Leaving the tribe...

My brother told me once, "Phil, you have to leave the tribe without them knowing". I have thought about this statement many times over the last 6 years since moving the Nashville.

We all have our own path we dream of following and my path led me several hours away from family. I do miss them and I know I miss out on a lot, but leaving was the best thing I could have ever done. I have grown more as a person in the last 6 years than the previous 39 years. I think having the protection of a family can be a hinderence to personal growth, especially if you are a "pleaser" like me.

But the six-hour seperation makes our family functions even more special. I can't wait for the next reason to celebrate.

I have a fabulous core family and love them very much. But I had to leave the tribe to follow my path to self actualization. It has been an amazing 6 years and I look forward to the future and the rest of my journey.

Peace and joy to all,

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
