I can’t believe that it is already the Labour Day long weekend. It seemed like it was just yesterday that June was arriving and the weather was starting to get hot. It is a bit different in the summer time when you have a full time job and you don’t go to school anymore. The days all start to mesh into one and there is no change that tell you when something is different. Every year when I smell the marygolds, it always takes me back to when I was younger and just anticipating the first day of school. I would get into my new clean clothes and attend the first day of school with pride, nervousness but also with hope. It would be a new year and that meant a fresh start.
Now that I am an adult and in the working world things are a bit different and my priorities are always changing. I have goals and ambitions that I am striving to achieve. If it is one thing that I have learned since I have graduated university is that it is important to have and strive for life goals. If you don’t then what are you living for? It’s great if you are making a lot of money, but if you just let it sit there, what is the point? If you’ve always wanted to learn a skill but haven’t done so, what is stopping you? We are on this world for a short time so we shouldn’t let anything stop us from doing what we want and love.
September is like a wake up call for me every year. I might not be going back to school, but I have goals that I want to achieve. I make to-do lists of what I would love to see or learn and ways that I can get them done. We should always keep on moving forward and never stop learning. We will never learn everything in our life times, but that doesn’t mean that we should stop once we graduate high school or university. Take a course or a class that might interest you, even if you don’t need it for work. Just do it and see where it takes you. You might meet a new person or find a new passion that you weren’t aware of before.
September is a check point every year for me and I think it will always remain that way. It is also the beginning of one of my favorite seasons; fall. 🙂
What are you looking forward to the most in the fall season?
