“Don’t GO through life, GROW through life.” Eric Butterworth
Last week while sweeping the floor, I was planning my day’s activities and decided not to do something that I would normally do. It wasn’t anything major but not doing it would save me time and money. Because the change was for the better after I finalized my decision not to, I remarked out loud “that’s GROWTH”. Have you ever reflected on how much you’ve personally GROWN? If you have, did you stop to pat yourself on the back? If not, you should of because even life’s small moments are worthy of a celebration. Recognizing that people achieve some level of GROWTH every day, I began to ponder why we don’t celebrate minor achievements and accomplishments as if they were major ones. Especially since everyday people resist the urge to do something –to overeat, to smoke, to drink, to do drugs, to be argumentative, to have an attitude, to be angry, to get out of bed, etc. – which already makes their daily effort, a major accomplishment. Although these small feats go unnoticed by others, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t celebrate our own PERSONAL GROWTH. These small spurts of PERSONAL GROWTH give us the motivation to continue and that gets us closer to our goal. The very thought of change combined with the action to change, in itself should be a celebratory moment. Are you experiencing PERSONAL GROWTH in some area of your life? I AM!!!! So for this week’s blog, let’s talk SHIP about PERSONAL GROWTH!!!
