Remembering to Give Thanks
In America, today is Thanksgiving. It is a time we gather with loved ones and reflect on what we are thankful for. For many of us it can be a lonely, difficult, painful reminder that we are struggling to find freedom.
One thing we know for sure is the value of reflecting on what we are grateful for. Truly being thankful for what we have, no matter how small, is an energizing gift.
So we thought we’d take some time to share with you, our tribe, what we are thankful for this year.
We are incredibly grateful for our growing tribe. As of today we have just over 400 people who have registered for rTribe! We are just a month old and it is such an honor to journey with each of you toward freedom. I feel a great sense of gratitude as I think about each of you making the choice to check in, to connect with your friends, and to choose freedom regardless of what yesterday held.
We are thrilled to have investors that believe in our idea and that are helping bring it to life by putting money down so we can make rTribe a reality. It is a humbling thing to have someone write you a check and trust you to use it well. It’s crazy, really.
We’ve been working for about 10 months now, since the first time Alex and I dared to ask a big question: ‘What if we built an app to revolutionize recovery?’.
Any big dream can’t be accomplished alone. Part of our tribe includes those who have put money on the table to help us make something great.
We have a team of people that are working together to build a stronger, bigger tribe. We have developers, advisors, friends, mentors, and organizations who all want to help connect and create a global tribe of recovery. Many of these people don’t want attention and prefer not to be named, but we know who they are and are thankful for their contributions.
Lastly and definitely not forgotten, we’d like to give thanks to our loved one; significant others, children, parents and siblings. As I’m sure you’ve heard, starting a business is hard work. It’s time consuming, mentally taxing and stressful, and without their support rTribe wouldn’t be where it is today.
These are the things we’re thankful for this year. We just wanted to take the time to share them because sometimes we forget to actually say what we are thankful for.
We’d love to hear what you’re thankful for, and if you’re open to it, we might share them.
