Soul Food Monday! - An Inspirational Link-Up #21

Man is the soul that uses the body as an instrument of self-expression.
Hola Readers! Hope this morning everyone is having a great rise along with a BIG appetite for life where ever in the world you may find yourself today. A life filled with excitement and prosperity!   Acknowledging first that we are more than just a body is a good start to healthy wholeness.  Let's take time to feed the soul.  We feed our bodies with healthy foods to get enough energy and nutrients for optimal growth and development.  We feed and stimulate the mind with books, movies, plays and games for personal and creative development.  The same principal applies to feeding the soul.  It is just as important to feed the body as it is to feed the soul!  After all, the soul is the core of who we are!  It is who we are.  My own experiences of honoring my soul has helped me make this connection with my very soul.  And my life is so much richer in so many ways I could not have even imagined.  This is why I refuse to believe that we are just here to work, eat, sleep and die.  Yes, these are inevitable experiences we live as human beings, but we are spiritual beings as well.  So join me every Monday with a different food for the soul.
This week's feed on......Standards
This week I'd like to try something new.  I'd like to share my readers' comments, thoughts of inspiration. To me it is very rewarding and enriching when I receive comments or thoughts from my readers.  It is inspiring to me.  So this week I will be sharing a personal thought I received from one of my readers.  She is not a blogger, just a soul who from time to time pops in to express herself.  Her name is Neysi.

Standards...by who's should I live?
By the one which states my material possessions do not meet their criteria? 
My house, my car, even my clothes are up for judgement just because of what you think you see. 
But what about what you're NOT seeing. 
What about the peace, the love, the joy in my heart? 
What about the sincerity of my embraces and the many times my calmness helped to fill you with understanding? 
What value does true kindness and concern hold for you? 
I will take God's over man's any day. 
For God doesn't ask us to boast of our belongings but to give to those in need. 
He doesn't judge me by what I have, but by who I am. 
Why can't people do the same? 
How lost we live in this world that makes us think we HAVE to have this or that, possessions are a must. 
Have yours while you are here. 
I'll keep mine where they belong, already stored in heaven. 
The ones who truly know and love me accept me with what I have and love me anyway. 
That's peace of mind and heart for what one truly possess.
Poetry...reality...just being me.

Wishing everyone a magical Monday and a week full of love, laughter and excitement!

  1. Hi Mayra! Comments are the best. I love it when someone takes the time to write a good one. And, wow, this reader of your blog really did just that. It's rare for comments to be poetry. This one is just that. I can see why you would post it as your inspiration for the week!

  2. Love that you blog about self care and acceptance. It's so important to focus on the self, which people often forget to do. It's so hard not to compare ourselves to others; this is something I struggle with daily. It's so easy to do that, even though I know each one of us is on our own unique journey.

  4. Such a relatable post this week. Don't worry about anyone but yourself, that's my advice. Your standards are the right ones.
