september

as september rolls around a lot of us see it as a new beginning (or like a new year). we are embarking on new classes, a new job, new projects, etc. the season begins to change from sultry & humid to cool & refreshing.

i see it as a time for renewal and reflection. a chance to really look deep within to see if you are on track to the life you want to live and the person you want to be. maybe you need to lighten your load by getting rid of some commitments that no longer resonate with you. maybe you want to try your hand at something new to spark your creative side. if there is something you want or need to change now is the time. take some time to reflect and see what it is that you really want.

with that being said, i have only one goal for september - NOTHING!

i am taking my own advice and paring down. i plan on doing some reflecting, spending time with my family and friends, celebrating ryan and my 4 year anniversary (!), prepping for my massage therapy classes that start sept 29th, and having lots of FUN!

I should copy you with this NOTHING goal. I'm trying to put order in my always-too-busy mind and life right now. Great post. Enjoy September!
