We can thrive when we are nurtured.


Spring has arrived! With the gentle breeze, blossoming flowers and the anticipation of fresh starts, it’s a season overflowing with reminders to embrace growth and cultivate personal development.


But this year, let’s switch things up a bit. Instead of just urging you to grow where you’re planted, we want to encourage you to thrive where you’re nurtured.

Picture this: You’re a seed planted in the soil of your community, your culture, your own unique experiences. And just like any seed, you need the right conditions to flourish. That means being rooted in spaces and places that feed your soul, that respect your authenticity and that celebrate your growth.

As we settle into spring and a season of growth, let’s talk about shedding. Yes, shedding. It’s about letting go of the things that no longer serve you, whether it’s self-doubt, toxic relationships or old patterns that hold you back. Just like a tree sheds its leaves to make room for new growth, it’s time to release what’s weighing you down.

But shedding is only half the story. Once you’ve cleared the space, it’s time to fill it with goodness. Seek out environments and community that water your spirit, that challenge you to reach new heights and that provide the support you need to thrive. 

Now, let’s dive into relationships—those invaluable bonds that can elevate us or hold us back. Nurture relationships that uplift you, that inspire you and that remind you of your worth. Remember, Upspoken community, you deserve to be surrounded by love, respect and support in every area of your life.

So, this spring, we want to leave you with this reminder: You are worthy of flourishing. You are capable of incredible growth. And you are deserving of a life filled with joy, abundance and fulfillment. Embrace the season of renewal, and let yourself bloom.
