Opportunities for Growth

Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely. – Karen Kaiser Clark

The strongest principle of growth lies in the human choice. – George Eliot

I am choosing to grow.

I have always been someone who loved learning and have challenged myself to continue to grow. However, most of the time I have chosen the time and the place, and what it was that I was going to learn.

I have, at times, avoided some tough lessons. (who hasn’t, right?)

Sometimes life gives you opportunities for growth that you would rather not have – the option for growth is too hard, scary, ill timed, or frankly, is just something that you don’t care to learn.
Sometimes though, you just can’t avoid a good old life lesson, and voilà, you’ve got yourself an opportunity for growth.

Now’s your chance to choose wisely. It may be overwhelming, hard and stressful, or perhaps it will open you up to new ideas and ways of seeing things that you never expected.

At least that’s what I am finding.

Is it still hard? Yes, it is, but as I mentioned before, I have always loved a good challenge.
