It is with great joy that I am also joining in on ths opportunity to blogtemplate something about this unique day. I have heard about the many couples who are seeking marriage on this day, and I know of one who is taking advantage of that, and if you know who you are, well, you're probably at the alter, or in a courtroom and NOT reading my blog today. Blessings to YOU today!!
In other news people are finding ways to enjoy the significance of the event that happens once every century for the number 12. I have heard radio stations commenting on both sides about the interest and also the commoness of the numerical phenomenon. However, being a part of it in your lifetime, I believe is something to enjoy noting, maybe sharing a story or two, and making debate about the numerical significance in some part of your day today. If you would like to share the debate you particiapted in, or have a comment about this 12th day of the 12th month of the 12th year of this century, please comment or like this blogtemplation today.
Other numerical events that are fun to share and reminisce about are people who are born on leap year and are only celebrating their 16th birthday at age 64, and of course how can you forget the other dates that have passed in this century already: 01.01.01, 2.2.02, 3.3.03, 4.4.04, 5.5.05, 6.6.06, 7.7.07, 8.8.08, 9.9.09, 10.10.10, and the mostly recently famous just over one year ago; November 11, 2011. The unfortunate part is that we don't have a 13th month, so in many ways this wraps up all the available dates when we will see the same number 3 times. So make good on all the positive vibes, juju, legends, fascination, hocuspocus, conjury, divination and other words that also mean superstition of the event!
I mentioned the also famous lyric from the Holiday Favorite; The Twelve Days of Christmas. I have made a focused effort this year to begin and hopefully end my Christmas shopping early. I did not get caught up in all the Black Friday affairs or mad rush of sales, however I feel like I have taken advantage of good sales in general, I hope you are doing as well in your finances. The down side is that I also find my funds disappear just as rapidly. On a note about finances, I hope you are giving to your local charities and giving donations in your time and your extra cash on hand. I'll speak on this not to brag, but to encourage all of you out there to give in some way this season. I took part in a Generosity task recently and recieved great joy in putting myself through the experience. It has also set into motion an awareness to continue to give and be mindful that giving is not just something we need to do during the holidays. I hope you find your time and talent in giving to some organization or some event or task you feel your community needs. I hope your benefits are humble, yet rewarding to your spirit. If you have any stories to share, I would encourage you to write about that as well and leave comments on this site.
Lastly on today's blogtemplation I hope to impart my greatest support to anyone starting anything new or important in their lives today. If you are simply continuing on important aspects and ventures in your life, this is also worth noting and something I support as well. Beginning something new requires many skills, patience, and energy to get going, however maintaining that forward effort requires different and important skills of persistence, perciverence, and strength of character and other areas as well. May today be the burst of energy you need at either phase of your life, or phase of the task ahead of you.
As always, please write back, like this page, and/or share your comments and stories with me and this site. I encourage community growth and writing all the time. Thank you for reading today.
