Growth is optional - Week 29

“Life is a process of becoming. A combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.” ~Anais Nin

Week twenty-nine (January 8-14) 

Throughout January, there is constant chatter about transforming our lives, with myself included. I thrive when goals are put before me and a strategy is required to achieve them. Goals provide avenues of growth within the physical, mental and spiritual selves, and with the direction to implement these small changes in my daily routine, I flourish in new ways creating new habits which enforce the transformation I seek to achieve, and the only way to get somewhere new is to try something different...

Recently when reading about growth and opportunity I came upon this helpful reminder which compiles a list of the 15 invaluable laws of growth as written by John Maxwells 

 1. Law of Intentionality - Growth doesn't just happen.
 2. Law of Awareness - You must know yourself to grow yourself.
 3. Law of the Mirror - You must see value in yourself to add value to yourself.
 4. Law of Reflection - Learning to pause allows growth to catch up with you.
 5. Law of Consistency - Motivation gets you going. Discipline keeps you growing.
 6. Law of Environment - Growth thrives in conducive surroundings.
 7. Law of Design - To maximize growth develop strategies.
 8. Law of Pain - Good management of bad experiences leads to great growth.
 9. Law of ladder - Character growth determines the height of your personal growth.
10. Law of the rubber band - Growth stops when you lose the tension of where you are and where you could be.
11. Law of tradeoffs - You have to give up to go up.
12. Law of Curiosity - Growth is stimulated is asking why.
13. Law of Modeling - It's hard to improve when you have no one but yourself to follow.
14. Law of expansion - Growth always increases your capacity.
15. Law of Contribution - Growing yourself enables you to grow others.

I am grateful for all the opportunities I seek each year to uncover growth in new directions of my life. These pathways create the information required to move forward and the discovery of these common bonds in the relationships we share.

Week 29: Your favorite memory

Memories are such a wonderful thing, fleeting detail of the past that we collect as we reminisce about our time together. There are too many wonderful memories to pick a favorite, but the ones that stand out involve laughter, lots of laughter as the kids were growing up and their innocence created such joyful laughter.
