I am currently undergoing the “studying” phase of personal growth and development. I am reading the book Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert and participating in Oprah’s 10 week class on Eckhart Tolle’s book A New Earth. I have just finished reading the book, The Secret.
I am taking it all in and wondering when will the growth occur? When will the inner peace come? I wake up every day thinking, “Today will surely be the day. The big event will happen today for sure, right?”
I know I’m ready for the new challenge. After all, I am steadily juggling my husband, two children, mother, traveling and major home renovations… What is the world waiting on? Shouldn’t the next big move happen during all this?
Maybe that’s the key to personal growth and development. I don’t get to decide when it happens. You know, give up the control and then viola. Maybe that’s the whole lesson…Well, being the educator that I am, all that I can do is keep studying and hope to be completely prepared when the opportunity to shine arrives.
In light of that, I’m off to read more. You never know, tomorrow might be the big day of development and opportunity.
