Growth is the result of responding to change in a positive way.
Many of the things in which we face are not fun.
We all go through hardships, trouble and calamity.
This world is full of adversity and difficult situations.
We must look at each adversity as an opportunity for growth.
You may have had a situation in your own life where you thought that it was all a big waste of time, and energy.
You may be questioning why you ever had to go through what you did.
Well, for every adversity that you go through, there is always the seed of equal or greater benefit.
A seed has to be crushed and broken in the ground before it can begin to grow.
If you have been crushed lately by someone or something, it's time to GROW.
It's time to look for a way to respond positively to this situation.
It may not be easy, but it must be done.
Too many people spend too much time wallowing, and not moving on.
Hold your head high. Rise above the situation.
A new day is dawning. Look forward to a better time.
You have done your best. Forget the rest.
This is growth.
We struggle, we learn, we overcome.

A NEW ENDING
No one can go back and make a brand new start.
Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
There isn't promise of days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain,
but can promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.
Disappointments are like road bumps, they slow you down a bit but you enjoy the smooth road afterwards.
Don't stay on the bumps too long. Move on!
When you feel down because you didn't get what you want, just sit tight, and be happy.
There's a purpose to life's events, to teach you how to laugh more or not to cry too hard.
You can't make someone love you, all you can do is be someone who can be loved, and the rest is up to the person to realize your worth.
It's better to lose your pride to the one you love, than to lose the one you love because of pride.
We spend too much time looking for the right person to love or finding fault with those we already love, when instead we should be perfecting the love we give.
Never abandon an old friend.
You will never find one who can take his place. Friendship is like wine, it gets better as it grows older.
