Wow! I had such a graet response to yesterday’s post that I feel I should continue with that topic! Thank you again to everyone for your comments and questions, I am learning so much!
As I reflect on the success of this last post it’s interesting that when I started this blog I thought it was so important to research and read up on whatever topic I chose to write about that day but yesterday’s post just felt like something on my mind that I wanted to think about outloud! I was going with the flow, so easy and obviously so right!
In order to honour the song of your soul you first need to know what that song is. A friend asked what I have changed in order to do this. It’s through small things like honouring that I love to learn… and I love to share my excitement of learning. I used to hide that somewhat because somewhere along the way I understood that to be an undesirable quality. I used to worry about my personality, questioning myself “do I talk to much? am I interesting enough?” and now I realize that if I listen to my soul then I know clearly when I have something that I want and need to say and I feel good when I follow that through to say it even if no one else is speaking.
I still don’t have it all figured out! I still sometimes catch myself wanting to be something that I’m not, or at least that I’m not right now. Lately it has been that I want to be a runner again. But I’m just not… at least right now, and that’s ok.
Probably the biggest difference that I’ve made in my life in order to follow the rhythm of the song of my soul is time with myself and balances for myself. Taking a bit of time throughout the day (literally seconds sometimes) to check in and ask “how do I feel in this situation? Why do I feel that way? Am I honouring my feelings through what I’m saying or doing? What lesson am I learning right now”. I used to want to help everyone else with balances and I am realizing that I can be so much more helpful to others when I take that time for myself. It’s part of the reason I started this blog. 🙂 If we each take that time to balance something for ourselves every day it gives us that reason to take those minutes to get quiet, and listen.
The more we listen to our song, the easier it is to follow and the easier it is to dance!
So… I would love to hear how each of you try to listen to the song of your soul! Please comment on this post with how you do that so that we can all learn from it!
And perhaps because time often feels difficult to come by the perfect balance for today is:
There is always enough time to listen for and honour the song of my soul.
I can’t wait to hear from everyone! -Lindsey
