22-191 Growth

Today’s Mandala

“Between stimulus and response
there is a space.
In that space is our power
to choose our response.
In our response
lies our growth and our freedom.”

— Viktor E. Frankl

“The key to growth
is the introduction of
higher dimensions of consciousness
into our awareness.”

— Lao Tzu

“Everything about your life,
about your body, grows!
Your cells regenerate;
your hair, your nails,
everything grows for your entire life.
And your soul needs
exploration and growth.
And the only way you’ll get it
is by forcing yourself
to be uncomfortable.
Forcing yourself to get outside,
out of your head.”

— Mel Robbins

Today’s MotD encourages us to embrace our growth. Everything about our planet and our existence on this planet is about growth. To defy our growth is to defy our very nature. Yes, it can be uncomfortable; yes, it can be exhausting; yes, it can be riddled with stumblings. And in the end, it is all rewarding.

Just know that whatever it is we’re going through now, remember that we’ve been growing, expanding, learning things all our lives…and we’re still here. Things we’ve struggled with in the past, are now commonplace. We’re just kicking things up a notch.

If a mantra will help, try this one: ”I handled it before; I can handle it again” or we can simplify it to ”I can handle it.”

“Growth is an erratic
forward movement:
two steps forward,
one step back.
Remember that
and be very gentle with yourself.”

— Julia Cameron
