First Day Of School

This week was my daughters first day of school.

As usual, we spent the last few weeks of summer buying new clothes and school supplies.

Everything is shiny new shiny and brand new.

New shoes, new clothes, new pencils.


It’s time to start over again.

A few steps further than we were before.

A new grade with new challenges.

Welcome to growth.

Welcome to life.

In our lives we all have cycles of renewal and re-commitment.

It is our choice what we do with them.

For some it’s back to the same old habits

For others the cycle is a catalyst.

What we choose is up to us.

Nobody else.

Just us.

I hope this year, at least for my daughter, that she will continue to grow and develop as a young

A new school year.

It’s a chance for everyone to recommit, to renew, and to grow.

Whether you’re going to school.

Or just dropping someone off.

You are part of the renewal cycle.

It is your choice what you do with it.

Don’t miss out on a chance to be a part of the cycle of renewal and growth for yourself and others.
