I remember reading
when I was in 6
grade. Phew, what a quest! I knew it was just a story, but I remember my little middle school brain feeling a tiny bit overwhelmed by the journey.
And the funny thing is, I
sometimes feel overwhelmed when I look at my own little journeys in life. I’m no Bilbo Baggins, but once my brain realizes the grandeur of the task ahead of me, my eyes start to glaze over and my mind goes into spaz attack mode.
But I know that even the largest, most difficult of quests
be broken down into smaller chapters for success. Or, if you to write a blog, (as I just so happen to do!) smaller posts!
And with this, ladies and gentlemen, I will introduce to you the newest feature on the Soultiply blog – The Mind, Body, & Soultiply Quest!
Four years ago, when my boyfriend and I started dating, I sat him down and told him the blunt, honest truth. I told him, “I cry. A LOT.
And I mean a lot.
I cry when I’m upset, I cry when I’m happy, I cry when I stub my toe, I cry when I’m stressed. Sometimes, I cry just because I haven’t cried in a while. But I need you to realize, just because I’m crying does not mean that the world is going to end. Do you understand and accept this?” Luckily for me, he did. Crying was part of the contract.
Because I am proud to say that I recognize I am a highly emotional person. And I own it! And if you are having difficulty in day-to-day situations because of your disposition, or you feel guilty for being emotional–breathe a sigh of relief, because IT IS possible to succeed as a highly emotional person. Even if you don’t consider yourself emotional, but you spend lots of time around people who are, there are tips and tricks that you can use to navigate the ups and downs of your relationships.
Somewhere in Boerne, Texas exists a 1995 Kindergarten time capsule.
My kindergarten teacher made a video time capsule of our class, with the promise that it would be revealed 13 years later at our high school graduation. For the time capsule, we were asked what we wanted to “become” when we grew up. I said I wanted to “become” a movie star…and it
remained my truth for the next 16 years
We were five years old; we had big plans and big dreams just waiting to unfold. We were young, but we realized that we were confined by childhood, that life would somehow “begin” at some later date when we were older, and then we would have a chance to “become” something new.
I never saw the time capsule (my guess is that no one had a VHS player to show the video!); I was in Georgia and off to New York before I could give it another thought.
But the idea of “becoming” has always stuck with me. What does it mean to “become”? Is there magic hidden in the transformation? How do you know when you’ve got there? What do you do then?…
