Welcome to Day 28 of our 31 Days of Embracing Your Divatude Challenge! Today’s challenge is focused on personal growth. Throughout our lives we should be constantly learning and growing – personally and professionally. This continued personal growth helps us to be a better person overall.
If you are new to the challenge, you can catch up here.
Briefly, the month of May is dedicated to focusing on our Divatude – being driven, inspiring, victorious and called to action in our personal and professional lives. As women, different aspects of divatude impact our daily walk at all times. Our focus with this challenge is taking the time to reflect on our daily attitudes and actions and ensuring we are focusing on what will lift us and others around us up.
Improving Your Life Through Personal Growth
Get A Life! You have heard the saying, now put it to use. While you may think it is necessary to work long hours and get a big fat check, if you ask your children if they would rather have lots of toys or see you more, more than likely they will choose you. Cut back on your demanding job and find time to invest in your family. Their values will improve, your relationship will improve and you will go to bed with a smile on your head.
Self help means looking hard at you. While it is not easy to do, you’ll need to face your faults and find ways to improve them. Find out what you dislike about yourself and then work on improving these aspects. Don’t like the way you look? Then change it. Don’t like the attitude that you have? Add things into your life that are worth being happy about.
Time for you. It is also important to spend quality time doing things that you personally enjoy doing. Want to get away for a bit? Then take a walk after dinner and leave your spouse with the kids. A ten minute break from everyone is the time you can use to explore your own self and to learn about who you are and where your life is heading.
When you take the time to learn about yourself and to develop your relationships, your personal growth will allow you to become the person that you want to be.
Today’s challenge is to focus on taking a look at the areas you need growth and improvement. Commit to making those changes and list out ways you will focus on your personal growth – an enrichment course, learning something new, reading a non-fiction book, finding a mentor or accountability partner, etc.

Definitely need to find the time for myself.

Yes! So on point! I cannot stress enough how important it is to have "me" time to my hubby. As crazy as the kids can get sometimes, I just need my time so that I can be the best mommy to them. The wonderful thing is that we all take our "me" time the way that we see fit.
