Growth in life

I’ve been contemplating lately on change and growth, and I have to keep reminding myself. . . So, naturally, I felt led to share.

Growth in your life, no matter the area, requires a few things:

* Getting out of your own way

* Overcoming obstacles

* Setting goals, yet being flexible on the time line- it’s also important to remember that it’s ok to set a goal down, and pick it back up later!

* Being honest with yourself

Growth takes change, and if you’re not ready to change- you’re not ready to grow.

So, if you’re feeling “stuck” in a certain area of your life- you might ask yourself a question!

Am I ok with staying where I’m at?! Or, do I want to do the work to change what is no longer benefiting me?!

For me, I know it’s time to start doing the work on some things I’ve been avoiding. Know that if you’re there, too- you’ve got this. It’ll be hard, but it’ll be worth it!

Your Goals

One thing I’m learning is that the goals we set don’t have to be grandiose. They don’t have to be loud. They don’t even have to be linear, following a specific track.

Write them down. And, also enjoy the journey. Know that if it doesn’t happen in the exact time frame you thought or how you thought, it still happens- and that’s something you should be proud of.

You can hustle. . . you can also take it slow.

Some seasons, your goals can be fluid.

This past year has taught me, that sometimes, goals happen long after you wrote the plan. Long after you changed the behaviors. Long after you’ve re-trained your brain. Long after you’ve done the front-end work.

So, set your goals. But, breathe. And be ok with them not happening on your time table. Because, sometimes, they don’t.
