As I age, I have developed routines and do many things out of habit. We do the same daily things, become entangled in our children's lives, and new friendships are hard to create. At 37, I'm not going to meet new people at the bar or other in and out establishments. With the development of High Vibe, I have experienced this for myself. Many of the people who have come into the doors of High Vibe have become friends. We tend to know things about each other, and through daily and weekly interactions, these people become friends. I find that these friendships are with solid humans. We are like-minded, goal-driven, giveback centered, and are on a path of personal growth. We use fitness as a vessel to keep us emotionally, mentally, and physically sound. People are tribal. We are meant to be surrounded by other people, and it is up to us to decide who we will be around.
You have a choice in who you surround yourself with tune into your gut feelings. If you are around someone, which triggers a pit in your stomach, that person probably isn't right for you if you have someone that brings you joy and laughter, listens, and supports how does that make you feel? Your stomach is your emotional powerhouse, and if you aren't holding your power, I encourage you to take some time and pay attention to your gut feelings.
If you're feeling lonely, unengaged, or like you need some new people surrounding you, here are a few good places to foster those relationships. Group Fitness Gyms Churches Volunteering Hobby Groups like Quilting, Biking, Dog Parks, etc
Remember that everything is a process and to be gentle with yourself. Good Vibes, Jess
