Growth (part 2)

As the seed takes hold in the crack of the sidewalk, the growth creates momentum.  But without nutrients--food and water--the sprouted seed dies.  Similarly, if we do not feed the newly created momentum that arises from facing a challenge, we too can wither and die.  Nurturing our growing minds, fostering expansion, and preventing stagnation encourages us to keep learning from our experiences.  In life, we either grow or die, but metaphorically, we can say the same thing about our minds.  Growth is as important to our minds as it is to a living organism, and without proper attention and feeding, we will wither and die in the form of boredom, inertia and lethargy.  How will you feed your growing and expanding mind today?
