We have holidays for everything.
You’ve got your standard Independence Day and Labor Day.
But then you’ve got the more interesting ones…
National Bird Day
Something on a Stick Day
California Poppy Day
Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day
Looking at the calendar, I realized what these holidays ultimately are.
Days of gratitude.
And everyday, more and more holidays are being added to the calendar. And everyone gets excited because they get to celebrate all the things they love. I’m not so sure commercialized holidays are what will make us happier or more grateful.
Instead, maybe we can start to be grateful everyday for what we have.
A daily practice challenges the person who creates on “inspiration.” We have to mother everyday, and ultimately, it is the daily grind that gives us perspective, clarity and the “high’s” of motherhood. I am exploring if the same happens when I write everyday on the topics that normally light me up – motherhood, self-development, healing and creating.
