Bonus Day!



Today is February 29th. It’s an extra day. A day to make the most of because we only get this day once every 4 years.

How will you spend it? Will it be just another day to you or will it be a day that you make the most of?ย 

I find myself thinking about February 29th, 2012. It was probably an uneventful day for me. I was likely at work or spending time with friends and not looking very far into the future. I don’t think I treated February 29th as a bonus day and I certainly wasn’t imagining that by February 29th, 2016 I would be a mother. Life was different back then. It was good, but it’s so much better now ๐Ÿ™‚

So here I am four years later, happier than I even thought possible! I am treating today so much differently. It is a day to savour.I am going to try my best to make the most out of today. I’m going to spend some extraย time with my daughter and I am also going to spend time on ME!

I plan on writing as much as I can today. I have words in my head that I am trying so hard to get on paper, but sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way. They say that when you can’t get the words out, just write. So tonight, I will write. And whatever comes out is okay because it’s better than nothing at all. Sometimes I have a love/hate relationship with writing. So this evening, I am going to give it my all and make sure that I find the love in my words โค

I’m also trying my best to be kind to myself today. Today is special because it’s an extra day to give myself some self-love. I plan on treating myself to a bottle of wine, giving myself a few compliments and maybe even taking a few moments to watch the sunset.

Today is your bonus day. We only get the opportunity to experience February 29th onceย every four years. We have no idea where we will be in four years or where life will take us. So whatever you do, just remember to make today count โค

  1. I was thinking about what I did on this bonus day too after reading your post… I went for a blogging event and took many photos…even though it is tiring, I am definitely enjoying every little opportunity that come my way…

  3. I really like this! So true. I didn’t do much at all. If only I’d read this sooner. Hm, maybe since I treated it as completely average, I can treat tomorrow, March 4th as my bonus day and make it a good one! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I think anyone who writes has a love/hate relationship with writing. That’s definitely true for me!

    I found your site through the blog boost fb group btw, and glad I did. I put you on my follow list. I love motherhood posts, and need to write more of them myself! Have a great day!
