September 25- September: a mini New Year’s Eve?

Dear September,

in French, going back to school is called “la rentrée”, the return. And there is something cyclical about it: you follow the rhythm of the seasons!  Summer means slowing down for some… in our hemisphere 🙂 It also means heat, holidays…

And then, in September schools open and we get serious again.

The rhythm is the same also for grown ups who have children, or who are in the education system.

Now, this is stimulating and also annoying at the same time: stimulating because you feel free to make a new start. Get a new notebook with white pages. And annoying because you might feel things haven’t changed as much as you would have wished, compared to last year.

In other words, September is a mini New Year’s Eve.

A time for an update, comparisons, decisions.

A time for an evaluation of ourselves and our progress, by our standards.

Are we in similar situations, for example, in terms of relationships? (That was my first objective as I started blogging, by the way).

And how about professionally speaking?

Does for example a relationship that ends, count as progress? Is it the intensity of the feelings that counts or the result? Is it growth not to make the same mistakes but instead make new ones?

Hmm, what do you think?

I personally will sleep on this and try to answer in my next post 🙂

  1. Learning from any experience is a good thing. Learning from mistakes…Thomas A. Edison said (I am applying this to learning life lessons): “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” ― Thomas A. Edison

  2. I think that the relationship which ends should count as progress coz it might have made a person more wiser learning about herself as what does not work for her or what works for her.
