Find Your Tribe Gorgeous
As we travel through life we accumulate various friends and acquaintances through circumstances. A few lifelong friends from high school, work colleagues, wives of your husband’s friends, school Mums, friends of friends, team mates from the sport you play, etc. Sure, most of them are probably nice, kind even, but are they your tribe? Are they a community that lights you up and ‘gets’ you? A place where you belong and feel you can be openly authentically YOU?
I am sure you have heard people talking about ‘finding their tribe’. It’s certainly not a new concept, but it is something we are craving more and more. In an era where we are more technologically connected than ever, yet so much more physically and emotionally disconnected, we all want to find our tribe, and love them hard. But, who is your tribe? And, how will you know when you find them? They are great questions, and the answer is simply: you will just know!
To me, a tribe is a group of like-minded beautiful souls that empower, encourage and inspire you. They support you and hold space for you when you just can’t. They not only accept, but love you for everything you are. They are relatable – the resonance is mutual. Authenticity lights them up. They light you up.
So how do we find them? Just let your gorgeous self shine beautiful. Be confident at being you. Drop the façade, the expectations, the fear. Just be you and they will come. And if you can’t wait, or don’t want to, seek them out. Online communities are a great place to start, particularly if you don’t know where to turn locally. For example, there are Facebook groups for everything – journaling fanatics, hula hooping, wild women, bloggers, artists, heart centred entrepreneurs, animal lovers etc. Find a group that makes your heart sing and introduce yourself. You already know you have something in common with the people in these groups, and who knows what will come next!
Put out the vibe you want to attract. Be open to what may come. Be genuine and speak your truth. Find your tribe, and love them hard.
