Family is everything.
I hope that from the moment you are born until the day you die, you surround yourself with loved ones. Life is like ice cream: best when shared with others. That is a bad analogy, because I really love ice cream and would be totally fine NOT sharing with you and eating it all myself...unless ice cream makes you happy, in which case I would be fine with sharing because I like making other people smile. Just do that, make other people smile because it feels nice.
Family isn't always forged in blood, many times family is chosen. Those who see the wacky divine light in you and say, "You're my kind of people!" are family too.
Think about the three most important people in your life, and chances are at least one is not related by blood...but your bond is far deeper than DNA. That's your tribe, the people who just "get" you. No pretense, no obligation, no explanations necessary. You be you and they will come.
Appreciate these awesome weirdos, because they are your people.

Vibe Your Tribe
This week I am all about family, as my son will become Bar Mitzvah on Saturday. Today our entire blended family stood together taking photos, and my heart was full and proud. If you're fortunate enough to be part of a blended family, it's really worth the work to get along. It doesn't matter how long it takes you to get there, just be kind and always try to meet halfway, and you'll get there.
If you haven't read it yet, what are you waiting for?
It's THAT good.
