July 13th Fool’s Paradise Day

So what is your paradise? I think most people think paradise is a beautiful lush island somewhere they do not have to work and everything is served to them at their whim. But I also have friends who’s paradise is a snow covered field in the middle of winter. And a few who think being downtown New York City is paradise. The point is, there probably is no paradise on earth. If you are on that island if someone is going to serve you that means you aren’t alone and where there are people, there will be problems. So, paradise is only what we create in our minds. It’s a nice place to visit, dream of and reach for but it will probably never be real. That’s why it’s a fool’s paradise.

How to celebrate – Dream up what paradise means to you. Go there when things get rough. Let every fool have their own paradise.

August 22nd National Be An Angel Day

Angels are considered to be among the most honored and cherished creatures that have ever existed, or not existed, according to your beliefs. The day was created by Jayne Howard Feldman on August 22nd, 1993. I think she was on to something. if we all try to be more like Angels we will all be far better off, whether you believe in Angels or not. I personally believe there are Angels, some may even be human.

How to celebrate – List those around you that are Angelic. See how many Angels you can list. Pay it forward today!

August 22nd Be An Angel Day

We typically think of Angels as God’s helpers, soft and kind on the gentle side, warriors on the more aggressive side.  They are capable of doing great things, both large and small. They can guide us, protect us, lead us and watch over us but you do have to believe.

On the more human side, they are those who generally do good, are good and fill our hearts with joy. In my opinion, you can’t make yourself an Angel, that is fake, but you can become an Angel (And still be alive) you just have to let your heart guide you through your day. Jayne Howard Feldman believed an Angel helped her create this day on August 22nd, 1993.

Most of us don’t stand a chance. We look at what is happening around us, to us and the anger builds up until we lash out. An Angel rarely lashes out but when they do, watch out! You don’t stand a chance against the power they hold.

You can be kind and caring, loving and generous and still not be an Angel. It is indeed a lofty goal to reach for. And for those non-believers, when an Angel touches you, you will believe and become that there is more to life that the little bitty part of this world that you occupy.

How to celebrate – Create your own definition of being an Angel. Try to be an Angel by putting others ahead of yourself. If you do have a Guardian Angel (Which you most likely do)  try and figure out who it is.

January 9th Play God Day

If you could play God for a day, what would you do? Let’s forget about the power to choose between life and death, that’s too complicated and too controversial. Just the power to do little things, like make someone happy or change the course of events. God is love, therefore your job would be to bring love to everyone possible.

We all have our own version of what Heaven might be like. But what if you could create a little bit of Heaven on earth? Well you can, maybe only for a moment, but isn’t that worth it? God offers us our dreams and hopes… sometimes you have to wait for them, or maybe the master plan will change when we aren’t even aware of it. But how nice would it feel to create a situation where you could be at least a small part of making someone’s dream come to life?

And playing God might also include helping our four legged friends. Do you think they have dreams? If they do, and I choose to think they do, the most they dream for is someone to love and someone to love them. That’s easy enough to answer. Whether it’s a person or an animal, giving them a reason to live is certainly playing God.

And love sometimes comes to us, when we least expect it. What makes one person love another? There is no logic, no reason, no explanation. It just happens. When you fall in love with someone you give yourself completely, maybe not because you want to, but because you have to. So loving someone else is God like. You cannot see love, you cannot see God, therefore both, or either, are miracles.

And if you are going to play God, you have to live in a kingdom. It may be a kingdom no one else can see but that doesn’t matter, if it is real to you it is real enough. So in a way, don’t we all play God a little bit everyday? If you care for someone, help shame a dream, give someone else a reason for living or just love them with all your heart you are already playing God. You are a miracle making everyone you come in contact with another miracle of their own.

How to celebrate – Imagine how God might handle something and try your best to do the same. treat everyone you meet as though they were God, after all you don’t know that they aren’t! Create your own Heaven on earth, a place you can go when everything seems to be going wrong.
