Do you ever have weeks where the same word seems to pop up every other moment?  Not only in your own mind but coming from the mouths of people around you.  

The word “belong” has been popping up over and over and over again for the past few weeks.  I watched a video yesterday which once again spoke about humans irrespective of age, nationality, etc all want to feel like they belong.  I’m sure you agree.  How many times have you started a new job only to find out that you don’t belong?  There are many examples I can list, of that I am certain.

Over the weekend, a friend of mine was speaking about living in a different country when she was in her .20’s She continued to talk about feeling that she did not belong.  I found myself relating to her feelings more than I realized.

We all need to feel like we belong whether this in a workplace, relationship, or new city/country.

Have you found out where you belong?  I hope so.
