attend to your soul

2014, Career, Inspiration, June, Religion

what would you do if you woke up one morning in a pool of your own blood? what happens when you have been to the doctors and all they can tell you is that your cut eye and broken cheekbone was a result of collapsing from exhaustion?

for arianna huffington that was a reality.

talk about a wake up call.

exhaustion. a cut eye and a broken cheekbone from exhaustion.

when i was thinking about a catchy ‘this has got to have meaning’ sorta headline for this blog, i knew i had to use the word ‘soul’. i think attending to one’s soul has a great positive impact on our lives, if not the greatest.

it took arianna huffington waking up in a pool of her own blood to recognize this. getting to that point to begin to understand what mattered most to her. and getting 4-5 hours of sleep, missing important events in her children’s lives {and so on} was no longer worth it. she began to unravel her soul {at least that’s what i’m calling it}.

while i am only a few pages into the book, i already felt just that more rejuvenated.

yes. perhaps these are things i already know. but i need to hear it again. and again. and again.

people often say that motivation doesn’t last. well, neither does bathing. that’s why we recommend it daily.

i’ve started my ‘attending to my soul’ journey by reading more. i used to be a book worm. and well, i need to go back to that.

it’s part of who i am.

next up, yoga.

call it meditation, call it prayer. whatever you call it, attending to your soul is becoming increasingly imperative in our ever-evolving technology-infused world.

i’m not a motivational speaker. and i’m not a book reviewer.

but i firmly believe in attending to your soul.

and all the difference it can and will make.

of course i absolutely had to buy a book and get it signed…
