Today is NATIONAL REPEAT DAY!!! NATIONAL REPEAT DAY!!! I searched for a source and origin for this day, but the best explanation I got was that it was obviously created by someone who did something and decided they would like to do it again. Hey – some of these wacky holidays are not to be understood – just to be enjoyed. This is one of them!

I often repeat repeat myself,
I often repeat repeat.
I don’t don’t know why know why,
I simply know that I I I
am am inclined to say to say
a lot a lot this way this way-
I often repeat repeat myself,
I often repeat repeat.

I often repeat repeat myself,
I often repeat repeat.
My mom my mom gets mad gets mad,
it irritates my dad my dad,
it drives them up a tree a tree,
that’s what they tell they tell me me-
I often repeat repeat myself,
I often repeat repeat.

I often repeat repeat myself,
I often repeat repeat.
It gets me in a jam a jam,
but that’s the way I am I am,
in fact I think it’s neat it’s neat
to to to to repeat repeat-
I often repeat repeat myself,
I often repeat repeat.”

Some suggestions for celebrating include eating your favorite meal – twice. As tempting as that is, I’m sure that would play havoc with my blood sugar – so I think I’ll pass. Another person suggested saying something you like more than once. Well, at least that would not mess me up physically – unless someone decided to slap me for being annoying – !

They pointed out that whatever you choose to repeat, it should be something you enjoy. The whole idea is to promote good feelings, so unless you just love to exercise, don’t do two workouts. That would defeat the purpose.

People who are fighting chronic disease, chronic pain and/or grief often just need to have a “silly day”. A day to give yourself permission to be happy – or as happy as possible given the circumstances. So, I give you permission to give yourself permission – to be HAPPY!!! It’s okay to smile even if you don’t feel like it. You have to do that to survive.

An expert is a man who tells you a simple thing in a confused way in such a fashion as to make you think the confusion is your own fault.  – William Castle

Enjoy this wacky holiday with no practical purpose attached to it! If it makes you smile, it’s done its job! Hugs!!!
