Happy Monday! Today's Monday Mantra is, The path of growth is not a straight line.

We live in a goal-driven culture that favors tangible results that we expect to be delivered in an instant. When we decide we want something we can’t get it fast enough, seeking the shortest path from where we are to where we want to be. We forget that life rarely unfolds in a straight line, and that the Universe provides the life lessons we need only when we are ready for them. Our life often invites detours onto the path we are taking, requiring us to veer into another direction, however, although we can’t see it, they’re not detours at all. Instead, they are part of the path we must take in order to grow and gain the lessons we need to be ready for what life has in store for us. Rather than fighting where you are and comparing it to where you want to be, allow yourself to be an open vessel to all that the Universe is preparing you for.
