What does February 2023 have in store for you?

If you take a moment to look around and view the February calendar of events there seems to be theme that resonates across the entire month--can you image what that would possible be?

Take a moment to digest the various days of the month and the resounding ideas that resonate:

  • Black History Month
  • Valentines Day
  • World Marriage Day
  • International Book Giving Day
  • Random Acts of Kindness Day
  • Presidents Day
  • National Love Your Pet Day
  • Carpe Diem Day

If there is only one moment, one day, or one month to consider, 'consider' taking February's anthem and allow it to activate your brain! Take a moment to appreciate the people around you, be present in the moment you are currently in, and be mindful of the amazing people around you. February is all about sharing, love, and group dynamics--take a moment to reflect and share what you have with others.
