I’ve never been one for quotes, but there are a handful of them that I love, and the title of this blog post has been one of my favourites for a long time. With September comes the start of Autumn (let’s call it autumn, the quote says fall but as I’m British I’m not sure I can pull that off) and for me, these words beautifully describe the renewal in the air at this time of year.

The leaves on the trees are starting to shed, and yes, Autumn is sometimes used to mean that something is in the early stages of decline, but something about this season gives me a feeling I can only describe as this: Let’s get started. It’s in the rich colours of nature and it’s in necessity, in a way, since carefree summer has ended and work things tend to crank up, but not only that; it’s in my mind, and based on what I’ve seen plenty of other people saying, I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way.

It starts when we are very young, of course; September is time to go back to school, clutching a carefully selected pencil case or new school bag, and a fresh chance to start again. I’m not going to claim to have had a horrific time at school but I was short, bookish and shy, which everyone knows is far from peak cool. The start of a new school term for me always felt like a fresh chance to become what I thought would be the best version of myself, like the characters in American chick flicks who return after summer break and are suddenly the coolest, most desirable girl in school. That never happened of course, (a high school in a suburb of Norwich isn’t quite the same as whatever sun-drenched state they were set in) but I would always start the year feeling that things which once seemed impossible perhaps weren’t any more.
