Growing Pains

I have found that I am growing. Some days I wake up feeling conflicted and anxious. Other days, I wake up feeling refreshed. In these moments, I hit a high reflecting on my progressions. But when I sit too long, I feel heavy. I have become more comfortable escaping my comfort zone. Maybe this is what it’s all about. Embracing heavy emotions and sitting with them. I have been able to discuss my vulnerabilities and provide personal insight. I have engaged with others. I have lessened my pride and ego. I have accepted my individual journey. I guess, the moral of the story is growth is scary and I still have a long way to go but I am soaking up this moment of gratitude for the progress that I have made and I am hanging on to a fleeting moment of happiness.

    Growth isn’t meant to be easy. In gardening, the plants that grow indoors struggle with being transitioned to the outside because they have to adjust to the stronger winds. Versus plants grow outside already have grown into the environment. What’s really neat is that God can use all things for His purpose and our growth. <3

    Beautiful thoughts. I’m glad that you had a moment of gratitude. May your happiness be not so fleeting. The journey most definitely has it’s growing pains, but I believe that there is still plenty of hope, joy and peace in Jesus. Keep your chin up, Kiki. <3

        For me it’s all,about the journey not the destination. Try to make the right steps and try to enjoy as much of the trip as possible. To use your beautiful words, it’s about Growing and trying to enjoy that growth. The bad times make the good times more precious.

        Yes, that is the goal. Although I am someone who struggles with this, I am a constant work in progress.
