TRIBE [Part 1: A series on Family]
It is possibly the most courageous thing we will do in our lives, to live in family. Meet Elaine, Desmond, and their three amazing kids: Esther, Daniel, and baby Ezra. This tribe of brave hearts moved all the way from Singapore to be here, in Redding, CA to attend school. They gave up what was easy for what was truly worth it - to learn to love deeper from the source of love Himself. Everyone craves family and everyone needs it! In this series I’m discussing what it takes to have it. [ONE]: It requires you. The real you. The you that is worthy to be loved just because you exist. No extra required tests or skills. Just your authentic self. Real family does not expect of you what you cannot give. In real family, everyone gives their full selves without expectation of repayment or fear of punishment. Family is safe and a fortress to turn to in the darkest of nights - a parade of love in the greatest of victories.
The greatest journeys start in family, whether related by blood, or by choice of will. Either way, it still requires you. Be you. Learn yourself.
You are a powerful person, you can choose family that is healthy even if all you’ve known is dysfunction. You don’t have to wait another day in the cave of isolation. Come out and let your heart be known.
