Growth and Expansion

Maybe sometimes you have to go backward to move forward?

I’m growing and expanding my saying ‘no’ characteristic and I wonder if moving backward is moving forward. I wonder if I’m more aware of my will power and discipline as I grow than I was before. Am I feeling that I’m moving backward away from my goal, instead of feeling that I’m moving forward to my goal, where I want to be, because I’ve grown?

Gratitude and appreciation

There is a balance to enjoy the journey in the want and the desire to achieve your vision, your goals, and your growth. Your want and desire are continually growing and expanding with you.

In the gratitude, in appreciating what is, for what you’ve accomplished you grow and expand. Having gratitude and appreciation for your life experiences – who you’re being, for what you’re doing, for how you’re living, and why you’re becoming who you want to be doing what you want to do and living how you want to live – guide you to thinking about your vision and goals.

When you are thinking about your vision and goals, you are open to growth and expansion. Earl Nightingale said in the ‘The Strangest Secret’, “It stands to reason that a person who is thinking about a concrete and worthwhile goal is going to reach it, because that’s what he’s thinking about. And we become what we think about.” As we become who we want to be, doing what we want to do and living how we want to live – an expanded desire or a new desire is born.


As you reach goals and visions, as you experience your life journey, you grow and as you grow your perception changes. A feeling of moving backward to move forward is a part of growth and expansion, its feeling the natural ebb and flow of growth. You realize your want and desire, you change and grow to achieve your want and desire, and you continue to grow expanding your wants and desires into a bigger want and a new bigger desire from your new perspective.


“We are always becoming, we are always creating! Today I am more than I was yesterday, and tomorrow I am more than I am today. I have clear values and definite goals for who I want to BE, what I want to DO and how I want to LIVE.”
~Erin Marie Barry
