but to know someone who thinks and feels with us,
and who, though distant, is close to us in spirit,
this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The Fly Tribe is celebrating a year since we came together for Kelly Rae Roberts' Flying Lessons. Along the way we have taken what we learned during the class and put it into use in a variety of ways. Some started blogs, others got published in magazines, some opened stores for their creative wares, and some kept doing what they were already doing, but a bit better. Whatever we did though, we found that we weren't doing it alone. We really did find a tribe in the class.
We found a community filled with new friends. We supported one another as we walked through the fear of reaching for success. We even supported one another when life got us down. Especially when it got us down...or sent challenges that felt bigger than us. We found a sisterhood.
As the first anniversary of the 2011 Flying Lessons class comes around, our private Facebook group is abuzz with remember-when's, with gratitude, and thoughts of what the coming years will bring.
One thing we know for sure is that we want to make our anniversary about celebrating the spirit of giving that has been such an important part of our journey this year. So for the month of August, we are focusing on giving. Check back on the 20th to find out just how we are doing that...as individuals and as a group. I think you just might find our giving could give you flight!
Your Fly Tribe Friend,
