Wherever you stand, be the Soul of that place…Rumi
I have discovered that when you have to empty your head of it’s thoughts that writing them out is helpful. Last night I had to get something out of my head and off my heart that I couldn’t sleep so I went to my computer and just wrote. After I got my thoughts on screen and pixels it made getting to sleep much easier. They say write your dreams and ideas out when they come to you and I would have to agree with this. A late night writing session is very therapeutic.
Today I spent some time unpacking some stuff from the luggage of my heart and soul. I don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner. Journaling independent of one’s blog is a good way to get your thoughts out of your head and onto paper or pixels. Your experiences shape who you are and if they can help someone else then its a good thing. Now not everything has to or should be shared, everyone is entitled to keeping things close to home. You owe it to yourself to unpack things to get it off your shoulders.
Perhaps I need to do more exploring things rattling around in my head using a word processor vs. WordPress. A private stream of consciousness can help you organize your thoughts and to make sense of things that trouble your soul. Many of you do this already so this is old hat, for me this is a new thing I hope to do more of because I find writing stuff out can help me make more sense of it all.
Always choose to be positive. Even when you aren’t feeling it. Everyone has a light they can shine. Pick positive, it’s good for the soul.
It’s sad when family and friends have ailments of the heart and soul. Anytime there is suffering it is a reminder of how fragile we really are. When one person hurts it involves others too who are concerned and care for them. There are conditions people battle for years and require intensive care. Some friends of mine carry a heavy burden and I ask for God to help them through this. May we all have peace in our hearts and soul.
