From The Weiser Chamber Director: Find New Tribes

All my life I’ve always come back to one thing:  my need to feel free and the need to feel the breeze.  The ride provides a freedom this gypsy needs.  Every road is another blessed memory and a new experience to carry on my journey with a sense of belonging to a familiar tribe, a brother & sisterhood that goes beyond a bloodline, and creates a family with purpose.

I can no longer see or identify myself solely as a member of one tribe, but as a citizen of communities of people working toward a common purpose. I belong to many tribes.

I may well be bringing fresh notions or concepts that will cause many people to think of me as a bit odd, but I’m okay with that.  Because maybe I’m just conscious and alive in a wonderfully strange world. That said, it doesn’t mean everyone will ‘get’ me. We all have a different view in life. What I do mean, however, is that my tribes can find me.

As we become part of a tribe, we become better humans. 

Maybe your tribe is your church, serve well. Maybe your tribe is your gym, encourage others. Maybe you are in a service organization, strengthen your community.  Maybe your tribe is work, give more than you’re given. Maybe your tribe is supporting a struggling family, pure love. 

I understand wanting your freedom, I understand being busy, I understand that there is a time and a season.  Some people see a storm coming, others are in the middle of a storm, and others have just survived a storm. Hopefully your tribe was close.

But with that all said, we all will live our private lives better when we are a part of a public tribe, when we serve others, we find that we are supported by a larger circle of friends.

So many of our local service organizations struggle, primarily because so few are doing so much. I would encourage everyone to open your heart and widen your circle. Be a part of more than one tribe. 

As the Chamber of Commerce engages more and more into the community and partners with more and more organizations, I personally hope that I find a tribe that you are in, and we become a larger tribe as we serve our community together.
