One of the most beautiful things about being a woman is the connection we have with other women in our lives. Whether you have a girl tribe, a squad, a girl-gang, wolf-pack or if you have a family full of wonderfully close women, whatever you want to call them, these women are necessary to our lives and our mental health.
They say that we become like the five or six people we surround ourselves with most of the time. If that’s the case I think we all need to make sure we have quality people around us who inspire, uplift and make us better people just by being around them.
After going through what I call my mid-life crazy a few years ago, I realised I needed to re-evaluate my life and my friendships. We all have those people in our life who bring a level of toxicity that is unhealthy to our own well-being, and I realised I needed to do something about that. I went through a process I now call a ‘Friend Stocktake. I looked at the people who drained me and the people I loved but didn’t spend enough time with and I made a promise to myself to nurture the good and sideline the bad (its not as brutal as it sounds but it helps you to reclaim some power over your life).
The result of my Friend Stocktake was a list of the women I had in my life. Part of the process was to look closely at how these women made me feel, what they brought to my life, what qualities they had that I loved. From that analysis I came up with 6 types of women that I think we all need in our life. My tribe is called the #WarriorWomen tribe.
There may be other women you can identify for your tribe but believe me, these women are the ones who will help you to take your life and make it amazing.
In today’s world where women are pitched against each other in reality tv shows, online and in magazines, we need to surround ourselves with women who will defy societies norms and stand up for each other.
Its time to find your tribe and live your best life.
