February: A time of Renewal
Because schools resume in September, we think of September through December as the last third of the year. School, football, Thanksgiving, and Christmas — each month has its own focus. But if we slice the calendar a little differently, we can think of November through February as a block as well: November and December are the holidays, January is “New Year’s,” and February is Recovery! February is an opportunity to recover from the busyness of the holidays and Renew our focus on the year ahead.
If you are in recovery mode this month from the holiday and New Year’s season, gradually shift your focus from recovery to renewal. “Be renewed in the spirit of your mind” as you prepare for the year ahead.
