April 8th National All Is Ours Day

This is one of those days that makes you scratch your head a little. I think we all get the concept of what the creator of this day means, but they never define what it is they are seeking. I mean, the world is ours, the money is ours, the dreams are ours… I get that, but to imply everything is ours seems a bit much.

If they meant everything in the world is ours then to some degree I agree. But not everything in the world can actually be ours! By example, you can plant a tree but you will never really own it. You can love a person but you will never really own them. And then no one can own a cloud, so to say everything is ours is a bit of a stretch.

Or maybe they mean something like Our Gang. Spanky and the rest never really owned anything except for their thoughts and ideas. Yes, they acted like everything was theirs but in the end, it never really was.

And then there were the Three Musketeers. They were “One for all, and all for one” which would seem a bit like All Is Ours but then, it’s not exactly the same. They shared their lives, their swords and their food with each other but history tells us, they weren’t all that kind to their enemies.

Maybe what it means is that all we really need is ours. We think we want a lot of others things but when it comes down to it, we only really need love, peace and happiness. Corny, yes, but All Is Ours to have if we just look for it.

How to celebrate – List what you would share with others. Try and figure out what you really own. Find out what the creator of this day meant!
