Office Holiday Party Etiquette

Office Holiday Party Etiquette

It is that time of the year for companies to have their holiday parties. People are looking forward to wearing the latest fashion trends to the party as well as having a good time. But how much of a good time can you have at your office holiday party?

Personally speaking all of my office holiday parties I have attended for the past 20 years, I always remained professional at all times. I never drank at an office holiday party and I always wore the latest fashion trends but I kept my wardrobe professional too.

I witnessed a few of my co-workers act foolish because they drank too much and what they wore was unprofessional to me. Some of the women wore leather pants, micro miniskirts, and tops that showed their cleavage.  The question should you dance at your office holiday party? Of course you should dance but there is a way to dance at your office holiday party! I know I danced. But I danced in a group. I never danced alone or with a male co-worker. I remember I was shocked when my manager danced very close with one of my male co-workers. I thought that was inappropriate and plus my manager was married. She was not professional and she forgot to lead by example.

Here are a few suggestions on how to behave at an office holiday party:

Always arrive early so you can leave early. When you leave early you free yourself from being associated with anything bad that happens. When people come to work the next day, all they can say about you is he/she left the party early. When you arrive early try to greet all key managers who will be at the office holiday party and have a professional light conversation with them. Do not discuss work. By you greeting them and having a professional light conversation with them will allow the key managers to know who you are in the company and they will see that you may have potential to move up. Look your best. Be up with the fashion trends and make sure your wardrobe is neat and professional. For the ladies, do not wear too much make up or perfume. Have that natural fresh look with lip gloss. Do not be the first to eat or the first to get an alcoholic beverage. To play it safe eat before going to the office holiday party this way you will not be starving when you arrive and all you want to do is eat. I personally would not have any alcoholic beverage. I would only have a bottle of water or sparkling water.  Ladies make sure you always get your own drink. Do not trust anyone to get you a drink. You never know who your enemies are at work and which one of them is waiting to see you mess up.

I hope my suggestions were helpful. It is the holiday so be merry and enjoy it. Always remember the people you work with and for are not your family. So you can never be comfortable and let your hair down!

Forgive Yourself First!

forgiveyourself

We are not perfect creatures. We continue to make the wrong choices. We have learned from some of our poor choices. The most important lesson we need to learn is to forgive ourselves. We need to stop being angry at ourselves for the situation we are in now. When we are angry that means we did not forgive ourselves. This makes us angry at the world and blame other people for our choices. Once we take the time to look at ourselves in the mirror and say “I forgive you” the anger goes away. We are able to forgive other people. We are Gods children and he forgives us for our poor choices. It is time we sincerely forgive ourselves to move forward and be happier. No more reliving in your mind “I should have.” It is done there is nothing we can do about it but forgive ourselves.

Why Get Married If You Know It is not For You?

Ladies be very strong and follow your instincts. If you feel for a second marriage is not your cup of tea then do not get married! Most women often fall for the hype of getting proposed to and engaged. When the special day arrives most women have second thoughts. But women ignore it and get married anyway with regrets later in the marriage. Do not get married to please your family or for fear of being alone. Marriage can be lonely, draining, and uneventful. Happy single women have more fun! http://www.tressugar.com/Why-Marriage-Isnt-Everyone-34873155

My Thought for The Day!

Time waits for no one. You are a baby one minute and now you are an adult having to face this adventurous world the next minute. It is important for us to let go of the anger, sadness, worries, and doubts. To achieve this, we have to stop thinking how to make everyone happy. This is the only way to let go of those unhealthy emotions that causes stress and anxiety. We have to learn to only please us and do what makes us happy. When we are forced to live our lives for someone else then we easily become an unhappy and unhealthy. It is funny the second we are born we have a sense of self. It is when we become older we start to lose our sense of self and conform to what you see or hear. life is too short to waste on pleasing the world. We need to be who we are and let the world know we are fine.
