“Don’t go through life, grow through life.” ~Eric Butterworth …
There is so much to be discovered, so much to be enjoyed, and so much to be shared in life, that it would be a shame to simply let it pass us by. Sure, life will continue to happen, regardless of our attitudes or how involved we are in it, but how drab and boring would such a life be?
We have unlimited potential… all we must do is get involved in life. Read books and learn, accomplish some tasks, take up a new and exciting hobby, exercise, participate in healthy discussions with your peers–expand your horizons. Every time we experience life just a little bit more, we come to recognize the value and importance in it. We make ourselves richer. We make our lives richer. We enhance the beauty and potential of our world and everyone in it.
And do not be afraid to explore a little. There is plenty of room for the finer things in life, but we can also explore some of the average beauty that is available to us each day. Being able to live our life to the fullest is exactly what makes it so special.
Spend some time growing today.
Questions to consider:
How often do we concentrate on simply “making it through the day?”
When we expand our horizons to include appreciation for things we might not have noticed before, what happens to our lives?
What are some ways we can actively “grow through life?”

“Isn’t it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive–it’s such an interesting world.” ~Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
