BEST FRIENDS DAY

June 8 celebrates Best Friends Day, a day to honor that one special person you call your “best friend”.   It is a time to show them how much you appreciate them, how special and important they are to you and how you cherish their friendship.

“Best friends share extremely strong interpersonal ties with each other.”  (Wikipedia)

Everyone has that one close friend, the one that you can count on to be there for you, the one you want to share your secrets with, the one you want to do fun things with, the one you want to just hang out with, that one person is your best friend.

“When it hurts to look back and you’re scared to look ahead, you can look beside you and your best  friend will be there.”                (author unknown)

Celebrate National Best Friends Day by letting your best friend/friends know how much they mean to you!

NATIONAL NAME YOUR POISON DAY

National Name Your Poison Day is celebrated each year on June 8.  Over the years, bartenders have made the phrase, “name your poison” popular when asking patrons what they would like to drink.   Today commemorates that  phrase and is a day to celebrate making a choice or a decision.

It may be a simple, easy choice to make or it might be a difficult decision that you have to put a lot of thought into.

The origin of the term “name your poison” is unknown.  It is believed that, when it was first used, it referred to making a choice from some not so good options.  It is suggestive that which ever option was chosen would be just as bad as the other one, hence the word “poison” being used in the phrase.

  Good luck on your decisions today!!

NATIONAL UPSY DAISY DAY

Each year on June 8, it is National Upsy Daisy Day.  This day is a day set aside to encourage you to face the day positively, and to get up ‘gloriously, gratefully and gleefully’ each morning.

Everyday is a gift and if we remember that as we rise each morning, it will help us carry a good attitude throughout the day, whatever the day may bring us.  Life is full of challenges and bumps in the road, it is our attitude that helps us over the bumps and through the challenges to move onward with a smile.

Give it a try today.  Be grateful and thankful for what you do have such as a bed to sleep in, food to eat, friends and family and etc.  Try a smile, see how it feels.  It may surprise you that it feels good on the inside also and how other people will smile back.  You may just brighten up their day!   Upsy Daisy!
