I’m a lone wolf. Clubs, cults and congregations feel like cages for Souls unbeknownst to themselves. I didn’t join Facebook, or even text much on a cell phone, until 2012, and to this day, I really don’t like to talk on the phone. 🔹
When we moved to Seattle, I left Fb and found new community here on IG. Most of my friends here came from a single Tribe de Mama circle I attended locally after connecting through IG. This, too, felt like it had served it’s purpose, and I never went back
As much as I dig genuine human connection, I equally enjoy pure, meaningful solitude. (Eagle just flew by my window. 😉) I go back and forth with my desire to keep up with this family of squares. No pun intended. 😄 And wow, keep up…yeah, it really feels like that sometimes. It also, deep down, feels like a great big ego stroke, if I’m really being honest with myself. I think most of us would be lying to ourselves if we claimed not to care about that little insignificant number we call our ‘followers’, or whether we are ‘in’ with those we view as the cool crowd, the apex girl gang, if you will. Hmm, even that term ‘followers’ feels dividing. 🔹
No doubt, there is inspiration, and at times, what feels like real connection here, and for that, I’m truly grateful. It can be fun; It can be supportive; and also, it can feel isolating and cold. In truth, we are all connected and can tune in to the collective from within, anytime we like. And from this source within, there is a well that will never run dry.
Undoubtedly, I will return, but for now, I’m taking a break from this space to realign with my own internal source of inspiration, wisdom, connection and love. It must come from within to be real. There is no ‘other’ in self-love. And one cannot truly love another until one has fully loved themself.
