There’s a rejuvenating, empowering energy in groups where people share a common vision or passion. I can be quite reserved and introspective. For years I hung out in dance studios and art rooms, doing my thing. Neither required much talking, but there was massive communication going on. I always knew that I’d learn something by being around people who were learning and creating. I’ve always needed that balance between isolation where my ideas are born and community where they are challenged to grow.

This week find a Family History Center near you to drop in on, visit your local genealogical society, or search for genealogy/family history related blogs on Twitter. Make a phone call to some relatives and ask about an ancestor. Get around some people who can inspire you.

That’s what’s on my mind today. That’s it.

Get out of your comfort zone and find your flock.
