Your next first day

Because today marked the first day of school, we went outside and took a picture when most any other morning, we wouldn’t bother.

First days are memorable, full of possibilities. They make us sit up straighter, walk with intention and awareness. Because they perk up our attention, first days can keep us nimble, alert, and open to learn.

When we are young, our first days are handed to us by nature of just being new in the world. But as we grow older, living out more middle days, we experience fewer firsts unless we seek them out.

Tomorrow is the first day I’ve ever _______. You get to fill it in.
