Back to School: No Supplies Needed
Back to school doesn't feel or look like back to school. No one is finishing up a vacation, few people are dropping college freshman off, and in California, we are already staying indoors, evading smoke, as wildfires rage around us.
I haven't even been to a Target this month, and usually I'm there at least once in August with my kids, as we check off the school supply list. The list dwindles as they age, and yet it gets more complicated. Why teachers love college-ruled composition notebooks and they are in short supply confounds me. Digging through the large cardboard display box of composition books, searching, searching, and only finding wide-ruled ones. Ahhh.
For me, the best part of going back to school was a new box of crayons, paired with a fresh notebook. I was prepared to color. Not sure what I would be coloring, but I was ready to color with the biggest box of crayons I could finagle out of my mom (remember: the larger the box the more likely it came with a sharpener inside the box). My mind was sharp and ready.
The feeling of the first few days was so lovely and light. You are settling in, organizing that desk or backpack, getting to know people and teachers, and feeling, well, as if things are going to be OK.
And, those crayons. The paper is wrapped so securely around them. It's going to be a good year, I told myself. But inside I was nervous and worried—would I be smart enough? (Imposter syndrome has haunted me for a long time . . .)
I want you to have a little of that new box of crayons and back to school feeling about being a leader.
And, so, dah-dah . . . I have the first Awesome Leader coloring book for you.
Download it and color away.
It's short, it's easy, it's fun! You'll get an A even if you color outside the lines.
