Soul Sunday

Five Soul Changing Lessons

1. Stuff is just stuff.

 The things we hold onto, the things we buy, what’s it all for? I need a bigger TV. I think I need more clothes. I definitely have to have that chair. So much stuff. Do we really need it?
In the event you ever decide to pack up and run away, what are you gonna do with all that stuff?
The less you have, the happier you will be.  Stuff is just stuff.

2. People are people no matter where you go.

How often do you wonder if the people in the Bahamas have a better life, or if the people in New York are more stressed, or maybe the people in Los Angeles really are richer? Who cares?
No matter where you go, everyone has the same problems. Work, life, kids, bills, sickness, poverty.
We’re all people and we all have stories. We are all on this planet with the same goals. We all live, breathe, laugh, play, cry, and die. Be kind to each other. Treat everyone the same—with respect and compassion—no matter where you are. We are all in this together.

3. The world is big and beautiful. Go see it.

Do you ever see the most amazing photos on Facebook and Instagram, and look at them in awe. Hard to believe those absolutely breathtaking places exist. And since they do why not get out of the town you live in and go see places.
Not everyone has a huge savings to use for travels around the world, and many of us can’t up and leave our lives for years, but we can venture out beyond the world we know, whether that means visiting a new city, a new state, or a new country.
If you want it bad enough, you’ll figure out a way to do it.

4. Things don’t need to be so complicated.

Who isn't guilty of making mountains out of molehills. Things that really annoy us, anger us, scare us, and just freak us out usually end up being easily managed anyway. Things are rarely as bad as we make them out to be.
 Relax. Just relax. Life is awesome.
Easier said than done. But life truly is a lot easier and more enjoyable when you relax, keep your eye on the big picture, and focus on the good things instead of stressing out about everything that seems bad.

5. Life is short. Be brave and take chances.

Get out of your box and go do things. Many things. Adventurous things, scary things, fun things, not so fun things (because you won’t know that they aren’t fun until you try them).
Seriously, get out of your comfort zone. There is a plethora of adventures awaiting you.
