The theme of Black History Month in the U.S. this year focuses on 'health and wellness'; a chance to celebrate and educate about the sacrifices, innovations and contributions of those who have made a difference in all our lives. This includes the writers, poets and storytellers who share their words of truth, guidance and love with the world.
Our self-worth is something we should nurture and protect. Maintaining boundaries that reflect our authentic selves can ensure we are surrounded by people that foster genuine connections based on nurturing reciprocity.
Aiming to live authentically helps create a sense of purpose and fulfillment that's rooted in recognizing our self-worth. It's an evolving process throughout our life's journey deeply connected to what resonates most within our principles, responsibilities, boundaries, words and actions.
