. The September List
Right about the middle of summer, it is time to begin a “September List”. This is a list of all those things which keep running around in your pretty little head that need doing and aren’t going to get done any time soon.
You see, summer activities, vacations, visitors, and other pressures move us away from our regular routines. We lose the important, and often very essential cadence to our lives….thus the importance of the “September List”.
Begin it now, noting those things which will need doing eventually but can wait while you carve watermelon, take the kids to swimming lessons, hike that mountain with your family, and bandage those scrapped knees.
Your mind will relax and rest and your soul can make memories because now the “September List” will keep the pressures preserved in writing until everyone is settled down into a routine again with the coming of Fall. Then you can tackle that list.
Happy Independence Day to you all. I have a birthday coming up, so Happy Birthday to me and to any other of you July babies!
