Leap Year? I’m not exactly jumping for joy right now…
It’s February 29, and like many people, I feel the blues sneaking up at me. The sky is grey, and it feels like winter might never end. This year, February came at me so hard that it gave me a whole extra day at the end of a week with a head cold so that I could really appreciate how utterly uninspired I could feel.
Okay, that is QUITE enough of that.
Let’s take care of the basics. Get up. Wash up. Take a multivitamin. Get some exercise, even if it is a short walk around the block. Turn on some music. Shake your head free of this cobwebby space, and let’s go looking for something positive to do.
The Pale Blue Dot Foundation isn’t just about the grand gestures. Yes, it feels wonderful to make the major grant to a cause you support, but there are many small ways you can take action to make the your life, and the world around you, a little bit better, a little bit brighter.
