Our Wednesday Facebook feature always gets lots of attention. Our focus is giving everyday words an inspiring spin. Don’t think a word can change your life? Maybe you just need a new powered up “meaning”! Watch the Soulspring Groups’ Facebook page each Wednesday as we post a new word with an inspired definition!
Here’s a summary of the WOW (Word of the Week) words for September…
MULTI-CHARGER: In this day and age it’s not out of the ordinary for every home to be equipped with one; a contraption we purchase in an attempt to clear the clutter associated with the charging all the cell phones, the iPads, the Kindles, and the Bluetooth.
However, have you equipped yourself with a “personal” multi-charger? Time is a hot commodity these days and wouldn’t it be awesome to do one thing that powers you up on multiple levels? Perhaps a morning walk (charging your body and clearing the mind), reading an inspirational book (offers wind-down time and powers your emotions), or taking a class on a topic you’re passionate about (taking time for you and nourishing the brain). What are some activities you could incorporate into your life as a sort of “personal” multi-charger?
WAITING: For most of us, waiting for something is far from what we want to be spending our time doing. Whether it is waiting at the Post Office, in line at the grocery store, to be seated at a restaurant, or for a red light to turn, for most of us it’s usually enough to raise our blood pressure a bit. Seems like such a waste of time, doesn’t it? Until of course when we’re reminded that everything is happens in perfect timing. Perhaps the red light saves you from being clipped from a driver two blocks down the road, or the extended unemployment is keeping you available for that perfect job that’s just around the corner. Remember, patience is a virtue and the next time you find yourself waiting in line is the perfect time to master it!
SPEED BUMPS: You know what we’re talking about here…You’re cruising along, not a care in the world, things are going great and then…CA-CHUNK…speed bump. They slow us down and disrupt the good thing we have going on, however, it’s important to remember that speed bumps are there to keep us safe and protect us from going too fast for conditions. We have speed bumps in life, too; those signs that something isn’t quite right. A time for reflection might be necessary to decide if you’re truly on the correct path, or are rolling along too fast. Speed bumps are life’s way of saying, “time to be aware and slow down just a bit.” There will always be obstacles in your life. Instead of seeing them as a negative, think of them as a tap on the shoulder and reminder for you to take a step back.
SUPER POWER: What are your super powers? Oh, come on…we all have some. It’s just that most of us never think of our unique skills, talents and abilities in quite that way. Your ability to see the bright side of everything…SUPER POWER. Your knack for telling funny stories…SUPER POWER. Your ability to always find the perfect gift…SUPER POWER.
Each of us was created with a unique combination of “strengths”. Heck, even our weaknesses combine in just the right way to contribute to our greatness. Through life’s trials and challenges we hone our powers and soon we’re ready to save the world (or at least our part of it)! We turn frowns on end, heal heartache with a smile, dam tears at their source, and leap problems with a single bound.
So you’re not Wonder Woman; you’re super just the same! We would love to know…what’s your SUPER POWER? Please share below…
