It’s A Family Affair

So what is your definition of family?

I think of my mum and brothers, sister-in-law, nephews and niece. I think of my mother-in-law, and brothers and sisters-in-law, and their children. I think of my parents’ extended family, some of whom I may never meet. But what about friendships? Would you refer to your friends as family? I suppose it depends upon the quality and purpose of your friendships, or the intensity of your friendships? Perhaps it may have something to do with the quantity of your friends? If you have 500 friends, are they all family? family

I seem to be moving into unchartered territory, by forming business partnerships with people, who are fast becoming caring and nurturing friends. Perhaps I had no expectations of what this business would give me when I started out, but as I reflect on recent events and encounters and sharings, I can see that this is really very significant. We are all on a journey together. A journey of love, excitement, laughter, anxiety, disappointment, fear, success, challenge, fun and adventure. A journey of personal development and growth. A journey of discovery. For me, a journey of self-discovery and embracing the unknown. A journey of strength and endurance.

You are propelled into becoming your best self, developing business skills yes, but also life skills. The ‘big belly laughs’ as my grandmother used to say, are never far behind, and let’s face it, who can put a price on laughter?

So when I think about my family, as described at the start, I will also include the amazing group of business partners with whom I find myself on this journey of life.

Right now, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  1. Totally agree Tessa. When we go on the journey to be our best selves and others hold the space and supporting us in our learning and growth – the friendships that develop and deep and soul nurturing. These are the people that “get” you in a way many blood family members may not. Can’t wait to see you again in a few weeks. Yippee
