As a result of the class, 5 Habits of Highly Creative Teachers, I have come to look at Tribes in a whole new light. In the past, I would have considered it to be something primitive or assigned to you as a result of your geography or ethnic background, but it has been expanded upon or redefined based less upon proximity of its members, but more so about shared ideas and values. Thus, I have come to think of tribes as people who commune based upon their passions and interests–it’s more of a choice rather than an obligation. Furthermore, your tribe can ignite and inspire others, so your network can combine and expand.
Reflecting on this, made me feel a powerful sense of “oneness” and connection, especially when I put together a playlist of songs that represent my journey so far. This made me completely nostalgic as well. It made me ponder where I am and where I want to go; furthermore, who do I want with me along this journey. Thus, my biggest insight I got from doing this exercise was the need to evaluate my values from time to time, and see who I can connect with in order to explore who I am and who I am becoming.
