Nerves, Lyrics and Powerful Wahoos
So, Thursday night was the first Tribe call.
It’s taken me this long to really wrap my head around it and put it into words.
And apparently, I’m still not there because all I can say was it was Uh!Maze!Ing!
Oh, I was nervous. Speaking to a group (even as lovely a group as you all are) had me quite literally vibrating.
So I did my thing…some EFT to get me centered, some love from my coach and peeps, and imagined myself AFTER the call, with the feeling of connection I always feel when I do my thing, the elation I knew I’d feel, the laughter and wahoos I knew I’d make…
And with that…well, then I just had to dance.
15 minutes before the call I cranked up some Peas and let my inner hip-hop out to play. Because really…what burns off the adrenaline, gets you laughing and into that feeling of love, and reminds you of how much fun LIFE is like hearing the lyrics “follow your intuition” and “don’t worry ’bout it; people will walk you through it” while you bounce around your RV?
Perfect, I tell ya.
And then I got on the phone, lost my breath a few times (I talk fast when I’m passionate and I *had* just finished dancing, if you remember?) , totally messed up the technical stuff and still, I shared from the depths of my soul.
And it was Uh!Maze!Ing!
I just can’t begin to describe the feeling of connection I experienced with all the women who shared, and even those who just listened.
So, I thought I’d let them do it for me…
Thank you so much for last night! I don’t know what I was expecting but it was so much more! I have pages of doodles and arrows and notes and my own thoughts scribbled beside. its so amazing to have other people who are experiencing what i am, to share, to hear other opinions. It was so much fun. my mind has been swirling with so many thoughts. Making time to “dig deep” this weekend! – Samantha
My mind is swirling too! It was absolutely awesome. – Susan
I’ve got tears on this call already. I’m only 20 minutes in! – Jennie (listening to the recording)
Wow! It was so jam packed full of goodness! I really need this in my life. I think we all do, because we can be so hard on ourselves. The nurturing factor was extremely good. That is a vibe you can’t mute!….The call was marvelous. I was aware of such a sense of love & affirmation w/everyone, as I’m sure you were. Love safe places! – Rachel
Thank u Tara! U r an amazing inspiration! – Tracy
Tara you are amazing for doing this! I got off call and took a nice long shower and thought about everything I heard. I can’t wait for the forum! – Rebecca
Great call tonight lady! I had A LOT more to say but didn’t want to bulldoze people who hadn’t talked yet so I can’t wait for the forum. Glad I listened to my intuition and jumped on the call. – Brianna
And here’s one mama’s powerful revelation after we connected and worked through some things together in the Tribe: Embracing the Disgusting
And then I did what I imagined myself doing…
After the call, I let loose my whoops and wahoos, I had my running jump into my husband’s arms, I gave my kiddo a giant hug and of course, I called my mama and my sister to share my elation.
Cuz I did it! What I wanted to do!
I took my message out of it’s box, danced off those silly fears and boundaries and leaned into what I know I’m here to do…my part of inspiring the world.
And it feels Uh!Maze!Ing!
We celebrated with family rocking it on Sleeping Bear Dunes, feeling pretty “wahoo” about making it to the top of that bad boy and just being silly together.
Because life – and rocking it – is good like that.
Next amazing thing to put into the world: the Sisterhood forums and the next Tribe call!
