I’ve been in a much better mindset as of late.
Despite mistakes being made (as normal, it’s life), I haven’t been so hard on myself.
I’ve realized, I’ve learned, and I’ve been patient.
Grinding, as some might say.
Also, I’ve been writing (shocker).
I have been writing down little things each day, reminders of who I am, what I want to do, where I want to go.
And as I reflect on each little reminder and listen to some music, I remind myself of the thought that keeps me sane every time:
“Be your own soul.”
We are all built completely differently. Our psychological makeup can be altered by things around us, but to me, our souls are all fed to the whole by a different puzzle combination.
Our soul might have 4, 40, or 4,000 pieces to it, but each individual can satisfy the soul in a different way.
The pie is always different.
And you know why that is such a welcoming reminder?
Not only is it always okay to be yourself, but that’s also what we SHOULD do.
We should all strive, each day, to satisfy each piece of our soul and be our own.
Life would certainly be no joy and no fun if we ignored our soul and kept it hungry.
I also am reminded that just because I am feeding my soul, doesn’t mean it is sunshine and rainbows 24/7.
Pursuing the utmost of each piece of soul satisfaction is a lot of work; a grind.
So as I have said many times, it is always a grind.
So why not make it a good one?
Why not make it a grind for your soul?
Do it for yourself.
We all owe it to our soul to take care of it as best we can.
To me, our soul is us.
Our soul feels, experiences, acts… it is everything!
With that vision in mind, it probably isn’t such a bad idea to try and take care of something that comes across as everything.
I made sure that I have a plan, too.
I made a Word document titled “Life Outlook”, and in that document, I have slowly been adding little reminders and pieces of information that give me guidance on how I can continue to let my soul glow.
I am going to keep at it and let my soul slow brighter than ever.
I encourage you to do the same. 🙂
