I am not the same person from five years ago, five months ago, five days ago, heck even five minutes ago. Not one of us is.
Some of the changes that occur in us are immediately recognizable, like that break through moment of clarity where suddenly everything comes sharply into focus. Most changes though are subtle; you don’t even fully realize they have happened until years later. Some lessons are learned incredibly fast, and others take years to fully manifest their message. Whatever the magnitude of change, the important thing to remember is that change is good and personal growth is imperative. Also, you continue to grow even when you aren’t consciously aware of the advancement taking place.
Take some time today to reflect on the changes that have occurred in your own life. There are probably many that you haven’t even yet recognized. Be proud of your growth and how far you have come.
