Whatever the people in the clan want it to look like.  For me personally, I enjoy knowing people on a deeper and deeper level.  I enjoy sharing from the heart and people looking within themselves for anwsers to their questions.  I enjoy people going out on a limb and walking into the fire together.   We need to support and encourage each other in our lives as Jaclyn is trying to encourage people to do.

Thank you, Kathleen, for sharing with me and the rest of The REBEL Society.  Your kind, compassionate heart comes through in this post and I’m so grateful to be able to share you with other people!  I love you SO much and thank you for taking the time to answer these questions!
