now I’ve announced my January resolutions it’s given me even more motivation to keep going with them – gulp!

So have you set yourself any goals or resolutions for this year?  I’d love to know in the comments below (announcing them to the world helps your resolutions or goals to stick).  Are they physical challenges?  Maybe you’ve even thought about a change in career (or a small business side-line).  If you enjoy natural, organic skincare and would like the opportunity to save 20% off future purchases, I’m looking for members to join my Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic team – contact me for further information.
