Every semester I think it’s going to get easier but the first day jitters always get me. Over the years I have realized that there are a few things that help make the first day a little easier.
Holiday hustle is starting to wind down, the ball has dropped to ring in a new season. Now is the time to make a clean slate, starting with your closet. Unless you’re a minimalist there is work to be done. Clean space, clean mind to bring forth new ideas in this new year.
Step into the season, a time of newness. Months, weeks, days that may be hard could be right around the corner that cannot be controlled, but the ability to react can be. Step back breathe, realize that people are nearer then they feel when the walls seem to close in. Times of happiness will come that bring tears and bellyaches of joy. It’s the time to review how far you’ve come in this year of 2017 and how far you wish to climb in 2018.
