This week Soulful Sunday becomes Soul Spaces.
Love in its essence is spiritual fire.~ Seneca
I’ve decided to change the name of this series to Soul Spaces to better reflect the idea of feeding our souls.
There are almost infinite ways to feed our souls. We each must learn what activities, people, and places nurture our spirit. Nature, family, creativity, and meditation are some common ways. Without being tied to a particular day, I can post anytime my heart is called to love. And what better way to nurture our souls than to celebrate love in its many forms.
I’ve been taking more time to nurture my body, mind, and soul this month and the roots are starting to grow. I feel a love coming alive inside me. It’s been a long cold winter, lasting more than 8 years. I’m ready to love. To love my self, to love others, to love a partner, and to love life. I’m back to watching sunsets as a way to celebrate life with gratitude and presence. I’m spending more time in meditation. I’m intending to spend more time on exercise and in nature. And I’m reading books, watching shows, and doing things that feed my soul.
I’ve always loved dancing, but haven’t danced publicly for a long time. In my 30s, I discovered the joy of dancing for myself. I would dance around my living room, creating a feeling of union with the music, almost as if the music is dancing me. Lately, I’ve been considering joining a local swing dance group. Meanwhile, I’m watching flashmob videos on YouTube. 🙂 I especially love all the creative marriage proposals that include flashmobs and dancing. Maybe I’ll meet my forever woman at one!
Love is the shortest distance between two hearts. ~ musebrad
Here is one of my favorite proposals; for the touching story, photography, music, and heartfelt expressions of love between Mike, Elizabeth, and Michael Jr. When Mike found a building named Grace in Bryant Park (which is Elizabeth’s middle name), he knew it was time to propose and where!
This video is one of the most creative and lighthearted flashmob proposals I’ve seen. And like many of these proposals, it’s paired to “Marry You” by Bruno Mars. From Bruno, Amy, Issac, and the gang to you and yours, enjoy!
If you’re ready for more love, here is a whole website devoted to the Best Marriage Proposals!
Will you marry me?
