I have really been considering my community and who I spend my time with, who I share my time with. When I come on and do this morning walk and talk, I share my time with you all because I feel like you guys appreciate what I'm doing. You're looking to grow in some kind of way or some kind of value from me, something that I can provide for you and I appreciate that because I want to do that. I am a server. I want to help but when I was thinking about how I want to help and how I want to serve, I just really think considering my community and my tribe and my friends and the five people that I spend my time with and where was I before my tribe and where am I now, so before and after of, you know, was I in a better place or was I in a worse place?
Sometimes, your tribe brings you to a higher level, but sometimes, your tribe push you down to a lower level so, just do a quick little scan. I love a body scan like this going from top to bottom and you're just thinking about your tribe one person at a time and not just trying to check somebody off because you don't appreciate them or you got mad at them or something like that. But just considering how have they had an impact on my mental health, how have they had an impact on how I see things, how I hear things, how I think about myself and how I feel about them because of the impact it had on me, how am I feeling about my voice and what I'm talking about my voice, not just what I'm saying, but how I'm showing up, how I stand in my life in my confidence in how I lead, how I talk, how I share my love, all of those sort of things. How do they make me feel in my heart. Am I resistant to how they're feeling into me or am I open? Do you feel refreshed when you get off the phone or do you feel stressed out? And just really being able to consider that and just when you consider them are you walking into a situation or are you tiptoeing through the door because you really don't want to feel like. Just doing that quick little body scan when it comes to your friends.
But for my friend, I felt like I was cool. I feel like I'm a person that looks to grow and loves learn and loves to share but after this current generation of support, I feel like they're pulling me higher and some of them are pushing me higher and just making me better and challenging me to be a better version of myself. Friends tell you, they’ll be like, “I can't support this, this is terrible. Can you do better? Can you just be better please?” And I appreciate that because I don't want you to talk about me. I want you to help me and I appreciate that because that's what support does. Is your support group, is your friends are the five people that you hang around? Are they also your support group and are you their support group? Just think about that. Consider that. Do that body scan when it comes to how you're impacting your friends and how you're letting them impact you. I want to be around people that are so wonderful that I let them impact me in the best way possible.
