Happy National Awkward Moments Day! Today is the day that everyone should be able to relate to because we've all had awkward moments. If you are alive, there's absolutely no way to avoid it. It's a real part of life...we just have to deal with the embarrassment of the awkward moment and move on. It literally makes for a great story to tell later though.

What Is Awkwardness

The definition of awkwardness is: "An emotional state of intense discomfort with oneself."

According to the National Calendar website:

Have you ever called someone by the wrong name, tripped over nothing, walked into a door, had the completely wrong words come out of your mouth or just forgot what you were doing?  The list could go on and on. Sometimes, things just do not seem to go right, and something happens that may make you feel like you want to run and hide. Whether on National Awkward Moments Day or any other day, everyone has them.

FYI: I'm still debating on whether or not I want to reveal my most awkward moment....lol...it's really bad.

The best way to observe this day is to: Find the ability to laugh at yourself, see the humor in awkward moments and have fun with them and use #AwkwardMomentsDay to post on social media.
