Soul Food Monday! - An Inspirational Link-Up #38

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.
I moved into my new home back in January and it wasn't until recently that I started furnishing the place.  The only room that was furnished when I first moved in was my bedroom.  I really don't know why I waited a long while other than I've really become a minimalist.  When I left my last home, in Kansas, I left everything behind to my daughter to sell or donate.  I've learned that possessions do not bring happiness, they are just material things.  I've had the 2-story house, 2 car garage, 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2 boats, etc, etc.  I've also been homeless...yep you heard right....homeless.  And I wouldn't trade my experiences for anything in the world.  My experiences have made me who I am and through them I have learned the important things in life.  What matters is love, kindness, compassion, familia, friends and doing what's right for yourself and others.  And although I am grateful I have a place to come to after a hard days work to call my own, I've learned that home is really where the heart is.  And for this, I am blessed.

This week's feed on....finding home

  1. I am such a homebody, Mayra. I could not agree more. If only I could get to cleaning though. Then, home would be even better! :)

  2. I too am a real homebird and therefore I love these quotes today! I would very likely hardly ever go out if I was left to my own devices :)

    Thanks for linking up!
