family is more than what we are born into family is also those we choose, those who choose us.. The people who delight in our achievements, who celebrate our being and support our passions, the people who honor our freedom and embrace our authenticity... Family feels like home.. It is harmony, we feel alive together, powerful, in joy.. Family are those who reinforce us who help us to become better ourselves, and ideally we enjoy them even when they challenge us... It's the feeling of feeling embraced without physical touch of feeling seen and appreciated when no one is there ... They reinforce what we see and give to self and they are there attracted to us for our work for our walk in the world..
