Feeding Our Hungry Souls

Today has been one of those days. I'm big and tired and I feel a little lost. I clean the house to have it dirtied just as fast and I wonder why I bother. I'm a little sad, but really for no reason. Today is one of those days where my soul is hungry. Give me purpose!

I came across this video of a local woman who is also a blogger. I've heard her story before and to see this really touched me. She and her husband survived a plane crash and this is a little bit about their life now. She was even on Oprah at one time. No matter what your religion or personal beliefs, there are really great lessons about life and family in this woman's story.




Just what my heart needed today. I really feel it is important to feed our souls daily with inspiration, motivation, or some form of meditation. Something to help us reflect on the big picture and realign ourselves with the present instead of always living in fear of the future. I'm not always good at doing this everyday, but when I don't, I feel my anxiety swallowing me whole.

Don't beat yourself up for not living in the present and being anxious about the future. It's a common dilemma that I go through everyday. It's gotten worse lately and as my therapist says I am "paralyzed by my anxiety". I refuse to believe that.

When you feel your anxiety swallowing you whole, do the opposite, try to swallow it. I know, much easier said than done....
i hope you feel better!!

Easier said then done is so true. My husband keeps reminding me that life is not a dress rehearsal, but days like today are so hard. I try to be more mindful of everything and sometimes that works. I think I'll follow your blog for a while to see how I feel. Amazing video.

I just found your blog the other day, and I am soo happy that I did. I am 24 and have been suffering with anxiety for my entire life. I have been working hard to manage it since I was 19 and first learned that I actually had anxiety. I can relate to every one of your blog entries.. it brings me such relief and hope knowing that I am not alone in this struggle. Today has been quite rough and anxiety ridden, but just reading one of your entries gave me such an immediate sense of relief and calmness, I am SO thankful for it! Thanks so much for sharing your stories and I will continue to actively follow your journey! Good luck!
