Embrace Growth

treeinhand2“The only way that we can live, is if we grow.

The only way that we can grow is if we change.

The only way that we can change is if we learn.

The only way we can learn is if we are exposed.

And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open.

Do it. Throw yourself.”

~ C. JoyBell C., writer

    I have always been fascinated with learning, but not until I read this writing did I ever think of it as throwing myself out into the open. This was very thought provoking for me. Thank you.

    Sarah – So glad this provoked some good thinking for you! I love her language of “throwing yourself out into the open.” It’s such a beautiful way to describe vulnerability which always shows up along the path of change and growth!
