Do Over Day February 26



February 26 is DO OVER DAY! What would you 'Do Over' if you had the chance to make things right from your past?

I have so many regrets from the past it's hard to choose just one, but since this is now an official Calendar Occasion, with greeting cards, T-shirts and more, I will start at the start to make amends. I should be able to make amends for everything I regret in the 40 or so years I have left on earth!

Here is my first remembrance of an offense I committed which hurt another.

When I was 12, I encouraged my friend to steal her Moms red lipstick on Halloween evening and we went out to the carport and I wrote all over her Moms car windshield, using up ALL the lipstick and making a terrible mess of the car.

I never admitted to that mean prank and my friend had to clean the lipstick off the windshield. I've been sorry about that for 45 years now and can't even apologize to her Mom because she died years ago. I hope this gets me off the hook! I know I feel better for having admitted I made a mistake.

What do you want to make amends for in your past? Do you regret a lost opportunity, a scene you made at your best friends wedding, a choice to get a tattoo or do drugs? Not being there for a friend when he/she needed your help?

Where would your life have gone if you could 'Do Over' just one event?


Mark Do Over Day on your calendar right now, then make your plans to make amends for something which you regret. Be sure to spread the word about Do Over Day with your friends via Facebook - this awesome day could make a huge difference in their lives!

Have you designed the Tshirt? Not bad. I mean that is nice.

im personally not too big on the t-shirt itself. I love the do over day website though, and the day in general seems to be a great idea.

I'm going to try and get my dog back tomorrow...no joke. I gave him away last month, and miss him dearly.

My father told me that "Do Over Day is a chance to redeem all the wrongs you've done, while celebrating the things you've gotten right in life." I always remember this day on thought like to wish 'I could take back the times I’ve lost patience and yelled.'
