My heart truly feels like it's going to explode right now. I am so giddy with excitement that I can barely sit in my seat. My skin, my very pores are screaming to be touched to leap off me and into the stratosphere. My soul feels like it's trying to pry it's way through and come bursting out. I can't even fathom the last time I was this excited....OK, it was probably last week over a new bag of freshly roasted coffee beans ~ BUT STILL. Yogi Brunch Club is 2 days away and the gifts keep pouring in. Today I went to pick up the most beautiful goodie bags I've ever seen from SoulScape Gift and Bookstore and it hit me just how much MY community, MY tribe, MY people have come forward to support this seemingly crazy idea of mine. I say MY because YES I am staking claim. I am attaching myself to these wonderful businesses, establishments, organizations, people because for the first time possibly ever I have people.
Being a long time fan of Grey's Anatomy I am well aware of Shonda's reoccurring theme of being alone and needing/wanting to have 'that person' in your life. I get it. I've been there; but it took moving 6000+ miles, uprooting my life, leaving behind some things and attempting to grow new things that I finally found not just my person but my tribe. I know this term, this word "tribe" is getting tossed around A LOT much like organic, gluten free, local but the word the essence of TRIBE is so powerful. Tribe comes from the Latin word, Tribus - and means group of like minded individuals, coming together for a common goal, theme, custom even belief. Isn't that what we're all looking for anyway? Your tribe can be your family, can be your friends and can most certainly be your community. You're not a band of thieves but you could be. You're not a group of conspiracy theorist, but again....you could be. Your tribe is what you make it - it's what you attract. I attract love, compassion, giving, authenticity, fun, blazing, creative, open, strong, colorful, hungry, devoted souls; and I'm getting that.
My heart is so full in this moment and all though I have to embrace, cherish and relish in THIS moment I know I also have to release in order to let more in. Yogi Brunch Club has opened and continues to open me up in so many ways - the people that I am having the opportunity to connect with on this project has blown me away. This is not, I repeat NOT a one woman show.
It is my goal this year to turn E.D.Y. into a B-corp, whether or not we can actually become certified I do not know but it is our intention that we continue to grow into a company that is bigger than profits but gives back, educates and inspires the world. When things are this good, you can't help but want to share it, right?
My heart is full. I can't wait to show you what's next. :-)
