Personal Growth

Ask yourself this… How much do you actually GROW, as an individual, when life is flowing smoothly?  I am referring to the times when life is happy, carefree and in complete balance.  The answer…probably not much!  These moments in life are periods of rest for your heart, mind and soul.  Embrace the gift of smooth waters.  Take time for yourself to create, relax and reflect on life’s blessings.

It is during life’s most difficult challenges that personal GROWTH occurs.  The rocky roads, the torrential downpours, the slippery slopes…it is during these painful moments that we somehow gain strength and emerge from deep within.  Life’s most challenging times, when it feels like all hope is lost, is when we truly GROW.

Trust in the magic of change and embrace new beginnings…

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…

  1. I can’t tell you what this post means to me at the moment. My recent illness has made me and hubby look hard at our lives and question the things that aren’t working. We’re resolved to make some huge changes in 17/18 as a result and these changes will mean a better future than if we’d continued on unchallenged. In time, I hope to look back on this period of adversity with some fondness. Thanks for putting it into such succinct words hon.

  2. This is so true! After 3 plus years of trying to put my life together during epileptic struggles and cancer, and even gall bladder surgery like Jess had, this definitely resonates with me. Keep reminding us of our inner truths Roda, it’s important and so appreciated. ❤

  3. The last few months dealing with depression have been heaven and hell to me. I never thought something so great as personal growth could come out of it, but turns out it has. Thank you. 😍

  5. I enjoyed your short but meaningful post. You’re absolutely right about discovering growth in the midst of difficult challenges. For me, it’s especially important to take time away from my busy schedule and be alone with my thoughts to reflect, not only on life’s blessings, but in the overall direction my life is going. Keep posting! If you don’t mind check out my first post 🙂 https://eduardogardea.com/2017/09/30/the-power-of-influence/
