If you're not growing you're dying - Evolved Mommy

Earlier this week I was having lunch with one of my dearest friends and she told me she has been offered an amazing work opportunity. She seemed so hesitant, though. It turns out some of the people she currently works with have been a little passively aggressively negative about her move. My guess would be out of jealousy. We all have these people in our lives. You know who they are in yours.

This person whom I love should be so excited about her new opportunity, but because she’s so stinkin’ nice she doesn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.

Someone very wise once told me that people are like trees.

If we’re not growing we’re dying.

When my friend heard this her eyes filled up with tears, and she said, “That’s just what I needed to hear today.”

She is growing.

The negative people in her office have been there for thirty years. They’ll be there until they die. They aren’t growing and if she doesn’t get out neither will she.
