We have so many special days to celebrate – Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, International Women’s Day. In a different part of the world, we celebrate days to commemorate wars, peace treaties and special events.
The question is, are we celebrating the special days for a real change, publicity or ticking a box?
These special days have a history for us to acknowledge. There is often a purpose and sense of belonging for a cause. But do we support their core purpose and cause? Or merely using this as another opportunity to post on social media? Or tick a box by a short staff update in a newsletter?
It may be a time for some self-reflection. We all can do much more than conform to the norm. If we really care for a cause, then let’s tell the world about the change we have brought for its support!
