All About Learning, Growth & Self-Care
True belonging is the spiritual practice of believing in and belonging to yourself so deeply that you can share your most authentic self with the world and find sacredness in both being a part of something and standing alone in the wilderness. True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.Brené Brown
When we talk about lifelong learning, professional development, or personal growth, we often think of improving ourselves. Whether it’s at home or at work, we want to become better at what we’re doing – better people even – to fit in and belong to the world in a deeper, more meaningful way. But this focus on self-evaluation, combined with the pressure to optimize ourselves, can be harmful.
Personal growth is not about changing who you are but about finding the confidence and practical support to be your most authentic self in all areas of life. So that you may share that true self with the world to which you already belong – more than you could possibly realize.

Self-care isn’t a selfish practice. It’s not only about considering our own needs; it’s about recognizing what we need to do for ourselves so that we may then take care of others and love them more authentically. It’s the act of safeguarding our own physical and emotional well-being, particularly during times of stress. Self-care creates a space of kindness in us, in which we may find rest, strength, and love for ourselves and others.
