What is Soul Food?
I'm not talking cornbread, fried okra, or rice and beans, here. When it comes to soul food, I'm talking about more than actual, edible food. I'm talking about all of the things that feed you, inside and out.
psyche, inspiration, energy, essential nature
fuel, fare, daily bread, something providing energy
So, in talking about THIS specific soul food, I'm referring to...
The things that feed your mind.
The things that feed your body.
The things that feed your soul.
As responsible adults (who are functioning, contributing members of society) we spend a heck of a lot of time doing things that don't necessarily feed our souls (i.e. psyche/essential nature).
We don't always eat the right foods.
We don't always exercise.
We don't always nurture our hobbies and creativity.
In a sense, in doing all of the things we are supposed to do to be functioning, contributing members of society, we are starving our(selves)/essential nature.
Sure, we may go through the motions of life. Work obligations. Social obligations. Family obligations. Biological obligations (you know, like eating three square meals a day.)
But my question to you is...
are you starving?
I ask you because... well...
