Hi all! As 2009 quickly approaches I’ve been thinking about ways to break out of my comfort zone and in the process help my teammates that would like to break out of theirs. Reflecting back, I’ve realized that some of the best times I’ve had or the most satisfaction I have felt was doing something a little foreign to me. Certainly getting on a plane to go meet people I had never met before (the bbest weekend in Boston) falls under that category but look how fabulous that turned out to be.
For sure it is cozy in our boxes and there is nothing wrong with that but isn’t it fun to shake things up a bit? I’m not suggesting that its time to run away and join the circus, just stretch out a bit.
So this month, lets start out with baby steps. I find the bbest members to be a very artistic and creative group of people. I think most of us have other interests and hobbies that maybe we’ve talked about a little but maybe haven’t shown each other. Or maybe we have a desire to try another medium. Well our challenge for this, the first month of the new year, is this….. Make something that we, your teammates would not expect you to make. Take a photo and email it to myself, joonie or six. We will put it on Flickr with no name attached. Then we will all try to see if we can guess which art belongs to which member. You know you enjoy guessing games, who doesn’t? And if you haven’t been very active on the team now is your chance to show us that you would love to get to know your teammates (and yourself) a little better.
It’s a win win for everyone!!!
I’d like to toast one our favorite members, Rosegardenfae for making 08 the year she stepped out of her norm. *applause here*
And on the theme of boxes… here are a few of my fav’s. No need to step out of these.
Joon, Six and I would like to wish all our bbest friends a very Happy, Healthy, and Fun, New Year! We love this team and are grateful for all the support, laughs and most importantly, friendship you have given us!
