My People

"Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one."
— Jane Howard

One of my favorite shows is Grey's Anatomy, and I have always appreciated the relationship between Meredith and Christina. I love how they genuinely use the term "my person" with one another.

We all need "a person" or "people" by our side as we travel our journey. Usually the people in your life you are closest to are traveling a parallel journey as you in someway. Sometimes that may be because of hobbies, fitness goals, children, or work. Regardless, we should pay close attention to the positive energy these people bring us. They should be our champions, as we should champion them. Our people make it possible to keep our head above water as we strive to achieve our goals. They bring humor and laughter to our lives in bucketfulls. They also help us to recognize our character and keep us accountable and on track.

I am surrounded by amazing individuals on a daily basis; my people. Unconditional acceptance is available, as they know my authentic character. I feel comfortable and confident in their presence. They listen and offer sound advice, helping me keep negative energy at bay. I trust them with my whole heart.

Do you have a tribe? A network? A clan? Who are your "people"? Make sure to let them know...
