Round Pole, Square Peg

In 1926, AA Milne wrote in a converse betwixt Owl and Pooh:

” ‘Well,’ said Owl, ‘the customary procedure in such cases is as follows.’

‘What does Crustimoney Proseedcake mean?’ said Pooh. ‘For I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words Bother me.’

‘It means the Thing to Do.’

‘As long as it means that, I don’t mind,’ said Pooh humbly.’“

I get it, sometimes you want to be a part of the crowd, but you never quite seem to get there. Me too! Everyone feels that way at some point or the other in their lives. But why don’t we take a day and embrace those parts of us that are different? They are the things that make us uniquely ourselves and no one can emulate our special parts and habits as well as we do. I love all those miscues, pointy bits and softer things about you. You are so uniquely beautiful. Right around this time of year I typically throw a purposeful holiday I like to call Crustimoney Proceedcake day! Last year we celebrated it on February 13, you can see the details here . But this year, I think it needs to start a little early because we’ve had a bit of strife among our citizens early in this new year.

Don’t worry, the cost is virtually free other than a moment’s time. All you have to do is create a Notecard and on it type “I want you to know I think you are” and include three positive words on it, sign it and give it to as many friends (at least 10) that you can. Heck, I reckon if you don’t want to write three individual words about each friend and want to keep it really simple, use my now old mantra ( totally swiped from “The Help”) You are nice. You are smart. You are important. and share it with your friends. Why should we do this? Because with one simple effort we can brighten someones day, and you never know, their life might need brightening right exactly at the moment. But the important thing is, the “gift” creates a soft ripple of kindess. A ripple that could take root and grow, and spread, possibly reaching a person you don’t even know, and meeting some need they have right at that moment. Because that’s the thing about kindness, sometimes giving kindness, even if just a smile, or a word, triggers the response in others to follow suit.

You know what? Like Pooh,  I don’t mind either. So even if I am a revolution of one, I’m going to do it. Happy Crustimoney Proseedcake Day!

    1. You are genius, you are creative, so, so nice and you have mad skills. Funny but true fact, I was going to send you a NC inworld Winter, and then I thought you’d think me some really weird stalker.
