So it’s no secret to people that know me that I try to keep it positive. I like to look on the bright side. Always real, but positive. But to be frank, I feel like I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. I’ve got a million and one things going on lately with barely enough time to remember to eat three meals a day. Who said the last semester of college was going to be easy because I would love to laugh in their faces….
I’m not sure where all my time is going because I seem to never have enough of it. The to-do list is continuing to pile up and although there are so many things I’ve already done, it seems like the list of things I haven’t is never-ending. (Brb let me just have a quick frustration cry in my bed while typing this because it’s so so real.)
Since I’ve been feeling so overwhelmed lately I’ve been clinging to any little scrap of positivity so leap day was a welcome distraction and a great start to what I know is going to be a stressful week! I walked around all day yesterday exclaiming how exciting leap day is and trying to click my heels together while jumping… FYI I would recommend you don’t try that while wearing your backpack that has your zillion-pound laptop inside.
For me, leap day was a chance to Make the most of my Monday, something I’m pretty passionate about and really need to do more often. It’s an extra day, a 366th day on the calendar, that only comes around every four years. In my eyes that’s something to celebrate! We won’t see another February 29th until 2020 so my friends and I decided to spend it wisely. After eating lunch outside in the beautiful weather, we went on a mini adventure to beautiful Rockport, MA to walk around the harbor. It was nice to do something a little out of the ordinary, especially something that I wouldn’t normally have time to do on a weekday.
I believe that every day brings with it a new chance, a new opportunity, a new beginning. Leap day is an extra space on the calendar that only comes every four years. I chose to embrace it with positivity even in the smallest of ways. How did you spend your leap day?
