“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” ―Carl Jung
TL;DR: Beyond Self Improvement is a free weekly newsletter on life after self-perfection. It is a community for open and honest conversation for those wanting to live life as it is rather than how it was supposed to be.
For many, self-improvement is seen as the ultimate in personal growth.
But more often than not, we use it to judge ourselves and reinforce the belief that we are not enough.
What starts with good intentions becomes something we think we should do, a lifelong project to find wholeness by fixing all our flaws.
The illusory promise of the perfect self sets us up for great striving and struggle to satisfy a demanding ego.
But despite all of our efforts, we end up in the same place, only more restless, anxious, and dissatisfied.
What if I told you there is nothing wrong with you and nothing to fix or improve and that you are already whole and complete, just as you are?
Would you believe me? Would you be willing to stop trying to mold yourself and the world in your image and start accepting and enjoying yourself and life as it is?
This newsletter will attempt to answer this question…with a dash of humor.
Looking forward to you joining me on this mad, beautiful, and messy adventure we call life. And whatever is beautiful, meaningful, and brings you happiness, may it be yours throughout 2023
