Aspire to Inspire~ finding your tribe

It has been a little over  three years now since I picked up blogging again.  This blog has been through three face lifts and I am happy with where it is going. However, I am still trying to find it’s voice.  Where does Four The Health Of It fit in on this massive blogosphere?  Back then, I was reading posts on S.I.T.S. Girls website looking for inspiration and how to be the best blogger ever! It was pretty overwhelming.  I was not looking to make this a business. I just wanted to get my stories out of my head!

So, what was this to become?  A running blog? I am a runner but races are not my thing.  So writing only about running made me feel like a phony. Who was I to talk about it when I was not putting up the miles like so many awesome bloggers I follow?

Strength training? Cardio? Yoga? Healthy recipes? Clean living?

One thing that I learned from S.I.T.S Girls was that blogger needs to find their tribe to be successful.


Find your tribe. I believe this is true not just in blogging. If you have an interest and you surround yourself with like-minded people, several things happen:

  • You enjoy it more
  • You make new friends
  • You will be successful

Now, I don’t refer to success in a monetary connotation.  I mean it in a life changing, positive way.  My bestie started painting and is really good at it. Check out her FB page here. She has found her tribe full of other artists. I am happy that she has found this group because I can see that she is truly happy and loves what she is doing.  My sister joined a FB fitness group that is associated with #MyPeakChallenge. My sis is a huge inspiration to me.  And this group of hers? They push each other daily. She has made great progress in the past three months and new friends to inspire as well.

As for me? My tribe consists of a melting pot of greatness.  It consists of runners, crossfitters, yogis, fashionistas and SAHM’s.  Men and women who, through your blogs, FB pages and Instagram posts inspire me to push my self farther and harder then before.  I have met so many great people through challenges, my affiliations with SweatPink and BurnThis…. I am truly humbled by the support and advice that you all are so willing to give.  When I hear from someone telling me I inspire them? Well, that is the best feeling in the world!  That tells me I am where I should be.   This tribe.  This blog of total randomness.  This is where I belong. Thank you all for being a part of it!

    Mary, I’m so glad you are back! And to be honest, I agree with you in terms of success and finding your tribe, my tribe is random, my blog doesn’t fit into one category, and honestly, despite the exercise in the name, has the LEAST to do with fitness, but I write what my heart tells me to, and from it I receive such joy!

    • I am happy you are here Amber. You alway bring with a positive energy in you comments. In regards to writing, I go through periods were I don’t have much to say. But when I do get inspired by something like finding your tribe, I feel like those are my favorite posts!
