Feeding my soul – blogging

At times I have struggled for air.  Breathe, breathe, this isn’t who you are and will this matter in a year or wait! 24 hours? When you feel yourself spiraling down over a comment, situation or individual. Realizing you have to pull yourself up before you hit the bottom. The majority of us have been there at some point.

I was walking (one of my favorite things to do ALONE) and thought “what feeds my soul?” I realized this was something I could, no should, tap into.  What better way to articulate my thoughts than to blog about it?

Blogging has brought me into an incredible community. I feel I have found my tribe. People who are creative, supportive and encouraging.  Yes, I have a blog by accident. Thank you Wanda.  But now I feel it is part of my journey and has pushed my boundaries in so many other areas.  Yes, blogging feeds my soul.

Reading, sharing and commenting in my community. Seeing blogging friends celebrate wins, disappointments, share their stories and feel a part of it. Having your “regulars” that you look forward to connecting with weekly. This feeds my soul.

People sharing intimate details with the hope that it will help someone else. You are not alone they are saying. Yes, this feeds my soul. Knowing that a diverse group of people all over the world are out there waiting and wanting to connect.

Tap into what feeds your soul. Go for a walk, meditate, talk to a friend and note how you feel. Are you at peace? Do you feel your body becoming calm? Are you feeding your soul?

You can always start now!

      It is not just writing the post but also reading others’ post and the whole community atmosphere of support and encouragement. That is a lovely visual when you click log in you’ve reached home. I agree. Thank you.

    Blogging feeds my soul, as well. It’s primarily because it gives me a reason to write. I’ve always wanted to write but no one in my circle was as enthusiastic about reading my work as I was about writing 🙂 And, it’s more fun when you connect with people who resonate – people on your same frequency!

      I am in the same boat here. I find blogging has helped me write more in other areas. Given me confidence what I have to say is worthy. Yes to the same frequency and connecting with an incredible community (you and rest of BUYB). Thank you.

    You’ve echoed so many of my own thoughts! Yes, blogging has pushed so many boundaries for me. I’m doing stuff now I would have probably scoffed at two years ago!

      Agree – me too. It has made me feel what I have to write about is worthy reading. Also exploring and pushing my boundaries through blogging I am living it just not thinking about it. If I am writing it and putting it in a post I am now activity living it and working on it. So keep blogging and pushing boundaries!!

    I so agree with this post! If we all found what resonated with our soul we’d have less time for conflict. We’d be too busy enjoying ourselves. Hopefully, this idea will catch on. 🙂

      I have had so many spin offs from it. Confidence being one to share other creative projects. I also feel like I have found my “tribe” in blogging. thank you.

    Blogging came to me quite unexpectedly and unplanned as life changed in so many ways. But it has given me a huge support network and friends in so many unexpected ways, and has led to me being able to give some support back, find new ways to be useful and find rewards in life. Thank you for dedicating this post to our lovely group on the final BUYB thread x

      I was accidental blogging also and now can’t imagine not doing it. Yes to a supportive network (incredible) and giving back (which you do as I have read your blog). BUYB as my first Facebook group blogging and it was amazing how supportive and encouraging everyone was. It was finding my tribe. So to continuing on and seeing where the next chapter takes us. Thanks for commenting and visiting.

      It was been an incredible ride. Sad about BUYB as that was the catalyst for me meeting and sharing. Thank you for being part of that journey and to more discoveries.
