Begin as You Wish to Continue

A new school year is starting or is about to start. Pencils are sharp, highlighters are full, laptops are charged. Now what about you?

Each year, you get to begin again. You determine what your grades, your involvement, and your attitude are going to be.

My mom always tells me, “Begin as you wish to continue.” And there’s a lot of truth to that. The habits and attitudes that you form at the beginning of the school year (and of anything really) will heavily influence how you continue to do things as you go on throughout the year.

So start with good study habits (if you need tips, let me know). Start with a good attitude towards teachers–if you treat them well, it’s amazing how much they’re willing to work with you.

And make sure to find a little time each day to spend with God. The small troubles you’ll encounter along the way don’t seem as big when you’re basking in the vastness of his love and might.

Begin with an open mind. Teachers, classes, technology, and more change from year to year.┬áPrepare yourself to try new things and learn how these new things work. The more open you are to change, the more you’ll grow.

What are you looking forward to with this new year? Is there anything we can pray about for you? Do you have any tips on beginning well? Please share!
