Back in 2012 we wrote a special Easter Challenge Blog to help everyone to share a really happy and productive Easter and so we could not let Easter 2013 go by without sharing our special Easter Challenge with all our readers.
The concept of creating an Easter with a difference is such an interesting one as we both agree that we do not celebrate Easter in the ways that we could, if we opened our minds. We are all too busy sometimes rushing through life that we forget to appreciate our own life and the world in which we live.
When was the last time that you did something thoughtful for your partner, a family member or even a stranger? Come to think of it, when was the last time that you did something thoughtful for yourself?
We know that we really have to pull ourselves up about this sometimes because it can be so easy to get wrapped up everyday things, forgetting what really matters.
What about fun? When was the last time that you set aside time to have fun? We all deserve some time out to do the things that we enjoy, but so often we put our own enjoyment to one side in an attempt to please others, or in order to do everyday tasks.
Life is about loving yourself enough to take time out do all the important things that we enjoy, as when we are happy, we are better equipped to enrich the life of others. Be that family, friends, work colleagues or total strangers, we all have the right to be happy and to enjoy life.
We were thinking back in 2012 about how nowadays we seem to take so much for granted, our loved ones, our work and our homes and how sad this is when there is so much to be thankful for and so much fun to be had. We were pondering about what this blog was going to be about, when all of a sudden it came to us. What if we were to turn Easter into the most fun time yet that we have had this year, creating a truly Happy Easter?
Our philosophy in life is that we should live every second enjoying what we do and what we have, from our chosen career, to our home and our relationships. Every day of our life can be about making a real difference to our own life and the life of all those we come into contact with.
Now the big moment! What exactly goes into creating this Easter Challenge? Well that is pretty simple really, we are proposing that we all use the Easter period to reflect upon all the wonderful things that are already part of our life, who we are and where we are heading.
The challenge this Easter for everyone reading this blog is to make Easter 2013 the most enjoyable Easter you have ever had. A truly Happy Easter Challenge!
It really is so simple and all you need to do is…
- Take a small piece of paper and list each of the four days from Good Friday to Easter Monday and then write next to each day three things that you would really like to do that you think would be fun. It can be anything from skydiving to going out for a relaxing drive.
- Next to the list of fun things to do, list four things that you could do that would help another person. This can be anything that you know someone would be grateful for. It does not have to be anything big! Getting up and making a special breakfast for a partner is something that another person would be grateful for. Do something that helps a friend or neighbor.
- Now at the bottom of the paper, draw a smiley face. Make it the most smiley face you have ever seen.
Now during the Easter period, make sure that each day you are getting through your list of fun things to do for yourself as well as those that include others. The end result is that you will be having a happy Easter yourself, as well as encouraging others to be having a happy Easter period too.
Try our Happy Easter Challenge 2013 and make this Easter the most happy and enjoyable yet. It is so simple and you deserve it!
By the way, the smiley face at the bottom of the page………..That is you!
The smile that you give out to all those you come into contact with during the Easter period and then beyond will be returned to you more times that you could ever imagine.
