So what do I do about it? I lean in.
For the next few days, I am going to lean in and mourn the upcoming return of routine. I am going to feel all the emotions of this time of year. I am going be to grateful, plan, and be excited about the wonderful family activities we have planned over the next few weeks, but I am also going to sit in the discomfort of being overwhelmed.
On Thursday, that is it, I am going to let it go, move on, and focus on all the exciting things that September has to offer:
- The return of routine - I love routine
- Back to School - I love the excitement and anticipation that come with the return of school
- Autumn - My absolute favourite season of scarves and boots
- Quieter weekends, with less structured plans
Until then, I will be over here, mourning the fact that summer is slowly coming to the most beautiful close yet, because truly, every year gets a little bit better.
The Tool Tuesday this week - lean in to the emotions you are feeling, honour them, welcome them, and then move on.
