In my writing, I often talk about nourishing the soul. It is one of the most important things we can do. Why? Because, when our soul is right and fulfilled almost everything else falls in place. When we are living the life we desire and making the most of what has been given us, we are free to focus on other things that only enhance the beautiful life that we have created for ourselves. If our soul isn’t right we spend so much time trying to get it right that we have no time for anything else.
Throughout life’s journey, we have opportunities along the way to do what I call “weeding the garden”. We have people that sap our soul rather than feed it that we find a way to cut loose. There are bad habits that we learn to overcome that open new paths for soul feeding. We open ourselves up to allow new people and new experiences that enrich our lives feed those pruned gardens. As a result, they replace the holes that were left. It is a constant evolution to becoming a better and brighter you.
That weeding that I mention is incredibly important. Just like a garden, when untended weeds begin to grow and before we know it those weeds have taken over and snuffed out all that is good. Once they become so strong and powerful, it becomes overwhelming and seemingly impossible to get rid of them. However, if we start with the low hanging fruit and tackle them one by one, before we know it they are gone and we have a whole lot of room for new growth to take hold. So is the growth with our soul.
Tending our soul is one of the most important things we can do. There is no one that can do it for us and it has to come before the soul of anyone else. Granted we are all a part of each others soul growth, but our ultimate responsibility is to ensure that our soul has the nourishment that it needs and that in the end it is happy and content. It is only then that it gives us the strength we need to help others achieve the same.
Have a great day and remember to be the reason someone smiles today.
