I am the luckiest O.W.L in the world and am so grateful for my strong tribe. You know you're tribe, right?! Those women around you who raise you up, empower and inspire you and make you feel like you are the best in the world. I'm genuinely so grateful.
It's not about 'picking me up' when I'm down or having a bad day. It is the absolute joy they bring to me in the smallest and biggest of ways. Having a belly laugh with my tribe just brings me back to myself and I love them for it. It's the fact too, that they will call me on my behaviour or unhelpful mindsets and make me accountable for what I do. It's just glorious. I mean damn, sometimes it is confronting (e.g. "your hair looks shit today" or "do you really think you should say that out loud?") and that isn't always fun, but that is where the growth is. In having people hold you to account for your benefit, not for theirs.
God we have great times too, I mean every day there is always some sort of laugh and it is so good for the soul. To have a great tribe, you have to put in the energy too. It doesn't happen without the effort. It's such a small effort for such a great reward and I couldn't be more grateful.
So if life has got you by the hair and you haven't made time for your tribe lately, why not give them a call and organise a date? Reconnect and do your mind and heart the favour of being around other outstanding women. xx
