Hello!!! I know I have not been consistently posting, but I needed this holiday to rest. Well, the holiday is officially over, and I am back to face my reality.
How was your holiday? Mine was splendid. I finally had an opportunity to visit my parents, siblings, and friends after two years. I felt so emotional and excited at the same time; I am so grateful for every day and everything. I must say, this holiday gave me a better understanding of Michael. J. Fox statements, “Family is not an important thing it is everything.”
It felt so exciting and heartwarming to be back to “the full house,” as it reminded me of my childhood days. In fact, it also made me reflect on how much I have grown positively.
Personal growth is one of the most beautiful experiences in life. I would also define it as a transformation process in which significant improvement is made in one’s life; it could be one’s physical, emotional, spiritual intellectual, or financial state. It is not always noticeable; at least until a great deal of time has passed or when you experience any visible achievement.
Within the last year, I experienced personal growth in every ramification in life. However, I must say am still a work in progress. The reality of my growth so far, is that I opened my mind to learning and to change.
Personal growth is not something which happens at once. You need to work each day to ensure consistent growth. Sure, some days you will achieve more growth than others but your consistency and perseverance to learn each day makes the most significant impact in your life. It was not easy for me either, but I was determined. Trust me it will make more sense when you start seeing the result.
Well, according to Nhat Hanh “the way must be in you; the destination also must be in you and not somewhere else in space or time. If that kind of self-transformation is being realized in you, you will arrive.” This was my holiday realization, what was yours?
