The village

Posted: September 12, 2016 in Uncategorized

I have heard the phrase “It takes a village”, time and time again in reference to raising children or completing a project. This statement really resonates with me, I do think that it does take the proverbial village to get things done.  We have to work together towards a common goal or common good if we plan on accomplishing anything worthwhile. Working together can be a challenge especially for people who are socially awkward, introverted or even extroverted, but working together is necessary and healthy “no man is an island”.

The thing that helps me when I am in the village working with my fellow villagers is remembering that “everyone in the village is interesting, important and equal” this perspective really makes it easy for me to listen more talk less and get in where I can fit in when it comes to group projects. I want to encourage everyone today to celebrate their fellow villagers and be a part of something good and big.
