Evaluate Your Life Day is observed annually on the 19th of October and encourages people everywhere to take a good hard look at their lives to access whether or not they are happy with the road they’re traveling.
Most people start their lives with a lot of hope and optimism, and it seems to them that they can’t help but succeed. Unfortunately, life often takes exception to those plans and it can become all too easy for the average person to go off track and head in a direction they never intended on going.
Just because they haven’t reached their goals doesn’t mean that they’re a failure, however. Sometimes we all just need to access where we are, realign our priorities and make adjustments as necessary.
The History Of Evaluate Your Life Day
This holiday was created by Thomas and Ruth Joy. If you’ve read through any significant number of holidays, then you probably know that those names as the founders of Wellcat.
On their website, they have created a ton of different and often quirky holidays that people can enjoy. Some of the holidays they’ve created include “Pick a Pathologist Pal Day”, “Who Shall I Be Day?”, and Don’t Step on a Bee Day. And, of course, they invented Evaluate Your Life Day.

Revisit Original Goals
As we live our lives, our priorities and goals will often change. That’s okay and isn’t a sign of failure. It just means that some things need to be reevaluated. This is first done by throwing out goals that no longer fit your worldview, and then deciding on goals that do.
Adjust Your Timeline
Some of your goals are going to remain the same, but it has become obvious that you’re not going to reach them on their original schedule. That’s okay. Just readjust the schedule to fit your new circumstances and carry on.
Keep Track Of Progress
It’s also a good idea to keep track of progress. Scratching even small goals off your list can be quite satisfying.
