Do you want to know how to give your soul some love? Go on adventures. Adventures take us away from our daily habits and let us experience something new. I find that they also help us become present and grateful again and boy does my soul love that. So for those reasons, I try to plan an adventure once a week.
Adventures don’t have to be extravagant. They don’t even have to be costly. Recently, my brother and I found this amazing forest near our house and explored it for almost 2 hours. It was fabulous and we plan to go back with our mom and have a picnic next time.
Growing up and becoming the person that I am today, I dealt with many bumps in the road. One of my biggest struggles was around not knowing how to deal with negative attitudes.
For a few years I found myself avoiding many people because of their attitudes and interests. I had a very hard time hanging out with so many people because I was afraid of their moods or current attitudes rubbing off on me. Anyone that would talk and complain about their problems…hell I completely shut you out for a while. Now is the moment where I must apologize for being so hard on you!
If I could describe my perfect morning, it usually starts off with a freshly brewed cup of coffee, and silence. I’ve always connected with the saying, “silence is golden”, because it is in silence, that I find myself at peace with life.
In a moment of silence, it can be very easy to reflect on what you’re grateful for. So this is what I am proposing that you do today: Find 5 mins in your day to sit down and think about what you love about your life. This could be anything you love…I love my new car…I love my hair…I’m grateful for my home and my friends…etc.
