This website is coming up on her 1st birthday next month! I've truly enjoyed making, baking, and thrifting my way throughout the last year. If I'm going to be completely honest though, I imagined that this site would have a bit more going on at its one year mark than it does currently. I'll take full responsibility. I have about 4-5 posts in my back pocket that I've developed, executed and photographed but have yet to sit down and actually upload! Alas, I do have a full-time job at busy non-profit organization, a bustling social life, a frequented gym membership, a charming husband, and an active rescue dog that often keep me from spending hours curled up in my little corner of the internet.
Such is life! Perhaps I can give myself a small break, I am here now aren't I? I brought a big red ballon just for the occasion. If you too have a project (or two or five) as the case may be, that you desperately love, but struggle to find time for, I hereby give you my heartfelt permission to take a deep breath, and let go of any guilt or self-reproach you may have been holding on to. Nothing stifles the creative can-do spirit like feeling discouraged by your supposed slow progression. There. I just took my own advice. Whew.
I've been brainstorming ways to reconnect with my vision for this site. I'd like to post more often, perhaps with more brevity and less concern about having things, "just so". Most of all I'd like to empower myself and others to pursue a balanced and healthful approach to wellness and living graciously.
I think I've found a fun way to hit all of the above goals! In year two of BL (Beccalani... duh) I am I'll be exploring my personal ABCs of Happy Healthful Living. I'll feature each letter of the alphabet with a corresponding topic, food, concept, habit, or activity, beginning with the same letter. Each post with further the mission of living your best life. Committing to all 26 letters of the #BeccalaniAlphabet will help me stay accountable to meet my goals. I hope!
Please join in and share your experiences as I work my way from A to Z! Mahalo for being a part of this journey. Stay tuned for the letter "A" coming soon. Any guesses on what "A" will stand for?? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
Happy (almost) bday to us both! You're part of this too.
