There are goodbyes and hellos today as we welcome in September. Although the heat that alluded us through most of August has returned, the feeling of fall is definitely in the air. The slightest breeze often sends down a shower of walnut leaves... they're always the first to let go.
My children and I are adjusting to my mother's absence and gearing up for the rhythm of school and new activities. September always feels like a fresh start and a new year... often more than January. I thought I might make up a list of fall goals for myself... maybe you might want to also.
Here are some general ideas that might get us going... just personalize them to fit your life:
- I will tackle an outside job that I've been ignoring.
- I will finish that project that has been begging for attention.
- I will learn that new skill that I've been curious about.
- I will resume the bit of self-care that got neglected during the summer months.
The list need not be long... just enough to get motivated and acknowledge the opportunity of September. Wishing you many happy beginnings!
