Leap Day!

Every four years, we get a whole extra day! I always try to use Leap Day for reflection – to figure out who I am and ignite some personal growth. And as today’s haiku horizons prompt is “Leap”, I wrote a haiku!

Extra day – BONUS!
Time to reflect on yourself
Leap into new you!

What are you doing with your bonus day?

  1. Never even thought of it as a bonus day! I wasted it 🙁

  2. What an amazing way to think of a Leap Day!! An extra day, a bonus. I hadn’t seen it like that, just a day. I like your way.

    I spent it helping clear out an elderly aunt’s house. She’s now in a sheltered house and left a lot of mess behind. I think that was probably making good use of it…

      It’s funny how much stuff we accumulate. Going through my Gran’s house when she went into a home made me have a serious look at my own.

  3. I don’t think I did much leaping – but I did a fair amount of relaxing and that comes pretty high on my list 🙂

  4. Love this and love leap day!! 🙂 Happiest day of the four years.

  5. Awesome post! Having some reflection is always great. 🙂

  6. How nice! I never looked at it as a special day. Thought yesterday I treat myself with a gentle reflexology massage. A good start for a new month.

  7. Very interesting!!! Well, today I was scared into thinking baby H was coming a month early, then had an ultra sound to show me he’s all good;) I won’t forget today, I definitely reflected a lot!

  8. We bought a car with our bonus day. Crazy, right? The salesman was like.. “Oh weird! You bought a car on Leap Year! You’ll always remember the date.”

  9. Bonus day wasted
    Monday anyway, but ill
    Health is not a plus

      1. Be back tomorrow;
        Interview. Dentist. Tiresome
        But necessary.

          1. Luck thankfully helped
            Or t’was just a day when threads
            Wove together well

            (SUCCESS on both counts)
