Growth that Engages Heart + Mind

Are you a growth-oriented person? Do you thrive knowing you're facing the personal challenges and cultivating your good qualities? 

Being a lifelong learner means you're intentionally curious. There is more understanding and awareness to be found; new discoveries about how you function as a person and how you move in the world. You welcome this kind of learning. Even during times of happiness and stability, you are receptive to exploring what motivates and inspires your mind and heart. Ongoing self-reflection or taking stock of the inner life is important to you.

It can be reinvigorating to look at how you've grown over these last months, and to consciously acknowledge how you've been skillful or brave in tackling the challenges... and embracing the joys. Autumn is a marvelous season for cozying up with your favourite tea or coffee, and slowing down to reflect. Let yourself breathe easy and see what comes to mind with these questions. Have a journal or iPad nearby so you can write your thoughts down. Happy pondering!

Consider:

How has your mind grown recently? (Maybe you're more organized; can see a variety of perspectives; or have honed a skill like healthy cooking). Pause and be proud of yourself! Enjoy the feeling of success.

How has your heart expanded? (Maybe you have more space to love yourself; greater patience with changed plans; or newfound compassion for a difficult person in your life).

Now it's time to find a way of celebrating this growth that's been named. Do something simple and enjoyable, like telling your best friend or dancing to some uplifting music.
