Nurturing Your Spirit
Do you ever wonder about the other "YOU ?"
The one that speaks to you quietly, the one
that helps you find inspiration. It is in your
spirit that the feeling of love and peace reign
supreme. It is where happiness is free to embrace you.
It is the voice that shouts the emptiness of your life,
despite all the trappings of luxury that you surround
yourself with. It is the loneliness that overwhelms
you , calling to you to wake up. There's more to
life than wallowing in your misery. It's your
spirit starved for attention and love.
Ever wonder who you truly share the heights of joy,
or the depths of pain and sorrow, when everyone else
is out of reach ? Reach out within yourself.
What gives you strength, courage and empowerment?
Why does negative self-talk feel magnified especially
in your solitude?
We all have a Spirit, if you would stop, listen and nurture it.
It will not lead you astray. Negative vibrations weigh you
down, because the spirit does not want to have anything to
do with your negative attitudes. It serves you no purpose.
It's almost trying to tell you, Hey, if you pursue this course,
you're on your own. Listen to me and I'll show you a
Do not confuse connecting with your spirit with denial.
To acknowledge your spirit steers you clear of the mental
chaos and confusion that magnifies the trials, obscures the
solutions, clouds your judgment and drags you deeper
in the mire. Denial is the result of being disconnected
with your spirit.
Problems, trials, disappointments are part of life. No matter
how dark the clouds are, through blizzard, storm and tsunami,
the sun always comes up, bright and warm.
Think about it, ask yourself, how can you nurture your spirit?
This is how I do it:
-Start and end my day with a prayer of gratitude.
-Meditate , stay grounded and live in the present.
-Today well-lived makes for a better tomorrow.
-Know that problems are but stepping stones to better times,
-Count my blessings, share what I can with others.
-Read inspiring books and quotations.
-Listen to soothing music,play the piano
-Appreciate nature's beauty
-Know that patience is a virtue,i.e., grin and bear it,
-Try to show compassion/ kindness, for everyone has their
own battles to fight.
-Let those I love know they are loved everyday.
-Let bygones be bygones
-Move on, for there's nothing I can do about what's past
but learn from it.
-Dream a bit.
