There’s something about late August into early September, when the air is still warm, the sun still high and mighty, the moments of summer not yet forgotten..
Sticky evenings spent outside long after the sun has gone down, counting the fireflies and rehashing the fun of the day turn into buzzy early mornings… the smell of cinnamon in your oatmeal, that first deep breath you take as you step out into the morning dew, the first chill in the air welcoming you to a new day, a new season.
It’s a beautiful reawakening.
No matter how much we gratefully age, the back to school season brings with it a much yearned for sense of starting again, the gift of a natural refresh.
As we prepare both our minds and our schedules for a new season, one of renewed focus, we aim to weave even more intentionality into our moments and days. Of course, we can think of no better way to embrace the energy and changing of both schedules and seasons than with a desk and workspace refresh.
In The Writing Life, famed author Annie Dillard writes:
“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing. A schedule defends from chaos and whim. It is a net for catching days….; it is a peace and a haven set into the wreck of time; it is a lifeboat on which you find yourself, decades later, still living.”
How beautiful is that?
Create your own peaceful haven with a fall desk and workspace refresh, starting with our FREE Annie Dillard Quote Art Print.
Hang or frame your art print in your workspace as a beautiful reminder to spend your days with intention, creating a schedule, a space, a day, free of chaos, full of peace.
Don’t let the fall workspace refresh stop there, however! To really cultivate the energy and focus you’re after, channel that old back to school shopping energy with a few new office and workspace supplies. ;)
