I committed to making 2015 my year to grow. To expand my mind, my business and my heart (Amen) And just as I glued that last image promoting growth and expansion on my vision board, viola! here comes growth in all of it's experiential glory. I was quickly reminded that the process of growth is equal parts fun, excitement, play, and also grueling, arduous, defeating, and sometime painful!
When my son experiences teenage growth spurts he complains that his knees hurt and reaches for some yoga balm - similar to tiger balm without the potent odor. I remind him that without some pain he wouldn't experience such profound growth. Well that's true for other ways in which we grow - mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In this week's Sun-day design remember growing hurts so good! Relish in the positive tension you feel as you learn, do and become a better version of you.
There may be an area in your life where you're practicing moving that space in your life to the next level. You're reading the books, journaling and doing the work to transform. Each day you're more aware, present and perceptive, and that progress allows you to see how much work you still need to do. So if you're working to grow your money you'll need to create and stick to that budget, bye bye sporadic spending (ooh, pain). Looking to heal important relationships in your life then you have to be willing to own your part of the breakdown and feel the labor pains of rebuilding the relationship - that by the way is a reflection of the relationship you have with you (ouch, that's a blow). Even building your business whether it's bricks and mortar, product based or online services, the learning demands are constant.
This week turn that sore spot to a sweet spot, massaging that space of growth with love, compassion, and understanding. When you feel that tinge of anxiety, frustration or disappointment just smile because you know you're growing. Leave a comment and share your personal growth story.
The life we experience is designed to help us grow. My wish is that you learn from me as much as I learn from you. Share your life lessons and let's build together.
