A Tape Measure for Growth

by Sarah Devika Sumnauth


Sometimes in life despite your best intentions, things don’t go your way. Its embarrassing, frustrating and upsetting. But, It’s actually also a good thing. Why? Because it gives you a tape measure to mark your development against. Kind of like when you’re a kid and you measure yourself excitedly to see that you’ve grown by a whole inch since last month! Well the same theory applies here too.

Today was a particularly rough day and despite all of the trials, and low moments, I didn’t let that break me. No siree bob! I kept on going neither expecting success nor failure, just living in the moment and taking stock as I went. What more can you truly ask of yourself?

I hope for one thing that in future I can be more diligent about checking times and dates, but other than that, I semi-look forward to the next time a day like today rolls around. We will measure again then.

I hope you all had a fantastic week and even though its drizzle-snowing out there, have an awesome weekend too.

With nothing but love,

Sarah
