Backward Day - Is it Time to Rip Up the Rule Book?

Backward Day is a fun day that encourages us to do things in an order that we would not usually do them. For example, we just ate dessert for dinner. A wonderful reversal of fortune. An unexpected eruption of hot chocolate and ice cream from an innocuous offering on the menu labeled simply as a "Dinosaur Egg." The dessert was so rich and delicious, it left us not wanting for any nutritious greens or protein. A healthy lifestyle choice? Not by any standards - but certainly acceptable on a day whereby you do everything differently simply because of its name. 

Although we may not have worn our clothes inside out or wore our underwear as our outerwear, we did spend some time today to examine status quo and ask if it was time to scrap our planned approach and do things differently. Sometimes it helps to rip up the rule book and look at things from a different point of view. If there is one day that you’re going to give this a try, this is the day to do it!

There is no age limit when it comes to Backward Day, and we would encourage everyone to get involved. 

Don't miss a beat!
