How are Americans Making Life Beautiful?

Making Life Beautiful Day in 2021 was first celebrated on June 11, 2015. But what exactly is it and how do we celebrate?

It is a day dedicated to encouraging and celebrating men and women who are making life beautiful. Whether you’re creating beauty through building relationships or helping others achieve personal success, one small action can lead to a ripple effect, making life beautiful not just for yourself, but for those around you, too

National Calendar Day

How Do People Celebrate Making Life Beautiful Day in 2021?

People can celebrate Making Life Beautiful Day a variety of big and small ways. The National Calendar Day lists a couple of ways:

  • Building relationships
  • Helping others achieve their goals
  • Being kind to others
  • Empowering people to be uniquely themselves

Here are some ways Givelify’s team is celebrating Making Life Beautiful Day in 2021:

Tell Someone You See Them.

Sawubona. This Zulu greeting literally means, “I see you.” It’s easy to give someone praise. Telling someone what you see that is uniquely theirs is truly meaningful. Letting someone know that you are present with them and you notice what they like, what inspires them, what makes them laugh is a beauty maker. The Zulu response? Ngikhona. It means “I am here.” Your seeing someone is what makes them able to be present and alive. How beautiful is that?

Leave a Larger Tip Than Usual

Tipping is something that can be overlooked at times, and yet it is vital to millions of restaurant workers in the United States. These employees are among the ones who have been hit the hardest by the pandemic and are more than worthy of our care and attention.

Create Something New

Choreograph a Dance. Paint. Write a poem. Perform a skit. Play an instrument. Cook. Any time you create using your imagination to serve others, make them laugh, inspire them to make their own creation, you bring beauty into the world. And we need more of that!
