Grow Through What You Go Through

Good Morning Subscribers,

It’s time to grow up and glow up!

Job loss, breakups, family problems …you name it. We’re all going through something. As a child, I always envisioned my adult life as BOMB.COM. Living in New York City with my dream job with a Biggie inspired mindset ..sipping champagne when I’m thirsty. Then I grew up and realized that adulthood doesn’t always taste like cotton candy and feel like a walk on the beach.

Life without trials and tribulations just doesn’t exist. Struggle is inevitable. I’ve had moments where I felt like I wanted to drop off the face of the earth. Hey, we’re all human. I also always have come to Jesus moments when I realize it doesn’t end here.

It’s not about getting knocked down, it’s about getting back up. It’s important to take everything as a life lesson and realize that the pivotal part of growing is learning from your downfalls. Growing and then glowing is all part of the process.

 Things are not always going to go as planned. The key is figuring out how to move forward with your alternate path toward success. Aaliyah said it best, if at first you don’t succeed dust yourself off and try again.

Growing Through Life

This week our own Nucleus team member, Shayma Sulaiman, will share this week's message:

When I am ________ years old I want to have this goal accomplished.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to be at a certain place in life by a specific age. Goals are important and you have to set them in order to attain something of greater value. Rarely does anyone achieve greatness without putting in work. Just be aware if it doesn't happen by that specific age DO NOT lose faith and give up. Try, try, and try again. Everyone has their own path it may not be exactly the same as the person next to you, and that's ok. There's only one you so put your best foot forward and never give up. Small steps are key when you have a goal to reach.

Don't get stuck in a rut of simply going through life. Seek new experiences, instill in your mind that you want to seek a new adventure at least once a week. Whether it be trying a new restaurant, getting involved in a local organization or joining a local kickball team you must put yourself out there. Also, never get discouraged and always use a set back as a set up for a comeback and grow through life!

Have you found your purpose in life? If not, keep seeking your purpose. I leave you with this powerful quote below:

If you want something you have never had, you must be willing to do something you have never done.

-Thomas Jefferson
