Hey, Hey, Hey! It's National Left Hander's Day!!

#LeftHandersDay



I’m coming to you on this National Left Hander’s Day because...well hey...I am left-handed!! I was planning to make this a post, but realized that since us left-handers only make up around 10% of the world’s population, we deserved a short blog post.


Some of my favorite celebrities are lefties. Outside of the fact that my bestie of 30 years is one as well, we sit in company of Oprah Winfrey, Lady Gaga, Jimi Hendrix, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and my always favorite president, Barack Obama!


Since the majority of the world is right-handed, it’s been tough LOL! Can you imagine as a kid, loving to write as I do, having spiral imprints and smudges of ink down the side of my hand because the notebooks were made for right-handed people. Still as an adult, when it’s time to sign the check, I always have to “shift” the machine or the paper for my left-hand. But you know, you’ll hear no complaints here...there are some pretty cool things that we are known to be better at than right-handers:


  • Better drivers

  • Better at creating (art, music, etc.)

  • Making money (natural hustlers)

  • Better at math (this is questionable LOL!)

  • Better at sex (yep!!)

  • Better entrepreneurs (see Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs)

  • Better at some sports (Baseball, Tennis)


All that to say, in a world that was not really made for left-handers, we are awesome! If you are a left-hander, let’s celebrate our uniqueness and our superpower!!


Here’s to National Left Hander’s Day...put one in the air...with your left hand, of course!!!


FYI - I LOVE the Simpsons!! Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons is left-handed and made Ned Flanders a lefty, who built an entire business around us!!
