What Does Showing Up Mean?

Showing Up is another way of saying loving yourself, having self-compassion and understanding how to take care of your own needs. It’s similar to the way you show up for your family, friends, and others, but this time the focus is you.


The Showing Up Project's mission is to encourage women of color and other underrepresented communities to embark on their journey of self-care and self-discovery by spending more time in nature.

It’s important to mention that for some, Showing Up for yourself may feel selfish or uncomfortable at first. You may feel that there are too many responsibilities and obligations that you are responsible for, which is why its important to show up for yourself in small ways at first.
