So as it is currently 11:13 pm I'm realizing that I'm a bit late in telling you this. But HAPPY DON'T CRY OVER SPILLED MILK DAY! Also, God bless America for having all these fun little made up holidays. I only found out about it a few hours ago through Hellogiggles.com.
Although it is also national inventors day and peppermint patty day. But no one cares about that right now. Apparently no one knows why or when these holidays became national holidays (does anyone???). My favorite tale is that fairies who were quite fond of milk would drink up any spills left behind. Slightly creepy to think that if you go to grab a towel or napkin to clean up your mess little human/mosquito hybrids are all up in your kitchen. But I'm sure it was a sweet thing to tell the little ones. Kinda like Santa or the Tooth Fairy or something.
The day represents a moment to regroup after recent hardship and push forward with a positive attitude. The phrase points to the idea that getting upset over every little problem will lead to nothing beneficial.
Let the record show that positive thinkers:
- live longer
- have lower rates of depression
- sleep better
Take today (and everyday) as a friendly reminder that you shouldn't sweat the small stuff. Especially the things you cannot do anything about.
Also, s/o to the moms out there!
