Happy Groundhog Day
It's the least known "Holiday" of the year, yet that silly Groundhog goes about his job every Feb.2 no matter what. Sounds like a characteristic of you and me, having to do the same thing everyday whether we like it or not, eh? lol
I always loved Bill Murray in this Movie, "Groundhog Day." He's done many great movies, but this is by far my favourite Bill Murray movie. Here demonstrates a miserable, loath able self-centred man, and everyday he gets the chance to better himself and make it a great day. No matter how many times he fails, he wakes up the next day just the same way he did the morning before. There isn't any yelling, chastising, or nagging about what he did wrong; he just has to do it again until he gets it right.
Of course, he has some fun with it in the beginning to make us laugh, until he gets the idea of what he needs to do. And I think that is the same metaphor that we could use in our everyday lives, isn't it?
So enjoy your Groundhog Day. It's another 6 weeks of winter, but hey, we live in Canada so we can enjoy it!!
