Never stop growing

The other night, I attended @togetherliveevents and the speakers were each asked to share a mantra. No one asked me to share mine, but here I go anyway: Never stop growing. I believe deeply in the importance of growth and change throughout the lifespan. I really think we can’t fully live unless we’re growing. I try hard to be intentional about that growth. There’s a lot of it happening right now in my life. New parenthood will do that for you. I’m just trying to keep up and make sure I’m giving enough sun and water to the things I value most. ⁣
