Your Tribe and making friends
Imagine a tribe of women getting together to empower one another. Sounds epic right? That's what it is like when you have a group of amazing power house females as your friends, supporters, partners and mentors. A tribe is a close nit group sharing in goals, tasks, and helping to take care of one another for the progression of the group. Often you will hear me talk about supporting and empowering others. When we work with each other we are far more powerful than we are by ourselves. No don't get me wrong, there are still some things you will have to do on your own, but what I am talking about is letting go of the need to compete. There are two main forms of competition; healthy and negative competition. Confused? Don't be. Healthy competition is when you work smarter, take action and share your work progressively. Negative competition is full of envy, stress, and can lead to extremely high arrogance levels. Having a positive tribe of successful women will help you to eliminate fear, negativity and jealousy. Why? Because they are set on working together to achieve success for everyone in the group.
Women are natural born leaders and sharers. When we are passionate about something we can't help but to tell our friends and family about. think back to the last thing you shared, was it a movie, skirt, restaurant, or yoga class you took. How easy was it for you to get excited and ant to tell the world about it? That's exactly what having a tribe is all about, sharing. We share in each others accomplishments, failures and even laughable mistakes. Then together we pick back up and get back in the saddle.
What was it like when I first met my ever-growing tribe members and friends?
We are so lucky to have the ability to make friends. I love making friends, getting to know someone and seeing all the ways we are compatible. When I first started gathering my tribe members I remember it like it was yesterday. The woman that changed my life, she is practically my head wife of my tribe. It was on the night of an ex's birthday and this 5'2" power house of a personality woman came marching through the door. The first thing she said to me was, "Oh, you need to dump him and be my friend". At first I was baffled that she said that and of course I didn't listen to her, but we were friends ever since. Now flash forward a few years and she is still by my side helping me through the crazy times of my life. She is the one that taught me about creating a tribe of powerful women.
I have met some of my friends and tribe mates at parties, through jobs, clients, and even through social media. One of my favorite ways I met one of them was when I was at a part several years ago and danced in a huge bookshelf with this cool chick with purple hair. I knew that I was meant to meet her but it wasn't the right time, for we never got each others numbers. Flash forward to a few years later. I was sitting on the bed with one of my best friends, (married to my play big brother), and I was telling her the story of the dancing bookshelf girl. Guess what? It was her! We just sat there laughing for over an hour at the fact that we had been friends at this point for two years and had no idea it was each other from the party. So case in point, the universe will totally hand you your tribe ladies.
Friends are like soul partners that come into our life at the right moments and guide us through life's uncertainties. They help us learn lessons, support and love us unconditionally. Sometimes they are in our lives until we die and sometimes they are only there for a short time to guide us through a rough spot. Either way we are blessed by their friendship.
