How true is this? Think about it. What you put out into the world is exactly what you will receive. If you are a grumpy-dumpy-cynical human being, then you will inevitably draw the same kind of people in. Then, you will just stare and insult each other all day every day. Karma, right?
Think about growing up. Your friends were those that liked the same things as you, be it sports, drawing, talking, etc. Why would being a grown up be any different? Now, as an adult, I do have an array of friends. I am blessed to have this. I have friends and aquaintances who all serve certain purposes in my life. All of them are great and fill my soul with what it needs. For these people, I am grateful.
Now, onto my tribe. I love my tribe. I respect my tribe. I NEED my tribe! As a woman who has a hard time asking for help, especially when it comes to my children (mommy guilt, what?), I need this tribe of woman for my sanity more than anything. They should be called my "sanity savers." I truly believe that by being open minded, non-judgmetal, and less cynical has brought to me my tribe of people. I've worked hard at it. I'm still working. Aren't we all? Nobody is perfect. Sometimes a great vent or gossip session feels good and then you move on about your life.
Listen, I'm in my mid-thirties. I definitely know there was a time in my life when I was with some others who weren't the best to feed my soul. It's truly not that they are bad people at all! It's just that our vibes didn't mesh. I sincerely wish "the others" the best in life; happiness, fulfillment, and grace. Now, I'm talking about friends and aquaintances through every stage in my life- not just one. So, don't go scratching your head wondering if I've written you off! Chances are, you are still fondly in my mind and memories, and often thought of warmly, with affection.
I wish you all, beautiful bloggies, a life in which you can find your tribe. Think about the type of people you want to attract, and send out those vibes. Just like in 'Field of Dreams,' "If you build it, they will come."
"People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost."
p.s. for those of you who think I've fallen off my rocker. I may have! I'm holding on by a toe. It's still holding onto bad and inappropriate jokes, impatience, and sarcasm pretty damn good.
