You may or may not know it, but today, March 9, is National Get Over It Day! Surprise! I had no idea either, until I happened to google randomly if March 9 is any sort of ‘national holiday’ (the things you do to keep busy when you’re “retired”). It is also National Meatball Day in case you were wondering. Enjoy!
I thought I’d draw attention to this special day for a few reasons:
a) To bring more awareness to a little known about ‘national holiday’: It’s silly, sarcastic, humorous, yet useful and important!
b) Sometimes, I need to really #GetOverIt. When I’m stuck in traffic, instead of getting stressed and edgy, I could roll down the window and wave at the neighbouring cars (I am still looking for friends here). If a movie is sold out, pick another one (I could see that random movie that’s always “option #2”- like all of the Oscar-nominated ones! #lookingatyouSpotlight).
c) As I explore Philly, I find I am running into more and more little things that frustrate me- things are run differently than I’d prefer at the place I volunteer; the grocery store doesn’t have the same organic section I’m used to; not all movie theatres have cheap night Tuesdays; and really, things just aren’t the same as they are back home in Canada. I need to breathe, let it out, and get over it. Turn that negativity into positivity. Seriously, what good is any sort of stress doing for me, or the world? I think trying to keep this mindset will be incredibly useful as I find my way here in Philly. Instead of pushing against these differences, I need to embrace them.
I’m taking an online social media class, and this week we had to make a 90 second video- check out what my group made to celebrate #NationalGetOverItDay!
Remember, it’s only spilt milk. #GetOverIt And remember, wine really can solve a lot of things.
