Our Easter Challenge 2012
This year Easter falls on the 8th April and over the last couple of days we have been thinking of writing a blog especially for Easter, but a blog that is uplifting and different.
Apart from mentioning the obvious, that we have a perfect selection of exquisite handmade Easter cards, we want to write about the possibility of creating an Easter weekend with a difference.
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 those so called ‘chores’. 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 have been thinking 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 2012 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. Having almost completed a book on the subject, we felt compelled to share our Happy Easter idea with the world via our blog.
Now the big moment, what exactly is it that we are thinking? 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 2012 the most enjoyable Easter you have ever had. A Happy Easter Challenge!
To do this 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.
Then next to the list of fun things to do, list three things that you could do that would help another person.
Now during the Easter period, make sure that each day you are getting through your list and 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 2012 and make this Easter the most happy and enjoyable yet. You deserve it!
