Ugh. Change is the bane of life—as much as we want things to stay the same . . . well, they just don’t. For this reason our theme this month is Embracing Change, and with that theme, today we delve into Embracing Personal Growth. Sounds pretty heavy, huh? Let’s spritz on some Infinite Collection fine fragrance and dig in!
What is Personal Growth?
Personal growth sounds really daunting, but does self-growth? Well, it’s the same thing! Personal growth, or self-growth, is the pursuit of growth and self-evolution. It’s the desire to learn about yourself, to acquire more tools in your toolbelt for better communication, empathy, patience, understanding of yourself, the world, and your magnificent place within its vastness.
Why do I want it?
As we grow and get a better understanding of ourselves, we become more comfortable with change. It might still be scary, yes, but as we experience change in our lives with better tools, more wisdom, more patience, a deeper ability to reflect, we are able to find acceptance more easily of the change that we experience, whether that be the changing seasons, a change in our travel plans, or the change in a close relationship.
How can I get some in my life?
A great way to start is with a powerful tool like a mantra, and we’ve got the perfect one for you today: I Commit To Continuous Personal Growth. Look in the mirror and say it, repeat it throughout your day, meditate on it as you drift off to sleep.
Next, exercise your brain. Learn, read, then read some more! After that, try something new. Maybe a new restaurant, or a new sport, maybe a new way to work, or a tea instead of a coffee. Whatever it is, it doesn’t have to be anything extreme, baby steps are just as impactful because YOU’RE making the effort to grow an shift your paradigm, and that’s not easy!
Change is inevitable and can also feel really scary. While we can’t stop it from happening, we can take action to lessen the stress and anxiety that change can cause. By adopting a growth mindset and actively seeking personal growth, change can turn out to be not so daunting after all. So, spritz on your fav Infinite Collection fine fragrance, embrace the change ahead and know that you’ve got the power within you to resiliently grow and become the person you want to be!
