In this first week of the year, many people anticipate beginnings, changes, and opportunities for growth. Share with us an image that evokes this spirit of change and newness — the smile of a new friend, a freshly planted garden, an empty journal waiting to be filled. Growth is very personal, and I encourage you to interpret this as literally or as broadly as you like. Happy New Year — we can’t wait to see your photos!
People are like dirt. They can either nourish you and help you grow as a person or they can stunt your growth and make you wilt and die. ~ Plato ~
When I noticed this little tree growing in the inside of a rotten tree trunk I found it uplifting. From decay – new growth was being supported. This is an amazing environment we live in. Just like this little tree, we need to have a supportive environment to thrive and grow strong.
What kind of environment do you find yourself living in? Are the people closest to you uplifting or dampening your spirit? This is a perfect time of year to weed out those you are stunting your growth and begin attracting more people who support and encourage you and, in turn, do the same for them.
If we can surround ourselves with supportive and loving family, friends, coworkers, business partners, and home environments imagine what we can all accomplish. It is time to create an environment which allows you to thrive and fulfill your purpose.
Wishing you a year of growth in love, laughter, joy, creativity, adventure, and success.
Love and Light!
