November 20th Beautiful Day

So what is a beautiful day to you? Is it the weather? A person? A place? I suppose it is whatever you find beautiful and that’s different for each of us. Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder, as it should be. So today, make sure you find sometime today to spend some time with something you find beautiful, it will make your day more beautiful and probably make others who work with you, live with you spend time with you have a more beautiful day as well.

How to celebrate – Have a beautiful day. Surround yourself with beauty. Enjoy your life.

March 12th Plant A Flower Day

With winter on it’s way out and spring on the way in, it’s time to think about planting things that make our lives more beautiful and rewarding. Since the general act of growing most flowers is relatively simple it is a great way to brighten up our yards and put a smile on someone’s face. That’s not to say it doesn’t require some care and effort, planting anything takes at least a little care, watering and weeding. But with just a little effort on our part, we can add to the beauty of life and make the world a better place to live.

How to celebrate – Plant some flowers today. Make sure the ground isn’t frozen. Tend your garden.

September 30th National Mud Pack Day

For years the craze was to get mud packs to cleanse your skin of all the oils that create blemishes and there are those that still believe it helps. Of course, it needs to be clean mud which is a bit redundant! It does, however, work well on bee and wasp stings until you can get somewhere to properly treat the sting. It is also fun for wrestling and making something already difficult to do, more difficult to do. But we can celebrate today for all it is worth and wonder just how much money was actually made selling clean mud packs!

How to celebrate – Try a mud pack. Go play in the mud. Create your own clean mud puddle.

April 29th Greenery Day

You would think that on Greenery Day we would celebrate trees or plants or maybe even Kermit the Frog but today is all about the 124th Emperor of Japan Hirohito’s birthday. Born in 1901, Hirohito served the Japanese people until his death in 1989. He lead Japan through some of it’s best, and some of it’s worst , times. His part in World War 2 will never be known for sure, though he was put on the same level as Hitler at one time he did not face the same fate that other war criminals faced. It is good he is remembered for the beautiful country Japan was before the war and after the war because the ugliness it caused during the war should never be forgotten.

How to celebrate – Visit Japan. Read about Hirohito’s involvement during World War 2 and decided his guilt or not for yourself. Spend your day gardening.

November 20th Beautiful Day

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What one person finds beautiful another might not find attractive at all and that’s okay because we aren’t seeing the same thing at the same time. Nature can be beautiful though immediately following a hurricane or tornado its not so pretty. A person can be beautiful on the outside but very ugly on the inside. Love can be a beautiful thing unless you have been treated badly by it. So maybe instead of trying to have a beautiful day we should just try to have a good day because we can find something beautiful about our lives today if we try, even when so much of it looks ugly. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so look for what is beautiful to you, not everyone else.

How to celebrate – Find something beautiful today. Create something beautiful today. Make a list of what you find beautiful.

September 30th National Mud Pack Day

Do people actually use mud packs anymore as a part of their beauty regimen? There was a time when it was all the rage but I really don’t hear about people using it all that much anymore. I assume that people heard somewhere about using mud to help remove bee and wasp stings, helping to get stinger out. It’s natural to assume that if it can remove the stinger from skin it can remove other impurities from your skin. Well whether you use mud packs or not, today is the day to celebrate that use. If you don’t use mud to make yourself beautiful, maybe it’s time to give it a try!

How to celebrate – Use a mud mask. Do you need clean dirt to make a mud mask? If it works for your face, shouldn’t you try using a mud mask on your body?

October 10th World Sight Day

Oct. 10th World Sight Day

Today we celebrate our gift of sight. Not that life can’t be valued if one has no sight but to get up every morning and see the day we have been given (also a gift) should bring you joy. The idea of the day is to encourage people to get eye exams and that is a good thing. Sometimes we take our eyesight for granted, but over the years as it changes and blurs you do need to get it corrected. You wouldn’t want to miss those sunrises, or sunsets, because you didn’t take the time to make sure the world really was as you saw it! They say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, beauty is there whether you see it or not, so make sure today you have the opportunity to see it for as long as you can.

How to celebrate – Get an eye exam. Look closely at things with the idea you may never see them again. Check out your prescription for your glasses.

October 7th Bald And Free Day

Every morning one gets up, brushes their teeth, has a cup of coffee and combs their hair… that is, if they have hair. There are advantages to not having hair, it’s a least one step less every morning of your daily routine. It also tends to make you look meaner so people don’t mess with you as much and some think it makes a person look smarter. It has become very fashionable to be bald. I am not sure why. Many women are choosing to be bald these days as well. It does make a statement! One true advantage is that you are generally cooler in the summer (though you will have to wear a hat to keep from getting sun burned), but then in the winter, your head is colder. Compromise, wear one side of your head with hair, the other without. You’ll get noticed!

How to celebrate – Wear a bald cap for a day to see how you would look. See how many celebrities you can name that are bald. Be free!

September 30th National Mud Pack Day

Mud… well, it’s always been there so humans had to find uses for it. It has always been good for minor skin issues, like bee stings and some rashes. (It also causes some rashes) It has been used to build walls since when it dries, it’s pretty strong. It’s used in combat to make soldiers invisible to the enemy and, of course, it’s something fun for kids to play in. However, someone figured out that it was really good to put all over your face to refresh your skin and open your pores. My guess is, some soldier came away from battle covered in mud and when he washed it off he must have remarked how beautiful he felt. From there, it got passed on to civilians who agreed once they tried it. Now it is a regular facial component. Naturally you need to use clean mud.

How to celebrate – Try a mud pack facial. Go outside and play in the mud. Make some mud pies!

November 20th Beauty Day

For some it might be a beach or crystal clear water. Maybe a lush island somewhere filled with tropical flowers and beautifully tanned native inhabitants. Warm summer breezes, golden sunsets and the sound of the waves gently crashing against the shore.

Or maybe it’s a beautiful field of wheat swaying in a gentle breeze and showered in sunlight. Better yet are the cool evenings with the moon shining down on the amber fields of grain. Maybe even floating over them in a hot air balloon.

The point here is, beauty can be found in anything if you just look for it. When you wake up this morning think of all the good things instead of the bad and you will find yourself having a beautiful day.

How to celebrate – Find the beauty in the day. Study a painting you can keep in your head. Smile and make someone see the beauty in the day.
