Take Time to do What Makes your Soul Happy

In this age of Nutraceuticals and empowering supplements for the physical body let us NEVER forget to feed our soul – the very essence of our “being”.  Our Soul is who we TRULY are and all the supplements and Vitameatavegimin in the world cannot support what may be missing.

“Instead of obsessing, imagine what your life could look like, the shape it might take, if you shifted your focus to bringing joy to your heart, giving fresh energy to your day, and to feeding your soul.”  – Janice Taylor (

I feed my soul with Music, Gardening, Cooking, Hiking and serving others.  How do you feed your soul?

“Our Lady” Janice Taylor has 25 great ideas:

25 Ways to Feed Your Soul

1.  Dream with your feet, bust a move, get your groove on, and… dance to the music!

2.  Dissolve your inhibitions in a smokin’ hot bubble… bath!

3.  Become a fan of the funny.  Go “Sky High” with cartoonist Tommy Rudmose.

4.  Light a candle, and then light another, and notice… nothing is lost when one candle lights the next.

5.  Be the fountain of gladness and make everything and everyone near to you freshen with smiles.

6.  Look beneath the iceberg; investigate what lies below as only one-seventh of “you” is above water.

7.  Breathe into the moment, for this very moment is the only one you have for sure.

8.  Pray with the rocks, the pebbles, the sand, as they are still and silent.

9.  Read, read, read — lest you yield yourself to ignorance.

10.  Play feverishly! Experience the world and the universe as the playground that it sure is, one for exploration and discovery. Explore, discover, have fun!

11.  Whip up a bowl of bliss. Combine one cup of the poetic with one cup of the mysterious. The perfect complement to any meal: filling, delicious goodness.

12.  Connect the dots from the past straight into your future, one to the next, and behold… the big picture revealed.

13.  Send the dark cloud on its way, as it is but an illusion, a billow upon billow upon a billow.

14.  Open your eyes to the sweetness of the day.

15.  Make a mistake. It is, after all, one way of doing something and better than doing nothing.

16.  Remove the stops one at a time until there is no stopping you.

17.  Love in general… round people, skinny people, tall people, short people, all people.

18.  Look for the bright spot. It is right there, to your right. (No, your other right.)

19.  Sigh a deep sigh and start anew.

20.  Arrange flowers in good cheer, with a smile on your face, and listen for the earth to joyously laugh with you.

21.  Sing with the birds after the storm.

22.  Begin your day in delight; end it in wisdom.

23.  Do not “think fun.” Feel your way straight into it — have fun.

24.  Do not worry about your worries. Worry is neither preparation nor a magic pill that wards off bad happenings.

25.  Smile at the messiness of life and then straighten your desk, toss the old magazines.


I’ll be back… going off to sing with the birds after Monsoon Storm :)

Serenity Stewart Guest on The Self Improvement Show

self-improvement-showSerenity was interviewed on the March 20, 2014 episode of Dr. Irene Conlan’s The Self Improvement Show. The episode description is below and you can listen to the episode for free.

“Serenity Stewart is a top jazz singer—a seasoned entertainer described as “Sultry, a little bawdy, and very talented…a stunningly talented songstress with a naughty twinkle in her eye and plenty of curves all around.” She has two successful albums and a very busy performance schedule including a recent tour in Europe. In 2005, after suffering a brain aneurism and writing a will because she was sure she was dying, she surprised everyone, especially herself, by making a full recovery. During that recovery she realized it was time for her to live her dream. She will tell us her story, share her music, and give us insights into how she raised four children on her own, managed to earn a successful living in something that was not her passion, and what it’s like to finally live her dream. This is one show you won’t want to miss.”

Best stated by this man who lived the “Golden Age of Film and Music” David Raksin….

” so many people hark back so eagerly to the music we composed for the great romantic movies of the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s. for within that music remains the last unexplored treasure of real melody, as we have known it all our lives. And that time may have been the last time when composers dealt openly and affirmatively with the life-sustaining idea of love — in terms comprehensible to the great audience”. David Raksin
