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.
I write everyday because it allows me to voice what is at the surface. Once that is out of my head, I can dig in another layer deeper. My daily writing practice has been my greatest exploration of self and humanity. Sign up here to receive these thought nuggets in your inbox on the daily.
