Finding My Tribe

For years, I've talked about reaching out to other food bloggers, finding kindred spirits who believe and practice mindfulness in their relationship with food and how they choose to nourish their bodies, minds, and souls.  And there was also a wish that has carried over from the time I was very small: to have friends that are Filipino - who understand my culture and my roots and will double over in laughter at inside jokes detailing the idiosyncrasies and too true stereotypes that come with growing up in a Filipino household.  But for a number of reasons, whether real or manufactured in my mind, I haven't put the time nor the energy into making it happen.  I've remained a lone wolf, doing my own thing and alternating between searching and evading.  Hoping for things to change while simultaneously holding close the comfort of isolation.
