Motivation Mondays: Tips For June

Tips For June: June is the first month of the summer season and a great time to revisit the goals we set for the year. It is also the perfect season to start that exercise routine we skipped and get ready for all the wonderful colors and trips summer can bring. June always puts a smile on my face because it reminds me of the warm and colorful blooms to come after months of freezing temperatures, snowfall, and minimal color in nature. As the wildlife around me start to come out of hibernation, and the shoots from perennials planted many seasons ago poke their heads to the top of the soil, I breathe a sigh of relief and thank my Creator for the return of life.  Yes, it is an experience worthy of comment, especially if you have lived through a terrible winter season. Come back later for a few tips to help you enjoy the month and beyond.


A Memory Of June Claude McKay
When June comes dancing o’er the death of May,
With scarlet roses tinting her green breast,
And mating thrushes ushering in her day,
And Earth on tiptoe for her golden guest,

I always see the evening when we met–
The first of June baptized in tender rain–
And walked home through the wide streets, gleaming wet,
Arms locked, our warm flesh pulsing with love’s pain.

I always see the cheerful little room,
And in the corner, fresh and white, the bed,
Sweet scented with a delicate perfume,
Wherein for one night only we were wed;

Where in the starlit stillness we lay mute,
And heard the whispering showers all night long,
And your brown burning body was a lute
Whereon my passion played his fevered song.

When June comes dancing o’er the death of May,
With scarlet roses staining her fair feet,
My soul takes leave of me to sing all day
A love so fugitive and so complete. via

We real cool. We
Left school. We

Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We

Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We

Jazz June. We

Tips For June: – Take time to smell the flowers, revisit your goals for 2019, get fit for the languid days of summer, plant some seeds, celebrate Juneteenth, and share your gratitude for all the good in your life. What would you add to this? “And what is so rare as a day in June? Then, if ever, come perfect days.” Start the summer with zip and zeal and add a dose of gratitude to the mix.

There Is A June When Corn Is Cut by Emily Dickinson
There is a June when Corn is cut
And Roses in the Seed—
A Summer briefer than the first
But tenderer indeed

As should a Face supposed the Grave’s
Emerge a single Noon
In the Vermilion that it wore
Affect us, and return—

Two Seasons, it is said, exist—
The Summer of the Just,
And this of Ours, diversified
With Prospect, and with Frost—

May not our Second with its First
So infinite compare
That We but recollect the one
The other to prefer? via

Tips For June: – Stay informed and catch up on facts and figures. Did you know that June is also the month we celebrate Juneteenth Day? Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day and Liberation Day, is a holiday celebrated on 19 June to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.

June Thunder by Louis Macneice via
The Junes were free and full, driving through tiny
Roads, the mudguards brushing the cowparsley,
Through fields of mustard and under boldly embattled
Mays and chestnuts

Or between beeches verdurous and voluptuous
Or where broom and gorse beflagged the chalkland–
All the flare and gusto of the unenduring
Joys of a season

Now returned but I note as more appropriate
To the maturer mood impending thunder
With an indigo sky and the garden hushed except for
The treetops moving.

Then the curtains in my room blow suddenly inward,
The shrubbery rustles, birds fly heavily homeward,
The white flowers fade to nothing on the trees and rain comes
Down like a dropscene.

Now there comes catharsis, the cleansing downpour
Breaking the blossoms of our overdated fancies
Our old sentimentality and whimsicality
Loves of the morning.

Blackness at half-past eight, the night’s precursor,
Clouds like falling masonry and lightning’s lavish
Annunciation, the sword of the mad archangel
Flashed from the scabbard.

If only you would come and dare the crystal
Rampart of the rain and the bottomless moat of thunder,
If only now you would come I should be happy
Now if now only.

    June is the first month of a summer break and it is so nice to spend this days with more time, activities and adventures with our loved ones and friends. Aside from that I also consider this month as a perfect time for me to revisit my 2019 goals.

    Such beautiful pictures and poetry (one can never go wrong with an Emily Dickinson poem). I love the idea of reevaluating goals and making time for some reflection and gratitude in June, especially as it marks the halfway point of the year.

    I know for myself I need to revisit my goals for 2019, especially since the year is halfway over. I can honestly say that I’m pretty proud of myself, I’ve accomplished some of my goals and so it’s time to set new ones. There is still a lot I want to accomplish and I’m definitely grateful for the all the amazing things that have occurred.

    Honestly, I hate summer.. I don’t like the heat.. I dislike sweating..What I love about summer is the flowers that blooms.. Beautiful colors around.. Everything is so alive.. Here in Philippines, summer starts by March… June here is the start of rainy season – which I really like.

    It is always a joy to see someone sharing a poem by Emily Dickinson, one of my favourites poet. She has such insight into life – and death. I’ve read a lot of Macniece and I can never quite decide whether I like his poetry or not but I rather like June Thunder. I suppose the idea of washing away the preconceptions and hangups of the past appeals to me.

    In our workplace, June is the last month of our fiscal year. It’s a great time to allow yourself to create things you might not normally create — or make progress in directions you wouldn’t otherwise prioritize. Next month will be another year for us, New chance and new projects to work for.

    In my part of the world, the month of June ushers in the rainy season. I am excited to hear the raindrops again and to see the plants come alive after a long, hot and dry summer. June makes me reflect on the first half of the year that has passed by so quickly. I have come to know that I am off-track again, healthwise, but I will do my best to be healthier towards the end of this year.
