I asked someone in a conversation last night what feeds his soul and got a really great answer in response.¿ It made me smile, and think ... and wonder what other people might say to the same question.

I know for me, a few of the things that fill me up include art that really moves me, and a great book that is so succelent that I start reading really slowly as I'm almost finished with it because I don't want it to end.

I love the way it feels to be in an airplane, especially during take-off.¿ Or time with people I love - dinner with my brother last night or a conversation last week with my nephew, who wanted to tell me all the things he was doing. That's when my heart is really full.

What does it for you?

Thanks, Oz :)

And thank you, everyone ... all your answers reminded me of so many things I'd forgotten; the memories taste very sweet.

Love the topic One2One :)

¿

Had to think about this one to really define it and not mix it up with things that satisfy me in other ways.¿

¿

My soul food would have to be the times that I have been able to make a difference or impact¿in some way and¿changed someone's life for the better.

¿

Now¿this could be¿my family, friends,¿the people I work with or teach, and even at times someone that I have touched here.¿ LOL¿(keep it clean) :)

¿

This also includes¿myself¿and¿making sure I read, watch or listen to those things that will help and inspire me to become a better person.



Life is only as wonderful as you think it is.

What truly feeds my sould is spending time with my two little nephews. No matter how hard of a day I had or what kind of mood I'm in, after I spend time with them I leave with the greatest feeling of joy in my heart.

Time spent with friends/family, music, a good book, laughter/humour all feed my soul. Nothing like the pitter patter of raindrops, frost sparkling on the sunlit tree branches, a cold crisp night where you can hear the slighest sound outside, smells of market, family bbq or bonfire with smores - mmmmm. So many things feed my soul without even mentioning touch as all these senses "touch me" in different ways as they all make me feel good inside. It's whats inside that counts.

Far too many things to name them all, but I'll name just a few in no particular order. Driving with the music up and the windows down on a gorgeous summer day. Watching fireworks with people I love. Being hugged. Watching the ducks on a nearby pond. Playing with kittens and puppies. Spending time with good friends and family. Witty conversation. And, like someone else mentioned, a good laugh!!!

Sitting around a roaring firewhile camping while¿ you are talking with freinds and , while¿ sitting there sharing good food (and a few adult beverages too.) Sitting out on a calm lake watchng the sun rise over the calm waters and the ducks stirring from their roosts while fishing.

What feeds my soul.. Simple things, not external.¿ Wrapping myself in an old robe just as it comes out of the dryer and it's still hot.¿ Sunlight coming to my bed to welcome me to the morning.¿ Smelling fresh coffee as I wake up still in bed.¿ Walking in the rain, splashing puddles of water.¿ Romance novel with sexy passages.¿ These things feed my soul, the ones you mentioned feel my heart.

¿

My heart everyone close to me knows.¿ My soul is my own.¿ It's my secret garden, it's things I do for myself and little delights I wouldn't admit without the cover of anonymity... that's why I'm saying them here.¿ They are things too simplistic to be mentionned or too embarassing to admit.

¿

The tacky song we all sing and dance to... but would never admit liking to anyone,¿because it would destroy the image we project to other... feeds my soul.
