If you were on a cruise ship and it was announced you were about to cross the equator, would you take notice? I would. I mean, it’s nothing magical, but it’s significant, right? Certainly not something you experience all the time. That’s how I feel about today, which happens to be the middle day of the year. As far as the Year of Our Lord 2013, the front nine now lays behind us, the back nine ahead. So how you doin’? Are you a goal person like me? What’s the score sheet look like? What about relationships? We probably all take stock of those toward the end of year, to one degree or another. But why wait? Anything needing fixing? Need to do any regret-proofing?
Maybe in the future this day will become an actual holiday and with that will come a catchy, memorable name (I trust someone in the Hallmark R+D department is already working on this). Until then, I wish you a Happy Middle Day of the Year.
