Soul Searching by The Everyday Mum

Soul Searching by The Everyday Mum

Your a Mum at a point in your life you want to understand yourself and what it is you are doing.
Your a Wife at a point in your life you want to know your marriage is what you expected.
Your a Woman at a point in your life trying to figure out if you still got it.
Your a Person at a point in your life wondering if who you are means something.

We know everything and everyone has a purpose. We know that we have a place in this world and yet not always understanding the point of it all. Finding the right words finding the perfect path, believing that you and where you have been and going means something.
The journey we travel has a purpose a reason and we are just the pawn traveling within it. We have to have faith in the journey and yet we still question ourselves every step of the way.
We can not speak for the men who will read this, though I suspect in some way as a human being he will have something similar to say when they are soul searching.

The question is, what is the point of all this. We grow up, we find that magical someone (or try to), we get married, we hope to or do have children, we watch them grow, we let them go, and then we live our lives where we left off all those years ago.
We search for answers, We have those random thoughts and we question everything – how we grew up, how we chose to live as adults, how we raised our children, and how we see ourselves throughout all of this.

There is no definitive answer to any of this. We know that all of this is apart of the past and we can only review it through memories and photos and stories. We search for answers and wonder if we will ever find them and understand them. We wonder why and we question everything. The point is that we can only be as good as we choose to be. We have to want to be that perfect person that everyone thinks is amazing. But does it matter what other people think. We all try very hard to and the silly thing is Everyone else is thinking the same thing as you.
So why do we find ourselves Soul Search, what does it mean to you exactly and why is it so important to feel we are successful in what we do. What is so significant in knowing. If we spend time searching and trying to understand what it is we are looking for, we begin to loose sight of the most important piece of ourselves and that is Living. We are all guilty of it, We all spend a degree of our lives searching for something. One significant rite of passage is “The Midlife Crisis”. We all hear about it and we all dread that time in our life. The thing is we you consider the topic of Soul Searching, this is something that we do at every point and every life event. So when we think of the dreaded “Midlife Crisis” , is it really a midlife crisis or is it simply another life event of Soul Searching. We have to realize that this is simply apart of our human experience. Everything that we discover, face, learn, try and understand is all part of what we chose to experience before we were born to this life time. Our life is the soul search, when we really look at ourselves and all that we are and all that we have experienced in our life is the search for satisfaction and the ultimate feeling we have reaching fulfillment.

Whether we are a parent, husband, wife, man, woman, educator, carer, business man/woman, an achiever, student. It doesn’t matter what we are or who we are, We have a purpose we have something to contribute. And whether we are Soul Searching or living “The Midlife Crisis”, we are who we are nothing we look for is going to change who we are without understanding that where we are now is a direct result of where we have come.

I think I answered my own question when I started writing and I believe that as part of human nature we are inquisitive and we will always be searching for something. We also have to remember that this is part of life we don’t always have control of how it will turn out. If there is anything we can walk away from this is follow our journey with an open mind and trust that there is a reason for the path laid before us. Love Yourself fully and trust your own judgement and most of all believe in yourself.

With Blessings

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

Beyond Materialism

Most people can understand the happiness that comes from purchasing something for oneself when we talk about needing some retail therapy. Can shopping truly improve our mood? Clinical psychologist Scott Bea, PsyD, affirms that shopping can have psychological and therapeutic benefits as long as it is done in moderation, according to research. Engaging in shopping activities, whether online or in person, can provide a psychological and emotional boost.

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

Soul Searching by The Everyday Mum

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Soul Searching by The Everyday Mum

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
