Look well into thyself; there is a source of strength which will always spring up if thou wilt always look. - Marcus Aurelius
So the summer is officially over, September is here! How are you feeling now the new school term has started or is about to start? We had a beautifully warm summer here in the U.K. - balmy warm evenings, where the days seemed to go on for ever - I will miss this time, but I am also a seasonal person and love the changes that each season brings, like the crisp and cooler mornings in September. I’ve even bought myself a new pair of shoes for the new term!
The changes which the new school term brings, while exciting and new, can also bring up an element of fear. Wondering if you’ll have friends this new year, what the teachers will be like and whether you can do the work are questions which will all appear at this time of year. The same can be said for our work life. I remember in one of my previous roles, when I loved what I did and was good at it, the days just seemed to fly by, but when I was in a situation, following the promotion I had longed for for so long, I genuinely felt out of my depth. I was worried I wasn't doing the job as well as I could and felt like an imposter in an office where once I felt so happy. I now realise I was more than capable of doing the job, I had simply lost confidence in myself and the more I worried about it, the more my confidence dropped!
