Like Comment

A few of us have got together and decided to extend the wake up challenge to 2017. Chris is happy with this and will dip in occasionally and he is happy for us to continue with this platform. We are taking turns in setting the challenge so it’s even more interesting! The challenges will set every two weeks so there is plenty of time to participate. Anyone can join in and we would love to know how you got on and how taking part helps you live a more conscious life.

I’ve been asked to set the ball rolling so here we go.

In Wales we celebrate our own version of Valentine’s day called St Dwynwen’s Day and as this falls on the 25th of January I thought we could start with a romantic challenge ! As we live in autopilot we tend to take the people we love for granted, so this first challenge is to surprise someone you love with a little treat- it doesn’t have to be a partner, it can be a friend or a family member. It doesn't have to cost anything, just a little time and effort. Just do something to make them feel special. Do something you wouldn’t normally do, surprise them and see how it makes you feel.

I'm a single parent of ONE lovely lanky teenager.. I live in deepest rural Wales . My 'proper' job is in marketing and events but I am also a trained reflexologist, masseur and reiki giver (go figure!) I also look after my Mum who is in her late 80's, my dog Ted, my cat Black and my hens and dream is to have a small holding and offer people holidays in my teepee and maybe the odd therapy as you can see I am a mass of contradictions.... I like to walk, do yoga, eat salad and visit new places but I also like to drive fast, Feast ice lollies, vodka on Friday's with friends(, which leads to dancing in my kitchen) my coffee , and staying up late... I can be outgoing but also extremely shy so like the rest of you I am still trying to figure it out one day at a time...
