April 23rd National Take A Chance Day

Most of us are very cautious about what we do. We choose what we think will work, or know will work, playing it safe so we are not disappointed with the results. Well today is about throwing caution to the wind, take chance. Look for a new job, tell someone you love them, sky dive, walk under a ladder, try tea instead of coffee in the morning. It’s not important what you take the chance with, it’s about the challenge and hope that it will work. (Certain fates should never be tempted) You may win, or you may lose, but at least you will have tried. Walking outside your house every day is taking a chance to a degree. (And in some houses it’s even a challenge to walk inside them.) The thing is, you will never know unless you try. Sometimes great things happen when you take a chance, sometimes you just learn a good lesson. The real failure in life is not to try at all.

How to celebrate – Try something new. Talk to someone you have been afraid to talk to. Believe in yourself, even if it’s just for today.

July 26th All Or Nothing Day

Today is the day to go for it! To reach beyond those limitations you place on yourself, and the world puts in your way. It could be something big, or something small… it doesn;t matter, it’s All Or Nothing Day.

How about running for office? Sure, maybe you are qualified or know nothing about any of the issues, maybe you don’t even know where you live but today… that’s doesn’t matter.  All that matters is that you try for it! And frankly, you probably can’t do much worse than those already in office.

Or maybe you want to win a beauty pageant! It no longer matters if you are pretty or physically fit, all that matters is that you think you are beautiful in your own head. Why strive to be anything beyond the norm, that’s not what true beauty is all about… it’s about your soul.

Or maybe you want to be rich! I know I do. The reality is none of us is going to get there but maybe you can win at monopoly and pretend! After all, what would you really do with that stack of gold?


Or maybe your idea of going for it is going for nothing at all! There is nothing wrong with that. After all, if you start with nothing it’s a whole lot easier to go for something!

How to celebrate – Try doing something you have always wanted to do but have never tried to do. Reach for the stars! (You may need a ladder)  Be happy with who you are and what you have.
