What Does it Mean to Do Life Together as a Tribe—Especially during Trying Times?
It means we are a family. We are a diverse, funky, beautiful family. We all come from exquisitely unique backgrounds and we are all gaining ground on exquisitely unique aspects of our own selves so that we can progress, and create a life of our own choosing. None of us will ever be going through the same thing at the same time—even given similar themes, our own lens and life experiences will shape us differently in terms of how we see the world.
In our online community, it is our responsibility to each other to greet one another with love and understanding. If someone feels and believes differently than you... get curious about why? Set your own self and your own lens aside and ask what does the person in front of you need right now? As a tribe member, how can you objectively support the growth THEY are choosing to focus on? Life paths are fascinating.
To witness someone's story and validate their feelings is the gift that we give here. We give this gift freely and without strings.
If you see a post that you cannot relate to...simply move along...
There are thousands of us and someone else can step up to the plate to witness and affirm.
One of the key commitments to being a good tribe member is to know and honor your own self, your story, and your personal limits. Taking a step back and leaving any given conversation to others in not only good form within a tribe, but it also helps you to stay in a good mental place so you can continue your own growth.
After all, that all is what we are here to do.
Grow. Individually and together, as a tribe.
The caterpillar starts to make her cocoon with zero concept that she is about to hole up and become a butterfly. Seeds burst and disrupt before shooting out of the earth as striking green sprouts. We all go through these intense periods of feeling wacky right before becoming.
This is what growth feels like. While it can be very uncomfortable, it’s truly a beautiful thing.
If you need individual support and a space to completely let it all fly, contact one of our catalysts. That is what we are here for!
In the meantime, love and protect each other's hearts.
I am here for questions, comments, and general good vibes and lovin!
