Nine Things to do on 09-09-09

Today is 09-09-09. If for no other reason, the sequence of numbers make today special. So I thought I'd try and think of nine things to do today to make this day memorable. Here's what I came up with:
  1. Write down 9 goals to accomplish before 10-10-2010
  2. Smile 9 times - both strangers and family members.
  3. Pull out your all time favorite book and read 9 pages.
  4. Write a card or note to an elder relative with at least 9 cheery sentences.
  5. Exercise for 9 minutes - or, if you exercise daily already, add 9 minutes to your routine.
  6. Find 9 pieces of clutter in your home and throw them away.
  7. Windex 9 items until they sparkle.
  8. Go outside and enjoy the fresh air for 9 minutes.
  9. Write down 9 things you're grateful for.

The Number Nine: The spiritual meaning of number Nine represents attainment, satisfaction, accomplishment, and our success to achieve an influence in our circumstances. The spiritual meaning of number Nine deals with intellectual power, inventiveness, influence over situations and things. Nine beseeches us to recognize our own internal attributes, and extend these abilities out into the world to make a positive, influential difference.

Hmmmm....too bad I didn't see this until after NINE at night. Too late to do any of those things. Instead I will have to wait to do ten things on 10/10/10.
