Seasons of Change and Growth

Seasons of Change and Growth

 

~~ ‘Tis the Season…

for Change and Growth ~~

 

growth mindset

 

I missed blogging yesterday due to other obligations, so in an effort to keep going and not quit, I’m browsing past posts¬† and selecting some that seem relevant to share again as we enter this month that heralds a change of seasons. I hope this one speaks to you and proves helpful and encouraging!

 

 

I am thankful when change leads to growth! It’s not always pleasant–think “growing pains“–but ultimately, growth is better than NO growth! We may often say we wish a baby or small child–or kitten or puppy–would stay that size forever. Yet, it’s actually an abnormality in one’s physical condition to stay the same size and NOT grow. Likewise, it’s abnormal for us to stay “as is” and not change, grow, and move forward in our lives.

 

 

 

So onto this inspirational thought for today…

 

“You must build a bridge between *thinking about* action and actually beginning to *move* in the right direction.

You must choose to grow in your relationship with your heavenly Father.

Actions must follow your choices, and these actions become the force that will turn your life around.

When we talk about change, it often sounds harsh to those listening:

‘Change your attitude.’

‘Change your tone.’

 

It’s true–change can be both tough and painful, but what happens to your view of change if you look at it as growth?

 

Growth makes you stronger.

Growth is like flowers blooming.

You gain wisdom when you grow.

Growth is a good thing.

 

So perhaps we should think of action and change as growth.”

 

–Dr. Tim Clinton in “Turn Your Life Around”

 

 

 

My Reflections

 

Wow, what an important concept this is – build a bridge and make a connection between thoughts and actions, because we can never just stay in one place. We either move forward or backward; NOT moving means stagnation…or death! And growth requires forward motion. Consider change as equal to growth. Good thoughts!

 

 

So What Are YOUR Thoughts?

 

Had you considered the importance of building a bridge between thoughts and actions?

 

Do you agree that change = growth?

  1. Love the post! Midlife is a time of reinvention for me, which includes being a new blogger, just 4 months! Talk about a new challenge, LOL. Always learning and growing brings satisfaction and keeps depression away for me, the only way is forward. Thank you!

  2. Change is inevitable in society today, but it is always how we handle it that really matters. Change is hard and is meant to be hard because it is different and sometimes unknown. But if you can come out on the otherside of a difficult situation that required a lot of change then you can conquer anything.

  3. Yes I agreed that change = growth. Positive or negative change leads to growth, we learn by the Change with the view to move forwards. Sometimes moving forwards can be difficult, however we learn and we grow. I like the concept of building a bridge between thoughts and actions. I have never thought about it in that way before and is something I will now ponder.
