Let’s pretend, just for a second, that it is September. We have newly sharpened number 2 pencils and clean white pages in our spiffy Spiderman/Powerpuff/Kitten/Aaron Rodgers notebooks. And the teacher says, “Write about what you did on summer vacation.”
What we choose to do over the next weeks will be the content of our imaginary essay. We can hit Labor Day feeling invigorated, lighter, stronger, or… not. I want to be able to write about my improved cardio, my greater mastery of some challenging Pilates exercises, my many bike rides, and my increased knowledge.
And I wouldn’t mind going swimming. What’s on your list?
