From the Heart ]
I was recently reminded that if we are not growing and connecting with those around us, we become stagnant. When this happens, that stagnant poison convinces us we have nothing left to give--nothing left to accomplish.
One of my recent trips to New York, I checked into the hotel and the attendant told me they were featuring a 100-year-old piano player. "Wow!" I said. "Is he still good?!"
She smiled and said, "Profoundly good!"
What an encouragement! That's how I want to remain as long as I'm in this world: fostering my
growth mindset not just for my own positive mental health, but striving to remain significant and useful for those around me!
As I age, it might be easy to take on a fixed mindset; wake up each day, understand my aging state, complain about my ailments, and see only the added limitations they provide.
My prayer for myself, and for you, is to
instill and foster a growth mindset for all areas of life and that our eyes remain open to the faithfulness and blessings God continues to provide. It's my hope we all remain, "profoundly good!" -TB
