Welcome August, the month of Soul!
As the summer months come to a close and the end of summer sparks soulful ponder, there are some fun days of celebration in August that you might not know of: National Raspberry Cream Pie Day, National Lighthouse Day, Sisters Day, Book Lover’s Day, and Relaxation Day.
The summer Olympics begin in Rio on August 5th. The event is a truly remarkable one, bringing together athletes from all around the world for healthy competition, the ultimate reward for high-level achievement. Every athlete at this event should be applauded for their commitment to attaining their personal best- something that we should all aspire to do, no matter what our passions may be.
There is something about this wonderful month that inspires rest, relaxation, and vacation. This final month of summer encourages outdoor living, and with that, new memories are created. We seek space and fresh air from a hectic urban life, and the routine of our every day. So we head into the mountains or to the beaches where we experience fresh air and can unwind. I encourage you to take this time to rejuvenate and recover, and spend time with family, friends, or just yourself, before returning back to the hustle and bustle of your lives, while gathering strength for a fresh start for the fall season ahead.
Happy end of summer!
