March First or Super Tuesday

While trying to decide what to write about, I went searching for something new and inspiring and uplifting that would make you walk away happy on this Super Tuesday. Here in Texas the television is full of political campaigns as people try to persuade us to vote for a candidate in thirty seconds or less. Frankly, I’m sick of the negativity and now mute my television or watch everything from my DVR. Enough.
So I went internet surfing looking to see what happens on March first that would make you smile.  There’s a website that I visit that tells me what happened on this day. Here is what I found about March first.
Did you know that Justin Bieber was born this day in 1994. Yes, the Bieber is celebrating his twenty-second birthday today. Let’s hope he parties responsibly. Happy birthday Bieber!
It’s National Pig day. So when you have that piece of bacon with breakfast, know that we’re celebrating pork today. Hmmm….it’s also Super Tuesday. Did they do that on purpose? Oink! Oink!
Peanut butter day — I love peanut butter cookies, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Yes, I’m a fan of peanut butter.  I think I’ll have some cookies today to celebrate.
db533830-5280-4744-b9c6-cb09dd9ef551Yellowstone National Park was established in 1872. While I really enjoyed our trip there and seeing Old Faithful and all the other thousands of geysers, the drive from Texas will never be done again. It’s a beautiful park and please visit to see the spectacular scenery, but fly there.
It’s also the Peace Corps day. When I was a child, I wanted to join the Peace Corps. Then I grew up and discovered boys. Boys looked more interesting.
But my favorite thing about today is that it’s SHARE A SMILE DAY. Regardless of what is going on around you, the gloom of the television, the barrage of political buffoonery, the negativity of the people around you. Smile. Be that light that makes others feel good about themselves. Share some joy with the people around you. Laugh and smile and make other people long to be with you.
Not only am I saying this to you, but also to remind myself. So many times I let life intrude and forget the joy to be had in living. It’s why I write romance.
So on this Super Tuesday share a smile and make everyone wonder what you’ve been up to and why you’re so happy. If they ask, say ‘oh, I won the Nigerian Lottery’.
And remember, it’s national pig, Justin Bieber birthday, celebrate peanut butter in the Yellowstone National Park with the Peace Corps and share a smile today.
Here’s smiling at you! Tell me something happy that makes you smile.
