Your Tribe Is Your Vibe
Tribe- A group of people, often of related families, who live in the same area and share the same language, culture and history, especially those who do not live in towns or cities.
The weekend is only hours from being over and a new week is on the horizon and I have a wonderful feeling within me. I should feel exhausted and tired, yet I am invigorated and enlivened after spending time with 8 other small business owners and artistic entrepreneurs. Enriching is the one word I can find to describe the interactions and time spent with these good people.
The world is small, very small. We meet people in unsuspecting places and then come round full circle to meet them again. In these encounters we are enriched by their experience, their individual drive to succeed. I met this collective of people from volunteering, participating in farmer’s market, friends of friend’s or family of friend’s. Several from different backgrounds and a few very similar workplace experience and connections.
We were a tribe for close at 14 hours as we set up our wares, shared stories, garnered knowledge from one another. We were doing what tribes do, being one. I learned a lot in such a short time and I am thankful for our brief gathering.
We may have parted ways but I feel confident we will gather together again. Life is not meant to be done alone. Surround yourself with people who add value to your life and challenge you to be greater than you were the day before.
Your tribe is your vibe.
