Growth is a spiral process, doubling back on itself, reassessing and regrouping.
(Julia Cameron, 19th century photographer)
Note to Self:
Just because you double back doesn't mean you are starting over. Just because you reassess doesn't mean you were wrong the first time. Just because you regroup doesn't mean you failed.
Standing up strong from your roots is how you stand up at all. Holding in one hand what you have learned and in the other the bud of your future -- and pausing to hold yourself in this moment -- that's how you keep growing.
