The author of this article made some interesting observations about building her community later in life-ideas that can help us too.

She writes, “I stopped looking for “my community” years ago, trying to fit in somewhere when one, I didn’t, and two, I really just wanted to be on my own most of the time.

In the process of doing so, I started being true to myself. Me, for the first time ever.

And strangely enough, I inadvertently built a community that works for me. It’s small, scattered, and sometimes remote, but it gives me the opportunity to interact with others who share my goals and interests. It’s not one large group of women with a common purpose but several smaller ones with a variety of interests and hobbies and that works for me.”
