“The difference between ‘fitting in’ and belonging is that fitting in, by its very definition, is to parcel off our wholeness in exchange for acceptance…”
–– Toko-pa Turner
What if, for this new year, we commit to showing up as who we are wherever we are?
It’s not for everyone. It takes courage, commitment, and support. We can be more in alignment with our true self. For some, that doesn’t make sense, for others, it’s the only thing that makes sense.
As we enter this season of celebration and hopefully reflection, I offer you the possibility of deep self-awareness as a path to living an authentic life. When we explore what matters most and what we are naturally inclined to contribute, the potential becomes liberating ourselves from social conditioning and the confinement of fitting in.
“The reason they want you to fit in is that once you do, they can ignore you.”
–– Seth Godin
Wishing you all a blessed holiday season and a new year of living into your truth.
