It’s February 29th – An Extra Work Day – or A Day to Play?

Leap-year-daySo today is February 29.

2016 is a leap year and has 366 days instead of the typical 365. Apparently, if we don’t add an extra day to the calendar every now and then our seasons would morph into each other and lives would change dramatically.

I’ve always thought of February 29 as something fun and unique – not that I’ve treated it any differently than any other day, but, since it doesn’t come around every year, it’s an anomaly.

If you were born on Feb 29, you finally get to celebrate another birthday on your actual birthday! People born around Christmas think they have it tough, huh? Imagine having to pick a day each year to celebrate your birthday because it only comes around every 4 or so years?

In the grand scheme of life, today is an extra day, an extra 24 hours to do as you please. Will you use it toward achieving goals, or will you be taking it as a ‘freebie’ day and doing something entirely unique?

I’ll be working as it’s ‘just another Monday’ for me, and another day to work toward my 2016 goals! Wishing you a great week with a lot of writing success.
