Growth

Growth is learning how to say no
how to say no more
how to say not you
even when there is no one else there to hold you

Growth is listening to yourself
your inner voice
when it is afraid and confused and feels that something is not right
and holding it, and loving it, and following its message

Growth is feeling your fears, your anxieties
and thanking them
and cherishing them
and then facing them, and surpassing them

Growth is learning to love yourself
to value yourself
to realize all the good you have in you
and to nourish that, without judgment, without apology

Growth is allowing only what feeds you
shedding dead skin
forgiving
and moving forwards

Growth is accepting where you are
where you’ve been
seeing the lessons learned
and being proud of your wins as well as your losses

Growth is life
love
compassion
for others
and yourself
letting go
feeling gratitude for all your experiences
even when they were horrible
because they made you who you are
and you’re beautiful
