Have you ever done something just because you could? Not because you have to or are expected to but just because you were able to. (Or maybe not even able but had he freedom to do it) As bad as many people think the Untied States at least you are generally free to do whatever you want, whenever you want. It is not that way everywhere in the world. If you want to go swiming in the winter, you can. If you want sit on top of a flag pole, you can. If you want to become a citizen of the United States you can… legally. Well today is really more about celebrating freedom than doing something just because you can.
How to celebrate – Do something you wouldn’t normally do. (Just make sure it’s legal!) Look into clubs you can join you normally would not participate in. Buy something you want, not just because you need it.
We all know laughing is good for you. It lightens the mood and sends hormones through your body that actually make you feel better. That leads to the old adage that “Laughter is the best medicine”. Well, it’s not really it’s what laughter does for us mentally that makes us better, not actually a cure. Today was created by humorist Izzy Gesell, with all the best intentions. If you are laughing, it’s pretty hard to get mad at someone… even yourself. Most of us look for the humor in the every day routine. The more we are able to find the better the day goes for us, and everyone around us. And so many things are really very funny. It might be easier to find all the things that are wrong but finding them really doesn’t change anything. Laughing at something is almost like finding a cure, it lets us view things differently and project them differently to others.
How to celebrate – Find something to laugh about today. Get your friends and family all together and have a laughing moment. (If you can’t find anything funny) If you find someone laughing at you, try and join in.
This is an interesting day, it celebrates the spectacular. However what truly is spectacular is the fact that today is just… today. It does not belong to anyone, it belongs to us all. So as you go through your day you need to take note of those spectacular things the world offers, not just to you, but to us all. Things like sunsets, moonlight, blue skies, majestic mountains… all the things God created for us to enjoy that we so often see but do not comprehend.
How to celebrate – Find all the things that we all own. Enjoy people. Look for the good things in life.
