Find your TRIBE
We’re organic creatures (just like plants) so the dynamics of ‘other’ forms of organic life apply to us too. Different types of plants sometimes grow better when they are near each other. Gardeners call it companion planting. In an article in Flower and Garden magazine Jeffrey Minnich explains that, “plants, like people, get along with one another in many ways. Sometimes 2 different plants growing near each other don’t get along. At other times plants, side by side neighbors, flourish and actually help each other grow.”
As much as I’ve never thought of myself as plant-like this does make sense. Finding our ‘people’ (or optimum positioning in the garden) is key to Healthy YUMMY Aging. In this place growth is accelerated, we’re stimulated in profound ways and we bloom year round. We feel energized, excited, optimistic, we see opportunities. We stimulate each other and instill a sense of possibility. We become fearless.
If you are surrounded by your ‘tribe’ you are indeed lucky. If not, how to find them?
Our ‘tribe’ can be linked to us in several ways.
1. Sometimes it’s through our passions. In this case uncovering what we’re passionate about is the first step.
2. It could be a particular personality type, we may be drawn to those with playfulness, humor or intensity.
3. It could be what people do (work, hobbies, pursuits) that aligns.
4. It may be how people think (spiritual, political). Beliefs can be a powerful connector.
Whatever it is we owe it to ourselves to find our ‘people’. In their company our spirit will be fed and our hearts warmed. We will be driven to raise the bar of our own aspirations and become even YUMMIER!
