A slight cool breeze in the air means that we’re headed back to school. There was clearly genius behind in the first person to suggest starting on a Thursday.
I confess, I didn’t understand the logic at first, but everyone is exhausted by Friday! The students, the staff, the custodians that spent the summer putting a sheen on those floors that makes one feel like they’ve crossed an ice rink.
Then we get a small break and the routine begins. The day after the first day of school, I overheard someone say, “There are just 197 more to go.”
There’s beauty in having routine. It will be followed by football games, clubs and organizations coming back together, the homecoming game and, ah yes, fundraising.
The getting back to the grind is hard for some, so remember a dose of patience and look for positivity in everything or looking for the positivity in anything.
There’s a great website called “Every Monday Matters” that offers little doses of inspiration, some suggestions for inspirational perspiration activities and more.
