February is here. Tata January. If you were going to start the New Year right, February is your 2nd chance.
I kinda like February. Shortest month, it deserves some respect. Also in the northern hemisphere, it is the last full month of winter. (March's first three weeks are still winter, but trying I am to be positive).
So here's to February. I am motivated to make the month of Ground Hogs, Valentines and Past Presidents a good one. If one plays their cards right, each day can be a sort of do-over in case one didn't get it right the first time. That's February. A time to follow through on the promises of a New Year that hasn't quite yet lost its innocence.
