No frills in tonight’s blog post, just the 10 things (in no particular order) that I like about the month of April.
It is in the middle of two months I really enjoy – Sorry April, I would take March or May over you.
Many years, Easter is in April – Not my favorite month, but many times my favorite holiday takes place during it.
Half Birthday – I make it halfway around the sun on April 8! Even though I have never celebrated a half birthday in my life, perhaps I change that this year?
A tradition unlike any other – There is no better sporting event in April than The Master’s.
Sloan was cured – When this month rolls around, I think about the courage of Sloan and the talented doctor who performed a life-saving surgery on her.
The weather is really nice! – I wouldn’t have included this five years ago because April is just another month of winter in Montana.
April O’Neil – As a major Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan as a boy, I correlated the month with the pretty news reporter.
Start of the 2nd quarter – Once March is done, the honeymoon of the new year is over. April is the start of the next 25% of the year (April-May-June). Will you build on what you did the first three months or reevaluate? #GreatBenchmark
Things looking bright – Each day during April, the days get longer and longer. The extended daylight becomes very noticeable and my mood improves.
Looooooow key – For me, April is chill. No annual appointments, no family birthdays, no big events. Although I like activity, it is nice to have one month without a lot on the calendar.
I admit it, I overlook April. However, sometimes you need to take a step back and give it a little bit of credit. I hope to make the most out of the remaining 27 days. Don’t Blink.
