Its been a while since I last id this… about time I pulled my finger out again.

Being truthful in all my interactions;

making a difference within my community

making a stronger connection with my higher power.

 

Trying to get this back up and running, so this week is… Spiritual update:

Being truthful in all my interactions;

making a difference within my community

making a stronger connection with my higher power.

Spiritual wellbeing isn’t all about religion, or being religious.  In fact it is more about experiencing and integrating yourself in the world around you.

There are a lot of ways that you can do this, like expressing yourself through writing / art / music.  I write and do art to express myself, and currently the 100 Days Project is about my emotional connection and expressing it through art.

Having an interest or hobby and doing it on a regular basis.  I like Gardening.  It is really good for my soul when I can get out and garden.  It centres me, and helps me keep balanced.  Who knew that digging in the dirt could be satisfying on such a higher level.

Knowing and understanding your core values.  This is a key one that I think everyone should go back and look into from time to time, because your values can change.  Mine are Honesty, Integrity and Loyalty.  There are lots of values out there – I found this list on Colin Hiles website.  For me, life being lived honestly to yourself, being true to yourself (intrigity) and being loyal to yourself and those around you, will lead to a more fulfilled life.

Setting and achieving life goals are also part of the spiritual wellbeing.  Because of the success and the internal feelings of accomplishment.

I have been feeling very fulfilled spiritually lately, because I have been doing a lot of art.  And slowly getting back into working on my writing.  I haven’t been working within my community so much lately, but I have been in touch with individuals, checking in to make sure they are okay and coping with whatever is going on in their world.

And my walk with God is pretty much the same.  I pray.  I should do more, but I have that connection.  I’m not letting go – I know too much to feel uncomfortable turning my back on the Lord, but I also know that God isn’t a vengeful angry God he is so often portrayed as.  And maybe he is using me as an example in someone else’s life, just the way I am.

Next time will be a physical *shudders* update.  Until then, have a good week.
