Have you ever felt disappointed as September arrives and summer comes to an end? Perhaps feeling the same way you feel at the beginning of the new year when the weight of not having taken any action on your goals suddenly hits you in the feels!
I get it. I lived most of my life feeling disappointed at the end of summer, at the end of fall, the end of the year. Definitely, at the end of the year. Why?
I’d be disappointed that…
I lived the same winter
I lived the same spring, summer and fall.
I lived the exact same year again
I didn’t grow
I didn't step outside my comfort zone
I didn't challenge myself
I didn’t run the race (both figuratively and literally)
I lived on the sidelines of my life.
I was just going through the motions and time kept slipping through my fingers before I could sum up the courage to take a single step. Can you relate? If you can, or if you just really want to ensure you have the absolute best summer, keep reading.

Decide you’re going to have a great summer & plan for it.
Reflect and figure out what a great summer looks like for you. Get specific and write it down. Set a few clearly defined goals for summer.
If you have littles at home get them involved and come up with a summer bucket list.
Create your own summer bucket list.
