February 29th is a bonus day. It is a day that doesn’t really count, like that extra hour that comes with dayllight saving. I make a point of being a little more daring, stepping outside my comfort zone, simply acting like the day doesn’t really count. I am free from attachment. Funny thing is, when I do this, I tend to have a remarkable day.
I can remember the last February 29th in great detail. It was the day I met my husband. Bonus day! Turned into bonus years!
When the day rocks up, I am conscious to let go of my fears, to be a little braver and take the leap. Then I seem to remember to do this for quite some time. I have noticed in the last couple of months an air of complacency, where I’ve felt more than respect for the limb, I’ve actually been a little frightened to go out there.
So today, I’m grateful for the reminder that wonderful things happen when we live without fear. That I feel more joy when I live without attachment.
It is only me that stops me living like this each and every day. Today, I’m going to make the most of my bonus day by allowing myself to live like this each and every day.
Step lightly – make the most of your bonus days!
