Growth can be inconvenience
Growth can be leaving your comfort zone
Growth can be leaving your friends and loved ones
Growth can involve letting go of your best party clothes, because you have outgrown them
But growth is life
Growth is pride
Growth is refreshing
Growth is attractive
Everyone loves associating with growth, I will grow and live with its “issues’.

Yes there are issues associated with growth. The first hurdle my daughter battled was swallowing. Yesterday my wife told me what she read in a nursing newsletter. Babies bring out their tongue to latch on breast, this is the same habit they use to suck feeding bottles. But when it comes to spoon feeding, it is a different ball game, the tongue is meant to take back seat and let the gum/teeth do the magic – I can see you are checking out how you take in food/chew.
This is a habit my baby girl is trying to learn.

Another issue was her bowel movement, she did not poo for the first 48hours of having solids. With persistence and lots of water her digestive system “regularised’.

Growth is work, growth is learning new things. Growth may require you to make new friends and possibly drop old friends. Growth involves developing new habits and learning new “fun/toys’. But any form of growth that makes you worse or put you on the negative side of life is Cancer. Cancer is also a form of growth; negative growth.

Cancer begins when genetic changes interfere cells regeneration, Cells start to grow uncontrollably. These cells may form a mass called a tumor. A tumor can be cancerous or benign. A cancerous tumor is malignant, meaning it can grow and spread to other parts of the body. A benign tumor means the tumor can grow but will not spread.

What is the direction of your growth?
