Motivation Monday

I love Back-to-School.

My daughter is headed off to college in a couple of weeks, and we have been doing a lot of shopping for school supplies and stuff for her dorm room.

I find this time of year very inspiring, it makes me want to buy new supplies, make plans for the fall and holiday season, and pull out my calendar fill all my days with business activities.

Why not use the seasons to motivate yourself, especially back-to-school.

Each season has so much to offer, the winter is about starting over, spring renewal, summer planning, and fall getting into action. This is the perfect time of year to get everything together for a successful fall and holiday season.

What do you love about back to school?

  1. I always miss that back to school time....buying new clothes and supplies and being a little nervous! Fall is my favorite season though so I am really looking forward to it. ~Val

  2. Val, fall is my favorite season too. Which is probably why I love back to school.

  3. I've been doing back to school shopping too :) Granted I don't need much for college, just a few notebooks and some new pens (never underestimate the power of a good pen!) but it still gets me excited for the new semester!

  4. I haven't had kids in school for 8 years but I still by new supplies this time of year. They are on sale after all!! And I agree it's the time of year to start thinking about holiday plans and transitioning from the dog days of summer and refocusing on business.

  5. excellent design!
    thanks a lot for sharing with us :)

  6. I hope your daughter has a great time at college! She must be so excited. I love back to school supplies, too - new notebooks, pencils, erasers, and all that. :) Love 'em!

  7. I have always adored back to school shopping! I love roaming the aisles full of crisp, empty notebooks, brand new crayons, markers, pens, pencils, rulers, erasers... ahhh, such fun. This time of year always inspires me to come up with new and grand ideas, fall is so invigorating after a hot and sultry summer! I'm working on Christmas gifts as we speak and the ideas are flowing so fast I can hardly keep up! :)

  8. I don't need supplies for school, but being the paper-loving, organizing addict that I am, I love the cheaper prices on all my favorite stuff. Just got some new binders today :D


Your thoughts and ideas are an important part of the conversation, thanks for sharing!
