Scanning ahead I checked out my birthday, August 7: Lighthouse Day, Particularly Preposterous Packaging Day and … wait for it, Professional Speakers Day. Who knew?
I’ve not yet found a Bad Choices Day or Good Choices Month. I’m sure they are there, somewhere.
Better yet, maybe I could create a companion business; on-line greeting cards for each of those ‘days’ and ‘months’ we celebrate. OK, not WE, but certainly somebody out there sees themselves as a group of special folks needing attention and recognition …
Meanwhile, I’ll focus on working my way through today, tomorrow and whatever comes along …
Seems to me that more than knowing/celebrating, what day it is, it seems more important to know ‘who I am going to be today’.
What is your purpose in life?
We should know that, shouldn’t we?
If we spend a lot of time figuring that out – and still don’t know, we should spend more time on it because it seems so incredibly important.
