A question for you.  What did you do today to feed your soul?

When we are down and hurting and when we are concentrating on the pain we have gone through sometimes we forget that there is something we could do to help our soul’s feel comforted in that moment when things are hard.  We could do something to love, care for and nurture ourselves.

Today prompted by reading a lovely meditation my favourite book  Tian Dayton’s One Foot in Front of the Other I thought of the things I did today to feed my soul and I thought of a gratitude practice of listing these things that would mean that the benefit of these lovely experiences could grow within my soul :

About luckyotter

This blog is my journal. I just choose to share it with the world instead of keeping everything inside my head. I'm a recovering Borderline and have also struggled with Avoidant Personality Disorder. I also have Complex PTSD due to having been the victim of narcissistic abuse for most of my life. I write mostly about narcissism, because I was the child of a narcissistic mother, and then married to a sociopathic malignant narcissist for 20 years. But there's a silver lining too. In some ways they taught me about myself. This blog is about all that. Not all my articles will be about NPD, BPD or other personality disorders or mental conditions. I pretty much write about whatever's on my mind at the moment. So there's something for everyone here. Blogging about stuff is crack for my soul. It's self therapy, and hopefully my insights and observations may help others too.

    Hey, Lucky! Did you know you have a Trump add on your blog but it’s cut off so it says “E America Eat Again” instead of his regular slogan. LOL!

    What I do for my soul? I find that acknowledging my pain and accepting it fully helps a lot. It’s really just a form of be-here-now which I consider the core of spirituality. I think pain isn’t a sensation. It’s our attempt to avoid a sensation or experience. Turning around and facing whatever is chasing one does great things.

      Oh God, I wish I could change some of these damn ads. ūüė° Unfortunately I can’t because I don’t choose the ads myself, WP does.

      I saw another one for some very risque lingerie yesterday, like you’d find in Frederick’s of Hollywood (do they still even exist?)
