Feeding our souls

Amongst many other things, Danish-Canadian Lene Andersen writes beautifully and takes equally as alluring photos from her seated point of view. Her health issues have also shaped her life. Lene's recent blog post about busy-ness captures succinctly the need to listen to your body, take time out and even be a better friend.

My momentum had become momentum for its own sake and I'd developed a habit that was as destructive to my health as an addiction. Being busy took up so much of my life that I had no time to be the kind of friend I wanted to be, hadn't stopped to be lost in the wonder of a green leaf for quite some time, my priorities were screwed up and the bank account that represents my physical and emotional health was heavily overdrawn. When something had to be taken out of my life to make room for something else, something absolutely crucial, I had taken out what sustains me. I had taken out the very things that fill up that bank account, recharge my emotional batteries and feed my soul.
