Care and Feeding of the Soul

Soul/spirit is a nebulous concept, but is the essence of who we are. Our spirits need care and feeding just as our bodies do. So how do we do this?

In a world that seems to be coming apart at the seams, it’s important to focus on self. This is not selfish by any means; if we don’t take care of ourselves, how will we have the strength to take care of anyone else? It’s important to take time out every day and do something we love. Sometimes it’s as simple as a few minutes by ourselves just sitting, or walking, or whatever it takes to just be. Enjoy a sunrise or sunset; a beautiful painting; soothing music; a cardinal in the snow; a simple house sparrow wallowing in the dust. All of these can be food for the soul. What feeds your soul?
