There are so many things to be grateful for in life (not just around thanksgiving). For example, I am thankful for this coffee I am drinking (that I had to borrow from my roommate) even if it is not Starbucks coffee. People who know me reading this will laugh because I am a huge coffee lover and it has taken me years to find that perfect cup and I never drink Folgers. Anyway, when I write I have ADD because I have so many thoughts to go around. BUT the most important thing I am grateful for is that I am finding my tribe. I recently went on a Christian Women’s Retreat, and no, it is not where a bunch of women sit around, knit, and recite bible verses (lol I just pictured us doing that and died of laughter). SO my pastor was our keynote speaker and is probably one of the funniest introverts you have ever met.
Meanwhile, we are talking about finding joy and she says that you need to find your village. I instantly said to myself “find your tribe”. And boy oh boy I have.
It’s pretty amazing because I have a an amazing tribe. Sometimes which I find pretty hysterical is when I get anxious, I can go from 0-100 and clean the entire house and finish just about every homework assignment about a week and a half in advance. Which is pretty amazing considering about a year ago, I would go to the bar, I would lash out in a negative way, I would just sleep. SO I encourage you all to find a good tribe to be around.
Maybe I should create a job posting for when I am anxious and clean other peoples’ houses and do their homework hahahahahaha.
For whatever reason you are reading this, find your tribe.
