Cultivating self-acceptance while focusing on personal growth has been a tenet of well-being since the time of Aristotle in Ancient Greece. And it is just as, if not more, relevant for us today.

Being truly ok with who you are in this present moment allows you to be fully-aware and appreciative of the life you are living. Having the drive to evolve and improve gives your life purpose. Together, this kind of presence and purpose are a powerful force that allows you to enjoy a life of meaning as defined by you.

A sweet spot is created when we are at peace with who and where we are right now whilst also wanting to grow and improve.
