I hope your pride month is off to a joyous start.
A large inspiration for Liberate came from seeing my loved ones, who I viewed as magical unicorns, feel doubt, practice negative self-talk, and think that nothing they ever did was good enough.
I knew we all could benefit from feeling more confident, compassionate, and loving, toward ourselves and others. What I was struggling with was how to wrap all of these skills up into one “mental muscle” within our curriculum.
Then it hit me – the muscle is pride.
Our pride muscle encourages us to celebrate our successes, appreciate our beauty, work, and effort, and lift others up simultaneously. The muscle helps us recognize the good in everyone.
A key difference I wanted to highlight is this: being PROUD of yourself is not bragging. You have spent however many years on this earth dedicating yourself to self-development, learning, and absorbing all that the world has to offer, and you are better for it!
When we celebrate ourselves and others we all feel empowered to keep going and keep growing on our unique and special paths.
We can be a masterpiece and a work in progress at the same time.
I am proud of the welcoming community we have at Liberate where all human beings have a place to feel supported and loved, always.
I am proud of the movement we’re collectively creating to mainstream mental fitness.
And I am so proud of you for showing up for yourself today and every day.
What are you proud of?
With love and light, Liv
