What is it that nourishes the soul?
This is a marvelous question to ask any day, and in relation to any life choice. I have put the question to quite a few people. Here are some responses:
Puppy breath
swing dancing like my father taught me
beach time
no plans and a good book
trees
hugs
drinking the rain
the surprising intimacy that occurs between people when you risk stepping out of your comfort zone
Marines who despite their training, still cry
finding just the right present for someone you care about
noticing the first signs of spring before it’s obvious
feeling wonder in the eyes of a child
sea salt baths
the smell of earth when working in the garden
committing poetry
ten minutes of direct sunlight
journaling
being stretched beyond my previous limits
the smell of fresh-baked bread
sitting with a tree
swimming until I become a merman
making it up as I go along
writing one page I’ll dare to read to a friend
a sea breeze
a frendly black dog
a dream that wakes me up
a secret handshake from the universe
the taste of fresh raspberries
a happy dog
making love
chocolate and wine
the sound of the waves
cleaning out and organizing clutter
   
digging in the dirt
planting things
swinging in a swing or hammock
love
laughing till you can hardly breathe
Are you ready to play?
    What is it that nourishes YOUR soul?
    Quick – write your list. Don’t sweat this, but remember that your answers need to come from a deeper place than your left brain, and if they are truthful responses your heart and your gut will approve them. Feel free to share your thoughts on the Comments thread here.
