When you woke up this morning was your first thought, “what is special about today?”
Or are you one of those perky, positive, people that says “EVERY DAY IS SPECIAL TO ME”?
I happen to believe that “IF” everyone could wake-up and think that every day was special…and that they too were special… and EVERYONE WERE SPECIAL, we could all live in a safer and happier world.
Did you know that June 1 is “NATIONAL SAY SOMETHING NICE DAY”? Neither did I until I looked at a list that tells me why “this day, June 1, is special”. In fact, it tells me why there is something to be aware of, appreciate, observe, and to be grateful for, EVERY DAY!
Some of these special awareness days or topics are hilarious to me….BUT they can also be deeply meaningful to others.
Below is the link I use to find out what I should care about each day. This list will tell you what is recognized and observed by each day of the year. These lists tell us Nationally and sometimes Internationally…What we should eat…What we should do…What I we should wear…Where we should go…and how WE should FEEL ABOUT ANY GIVEN DAY.
EVERY DAY IS A DAY OF RECOGNITION, AWARENESS. OBSERVANCE or APPRECIATION OF SOMETHING.
I can map out my entire day just by checking this site. But first, finish reading my post, because you might get lost or trapped in the enormous list of what you should care about on every day of your life!
Today, on June 1, 2022, I discovered that it is:
National Running Day:
I do not see myself celebrating this, but millions of others will be out there running on this HOT June day. Since today is also“National Olive Day,” I will shake up a few martinis and give a toast to all the runners out there.
AND…today is also “National Nail Polish Day”
This is just a reminder that perhaps I should stop biting my nails. Whereas others may show up at their nail salon and ask for some extra-long “Cardi B nails.” They can paint them GREEN since Wednesday is “National Green Day.” Of course, I would wait until Saturday for “National Purple Day” (I prefer to call it “National Violet Day”)
Did you know that EVERY DAY is National or World “SOMETHING DAY” for multiple things?
I dare you to guess how many Appreciation or Awareness days there are in the month of JUNE..
I dare you because today (June 1) is “DARE DAY”
If you guessed there are 88 special recognition days in June you would be correct. If you guessed wrong, you could have been right if you made your guess on March 16th which is, “EVERYTHING YOU DO IS RIGHT DAY”
If there are only 11 Federal Holidays in an entire year, why are there 88 Special Observance Days in June alone?
BECAUSE…Everyone loves to feel special about something other than just the GLORIOUS day they were born.
Some days are recognized by the Government as legal holidays, some are made-up holidays such as “Festivus for the Rest of Us” (made famous in Seinfeld, season 9, episode 10)
We have special days that were created by industries or brands just to sell you things on their special “made up” appreciation days. I wonder if September 16 was a slow day for avocado sales or perhaps a big batch of avocados were going bad on this day when some brilliant mind created “National Guacamole Day?” Frankly, I could celebrate “Guac-day” every day of the year.
Did you ever wonder who created these special days?
Was it the clerk behind the counter at 7-Eleven that suddenly said,“Today is July 7, 2002…7/11 and I declare this day to be National 7-eleven Day and we should give away FREE Slurpee’s”.
Now that we have discussed a few of the 88 things that were EXTRA-SPECIAL ABOUT TODAY…..This one STOOD OUT to me and looked like something that I should support and DO!
Today is “NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION RECOMMITMENT DAY”
In January I featured a post on “New Year’s Resolutions.”
Everyone seems to care about their health, fitness, and weight EVERY January. January is “National Healthy Weight Month.” In January there are sales on all thing’s fitness and weight loss. Those sales are a BIG REMINDER that we just might be a little pudgy and could stand to take off a few pounds (or 50..or 100).
So many of us make a NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION to lose weight and get fit. And we keep it for 1 day, a week or even two weeks. You were a “Resolution Rock-Star” if you made it past January 14 this year, which was the official “QUITTERS DAY” of 2022.
We really try to lose the same weight (or more) every year. Someday we will lose those pounds, but important things always come up that de-rail us. Things like “National Popcorn Day” on January 19…“Pizza Day” on February 9…“Beer Day” on April 7…or “Hamburger Day” on May 28. If we only had the willpower and strength to make it to “NEVER GIVE UP DAY” on AUGUST 18th,
Well, why not start over on this lovely “NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION RECOMMITMENT DAY”
