Embrace Yourself: Growth

Growth happens whether we want it to or not. Growing up, growing older, growing smarter, and growing spiritually; they are all part of growing wiser and hopefully happier. Over the years, we watch our children grow and start their own lives. I'm so blessed to have three spectacular kids that are now out in the world, working hard to make their own mark.
Growth is about change; however, change can sometimes be painful. Each time we make a decision and then act on it, growth occurs in a multi-dimensional way. Embracing yourself is easy during the good times. We celebrate happy milestones with parties, presents and family gatherings. Embracing yourself is more difficult in during the bad times, but that's often when the real growth occurs. Mandy Hale once said, "A great attitude becomes a great day which becomes a great month which becomes a great year which becomes a great life."
  1. Have a positive attitude even when times are difficult. Also known as "fake it 'til you make it."
  2. Before making big decisions, ask the advice of at least three people who love you.
  3. Realize that everyone makes mistakes. Forgive yourself and move on. 
  4. Let go of your past. How can you reach for the future if you won't let go of your past?
  5. Pray daily. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11.
