That's why we've made October the official “Pursue Growth & Learning” month here at Nurturing Wisdom. To lead us off, here are some words from Pari on what that value means to her:
I bet "Pursue growth and learning" for a lot of people brings up images of taking classes, maybe going back to graduate school, or reading as many books as possible.
To me, "Pursue growth and learning" is a mindset. I am a person who loves to grow, improve, and challenge myself. Yes, I read books and enjoy taking classes, but there is so much more to it than that! On a daily basis, I take the time to reflect on my day. Did I have a good day? Why? Why not? What do I wish went differently today? What did I learn today?
Taking the time each day to do this has accelerated my learning, but most importantly, it's accelerated my happiness in life. By constantly reflecting and learning from my own experiences, I've been able to grow as a person and enjoy my life. Every year of my life is better than the year before.
So for me, "Pursue growth and learning" = "Pursue happiness."
