Wellness Wednesday #6: Growing

Wellness Wednesday #6: Growing
February 11, 2015 CuteCoco


Here’s my conversation with Maureen every week for our beloved #gowellnessday:

Me: “OMG it’s Tuesday already!”

Maureen: “Yes, I have done my draft (WW)”

Me: “I just realized it’s Tuesday!!”

Maureen: “Don’t panic!”

Me: “OH NOOO” (panic)

Sometimes, it’s the other way around. Both of us are doing our best to nurture and grow this linky for the massive inspirations and motivations that fly around every week from every one of you. We can’t be more thankful for all that, and in between our busy schedule we do comfort each other when one of us falls behind ha ha..


It is one of the best things that happens to me. Well, to almost every human being. Including you, I believe.

The good thing about growing is that you cannot undo it and it is always an ongoing process.

There are times when I feel I am speeding on a fast lane that everything around me goes blurry. In times like these I will hit the brake, make a stop and look back. Not because I dwell with my past but to see how far I have run and be thankful for what I have achieved so far.


Sometimes I find myself laughing at my stupidity, about how childish I used to be. Right now I can proudly say that I have grown a lot. Not only in size (unfortunately) but also in the way I deal with people and in the way I make my decisions.

In the process of me growing, people come and go. Sometimes they come with joy, sometimes they come with a lesson. Whatever it is they give me experiences. You know what the wise man says; experience is the best teacher.

I learn from my past. I learn from people who hurt me. I learn from people who love me. I learn from the bad moments. I learn from the best moments. The past, the hurts, the loves, the moments help me grow into a better person and today I whisper my gratitude for the life I have this far.

  3. What an awesome outlook. We do grow from our pasts and we definitely learn from people who have hurt us as well as people who have loved us. Growing can be exciting or scary, but that’s life, right? Thank you for hosting Wednesday Wellness. I imagine it’s a lot of work but you are creating an awesome community. Have a great day!

      A lot of fun work I must say. It is indeed a pleasure to be able to connect with inspiring people like you Debra!

    Growing is not easy. Not having children allows me to be more carefree because I don’t have little ones depending on my strength to develop themselves.
    However, it still hurts, but just like about our bones, we get over it.
    Thank you girls for the inspiring linkup!
