You know how people make New Year’s resolutions? I see September as that same new beginning, line-in-the-sand-start-fresh moment. I thrive on routine and rhythm. When I get out of it, I am flustered and feel overwhelmed (like today). As the school year begins for my kids and myself, I take time to change mentality from the “lazy” days of summer, and back to the daily grind.
This year, I am looking forward to getting back to my morning meditation time. I am not a morning person yet I love the morning. I know that makes no sense at all. I HATE getting out of my comfy bed but I do like the cripsness and quiet of the morning. Make better sense? School forces me to get up early. I am excited to get back to family dinners instead of the kids coming in when they get hungry.
We have been informed that the first day of school has been delayed another week because the new buildings aren’t quite ready yet……….
What about you? Routine thumbs up or thumbs down?
