Find Your Tribe

They always say “Birds of a Feather”…you know the rest.

And it’s partially true. But what I have realized is that it’s the things that are different about you that bring the synergy.

Some people like to have a yes man around them and that’s fine. Problem is, you never learn and you never grow.

Have you found your tribe?

That group of people who are positive, uplifting, encouraging, and well- the kind of people who will call you on your shit.

I’m at the point in my life where I like to be called on my shit.  I’m a big girl. I can stand to hear the word no from time to time. I need someone to tell me that I’m going overboard and I’m taking something a little too far.

The women in my tribe call me on mine, accept me for who I am, and encourage me to be better tomorrow than I am today.

And in the same breath that they do this for me, I can do the same for them. Trust me, we don’t all like the same things and Lord knows I need people around me who are way less flighty than I tend to be. But that’s the kind of balance that I like in my world. Suits me just fine.

Have you found your tribe?

I don’t think that you have to search far. But you do have to be aware of the type of people you allow in your inner circle. The people closest to you speak volumes about how you perceive yourself.

Sometimes that tribe changes. There are times that the door needs to be opened to have an open enrollment and likewise also a release of those already in the circle that no longer belong.  A good purge is always in order. Inventory is always necessary.

Have you found your tribe?
