Get Over It Day

March 9 is National Get Over It Day

An ex, a rejection, something that makes you sad, an embarrassment...anything you are struggling to get over.
Do it tomorrow!

Get Over It Day is a new holiday taking place on March 9th (exactly midway between Valentine's Day and April Fool's Day) because, at one time or another, EVERYONE has SOMETHING to get over! (regardless of what - or whom - "it" may be for you).

Regardless of age, of race, or of gender,
If you're tall or short, if you're plump or slender.
If you're hot or you're not, if you're straight, gay, or bi-,
This holiday is for YOU, and we'll now tell you why...

NOBODY is happy, EVERY day of their life.
Not an American Idol, not a Desperate Housewife.
Not MVP athletes, not Oscar-winning stars.
Not rich CEOs, not hot chicks at bars.

We ALL have our issues; ALL lives contain stress.
At some point, we're ALL, an emotional mess.
Ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, ex-husbands, ex-wives.
There are people to get over in EVERYONE'S lives...

But as much as things suck, as bad as they get.
If you got cheated on, if you're swimming in debt.
If you're aging or balding or get a cold sore,
Don't ever forget, that it could ALWAYS suck more!
It's all part of life; it will help you grow stronger.
But this "pity party" of yours can't last any longer.
You can sit home alone, being sad and depressed,
Or you can choose to be strong, and do as we suggest...
March 9th is the day, to finally say:
"Move on! It's done! It's Get Over It Day!"

Holy crap, I've got stuff like that. I've got an ex trying to suck money out of my wallet like she was born at the Dyson factory... I've got a wife that cheated on me a few years ago and I'm still hurting from that. I've got a 14-year-old who insists on acting her age. OK, count me in!

You're green now! I like it!

Okay, I'm gonna get over something today... My boyfriend asking me to marry him and then changing his mind. Yep, today is the day I'm gonna get over it! *cringe*

I got over a lot last year. That's one reason I'm pulling up anchor and getting the heck out of Dodge. ;)

(What did I get rid of? I gotta think this over. Everything's going pretty good for me....)

Great holiday post. I had no idea there was such a day. I will have to celebrate late today on the 10th. If March 9 is Get Over It Day, maybe March 8 could be Go Over It Today so I could bitch about it for 24 hours straight before having to give it up. :-D

I came across your comment on frankengirls blog, about witches and bitches, and thought u might find my last insert of interest. It very much has to do with finding the core meaning of language. In this case we are discovering the essential meaning of matriarch; matrix, kinship and origin. The post is named 'revelations of the motherland'...I believe u will find it as ironically funny as I retrospect of current terminology and patriarchal powertripping.

wow cool. I'm so sorry that I missed "Get over it" day...I myself need to "get over" a few things and I know that I can certainly think of a few other people who need to "Get over" stuff.

I'll have to mark this on my calendar for next year. ;)

Yep, get over it. Good advice, although not always as easy as it sounds. But I have "gotten over" some things from the past just recently, and it is very freeing! Brings some peace, doesn't it?
