Each calendar day, something is celebrated somewhere. That is
especially true for the month of October when there are other ways
to celebrate October besides Halloween. The first Friday of October
is World Smile Day, which is done to celebrate the kind gesture of
smiling at someone. You also have peculiar celebrations
like Garlic-Lovers Day, Cinnamon Roll Day, National Cheese Curd
Day, National Fossil Day, and a plethora of trivial yet
light-hearted celebrations for each day.
From this, we can learn about the importance of celebrating each
day. We have to treat it as a gift and a blessing. We have to spend
it wisely. However, it is impossible to celebrate with a weary
heart and a negative attitude.
Things can happen in a blink of an eye. Rain can come in the
middle of a sunny day. But you can choose whether to be gloomy as
the weather, or you can dance in the rain. There will always be two
sides to a coin, and unlike flipping coins and guessing whether it
lands on heads or tails, choosing how you react is not a matter of
chance, but choice.
We can always try to lean on the better and brighter side of
things. Negativity will only wear us down and add more burden,
physically, mentally, and spiritually. Remember, after every rain
comes a rainbow. A promise of new beginnings and the beauty of
colors. Just like life. It may sometimes be blue, with
monochromatic shades of black and gray, but it can also be like the
colors of the rainbow. Every day is a chance for a restart – a
chance to choose the better choices, a chance to do better, and a
chance to turn things around. You might be mired in a seemingly
irreversible situation, but we can always find our confidence in
the word of God.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all this through him who gives me
Life is beautiful. Celebrate it today and every day.
