In our post about Ukrainian Easter eggs, we talked about how, through the ages and across cultures, the egg has served as a popular springtime symbol, representing fertility, growth and rebirth. With powerful visual reminders in the form of budding trees and bright flowers, it’s logical that many of us find ourselves focused on personal growth and renewal (in addition to spring cleaning!) during this time as well. Here’s what a few others have had to say on the subject…
Nature often holds up a mirror so we can see more clearly the ongoing processes
of growth, renewal, and transformation in our lives.
If we’re growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone.
You’ve got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was.
Life is Change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.
All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous, unpremeditated act
without benefit of experience.
Do you want my one-word secret of happiness? It’s growth—mental, financial, you name it.
Harold S. Geneen
Life is a process. We are a process. The universe is a process.
Anne Wilson Schaef
The most important thing to remember is this:
To be ready at any moment to give up what you are for what you might become.
W. E. B. Du Bois
If you would have a lovely garden,
you should live a lovely life
Why stay we on the earth except to grow?
Don’t go through life, grow through life
If the grass on the other side of the fence appears greener…
it must be all the fertilizer they are using.
Whether you tend a garden or not,
you are the gardener of your own being, the seed of your destiny
The Findhorn Community
Between stimulus and response there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
Viktor E. Frankl
We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Shutting off the thought process is not rejuvenating;
the mind is like a car battery—it recharges by running.
Change is growth. For me it has been a very spiritual and musical rebirth.
So long as a person is capable of self-renewal they are a living being.
