Honoring Your Soul

sometimespaper

In other news – Writing Day 24 – The soul knows.  As I was looking over a great deal of writing i did a few years ago, I was surprised. It was really creative, funny, and interesting (if I do say so myself). Then the block fell on me and it all just stopped. I neglected honoring my soul and became  involved with someone I had absolutely no business being involved with.  I knew what I was getting into, and still…I did. It is something that I think contributed directly to how devastating the writer’s block became.

Maybe my creative soul was angry with me and disappointed in me, or maybe I put it away for safe keeping? I’m not sure, I just know, it was gone for a while.

That’s not the only thing that happened, during that time I was also diagnosed with a progressive chronic illness.  There were some weeks where I went to a different doctor everyday. That was one of the most difficult times in my life.

I continue to heal from that time, I consistently aim to work on my creative soul’s safe place.

I just realized that perhaps my creative soul has returned to me, but it is in the devotionals that I write now, I think my soul has found its safe place there.  I’m not who I used to be. Every word I write is another pillow for my soul.
