Find your tribe, love them hard //
I feel like society today strives to be independent, but independence isn't always a good thing. We live in our own houses, drive our own cars, buy our own groceries, make our own dinners, take care of our own kids, etc. But what if we shared our burdens a little bit more? What if we traded dinner with a family a couple times a month. So you knew, every other Friday, dinner was taken care of. What if you traded kids a couple times a month. So you knew that every other Wednesday, you had a day off? Or a day to walk around Target by yourself? Or get a haircut...or even take a shower? We have heard so many times, "It takes a village"....but the saying is so true. It literally takes a village to raise a child and I feel like right now, we are in DIRE need to bring that village back. There is too much independence, too much judgement, too much information, to much stress over organic vs non organic, breastfeeding vs formula feeding etc. (And I am SO guilty of these crappy thoughts of what I think is better - I am a strong believer in Attachment Parenting and have had such a hard time pushing myself to accept other ways of parenting #WorkInProgress). BUT it is my goal to push into my TRIBE of people, and love them hard. And I challenge you to do the same.
I am such an introvert so I have such a hard time leaving my comfort zone, and basically getting out of my jammies and into real clothes to meet up with my tribe. But My goal is to re-prioritize my schedule, and fit in a few more outings with and with out kids. Gotta stay connected, friends.
