Follow the Path of Growth to Becoming Yourself
By Sara Jane
Life is a journey with the path laid out in front of us with all its twists and turns, ups and downs.
The landscape will change, sometimes you may feel as if you are travelling through a wilderness, at others a crowded city or sailing the wide open oceans and every step brings you closer to becoming yourself.
Life isn’t for sitting still and just watching the world go by it is about living, experiencing, growing into who you are.
I suggest looking back at your life so far, look at all the experiences you have had.
Some have been hard and hurt a lot, the downs, some have been great fun and have felt really rewarding, the ups and others have felt difficult, the twists and turns.
The rollercoaster of life.
Our greatest growth comes in the challenging times when the path has difficult terrain to traverse.
It is only with hindsight that we can see the true gift of these times, realising that the action we have taken have changed our lives completely.
We have to take the action ourselves if we wish to have any control over our lives.
Do you know who you are?
If you do, what were the circumstances that lead you to open to who you are?
If you don’t, then what is holding you back from finding yourself?
We are the only one who can do it for us, no one else can do it for you.
Very briefly, I was in a marriage I shouldn’t have been in, I felt stuck.
Then the dentist broke my jaw whilst extracting a wisdom tooth (quite ironic that really) resulting in 6 months of pain and sleepless nights.
When you are that exhausted something has to give and for me that included being a people pleaser and my marriage.
Then the company I was working for got taken over and we were all going to be made redundant.
Was all this a down or was it in fact an up.
By taking the action of leaving my marriage, life started to move, I took the opportunity to relocate, to start a new life and truthfully, I haven’t looked back, other than to feel blessed.
That was the beginning of my growth, what was the beginning of yours?
In the process of all the changes, decision making and action, I found me.
I don’t see it as people changing, it is about growing, following your life path to find yourself and continuing to grow with every new experience that comes your way.
