This may be my last blog entry in 2021, and as I write this my skin begins to curl thinking of everything this year has given me. As I reflect, I think the most significant take-away I’ve had has been the feeling of growth.
We often think of growth as just a physical aspect; the growth of our height or size, the growth of our hair, etc. We also use it to describe our upward hike in our careers or “status.” But how many of us take the time to recognize our internal growth; the growth in our heart, mind, soul? The growth we’ve accomplished from battling every single challenge that came our way, the tiny little wins that made us better people, the discomfort that pushed us outside of our limiting beliefs, and the lessons that made us wiser & warmer.
For me, I realized that if I frame everything as an opportunity for growth, I will always be on my way to my highest self. I encourage you to reflect on every time you put yourself first, showed gratitude for even the toughest moments, lead with love, and so on. These moments were no small feat on your journey towards living the life you dream of. Out of each moment you grew one step closer to the best version of yourself, and that is something to celebrate.
I wish you the best this holiday season and a fruitful new year.
