I have been in YLD since January and LOVE it. It is like all the books I have been reading wrapped into a system and structure and it has helped me lose 10 kilos so far this year and apply for and be made partner in the accounting firm I work at. What I have also realised is that my friendship group are not the people I really want to be spending time with. We are close from university days, where we drank, partied, dated boys, went to music festivals and too lots of drugs. The friendships are based on letting our hair down. The girls catch up most weekends and drink wine, gossip, talk about fashion and their partners/husbands and kids in a way that is more winge than solve. I have been not going this last month. I just dont want to be up late, drinking, talking about things that just do not interest me. I love them, but I also dont relate to them and I dont want to invest time in maintaining the relationships. But then I am left wondering. Where are my people? Girls who want to catch up for a hike, a coffee, chat about their goals, dreams, challenges with a solution focus? Who want to talk about how to support their kids, love more, give more, serve more? Where do I find my tribe?
Where are my people?

You just told me where they are 😉
Your people are right here in YLD.
Your people are in the coffee shop you go to tomorrow morning.
Your people are hiking on Sunday morning.
Your people are in the meeting at work talking about how to better serve your customer.
Your people are everywhere my friend.
What action will you take tomorrow to meet one person who just may be your kinda person?
Can you do one thing every day that gives you an opportunity to create new connections with people you relate to?
Are you willing to meet 50 people who are NOT your tribe so you can meet number 51 who is?
We can get caught in worry and confusion thinking its necessary.
It isn’t. It is just preventing you from taking action that will require you to put yourself out there and actually tell people who you are, what you love to do, what inspires you.
I met one of my best friends today 6 years ago when at a kid thing when she told me she doesn’t drink and is Buddhist. She taught me to talk to new people and alwasy tell them who I really am, never pretend. Thank goodness she was real because at that time I really wanted to know about how to NOT drink 🙂 and anyone who could medidtate every day was very interesting to me.
Be you. Talk to others. Get out there. Your tribe are looking for you. So much LOVE xx
