I may have mentioned a few times how much I love the fall. Love. It. I love the smell of fireplaces and crisp morning air. The changing colors of the leaves. the delicious spices in pumpkin latte’s and the building excitement for all the holidays! Even as a kid, I loved the fall. I loved new pencils and paper, back to school shopping, and seriously I loved going to school. (Even now I get excited about school supplies in Target!) The fall and “back to school” felt like a fresh start. A new year and a new beginning. To this day, even though the new year starts in January, I still feel like it starts in September.
Yesterday we woke up to a delightfully crisp morning and it just fueled my Fall season fire. It feels like time for a new start or more a restart. In a little under a year Tom and I will be getting married. (“Today I met the boy I’m gonna marry....” sing it!) I want to get in shape and accomplish some other goals before then. Its not that I haven’t been trying to accomplish these goals before now I just feel like I may have started slacking a bit over the summer. It’s fall now though, and today is a new day!
Whatever you’ve been trying to accomplish, or wherever you want to go, let the fall give you a boost! No matter what happened yesterday, last week, or 20 minutes ago, it’s a new day, folks! You can’t go back and change the past but you can make a new start today. What I loved about back to school growing up was that it was a blank slate where anything could happen that was full of new opportunities. Consider this Monday your first day back at school... It’s a new day! clean your slate, restart or simply start.
It’s a bright shiny fresh new day! What are you going to do with it?
