Fresh Starts & Being Easy on Ourselves.


For many of us — perhaps especially if you have kids in school, or an affinity for fall —, September is the perfect time for a fresh start. I wrote recently about my fresh exercise start after a summer of indulgence!

Whether it is the new calendar year, or a new school year, milestones offer a great chance for fresh starts. I think it is a fantastic time to dream about what will be different, what systems can change & improve, and how to begin well.

But here we are, mid-way through September, and I want to offer another thought:


Be easy on yourself.


It is entirely possible that your new year-new you-new life best intentions have begun to reveal their cracks. Maybe systems have failed already, or your diligence about daily habits is waning. And I want to say, it’s o.k..

It is O.K. !

We are o.k.. :)


Be gentle with yourself today (and every day). Shopping ethically, eating healthily, flossing your teeth, exercising daily, teaching your kids responsibility … whatever it is that you are trying to do and have already “failed” — you have not failed.

Every day is a chance for a fresh start, a chance to change habits, make intentions happen, etc. But also, every day is a chance to be kind with yourself, do your best, try again, hold your head high.

You’re doing a good job.
