Celebrate Every Day

“Celebrate Every Day” by Linda Martin Andersen
Each month at “A Writer’s Playground,” I post information about monthly calendar days to observe.
This post is a reminder to celebrate every day of the month! Not with a party and cake, but by living life to the fullest!
Yesterday, I read an article in “The Fayetteville Observer” by Alicia Rancilio of the Associated Press about customizing your own decorative planning tools. This reminded me of scrapbooking days.
Just like coloring books are now something for all ages, so are decorative planning creations. One 14-year-old interviewed in the article, creates a planner page to help her “conquer the week.” That sounds more than decorative. That sounds empowering.
Erin Condren, a customized planner business owner, suggests combining planning with “truly celebrating every day.” http://www.erincondren.com/
And for those who say they don’t have a creative bone in their bodies… the best line of the article: “The great thing is, there are no rules.”

Look for other lovely tools that encourage creativity. At our local farmer’s market, I purchased a hand-made sketch book for my niece that was covered in a fabric that looked like batik. What is batik? Learn more here: http://www.batikguild.org.uk/whatisbatik.asp
Suggested Writing Prompts:
- What is a red letter day? When did you have one? Describe it.
- Have you had a sick day lately? What did friends and family do to cheer you up and help you to feel better?
- List the steps for creating a decorated planner page others can try.
