Well, the kids are all back to school, and I’m reminded of what a spirit of new beginnings fall brings. We’re all refreshed after the summer, and there’s a certain comfort in coming back together — getting back into a structure and routine. It might be a good time to evaluate: What structures would you like to put into your new ‘school year’? Maybe there are things that were comforting as a child, like having dinner together as a family. Maybe it’s a new chore chart. Maybe it’s sequestering time every day to connect with your beloved, no matter what. September, like January, can be a time of what-ifs, a time of how-can-we-make-life-better?
Take this time as a moment to stop and refresh, and be intentional about how you might want to update your lifestyle.
