"true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance." This weekend has been a friendcation and so good for the soul. I've been reading Braving The Wilderness and walking the beach. It's been a real mirror for me and has me really thinking deeply about how self acceptance or lack thereof is really holding me back. This next year is going to be a doozy and I need to be the best version of myself first. What characteristics of yourself are hard to accept? I'll start, sometimes I struggle to accept my own power and really harness my best self.
