You are allowed to take your time to grow in your own way

Author Unknown

April 20th - nothing happens overnight 



Take chances, make mistakes. Thats how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage.  You have to fail in order to practice being brave.

Mary Tyler Moore

Growth is a choice.  In order for change to occur, the change we seek, there is  a need for time and investment.  The process is not usually the part we are eager to engage in, but rather the end result is the carrot that leads us through the drudgery, exhaustion and necessary discipline.  Without the end goal in mind, the process would be gladly bypassed ore ignored.

It’s easy for us to feel sorry for ourselves, but instead of assuming the worst, we should find the goodness and the strength to be a joy seeker because life is short and we shouldn’t tolerate being unhappy. Stay strong and live well.

We all grow in our own ways and it takes time.  It takes time to know what you need.  It’s in making decisions and mistakes, first hand, is how we get a grasp on what we want.  It’s a priceless gift to yourself. and as you make choices you discover how you can and cannot get things done.

We don’t all have the same tastes, views and ways of living but rather than to be upset, be thankful for what you have and move on.  Celebrate the path you’re on. Take your time, make decisions, have patience and make them your own.  There are many different ways to learn and grow.  

Making effective and sound decisions is an art learned through life experience. Every decision we make also effects othere in our lives, so we need to make them wisely. Take your time and discover the best ones for all. 




Dont go through life, grow through life

It's all about the choices we make. Take time to make good ones!

I love the one at the top - "Don't wait for someone to bring you flowers, plant your own garden and decorate your own soul"

Every thing we say and do matters, yes. A ripple effect, yes; not unlike watching the ocean waves.
Good message!
