We've all heard it - Your vibe attracts your tribe. Meaning that the energy you put out in the world directly reflects on the energies you receive, and that you are open to receiving.
Let's get real. Can you think of a time when you've spent time with a friend, or talked to someone so frequently that you started to pick up on their mannerisms and sayings? It's probably safe to say that we all have at one point, as us humans are programmed to pick up on the energies around us - be it negative or positive.
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Think about this. Who do you spend the most time with? Do they always find the good in situations, or do they dwell on the negatives? If you answered with the latter, then it might be a good time to do a self check to make sure that the people you're surrounding yourself with are lifting you up and nurturing positivity rather than bringing you down and hindering your growth.
Ok, that's great and all, but now what? Everyone's tribe will be different, and that's what makes life and our relationships so wonderful. So how do you identify and attract the right tribe for you?
Start with Yourself
You are so uniquely awesome, so identify what's holding you back from being the best version of yourself.
We challenge you to stand in front of the mirror every morning and identify one thing you love about yourself. This can be physical, emotional or mental, and as simple as loving your smile. Say it OUT LOUD and truly believe it. When you focus on the positives and what you love about yourself, the negatives take their place in the bleachers.
It's amazing what and who can come into your life when you open up your heart and are truly grateful for everything that you have - big or small.
We love to start each day with a grateful heart. When you wake up each morning, write down a few things that you're grateful for in life. If you need a guide, we love this Gratitude Journal that can help hold you accountable every day.
Need something simple to start? How about being grateful that you are able to read this. Yup, it's really that simple.
Get Out Of Your Damn Comfort Zone
You can't expect change when you don't actively change something. There is something so gratifying about doing something that scares the sh*t out of you (and doing it like the bada** you are). You never know who will be there and if they might be the perfect fit for your tribe.
Go ahead and sign up for a dance class, take on a side hustle, wear bold clothes that elicit happiness, try a new cuisine. Every little bit counts.
Be The First To Reach Out
If you met someone with good vibes, don't be afraid to reach out. You never know when someone is hoping to meet you just as much as you're hoping to meet them. (Did we mention that mid-day coffee dates with the girls are simply the best)
Be Genuine and Listen
Check in on your people. Make sure they're OK. Ask them questions and really listen. Don't just hear, but actually listen. What are they telling you, how can you help them be a better version of themselves? There's an indescribable feeling of happiness when you help others simply out of the kindness of your heart. Human beings crave genuine and real relationships, so any relationship that's not real simply isn't worth your energy.
When you put our positivity into the world, it's nearly impossible to not get it in return. Misery loves company, so don't give the universe a reason to create more negativity.
March is all about women and we'll be the first to say that we love it #WhoRunTheWorld. We encourage you to you focus on loving yourself, loving your people and all that you are blessed with in this crazy thing we call life. Get out there, BE BOLD and attract your tribe, babe.
