Soul Protection Program

April 21st, 2009

Sometimes I wish I had a safe place to stash my soul when I leave for work. Because in this economy, it’s tough out there for a soul. How do I keep myself from becoming calloused or hopeless when people I work with are laid off and left hanging out to dry? What happens when my creativity gets a dry mouth and a bad case of the Dreads in the middle of a project? And how do I plunge wholeheartedly into a brainstorming session when I feel brain dead from so much uncertainty and flux? I want my soul to survive hard times without going into hiding or disguising its true voice, but it’s an everyday struggle and I’m constantly questioning my decisions and choices. And sometimes, the only answer I come up with is “ice-cream”.

    I think that ice cream is the perfect answer.

    hmmm… a place to hide your soul…Perhaps it’s a matter of allowing your soul to go frolic in the stars while you are going those earthly things.

    I am happy to say I am on a "popsicle" binge this week. It sounded healthier than ice cream until I read the ingredients and that big bad High Fructose Corn Syrup was number one! *&%$ it all anyway!!

    “Ice cream is good for the soul”

    Caveat: some flavors are better than others depending upon the need to use it.

    Keep it real. Others you work with are suffering the same thoughts and consequences and anxieties. Push on together…
