August 27th Just Because Day

Have you ever done anything just because you were allowed to (or maybe not even allowed to but because you could)? There always seems to be something satisfying about doing something that maybe you shouldn’t be doing. Now that doesn’t mean illegal or dangerous, just something different from the norm. It could be as simple as taking a train ride just to go or as complex as visiting every tall building in your town. And it’s all “Just Because”. It is believed that Joseph J. Goodwin created today somewhere back in the late 1950’s or early 60’s. This may or may not be accurate but then, who cares, let’s believe that… Just Because.

How to celebrate – Do something you normally would not do. Take a safe risk today. Start a “Just Because” club.

April 23rd Lover's Day

Today is the day set aside for lover’s. Now most of us think lover’s are people who are drawn to each other but there is more to being a lover than just how you feel about another person. It applies to anything that you love, animals, plants, books, tennis, baseball, music, movies… it can go on and on. The general idea is that anything to love, love to see or love to do is celebrated today. And I suppose it is possible to love many things all at the same time. This does not include things you like a lot, you have to love them!

How to celebrate – List everything you love. Spend a little time with everything you love today. If you can’t be with the one you love, love the one your with!
