I've never been the type of girl who had lots of girlfriends. Not for any real reason. I've always had one or two really close girlfriends at any given time in my life. I've just never really felt like the type of girl that can be thrown into the mix with a big group of girls and feel at home.
The closest I ever had was in high school sports. Being part of a team, spending years with the same girls, blood, sweat, and tears as we worked hard together to become a TEAM and to work toward the same goals. I loved it. And I think that was the only (and last) time I had that girltribe vibe in my life.
In college I wasn't in a sorority or any sports. Afterward I've always been self employed. So girl tribes have been missing from my life for years. For so long, in fact, that I didn't even realized I needed on or missed it! I thought I was just one of those people who has a few close friends but never a group of girls. I would get sad over it when movies like Sex and the City would come out. Why didn't I have that group too? And then... I found them!
I wasn't expecting to get an entire GIRLTRIBE when I signed up as a Beachbody coach. I wasn't expecting to feel such a deep sense of pride and community and team spirit and acceptance and support when I joined as a coach. I wasn't expecting to find what I didn't even realize I was missing. But I did!
These women inspire me and encourage me and answer my silly questions and ponder over deeper ones with me. They lead lives of example and give so much of themselves to help others succeed. They make me proud to be a coach and to be part of this amazing community.
And then I found my core group! It happened kind of on accident. We didn't really expect to get as close as we have. These ladies in the photos below are my success partners. What does that mean? It means that we are a little tribe within a tribe. We all started growing our businesses at about the same time and we met in training groups! Since then we've bonded over ups and downs both in our businesses and our lives. We've shared ideas and brainstormed solutions. We've held each other up when we needed support. We've celebrated victories and shared sadness. They are my core GIRLTRIBE and I am a better person for knowing them! These 4 women inspire me every day and I am so happy to have them in my life! I could gush over them forever but for now I'll just leave you with some photos and say that I get to hang out with ALL OF THEM in November and I'm literally counting the days till we are reunited. We are all spread out between the US and Canada so we only get to see eachother a few times a year. I cannot wait to be reunited with my GIRLTRIBE!
