Feel like your life sometimes spirals into a chaotic mess? Then Chaos Never Dies Day on November 9 is the holiday for you.
This made-up holiday encourages people to realize that chaos is part of life and that it will never die. So instead of getting hassled by it, just take a deep breath and let go of things that create chaos in your life on this day.
How fitting that this made up holiday is settled in November, just before the chaos of holiday, planning, eating, parties, shopping, and gifting begin in earnest. So much so that many started gift shopping for the next year on December 26th. For those who didn’t start that early or at all I can promise it is easier and a lot less chaotic when not scrunched into a limited two month time period.
If you are someone who thrives on chaos, you will find yourself firmly in your element as holiday events ensue. While I can quite happily join the holiday hustle, starting early gives me more time for personal gifting and enduring memory making.
Chaos Never Dies Day is also known as National Chaos Never Dies Day in the United States.
How to Celebrate?
- Take the day for yourself and do things that de-stress you. Pack your lunch and go for a picnic in the park with your loved ones.
- Watch a feel good movie or read a book.
- Take a nap in the middle of the day and remember chaos never dies, so it can wait to hassle you for one more day.

Do you have a passion for something? Maybe it’s being a mom, crafting, books, gardening, etc. A great way to express your passions is through your own blog. This gives you the chance to tell others about what you love. It’s one of the biggest and growing trends on the internet.
Did you know some people get paid to write as a freelance writer or promote products that you use? Does this sounds like you? If so you’ll want to not only write great content, but share it with your friends. Once upon a time this was hard to do. With the development of social media it’s easier than ever. As a blogger for the past 2 years I’ve learned a few tricks along the way.
There are a lot of choices out there, so I thought maybe I’d share mine to help you decide which way to turn. Starting with where do I start. I looked around and found a lot of choices. In the end I chose Word Press. I like the features, themes, and upgrade ability, without having to start over. They’re mobile app gives me the freedom to add when ever and where ever I am.

Ok, so if you’ve searched on places like Google or Pintrest, you’ve seen thousands of entries about blogging. Most tell you how easy it is and give suggestions like I am, “What is the difference you ask? I am only recommending what I actually use. I’ve studied and tried quite a few to find what works the best for me.
Okay so you’ve made the hard choices and even written the posts. Now what? The best way to get viewers is to tell your friends. Start sharing the news on your social media pages. I use a little help with this. I use Postify. It saves me tons of time and work. Again I can do it from my phone if needed. Best of all I can schedule it to share across social media while I’m still in bed. Get Postify here.
With these tools you can easily tell the world just like you do with your best friend. Do I have all the answers? Nope, but I have enough that several business’s have contacted me asking for me to do it for them. If you decide this might be for you welcome to the club. If not then express your passions as you choose. Wether you keep it to yourself or share it with the world, find the spark that lies within you.
September 13, 2019, in spite of being Friday the 13th is Positive Thinking Day.
Is life getting you down? If your answer is a yes, then Positive Thinking Day (PTD) on September 13 is just the holiday you need to celebrate. Choose to be positive even with all those Friday the 13th superstitions going around. My black cat, for instance brings nothing but love and cuddles.
PTD is a day to set aside all negative thoughts and see that the glass is always half full.
The stresses and struggles of daily life can sometimes fill our heads with pessimistic thoughts. This unofficial holiday promotes the idea that negative thoughts do more harm than good – they drain energy, create more stress and can make one a less likeable person. Nobody wants to spend time with someone who is always negative and pessimistic.
The holiday, also known as International Positive Thinking Day encourages people to deal with difficult situations in life with optimism and positivity.
Positive thinking can have many benefits. Studies have shown that positive thinking can reduce stress and the risk of heart diseases, lower depression and increase life span. Some studies have even shown that positive thinking can increase the body’s resistance to the common cold.
How to Celebrate?
- Think positive! If you are having trouble believe that the glass is half full, then have a friend or a loved one reaffirm you.
- Take or sit in a positive thinking seminar. Sometimes hearing about the benefits of positive thinking from an uninvested party can help.
- Make a conscious decision not to put yourself down every time you do something wrong.
- Laugh as much as you can. Laughter can reduce stress and decrease the urge to think negatively. Go out for a comedy show or movie, do a marathon of your favorite comedy TV show or read a comic novel. You will see a marked difference in how you feel after a few laughs. After all, someone wise did once say laughter is the best medicine!
- Still feeling a bit low? Turn that pity party into an awesome dance party. Studies have shown that physical exercise can help alleviate mood and promotes positive thinking.
- Do something nice for yourself, a loved one or a stranger – doing good deeds can help increase levels of optimism.
Did You Know…
…that the term Debbie Downer is the name of a fictional character on the popular American late-night live television sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live? The always negative character, played by Rachel Dratch made its first appearance in 2004. These days the term is used to call anyone who is always complaining and negative.

This was so good! I got the original recipe from a Pintrest pin. We made it for our Anniversary celebration. As there are currently 8 people here after Hurricane Michael, I needed something for the adults that wouldn’t break the bank at the adult beverage store. (We gave the kids the virgin version and they loved it too.)
1 can frozen limeade mix
1can frozen Margarita mix
4 cups club soda
1 pt lime Sherbert (we only found it at our local Publix.)
750 ml white rum (we like Bacardi)
Mint leaves both for punch and garnish
4 limes thinly sliced (we use 2 in punch, 2 for garnish.)
- Muddle 1 handful of mint leaves with 1 cup club soda to release thier flavors.
- In gallon pitcher or punch bowl, combine lime sherbert, frozen Margarita mix, and frozen Limeade mix.
- Add mint leaves, and lime slices.
- Add remaining 3 cups club soda
- Mix well. (This virgin version was loved by kids attending).
We had a great time making it. It paired really well with the Irish Skillet we made. Now I have a great idea to use for St Patrick’s Day. Happy cooking and make so.e memories with your family.
The dog days of summer must be here. It’s so hot here we try to stay indoors as much as possible. We live in northwest Florida and it’s been hitting temps here of 110 degrees. So here are some cool, refreshing meal ideas.
- Refreshing Summer Drinks
- Turkey Bacon wraps
- Homemade Hoagie Sandwhiches
- Chipotle Turkey Panini
- Moms Pizza
- Deviled Eggs
With the 4th of July over I just have to mention something. It was missed at the event in DC. The Blue Angel’s are from right here in Pensacola, Florida. We take great pride in our World famous Blue Angels. Their home base is NAS Pensacola.
