Now that you’ve mastered a holiday dish, you don’t need to wait for a potluck to share it. You can host a potluck dinner!
One of the things I learned when evaluating an event is to replace “What went wrong” with “What can we improve.” If we only pinpoint what went wrong, the bad things, or the mistakes, we can end up dwelling on them. We can end up looking at the negative and that is discouraging. Instead, we need to take it a step further and figure out how to improve. What can we do so the mistakes don’t happen next time? How can we do things better or different to reach our goals?
We can apply that to life, and even to holiday parties. My single ladies, if you’re tired of being set up in dinner parties or potlucks, then host your own. Or if you tend to feel like the odd girl out in a party of couples or families, host your own. Or maybe nobody in your circle of friends can seem to find the time to get together. Host your own dinner party, get together, or potluck.
And it doesn’t even have to be big or complicated with table settings and place cards. Although if that’s your thing, go for it! But I’m not the party type of person, so a get together or a dinner with a handful of my closest friends is great in my opinion. My friends and I had a game night recently. We stayed in my living room with a bunch of board games, the food and drinks on one table, and caught up with each other as we ate and played. It was laid back and a lot of fun.
Enjoy the spirit of togetherness in the holidays. Sometimes, that means you’re the one who needs takes the initiative to host a dinner or party.
