As September steps in where August once was, I confess I’m not ready for summer to end! Perhaps it’s because September ushers in so much change, and change is something I resist at times.
Where summer months feel carefree, September brings with it an air of responsibility. Students and teachers return to school. The world returns to its hustle. The days get shorter, and somehow it seems like there is less time. Everything feels sped up in this last quarter of the year as retail stores constantly remind us the holidays are a few short months away.
Do you feel that pressure too? To pick up your pace and kick things into high gear? Perhaps some of that is unavoidable in September as we all buckle down and get back to business. But I believe at times like this we need to be even more intentional about filling up our tanks with whatever fuels and energizes us.
Carve out that space to refuel, daily and weekly, as life gets busy once more. Make time to chase beauty, satisfy your soul, and ‘find the sunlight’ so you have strength for the darker days.
