Happy 2017! I am sure you are working on your New Year’s resolutions, I know I am! If you haven’t started, it’s never too late. Ask yourself:
What do I want to accomplish this year?
As I was looking for some inspiration, I found this great list by Personal Creations. It’s a list of tips on how to be a happier and healthier you.
One of my resolutions this year is to just have fun posting on bbandyaya.com. I’ll put my own spin on ideas, learn from others, and make celebrations fun and interesting.
There was one tip in particular that caught my attention and captured exactly why I want to take this journey:
I have a lot of family here in Florida and just counting the women, there are about 30 of us! If you think birthdays, that’s 2.5 birthdays per month! And yes we celebrate most of them!
The tradition for adults is to meet at the honored guest’s house, share a meal, chat, and blow out the candles. We have gotten fancy on the cakes but I want to help bring it up a notch. Don’t get me wrong, we usually go all out for major celebrations but like many women, we try not to make a fuss over ourselves.
So, here is the plan, I will ask each person these six questions:
- What is your favorite style (i.e. retro, art deco, bohemian)?
- What are your favorite colors (2-3)?
- Circle or Square?
- What is your favorite cocktail?
- What are 5 things that you like (i.e. Red Wine, Lotions, Shoes)?
The idea is not to break the bank but to focus on 1 or 2 things and help make each birthday a special one.
Stay tuned for the first celebration in mid January! Sorry, yes you have to wait [smile].
I hope this resolution idea helps you make a small change this year as you celebrate your friends and family. Get Inspired!
