I wanted to share my results from doing my first 5 Things Friday! I was so happy with how it turned out. I had a lot of fun adding more color to my weekend, and it truly did bring me more happiness. It pushed me to get creative and do things I don’t normally make time for. I hope you joined in the fun, if you didn’t - that’s ok... we got the next 5 Things Friday coming soon! Stay tuned!
1. Get flowers for a vase: This is something that I LOVE to do, but I don’t do it consistently. I totally should, it was a total mood booster! I mean, who doesn’t love flowers? And daisies… They’re the friendliest flowers, don’t you think? I got my idea from Oh Joy! I enjoyed taking her idea and making it my own version. She is one of the most colorful individuals out there, in my opinion, and so creative. She totally inspires me! So naturally trying one of her brilliant ideas on adding colors brought me a lot of joy! (no pun intended… or maybe intended!)
2. Flash a smile (wearing lipstick):
Whenever I was out and about, at the park or the store, I tried to keep my smile on. (Not in a crazy person way, but in a more natural way... as to not creep anyone out!) I smiled at people I made eye contact with or individuals who helped me along my day. This made me feel great and helped me focus on seeing the amazing individuals put on my path. Brooklyn joined in the fun too!
3. Have a dance party:
Let’s get real, if you know me, I am always dancing! Every day is a dance party!! I have a lot of nervous energy and having a dance party is the best way for me to get it all out. It’s a total stress reliever for me! Let’s just say I am a “colorful dancer”… I dance to the beat of my own special drum, that’s for sure!
4. Wear a pop of color! With fall sneaking it’s way in, I thought it would be a great idea to follow Kelle Hamptons Fall Bucket List, and paint my nails a rich, deep merlot color. I rarely paint my nails anymore. Since I had kids, it’s a rare occurrence. So, this was a fun one for me and my kids totally joined in on the fun. We will be doing this one again soon!
5. Add some color to your plate:
This one was to encourage me to eat a little more heathly and in a fun way. I was more mindful of adding fruits and vegetables, which is good, but I also added some colorful treats too... because, I am all about finding balance! Ha!
Get ready for this Friday… The focus will be “Getting Cleaning”!
