It’s back-to-school time! It would be hard not to notice scrolling though my Facebook feed. Lot’s of kids in new outfits ready to head off to their next year of school.
I like their smiles. You can tell most of them are excited and eager to learn.
Every day they’ll learn something new. Some days it will be a new skill. Other days it might be facts. The really good days will have a little bit of both.
Kids aren’t the only ones who can learn. Each and every one of us can continue to learn. There are books, podcasts, online courses… the opportunities to gain knowledge are limitless. You could even asked someone skilled at something to teach it to you.
It is in the spirit of learning for both young and old that I offer up this week’s Bible Verse: Proverbs 18:15 (MSG).
“Wise men and women are always learning,
always listening for fresh insights.”
Here’s my challenge to you… as the kids are starting to learn once again take the opportunity to learn something yourself.
If you could learn one thing in the next 9 months what would you want it to be?
I was listening to Dave Ramsey’s Podcast this afternoon (like I usually do) and he had his daughter on. They were discussing their book, kids, money, and back to school.
It was brought up that the start of another school year is like a second new year.
How true! It’s a fresh start. Everything is shiny, new, and anything is possible.
For me personally I’m ready for our family to get back into a routine. As much as I love the laid back schedule of Summer… I really do enjoy the structure and routine of the school year. I know at least one of my kids feels the same way.
Whether you have kids or not you can use this second New Year to get a fresh start! Set a new goal and map out a plan to get there.
What is your favorite thing about back-to-school time?
