The day has come – The Challenge begins! What will be your first challenge, and job knocked off the Christmas ‘to do’ list?
I was sitting down last night, after one of our busiest trading weeks of the year, thinking how exhausted I was. Then I remembered I had a challenge to run, and a challenge to participate in. Like you, life can get pretty hectic. I set up this challenge to help encourage us all to get small jobs done ahead of time, so Christmas planning is less stressful. So, as I sat down to think about my challenges I set myself an easy task for day one. Simply research, and hopefully place my first order/s for Christmas presents, on the internet. So, that’s what I’ll be doing tonight.
I know we shouldn’t feel guilty about sitting back and enjoying ourselves, or taking a moment to relax, unwind, or simply have a coffee with great friends and family, when our lives are otherwise very busy. But, sometimes I do. So, I’m also looking forward to taking some time out during the next 12 days for me, and even as I write this I feel a sense of relaxation and calm as I know I’m making time for myself during such an hectic time of the year.
Now, I know some of the other tasks will involve a bit more work, but I’m looking forward to completing them. So, I hope you will share in the comments section below, or on our Facebook page what your first Challenge will be. There is also the option of sharing on Instagram with #my12daysofchristmaschallenge.
Thanks again for signing up to this Challenge. I’m so looking forward to sharing the ride with you all.
Your fellow Challenger, Nicole
