Too often, we allow ourselves to get focused on what is behind us, what we have been through or are going through at the present moment, how someone has or is treating us or saying about us, or the environment in which we were brought up in, keep us back from focusing on the right things.

3 More Lessons You’re Better Off Learning Sooner than Later (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 307)


“Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.”
— Andy Rooney

How often have you thought to yourself, I wish I had known this when I was 20 or I wish someone had told me this before I turned 30. There is a deep feeling inside all of us to know and to approach life with a sense of maturity, wisdom, and understanding. We know that our younger life was not as productive as it could have been and so we become aware of the fact that as we age, we must grow and improve — not just grow physically but mentally and emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.

Philippians 3:13 (NLT)
No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead…

Growth is a lifelong process. When we stop growing, we essentially stop living. Growth arrives in many forms and by a plethora of opportunities. If we are blind to those opportunities by the present activities of this very moment, we may never get to live the life we intend to live. Growth is always slow and never easy.
