I closed my eyes to soak in the beauty that July offered and suddenly it’s gone. Now it’s time to welcome August, which I call my transition month.
August is the last summer month and we do not want the fun to end. We are trying so hard to hold onto those last seasonal experiences. We know back to school is around the corner. Although we are not ready, for us, parents, we must start planning for the upcoming school year. We have to make sure our kids have what they need to be successful. For others, August is probably a transition from summer to fall. Probably, at the end of the month, some of us will start putting summer clothes away and fall decorations out.
Actually, August is a perfect month to reflect on how we want to end the year. It’s time to analyze what we have done so far, and what can be done to make the last quarter of the year productive. It’s not too late to work on all those goals that we have set at the beginning of the year. While it’s still bright outside, let’s make them happen. Let’s turn this month into the bridge that takes us from dream to reality.
If you have not done so yet, take some time during this month to reconnect with nature, do something fun, go to a new place, and remember to create some memories.
Have a blessed month of August.
