Where do you fit?
In the scheme of things, you have to fit somewhere, though, where exactly you may not know. Maybe it is on a sport team or office clique or a group of high school friends that refuse to let time pull them apart. We have roles to play if we want to feel wanted or want to feel needed. There are places in your existence that were made especially for you, voids where only you fit. The hard part is finding them and filling them as best you can. Perhaps your place is keeping a household together and raising children to be great people, or contributing to a technology that could change the world. Maybe you are just a good friend to someone who needs one at the time-All are equally important. Most likely, there will be a time when it is demanded that you fill all three. Nobody said it was easy.
Facing things that challenge us everyday is important in finding that special place where things feel right. In doing so, we learn about ourselves and other people that show us the way to who we are or what we aspire to be. These challenges are part of our journey and elemental in our search for the answer to the age-old question: What is the meaning of life? Well, simply put, it is to have a meaningful life. It is that simple and the only answer fit for everyone.
Human Tribe Project is designed around a challenge to see if people fill the holes opening up around them and how well they’re held when they become difficult places to be. Lending a hand or sharing a thought when someone needs one or both is a way to own those places; or being a bridge between people with questions and those with answers. Everybody plays an integral part in this project. All the spaces need to be filled with people ready to be challenged and ready to have the staying power to see things through. You may be a Tribe Leader guiding the way, or the one single Tribe Member connecting the Americas with the rest of our Human tribe. You could be a Beneficiary, having the greatest challenge of them all, drawing support and motivation from those filling the spaces around you: To show courage to fear and strength to weakness and love for life when you feel there isn’t time. Yes, there are inequities in the challenges we face in life because sometimes our role in this project picks us.
