Growth: Why Growing is Beneficial

This photo represents growth; growing into the ultimate you. The flower has grown out of its old shell and into its new shell.

In life there will be times when outgrow certain things and certain people. That is completely normal; life itself is a learning process. In life you must learn to grow, if you don’t you will be stuck in the same phase forever. Growing helps you find your strengths, weaknesses, and more about you as a person. I can say that I have had major growth since I have graduated from high school and I can say that I am happy with it. I am still growing as of now but I appreciate every step of this process. I learned that the things I used to do or say cannot continue to grow with me as a try to grow better as a person. There are some people who can not grow with me as well. Letting go of those things and people are hard but in order to get to the next level or get to the spiritual level that I want it must be done. Any one can make a change and grow. You must be willing to let go of things that are toxic to your life, soul, spirit, mind, and body. Growing helps you become the most ultmate person that you have ever been. I compare growth to a snake shedding his old skin for his new one. When you let go of the old you and become a new you, you feel great. Things start to work out better for you, you start to accomplish more, you also feel better. I am still in process of shedding my old skin but once my old skin is completely gone I am going to feel better than ever! Growing means being able to let go of dead weight and gaining strength to take on whatever. What does growth mean to you? Have you grown into the ultimate person that you want to be?

  1. I think this concept gets more real to me every year as I mature. Learning to let go of past mistakes, showing myself grace, past relationships that were shallow, etc…helps us ultimately become happy and fulfilled. The joy is in the journey and remembering that every experience, good or bad, helps shape us…is an encouraging thought. Nice post.

  2. I feel that I am a completely different person with each passing year. Things that were important once do not matter, I feel I am more mature and clearly know what I want. Liked your post!

  3. As I get closer to 40, this message keeps getting stronger each year πŸ™‚ Love the concept, Leah. It's important to keep growing and if that means letting go of our comfort zone and some relationships, then so must it be πŸ™‚
