Growth is a Process

You do not just wake up and become a butterfly. Growth is a process

~ Rupi Kaur

The things we want and yet the work to get them is so daunting. There are so many stories from the last year about growth, 2020 was very interesting to say it mildly, but it was ripe for growth.

I think about what I was doing this time last year. The company I work for had just moved to an office down in Tower District. I saw this as an opportunity to get back on my bike and start riding. I was somewhat dissapointed when we had to move to remote work because of COVID. I need to have challenges to motivate me.

I did however start riding around this time last year. I was not in cycling shape. I had not been on my bike for 5 years. I decided to be consistent and ride on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Little by little I got myself in shape for riding. There were more than enough times where I just wanted to stay inside and sit on the couch. I found some people that like to cycle. Riding with others is such a treat. It allows for accountability for me. Last year I rode my bike for 1,200 miles. Yesterday I got my longest ride in so far, 45 miles. This is the process of growth. I don’t know if I would call myself a butterfly but I getting there.

When you look back at this last year where did you grow. What did that process look like?

    I have began to take inventory of my mental being and opened up that avenue to make personal gains and move forward in 2021.

I can't hear you?
