Have you ever been in a place where you feel stale or stagnant in your growth in any area of your life? Cause I have. I think in every aspect of life there is periods of growth, rest, periods of confusion, and periods of clarity. During the periods of stagnancy it’s easy to get into a rut and think that you aren’t going anywhere (or at least that’s how I get...anyone?) It’s important to remember that life is an eb & flow. It’s important to rest in these moments and plant seeds for the future so that when the time for growth comes we will be able to flourish. Take advantage of the stand-still by feeding your soul and watering the seeds of opportunity. Read books, pray, meditate, take long bubble baths, take yourself to dinner, sit on a bench in a park and watch kids run around with wreckless abandon, make art! Whatever it is that you find feeds your soul...do that! And do a lot of it! I’ve wasted too much precious time focusing on the growth that i don’t have, rather than focusing on the fact that growth IS coming and now is my time to live in the present and cherish each moment for what it is. right here, right now.
(this is me preaching to me, btw! I’m hope some of you identify)
