Growth Spurt

I have been trying to get my head wrapped around a lot of things that have happened in the past two weeks. I guess the recurring theme is that people are fallible. We all mess up, we make mistakes, we act out when we feel vulnerable or afraid and we sometimes hurt people that we care about.

But as Maya Angelou says, "Once you know better you do better." I would like to hope that I am continually growing and changing into the person I hope to be.


I try not to make the same mistakes that I've made in the past. Easy to say but hard to do. But I still do. But I am not the same person that I was even three years ago, I know that my heart has been healed and I am stronger for everything that I have experienced and struggled with. And for that I am grateful.

But I still struggle. Yes I am impatient, I sometimes speak my mind to those I care about and don't temper my words with kindness, I have moments of impetuousness.

But I would like to hope that if people say anything about me is that I always try. As hard as it has been. As it continues to be. To be better.

I think that trying is the key. I don't ever want to be complacent and think that I don't have more growing to do.
