Most Important Day of the Year

If you look at my cell phone, the home screen says the same thing everyday: Groundhog Day. Why? Am I a big fan of Puxsutawney Phil? Not really. How about Sun Prairie's Jimmy the Groundhog? Not so much. However, I'm a big fan of the movie Groundhog Day because I feel like it has a very important message about how to life your life. No joke. Did you ever see the movie? In a nutshell, Bill Murray plays big city weatherman who has to travel to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania each year to cover the big Groundhog Day ceremony. In this particular year, he gets trapped in the same day. He wakes up every morning to the same exact song on the clock radio and the same two disc jockeys saying the same thing over and over. He's literally trapped in the same day. He has to keep covering the same story and eating the same breakfast and seeing the exact same people at the exact same time and they say the exact same things to him. It's quite humorous, but also very deep. If you really think about it, we're all trapped in Groundhog Day. It's so easy to get in the rut of doing the exact same thing over and over. You wake up and get ready for work and see the same people and basically do the same thing over and over. It's not exactly the same day, but if you step back and look it can be similar to Bill Murray's situation in the movie. groundhogHere's the best part: the way Bill Murray's character ends up coping with the fact that he has to do the same thing over and over is by improving the day in little ways. Instead of just getting up and going to breakfast each morning, he starts talking with the people at the other tables at the bed and breakfast. Instead of just taking a nap before covering the Groundhog Day ceremony in the center of town, he takes a piano lesson. He starts to learn about the other people in the town.  He actually takes interest in what they do and what they have to say.  Even though he's trapped in the same day he ends up learning a lot and becoming a better person. He even gets the girl because he learns how to improve himself and listen to others.  In the end, he's no longer trapped in Groundhog Day because he's learned how to make the same thing very different each and every day. So remember Groundhog Day isn't just February 2nd.  It's really every day, but that's actually a good thing.
