Growth – currently my second most important Value. After Love! Though whether this is the right way round or not I still ponder over!!
Anyway when your Values are in order and you’re living by them then Growth happens. Or it should do, I think! Personal Growth. Spiritual Growth (and by that I don’t mean Religious – well for me it doesn’t). It means Growth within oneself!
Humans need Growth I believe or life becomes stale. I believe Relationships need to Grow to remain passionate – which I presume is what those in relationships want! And those of us not in relationships quite fancy!
I nearly missed out on Growth this week! In fact if I’m brutally honest (which I usually am here) I probably wasn’t the best I could have been with my “hanging on to Significance, Cordiality and Fairness” brothers! But at the 11th hour – thanks to some Strategic Intervention – I rescued Growth and it’s given me a little buzz and tingle in my tummy!! (OK that sounds as though I’ve finally flipped – but that’s where the feeling is!! – and no raised eyebrow suggestions please!!!)
Sometimes to experience Growth perhaps one needs to do something which initially feels totally alien. Which I might add it did!
But climbing out of the “communal playpen of cross 2 year olds” was quite empowering! Slightly expensive! But nonetheless empowering!
