Growing Up

Growing up means learning to do things you didn’t think you could do.

We’re all growing up, all constantly tackling previously impossible challenges.

And until we succeed, we try things we couldn’t do, and fail.

Learning to enjoy that process–impossible, possible but unsuccessful, successful–is important if you want to keep growing. Don’t enjoy it, and you’ll stay put.

There are things that I didn’t think I could do ten years ago that I’ve done many times; there are things I can’t do now that I’ll have done by next year. And in between, I will fail.

That’s preferable to staying put.

That’s growing up.
