WRAPPING IT UP
Morning folks, I had planned on blogging last night but after my AKB I had a bit of a fever and felt like CRAP! Before I went to class I was at the local Target where it was a MAD house, I only had to get a few things thank God because the lines were wrapped around the store. I am so glad I am DONE with my shopping, I wish you all good luck who are going out today to shop:)
TUESDAY-FEEDING YOUR SOUL
Well first I will start with the definition of the word Soul:
Definitions of soul on the Web:
- In many religions and parts of philosophy, the soul is the immaterial part of a person. It is usually thought to consist of one's thoughts and personality, and can be synonymous with the spirit, mind or self. In theology, the soul is often believed to live on after the person’s death, and some religions posit that God creates souls. In some cultures, non-human living things, and sometimes inanimate objects are said to have souls, a belief known as animism.
So in short the soul is something that no one can touch. It is deep inside a person which no one can feel or see. My husband once gave me the best comment I have ever gotten, he said, “I love your Soul”. At the time that he said it I didn’t really understand what he meant, but the more I understand about the soul, the more I am so amazed about how powerful that statement is.
So now that I have skimmed the surface of what the soul is, I would like to challenge you all in ways that you can FEED that soul. I believe everyone needs a healthy, balanced life, and a part of that is feeding your soul.
“Most of us make a list every week of what we need to fill our pantry. How about making a weekly grocery list for your soul as well?” I love this statement. It’s so true! It’s so easy, and so much fun! Making a Grocery List for your soul is a great first step toward honoring the needs of your inner self. Have anyone of you done this?
First, give some real time and thought to the activities or things you need in order to continue nourishing a conscious lifestyle.
“Now make a “shopping list” of the things you love, the things your heart and soul need. A morning set aside to garden? An hour alone? A long, hot bath? A half-hour to read poetry? A massage? Fresh flowers in your bedroom? A visit to your spiritual home, be it a church, synagogue, or spot in nature that inspires awe in you? A simple meal and heart-to-heart with a close friend? A trip to a museum or art gallery? A long walk in the woods?” –Green Living
All these ideas are wonderful ways to start feeding your soul, for a healthier and happier YOU!
2 DAY COUNTDOWN!!!!
I can’t believe there is only two days left until Christmas! I am getting so excited, with the scare of being sick last night I started to get stressed about being sick for the Holidays. I could tell I was getting sicker and sicker in class last night. I am so surprised I even made it through the whole class! When I got home hubby was the best doctor got me to take some medicine ( I hate taking medicine) and I felt so sick that he even blow dried my hair so I wouldn’t go to bed with a wet head! HOW AMAZING IS HE! When I got up this morning I felt 99% better! I slept in till 8!! Haven't done that in forever!
I made a yummy bowl of Pumpkin Almond Roca Oats:
I finished wrapping all the gifts before I went to AKB last night and made out our Christmas Dinner Menu. I may be making a few changes today.
