“Everything for the Soul” is to be a resource for inspiration on your daily battle to bring out the best in yourself without the reliance on money, material possessions, drugs, alcohol, or any other addictions and vices. If it were a shop, it would be filled with everything devoted to uplifting you, making you be your best and feeling good in a healthy long-lasting way. You would find signs and books with positive messages, gratitude journals, friends who support you, an environment that promotes connection, uplifting music, nature, various workshops to allow creativity, inspiration, lessons from therapist and plenty of warm sunshine. Everything to help you create that feeling inside of wholeness and at peace with who you are.
I am most at peace when I am enjoying the beauty of this earth such as in the woods, on a lake in a kayak, on a private beach, or enjoying the sounds of birds in the morning. Maybe it is something different for you when you recognize your true best self where all that negative talk is gone and you have peace within yourself. There are times of the year when outdoor activities are not possible or times in our life where we need extra help working through our struggles. We can still dance!
A great quote I heard once is “hurting people hurt people.” Everyone has a story and many of us let negative self-talk bring us back to those voices during the most painful times of our life. If more people could overcome that with practices to be at their best more, there would be less cruelty causing those ripple effects in others’ lives.
How long has it been since you felt fulfilled? Within the blog, you will find some simple practices and inspiration and links to discover your best you while I continue to learn in my personal development from others along the way. The lessons here are based on my own experience, studies, and lessons from professional therapists. You will find ways to help you apply helpful techniques or communication strategies in your own life. Then I ask you to pass along your discoveries and influence someone else to bring out their best more often. Will you join me?
