Small Steps, Big Adventure!

My son is walking today! And it seems timely for new beginnings in the new year. I remember an old poem I wrote sometime back when I was also launching out on my own to new horizons, taking blind steps of faith…

When do we grow?
We grow through challenge
Through change
We grow when we are plucked up
Out of our comfort zone
And forced to find ourselves.
We grow when others
Are not there to nurture us
We find our own limitations
And then we grow past them.
We build resistance
To the storms,
We weather the rain,
The cold,
The heat
The extreme Situations.
When do we grow?
We grow when we are not stunted
By comforts
When we are not held back by fear
We grow only when we allow those fears to propel us forward.
