📚 Here are my key takeaways from Megan's book and our conversation:

1️⃣ Belonging takes effort: Just like most things in life, belonging isn't just handed to you. It requires actively investing in relationships, forming friendships, and being present both mentally and physically. Building authentic connections means engaging in active listening, asking questions, and showing genuine interest in others.

2️⃣ Cherish your support network: In a life filled with constant movement, having a few friends who provide a space of unconditional vulnerability is invaluable. Surround yourself with people who allow you to be your true self without judgment, who support you in your broken places, and help hold your broken heart. These authentic connections are built through mutual sharing and require both giving and receiving.

3️⃣ Embrace the present: It's easy to get caught up in nostalgia for the past or daydreaming about future destinations. However, true belonging takes time and intentionality. Don't wait for the "perfect" time or place to feel a sense of belonging. Instead, reflect on how you can be present in your current community and make the most of the connections and opportunities around you.

🌟 Remember, belonging is an ongoing journey, and it's different for everyone. Whether you're a seasoned expatriate, a digital nomad, or simply navigating new environments, I hope these insights resonate with you.
