This post goes out to all the people with thirsty hearts and hungry souls…(that includes me)
You’ve heard the saying, “Feed Your Soul,” I know I say it quite a bit myself because sometimes there are days when my soul is so hungry! Hungry for what? Something purposeful, meaningful, and inspirational. Isn’t that what life is all about and why we’re here?
What makes you tick? Lights you up from the inside out? That’s what I’m talking about.
One of the greatest things I’ve learned after my divorce is how to stop the insanity and feed my soul. Things I completely forgot about came back to me, like writing, listening to song lyrics, exercise, and walking beside a body of water. Whenever I’m feeling blue, these are the things that swoop in and heal me in an inspiring way. I also discovered new things like reading Paulo Coelho books that are so incredibly written. He is one heck of a word wizard that’s for sure. In case of an emergency, cookies are always good too, but not too many!
Then there are the tougher days. Starvation sets in and no matter what you do, your soul never seems fed or satisfied. Maybe it’s your job or a relationship that’s keeping you down and confused about your true desires and the search seems endless. This is when creativity comes in very handy or talking it out with a trusted friend. Feed your hungry soul and quench that thirsty heart of yours! Just try to be around people who actually feed your soul and not eat it! That completely defeats the purpose.
And just so you know, anything soul-sucking needs to go immediately.
One of my favorite author’s and life coach, Danielle LaPorte says we should make goals with a soul. In other words, strive for the things we desire that make us feel good. Goals are great but are sometimes too much work if you’re not that interested in them. Is your goal a should or a want? Maybe we’re living our lives backward and inside out because if we put our desire ahead of our goal, it would probably be more achievable since we know it makes us feel good in the end. Follow the pull, not the push.
Other times you have to let go and throw fate into the water and see what happens next. However, sometimes, even water can’t wash away the pain, but when you’re hungry, you’ll do anything to feed it. This can be a good sign because that might prompt you to discover a new hobby, change careers, meet an old friend, pray from the heart, or take a trip somewhere new and exciting. We just want to connect with someone or something that makes us feel good. What makes you happy? When you find out, do that as much as possible.
When your soul is hungry, what is your go-to spiritual diet? What do you crave?
