Growth. It is a thing that happens to you. It happens to all of us at varying speeds. Growth makes it easier to deal with situations as they present themselves. That is what it feels like to me. An essential add-on of personal value.
I grew, and much like the edelweiss, from the infamous Sound of Music song, I plan on blooming and growing, forever. Hum the tune with me.
It is my first day of work in a new company. I grew from an intern in an advertising agency to the Marketing Specialist of a top tech company. I knew I was growing but now, I am a big girl.
How do I feel about this? Elated. Anxious. Ready. Ready to take on the world and leave my moon prints in this space.
I think about the me from a year ago and I am pleased at my evolution. The me, who placed her personal value in the way others thought. The me, whose voice, although loud, echoed words fed to her subconsciously and delibrately. The me, from which I grew.
She now felt like a big flower. Blooming a blossoming. Her petals held by a stem so solid. A stem strenghtened by; the experiences she had overcome, an impenetrable support system, memories and lessons from the past (filled with not just laughter and happiness but sadness and pain too). More importantly, at the core of this stem were the values that she created for herself. Her rules. Her principles. Her soul.
I am still growing, and I will grow for the rest of my existence.
I am a big flower in bloom.
I will nourish and I will flourish.
Thankful Day 2/365
I am thankful for positive self reflection and introspection.
