Welcome to the April 2022 issue of Living. Loving. Growing. online magazine!

I’ve spent the first few months of this year digging around in what I like to call “The Growing Part,” and I’m ready to share some of that journey.

In the past, my friends and I have sympathetically referred to this as the part of life that gets forced upon us while we’re navigating unexpected hardship. You know – hurricanes, pandemics, house fires, etc.

However, lately I’ve found myself seeking out the growth for its own sake. The process can be uncomfortable, challenging, and downright humbling at times, but I also find myself using words like “empowering” and “freeing.”

Most notably, it’s made me feel “ready.” More than ever before, I feel prepared to take the big steps necessary to move in the direction of my dreams and better able to handle any hurdles that may pop up along the way.

So now I say, “Here’s to The Growing Part!”

Wishing you all the best,
Erin Hart
