Dear Tribe, I Love You

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” (Proust)

Surround yourself with people who truly get you; find your tribe, love them hard. I feel a tremendous amount of gratitude for my amazing tribe! One picture could never pay tribute to the HUGE extended family that I have created for myself through the years. If you’re reading this, you are likely part of that tribe and I thank you for that. No matter how big or small, your presence in my life has created an impact.

Dear tribe, I simply love and adore you. This note of gratitude is for you…

Thank you for making so many ordinary moments, extraordinary. Thank you for always giving me the extra push I need. Thank you for telling me the truth, even when it hurts. Thank you for talking things out with me. Thank you for meeting me halfway. Thank you for being compassionate. Thank you for thinking of me as often as you do. Thank you for making time for me. Thank you for your full presence. Thank you for knowing when something is wrong with me. Thank you for making the extra effort to understand me. Thank you for not acting, judging, or treating me like you know me better than I know myself. Thank you for being willing to be wrong. Thank you for supporting my decisions. Thank you for being loyal, even when we are apart. Thank you for being there through good times and bad. Thank you for knowing that I can’t always be strong. Thank you for facing problems with me. Thank you for going out of your way for me, even when it’s not convenient. Thank you for actually wanting to be there for me. Thank you for walking the talk. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for encouraging me when I stumble. Thank you for using caring words. Thank you for accepting me just the way I am. Thank you for making me feel comfortable in my skin. Thank you for simply enjoying my company. Thank you for valuing my time. Thank you for supporting me in making myself a priority. Thank you for sincerely loving me. Thank you for helping me love myself more too. Thank you for all the little things you do that make a big difference. Thank you for being patient and forgiving when I step on your toes. Thank you for not expecting our relationship to always be easy. Thank you for giving me the solitude and space I need.

Thank you for being YOU. And most importantly, thank you for your unconditional love and the blessing of allowing me to learn from your process.
