Everything You Do Is Right Day!

You know those days when nothing, and I mean absolutely NOTHING, seems to work out for you?  A time when you look up to the sky and exclaim “Why me???” The Curious Case of Benjamin Button depicts a good example of one of these moments, with exceptional film work, I might add…

Well today, dear readers, you won’t have to worry about your forgetful nature or accident-prone qualities. It’s Everything You Do Is Right Day!

Let’s take a look at a video of some of the luckiest people ever. I’m sure all of these events took place on this holiday because they had to be doing everything right to experience such crazy things and be able to walk away from them.

Now here’s a list of a few staple items in our society that were invented just by chance. Everything these people did was clearly right in order for them to invent such amazing things that we often times take for granted:

1. Chocolate Chip Cookiescookies
The owner of the Toll House Inn, was making chocolate cookies but ran out of baker’s chocolate, so she substituted it with broken pieces of semi-sweet chocolate because she thought it would melt. It clearly did not melt, thus creating chocolate chip cookies that are now so near and dear to many people’s hearts…and stomachs.

An 11 year old left a mixture of powdered soda and water on the porch, which contained a stir stick. That morning he woke up to discover this frozen treat.

3. Microwave
Percy Spencer walked past a radar tube one day and noticed that the chocolate bar in his pocket melted.

Since today is a day when you can do no wrong, then I say try to achieve something you’ve always wanted. Do that one thing that you never thought was possible. Go after that one person you never thought you could talk to. Apply for that job that you have always dreamed of. Do something outside of your comfort zone and reap the rewards of your courage! You have absolutely nothing to lose today.

Here’s one of my favorite quotes that might help to inspire you:
“You’ve gotta take some chances. Risk losing it all. Gotta close your eyes and leap because it might just be worth the fall.”

By the way, ignore the “risk losing it all” portion of the quote because that won’t happen to you today. Everything you do is right today, after all!

And now I ask you this…What has been your best day ever? Explain a day in your life when everything you seemed to do was right.

Best holiday wishes!
