Come to my Sparkpeople birthday party!


Thursday, June 06, 2013

Today (Weds, June 5th) was my 32nd birthday. Last year, I threw a pool party here on SP to celebrate, and I want to do something similar this year. I'm posting this late in the day, but the beauty of an SP party is there's no start or end time, so everyone can participate whenever and however they want!

This year I'm having a big photo shoot for everyone! I gave myself a photo shoot goodie to set up the party. Joining in the fun is easy - give YOURSELF a goodie that you want to bring to the party. Then comment here on my blog with the reason why you gave yourself that goodie and/or what accomplishment you've done that you want to celebrate.

My sparkfriends are pretty awesome. Many of you are very supportive, which is great considering I'm on such a different journey than most of you. I like throwing these parties because it reminds us all that we need to celebrate that we accomplish more than we realize. I also love seeing what goodies people give themselves and why, because then I get to know my sparkfriends even better. Plus we get to be proud of our efforts as well as support the efforts of others.

Last year I gave out a bunch of goodies as invites; unfortunately this year I'm exhausted and don't have much focus so I won't be doing that. Instead, I'll give a goodie to anyone who joins in my party by giving HIM/HERSELF a goodie then posting here about why they chose that goodie and what s/he wants to celebrate.

Ready? Set. CELEBRATE! Pose for the camera! Work it! Love yourself! Show off your success! That's it! Woohoo!

    Happy birthday! Hope that you had a great one. I'm bringing a seedling to the party -- I love plants. All they need is a little attention and TLC, and they grow and blossom -- sorta just like people. :-)

    Thank you for the Spark Goodie!

I gave myself sunshine, to remind myself that even on my hardest days, there are brighter days ahead; and on the days I am feeling blue, I know I can come to Spark and get support and encouragement from my friends here.

    Well, I made my decision. The goodie I gave myself is a good pair of Workout Shoes.
Without good shoes it seems impossible to exercise.

    What a great idea. I am bringing sushi to share, and i am celebrating 1 year of sparking for me. I have lost 25 lbs and have gotten so much mobility back. emoticon

I'll have to do some thinking about the goodie I want to give myself, too tired to make any decisions right now, but I think it's a great idea!

I'm wishing you a HAPPY 32nd BIRTHDAY!! I gave myself a goodie too, a book, because while I am at your party, while everyone is enjoying themselves, I will read a short story out loud to everyone. It will be a funny story, and make everyone smile, laugh, and feel really good. And YOU will be smiling too!!
Huggs,
Phyllis

    Hope you have had a very happy birthday!

What did you send to yourself? As a matter of interest?
I chose balance board. A learning aid, for the life lesson I need.

Happy 32nd birthday! emoticon

Love the idea of your spark birthday party! :)

The goodie I gave myself was a key. It represents being open to new opportunities and serves as a reminder for me to put my guard down (throw my shyness out of the window) and be open to trying new things, talking to different people, etc. I know a lot of possibilities are in my hand and I hold the key. Now I just have to put that key to good use! emoticon
