Don’t sit and stagnate. Choose to grow and bloom.
When you sit back and stay in your pod, in this case, your comfort zone, you limit yourself. A flower does not bloom until it pushes out of its pod, expanding and growing until it reaches its full potential.
Expand your limits, and you may be surprised at the beauty and joy you discover in your own growth. Don’t be afraid to learn something new and stretch yourself.
There is usually a struggle as we grow because we are pushing into new and unfamiliar territory. We must adapt to our new surroundings, which may take time. The thing to remember is you weren’t always where you are at today. You had to learn something to get to this point, and you will need to continue to educate yourself if you are to continue to thrive.
When we stop learning, we stagnate, and things become routine with no effort. Eventually, the joy and excitement wear off, taking passion with it. As things become rote, we stop paying attention to detail. Ultimately we become bored because there is nothing new to edge us forward.
Unhappiness is found in boredom, so make sure to infuse your life with the beauty and intrigue of knowledge. Growth only comes when we learn. When we grow and stretch, we become wiser.
With wisdom comes a certain knowing, an understanding that life is an ever continual cycle of growth. Some things wither and die when left untended while others rest and recuperate like a flower in winter, gathering strength to grow and bloom anew. It is a never-ending cycle.
Sometimes we meld what we learn and apply it to existing methodologies in our lives. This, like the merging or splicing of flowers, creates a new hybrid. Something, that when fed, grows stronger and brighter.
Reach for your dreams and live with passion and as you journey through life, continue to grow and bloom.
