Take a minute to think about all the people you know who are going through a rough time at work, have a stressful personal life or who are just going through something rough. You probably know many people who fit at least one of these categories.
Life can be stressful, but it is always nice to know that we have someone who supports us and wants to see us succeed. Tomorrow, Sept.12, be that person for your friends because it is National Day of Encouragement.
National Day of Encouragement first started in 2007 when a student organization at Harding University, a college in Arkansas, created this day to generate a culture of encouragement in the community. The idea became a sensation and was then added to the National Day calendar to be celebrated by millions all over the United States.
While there is a designated day to encourage your peers and be a source of positivity for them, the idea behind this initiative was to bring awareness to the concept of encouragement and inspire people to include it in their daily lives.
Come by the Bagel Bakery today and pick up some treats to go along with your words of encouragement.
