I’ve been guilty of drowning in my own mess of stuff that I forget to check in on other people who I enjoy having in my life, who I value and who I consider to be a part of my tribe. I make excuses trying explain or justify that I gotta just do me. That something something came up. Or, maybe I just avoid calling the person. But we, as women, are not only great communicators. We are extremely empathetic and sympathetic. For us not to be in touch with one another is a great loss to our connection.
So since everyone (ideally) is checking the bank accounts, how much they’re saving and the improvements their budgets could use, check in on your friends. Check in your loved ones. Definitely check in on your tribe! Make sure they’re doing all right. Offer yourself to their aid. Make yourself available in the near future. Your tribe is in your life for a reason and not just to bounce ideas off, but to bond. To share experiences. To connect.
If you haven’t sent that text, or Instagram message or email. Do so. Most people my age don’t call. But I do, because I play an adult in real life. So I also call. I do my best to remind myself that just like I have days I get caught up. The same applies to them.
So, check in on your tribe. Make sure everything is good with them. Connect. You’re on each others team for a reason.
