EP 79 Community Why We Need It and 7 Ways To Find Yours
If there is one overriding thing the COVID Pandemic did, it was to increase our isolation.
The enforced lockdown robbed us of our community.
Our sense of belonging.
Our ability to see the world as we did before-or BC, before COVID.
But, I believe that we were made for community. For seeing the needs of others and being seen.
In today's episode we look at a variety of ways to find a community, to model making and being friends to our kids. And then, the value of reaching out to find our place and voice.
And, after I had recorded this, my precious niece posted this so I had to copy it!
Today one of my neighbors, who has since moved away, called me and said she’d be by in 10 minutes for a cup of coffee so we could catch up. I loved this. My mom and her friends/sisters did life this way. We’d pop in and show up on people’s doorsteps all the time. No time to clean up, to fix your hair, or make your house look perfect, just real life. People would be screaming at their kids or the kitchen would be a mess. They’d throw us a laundry basket or a dish rag and we’d go right along with them as we visited. I always admired how my mom did life this way. It has always made me feel kind of sad when so many people talk about how much they hate when people show up unannounced, but that’s how life really works! That’s how community is created. I get it, it’s inconvenient at times, but maybe we’ve started caring way too much about how things look in our life rather than how our relationships look. Anyways, I love you and you are welcome here any time 💗💗💗 Thank you for this reminder!
Now y’all get ready, I may just be stopping by 😂
Here's to being not only in community, but a great community member as well!
