Nelson Mandela International Day


Are you celebrating Nelson Mandela International Day today? If you’re like me, you did not even know this day – July 18 – was declared by the United Nations to be Nelson Mandela International Day back in 2009. I’m surprised I did not know this as I really loved Nelson Mandela and am always inspired by him. I even set a post on Saturday to publish today on my Narah Valenska Smith – Real You Living Facebook page as you can see below and I boosted that post to his page this morning too in order to reach others who love him as well.


This goes to show how we must be plugged in to what we care about, lest it pass us right by. By the grace of God, I was plugged in enough to bring this awareness to myself so that I would not miss it, just as you have brought this to yourself as well.

So, now that we are informed, let’s talk about what we can do to celebrate Nelson Mandela International Day.

How You Can Celebrate Nelson Mandela International Day

I am committed to making the world a better place for all so I will do today what the Mandela Day website says here to really plug in and FULLY celebrate Nelson Mandela International Day. One of the things it says is that there are many ways to make a difference and that you can

Start with what you are passionate about and where you know your actions will have a lasting impact.

For me that means that today I will be helping people be who they REALLY are – who they were created and born to be – in service of others. This is, of course, what I am MOST passionate about and where I know my actions will have a lasting impact in this world. If you know me, you know I do this every day so I will do even more of it today in honor of Mr. Mandela.

Like him, I truly believe we CAN make the world a better place and that it IS indeed in OUR hands. That is why I work with people to have them look at themselves and their lives so that they can create and live an authentic life that makes a difference. 

To that end, by the way, I have been working on a webinar I will be hosting this week based on my Rock Your Life Bootcamp and other personal development / life coaching work I do to help people create the life they really want for themselves being their true selves. I hope you will be sure to not let it pass you by as this day almost passed me by.

To be notified of it and the new being back up and running, please go here now.

Remember, we must pay attention to what we are committed to if we want to make this world a better place in the way only we each can. We have unique talents and gifts and must not sit on our hands just watching life pass us by and this world fall apart. Actions speak louder than words so I hope you’ll join me in making this world a better place just as Nelson Mandela did. Let’s celebrate Nelson Mandela International Day – and EVERY DAY – by being all we were meant to! Be The Real You Living!

All my love always,
