Chapter 3, Page 7, Book 19

Growth itself contains the germ of happiness.

Pearl S. Buck

March 7 - Times, they are a'changing

Don’t go through life, grow through life.

Eric Butterworth

We are always growing, always changing.  We grow, we change, we become.  Sometimes in life we keep the same interests we have and sometimes we change.  It’s a process of growing up and adapting to the changes in the world. but for one reason or another, every interest shapes us into who we are now and who we are meant to be.

Most of us want to do better than we we did the day before.  We like to improve what was done in the past and make each day better. The key to bettering yourself it progress and growth.  To better yourself you have to be willing to make a commitment and stick to it.

We learn a lot over the years, but still there is always room for improvement.  I’ve found that the more I know, the more I have to learn.  Being better is a choice. It’s something all of us can do if we choose to. We get it right sometimes, and other times we fail. but at least we try.  Weve got to  believe that tomorrow will be better than today and every thing we do does make a difference.

A feeling of continuous growth is a wonderful source of motivation and self confidence.

I'm amazed at how much I learn daily at my job in a field I've been working in for over 40 years. It is good for our brains to learn new things; it challenges them and I think helps keep them young. I do agree that we have to believe tomorrow will be a better day; that indeed gives us hope!

Changing, rearranging! I still smile recalling a story my former pastor shared: Her mother taught that our bodies' cells regenerate themselves every 6-7 years … therefore if you didn't like (e.g.) liver, you should try it again in a few years. (Come to think of it, I've finally learned to like mushrooms and tomatoes.)
Farcical aside, I sure believe there's something new to be learned every day!


we can accomplish so much if we allow ourselves to grow. "We get it right sometimes, and other times we fail. but at least we try."

I actually LIKE change. My son and I were talking about this the other day--that people "my age" often fight change. I embrace it because I feel like I grow and am engaged when I am facing changes.
Have a wonderful night-xo Diana

Seasons of growth and change are tough, but I know I'd be unhappy if nothing ever changed. Please email me so I can send your book to you from the 10th Blogaversary sweeps!
