#growth ~ “Fall in love with becoming the very best version of yourself.” (Unknown)
Every new day, we have an opportunity to work on a super cool project: the project of becoming the very best versions of ourselves. In order to be able to work on that project, we have to allow ourselves to fully open up to every possibility of Growth. Growth can (and should) become our best friend. Sometimes we’ll get mad at Growth because it’ll hurt like all heck. Sometimes, we’ll love and adore Growth because we will immediately see the ways in which it’s our ally. But most of all, we must be patient. It takes a while for Growth to do its thing, and while that’s happening, we have to (genuinely) be willing to accept whatever comes across our path and interpret it as a lesson and a teacher.
Working our way to the very best version of ourselves will take patience, time and lots of revamping. The very best version of myself is not version 1. Or version 2 or 3. But if I allow Growth to be my best friend, and take the time to be my own greatest fan and encourager, the best version of myself can be me, right now: version 2468. And then, I can keep topping myself. Version 2469 will be even stronger.
Take the time to sort through what’s inside of you… and learn to love it because you love yourself, and you love working on your own journey. Take an imaginary machete and clear out what needs to be gone. Make space for new things. Good things. Your interior environment is your reality. Plant ideas, dreams, passions, and principles. Tend to them. Get down and dirty and become one with them. Becoming the very best version of yourself can become your most favorite project ever. 💪
