Daily Quote: September 23, 2021

You’ve got to recognize,
there will never be another you.
It has nothing to do with ego;
it happens to be the truth.
There will never be another person the same.
There’ll never be another you.

For all of those who can’t hear we celebrate International Day of Sign Languages.

For all of the animals without homes and locked in Shelters we set aside today as Remember Me Thursday. Instead of paying $2,000 for a custom breed, why not go to your local shelter and save a lost or discarded soul. Free one animal from the shelter and give them a warm, loving home. Adopt don’t buy.

The day after the fall equinox is set aside as Inergize Day. Be selfish for one hour today and just be by yourself as you Ingergize and prepare for the long nights of Fall.

Good-bye summer 2021. Hello Fall 2021. There are some people who actually love Fall. They like warm fires on cool nights, hot chocolate, pumpkin spice everything….. To me it is just an approach to the end of the year. So enjoy it while you can, the colours are short lived as we head towards winter.

For those who are young at heart and in love today is Proposal Day!

For those who are unlucky at love, today is National Ice Cream Cone Day.

In the middle of Canada’s Federal Election 2021 we celebrate the International Day of Democracy. For my Canadian friends and followers, be certain to vote. It is your civid duty and democratic privilage.

Today is also the First Day of Yom Kippur. The last day to atone your sins in the 10 days of repentance. A day of fasting and prayer. Jews seek to purify their souls by denying the bodily pleasures.

Today is also Green Peace Day. So save the whales and save the world.

I decided today, Marco Polo’s birthday should be celebrated by Marco Polo Day. Not the swimming pool game, but the explorer and adventurer. Celebrate by nurturing the adverturer in you. Go for a walk or a short trip to enjoy the variety of life and flavours of the world around you. Discover something new to you.

Kayaking on the Old Ausable Chanel lets me re-energize my soul. Counting turtles on my way to the far bridge of the loop I think I missed a few on this log. I counted 10, but there were 3 adjacent to the log that I missed before I looked at the photo evidence.

So on National Live Creative Day be certain to do something a bit creative in your ordinary day. A little bit of arts and crafts or painting, or just dance.

Then after working up an appetite celebrate Eat a Hoagie Day followed by National Cream-Filled Donut Day.

Pause to remember World Suicide Prevention Day. Suicide leaves those behind wondering and questioning what could we have done differently to prevent this terrible loss. Often the answer is nothing. So, instead everyday be available to listen to others and offer understanding. Support your local Suicide Prevention call in lines and carry on.

Others are battling for their lives as we remember Stand up to Cancer Day. Looking for cures and new methods of early detection. Fight this terrible disease.

This Second Friday in September is also National Hot Dog Day. So whether you buy one from a street vendor or enjoy one on the BBQ in your own back yard, enjoy a hot dog today.
