Connection is the key to conception of self. Through connection to ourselves and others we are able to truly understand our spirit and our interests. Connection is the not only the thing that binds us to ourselves, it binds us to our good vibe tribe or our running buddies. Our running buddies or our good vibe tribe are the people that run alongside us to cheer us on, support us, make us laugh, shine a light on us when we get stuck in a dark place, and most importantly they will bring out some of the best parts of us. The running buddy is someone who will ask if you are ok. Not only will they ask if you are ok, but the will take a chance to lend you a hand to get you back on two feet. The running buddy will not fix your problems, but they will help you to water when you well is dried up at the moment. Your good vibe tribe will not complain or condemn, but instead they will inspire and uplift. A good vibe tribe will love you unconditionally, even when your face won't shine rather than push you down further for their own selfish needs.
A good vibe tribe is the group of people that will be the ones we can feel at home with and be our honest true self with. Our support does always not need to come from our family or a loved one. Sometimes our family will not give off good vibes. Families are often the sources of criticism and lack of support. A runny buddy is someone that supports you, your life, and the things you are passionate about. Find a running buddy as a member of you church, your yoga instructor, a coach, a person you meet at an event of your interest, or through a creative class or group.
Runny buddies are often all around, if you open yourself up to having real honest conversations with people around you. Connection starts with communication and shared interests. Happiness and the ability to grow as our best self begins with connection to our true self. We also need to understand the importance of having a person or a group of people whose spirits align with ours. Our good vibe tribe will consist of those whose spirits align with ours and share at least one interest in which we can relate on. And many times we mistake, co-workers, drinking buddies, and childhood friends as our runny buddy when they are just surface level connections met through a shared environment. We all have our tribe, so don't settle for less. Take the time to find your tribe, and understand that good things come within time but are well worth the wait.
