According to the National Today organization, there are several reasons to celebrate, honor and commemorate each day of the year. Some are pretty obscure, like National Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day. Others are not very well known yet but definitely deserve to be in the limelight, like National Brave Day.
National Brave Day was registered in 2017 and takes place on the 4th Friday of September every year. According to Nationaltoday.com, the purpose of this holiday is to honor and celebrate the brave women in your life as well as to offer support and uplift those around you.
“Every woman knows that sometimes all that she needs is just a small nudge of encouragement in the form of timely guidance from another woman. Yet other times call for coordinated, thoughtful efforts for women in need. The world moves forward when women empower women. National BRAVE Day honors women who lift each other up, rescue each other, fight for each other’s cause and make each other BRAVE.” ~ NationalToday.com
This can mean a lot of things to different women but that’s the point. We should take time out to look around at the women around us and empower each other in whatever ways we can, especially on National Brave Day. So mark your calendar for September 23, 2022, reach out to some friends and make it count!
