If you plant a Chinese bamboo seed, it will sit in the ground for five years and appear to not be making any changes. Then, over a six-week period, it will grow 90 feet. So, how long does it take bamboo to grow? 5 years or 6 weeks? My answer is 5 years. Change in us happens much the same way. We take in information. Mull the information over in our heads. Try out a few new behaviors, choices, or responses. Start putting new routines in place. And, to the outside observer, not a lot seems to be changing. Then, suddenly, the pieces fall into place. New, positive choices and behaviors are suddenly easier and more consistent. Outside observers start to notice changes but none of these changes are possible without the previous, unnoticed work. We must lay the foundation to allow for change.

…BEHIND THE NAME
Bamboo Nutrition was created to remind others that change takes time.
A lot happens underneath the surface that is easy to overlook. With the story of bamboo and how long it takes to grow, I want to remind my clients that any change takes time. If obvious changes are not seen externally, it does not mean that large changes are not taking place internally.
Everyone’s journey looks different. Planting one seed does not always grow the same flower.
