It's Just Because Day!

Nearly every day we all do things that are expected or required.  Today that does not apply.  Today do something different.  Today do something that you do not have to do, but just want to do.  That's what Just Because Day is all about.

Here are some suggestions:

Take an unplanned day of vacation to go fishing

Pay a visit to someone you haven't seen in a while

Buy something you really don't need

Pick up the tab for the table next to you at a favorite restaurant

Surprise someone with flowers

You get the picture.  Today you do these things, just because you can.

Enjoy your, Just Because Day, all day long.
