All About Personal 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
Longing for a positive change in your life that doesn’t require you to deny who you are or neglect your own needs? You have come to the right place!
When we talk about personal growth and development, we often think of it as improving ourselves or becoming a better person in order 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 better ourselves, can be rather harmful to the soul. Personal growth is not about changing who you are, but about finding the confidence and practical support to be your most authentic self 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.

The concept of spiritual growth has no precise definition. Some use it interchangeably with the development of increased self-awareness or higher levels of consciousness occurring when the soul is connected to a Higher Power, however that Power may be defined. For others, spiritual growth is part of a faith journey, rooted in a particular faith tradition or denomination. In both cases, it involves a transformation of the human soul, made possible by the grace of something greater than ourselves.
