NATIONAL AWKWARD MOMENTS DAY
On March 18th, we recognize National Awkward Moments Day. This is an annual day that every person can relate. We have all had our awkward moments from time to time. They are a part of life; they just happen.
Awkwardness or embarrassment is defined as an emotional state of intense discomfort with oneself.
Have you ever called someone by the wrong name, tripped over nothing, walked into a door, had the completely wrong words come out of your mouth or just forgot what you were doing? The list could go on and on. Sometimes, things just do not seem to go right and something happens that may make you feel like you want to run and hide. No matter the day, today or any other day, everyone has them.
HOW TO OBSERVE #AwkwardMomentsDay
Find the ability to laugh at yourself, see the humor in awkward moments and have fun with them. Relive old awkward moments by telling stories about them. Laugh over them and enjoy the memory. They may be embarrassing at first. However, as time goes by, the humor in these moments real just how human we can be. After all, don’t we all start out somewhere? We learn something new or misunderstand someone’s meaning. No one is perfect, ever. And it’s important to keep that in mind on this day and take a little humility with us as we celebrate it.
