GROW: Free Write Day 17




What do you want to be when you grow up?


It’s a commonly-asked question. Children have the best answers, don’t they?


What did YOU want to be when you grew up?


The older I get, the more I realize I never really reach a point when growth ends. Grow up? Of course there’s a time when we become “grown ups”, but even then growth doesn’t end.


As long as life keeps us moving forward, we keep growing


. . . but the health of the “plant” depends greatly on our choices.


What am I still learning today—at age 57?



Be kind.

Be honest with myself.

Admit my mistakes, my faults, to myself—and others, when necessary.

Give others the benefit of the doubt.

Lighten up.

Laugh more.

Love my neighbors—and my family—as I’ve been loved.




What are you trying to learn today . . . so you keep growing?
