Growing is a word that we are all too familiar with. We all hear it as were going through life from our elders, we often fantasize and think about who and what well grow to be. I had a conversation with an older lady while waiting for the D train to get to work. During the conversation she looks at me and says: “you just grow honey, thats what life is about, growing in every aspect that YOU, listen to me, That YOU want to grow, not anyone elses.” For some odd reason this hit me like a ton of bricks.
So later on at work, bored as hell, i typed “Growing” into google and i got two interesting definitions: 1) (of a living thing) undergo natural development by increasing in size and changing physically; progress to maturity AND 2 )become larger or greater over a period of time; increase. I read both definitions and realized that both describe life for me (and many others) right now. Do i wanna grow as in getting older by nature, wiser by taking risks or do i want to be greater than what i am right now? become someone that i thought i could never become?. Ahh the throes of being a young adult -___-.
So i want to challenge you guys to do something, ask yourself how do you want to grow? where do you want to grow and what you want to grow? because at the end of the day it is happening regardless remember time still passes if you act or if you don’t.
p.s.- I know i suck at writing but i know youll get the point.
