This year you get an extra day. You get an extra day to be AWESOME. I know you’re awesome every day. Yes, I believe this is true even on the days you don’t feel like it. I’m here though to tell you how to spend your Leap Day. February 29th is kind of a big deal. How will you celebrate an extra day to be your best you?
Leap day happens every 4 years. This means that you technically have 4 years to plan for this special event. Who does that? Not me! I have thought about it though as the day comes closer. Truthfully I want to celebrate the specialness in every day, but we can easily get caught in the rut of routine. Leap day though is a chance to get out of that and savor a moment. There are 3 things that are on my list and here they are:
1. Eat something special
Today is the day to enjoy dessert. It’s the time to revel in something that you’ve wanted to have fora while but couldn’t or just haven’t until now. In my head I’m imagining a Molten Peanut Butter Mini Cake, but I know I won’t go that far off the rails of my diet. I might have an extra Girl Scout cookie though. It’s a treat, but I don’t have to blow all the hard work I’ve done to have it. It’ll still feel special.
2. Think of 4 things I’d like to accomplish before the next Leap Day
You can download this printable here. I’m still thinking about this, but I know I’ll be continuing to try to grow the community we’ve built here. I’ve already achieved so many goals this year with ya’ll. Should I create a webinar about time management as a parent, blogging and your child’s security, or how to deal when people ask the dreaded what do you do question?
3. Learn something new
It’s not easy to learn something new, but I want to do it. I taught myself how to crochet via YouTube, and I want to conquer knitting. I’m also working on learning more about making graphics. I want to spend some time on Leap Day sitting down with one of these topics in mind and start really trying to learn it.
This Leap Day let us all remember that we are AWESOME. What do you plan to do with your Leap Day?
