I am in Control Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always March 30
On March 30, 1981, President Ronald Reagan was wounded in an assassination attempt. Lots of confusion prevailed. In the White House, then Secretary of State Alexander Haig was taken a little out of context when he said "I am in control here". Instead of focusing upon the entire statement, people and the press focused upon these few words. Political uproar eventually led to his resignation.
On that infamous day, I am in Control Day was born.
History sometimes fades with time. Alexander Haig's statement was all but forgotten. Meanwhile, this special day continues on, and evolves. In the case of I am in Control Day, this is not a bad thing. People came to think about this day in a different, more context. They personalized it into a day to get their life in control. In that sense, today is definitely a call to action. I am in Control Day is your chance to get things in order and under control.
Most likely, the first step is to take a deep breath and relax. Now, assess the situation, and.......... get things under control. Once you have accomplished this today, you can work on staying in control everyday.
Important Note: This day is closely related to Panic Day (March 9th) Perhaps you went through Panic Day before getting things under control, and you are now celebrating!?
Also, don't forget the real roots of I Am in Control Day, as spoken by Secretary of State Alexander Haig in 1981.
