What’s Your Spirit Animal?

I’m thinking Wolf or Tiger for myself. What about you? Which do you think fits you?

A spirit animal is a representation of different characteristics and skills. I like to explore this type of mythology because I find it very uprising when you can refer to yourself through an animal like a panther which symbolizes astral travel, reclaiming your power and guardian energy. Spirit animals can be used as motivation in everyday life by you trying to live up to your animals meanings and prove them to be correct. I’ve researched this list of animals with their significance so you too can find your spirit animal! Comment below which animal represents you.

Life and Death – One-liner Wednesday #1linerWeds

A little something in the spirit of Halloween:

“The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and the other begins?” – Edgar Allan Poe

Exercising the Body, Mind, and Spirit – Stream of Consciousness Saturday (Body)

While I was out this morning, I passed a few people who were out jogging. One lady in particular was a little on the chunky side, and all I could think was, “Yes, you really need to be doing that.”  A bit rude, yes. Then again, I’m not really one to speak, either. I could do with a bit of exercising myself, and though I know that, I have a hard time actually doing it. I can blame it on my being a writer, sitting at the computer a lot and all, not just writing, but spending time on social media so my name gets out there. But a lot of it just being lazy. Sometimes I’ll decide to start exercising, and do it for a couple days, but my follow-through always tends to fall short.

But that also got me thinking about how it’s important to not only exercise the body, but the mind and spirit as well, and to keep them balanced.  As General Patton said, “An active mind cannot exist in an inactive body.” And we all know how harmful stress can be to us, both physically and mentally, and how better we feel when we are relaxed and at peace. We need to keep all three – body, mind, and spirit – balanced to really be healthy.
