Hello there Friend! Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful Weekend! And for my fellow Christians, I hope you had wonderful Easter Weekend!! I had a nice relaxing weekend which is exactly what I needed! It was so good for my soul!
Speaking of my soul, today I’m sharing I 5 things that currently are setting my soul on fire! I feel its so important to know the things that really speak to your soul. This way when you’re feeling “down” or off so to say, you can refer to what sets your soul on fire + get back to feeling great!
✨ Spending Time with God ✨
The most important one in my opinion! To me spending time with God is the best way to get back to feeling great because He created me ya know? When I spend time reading His Word + talking to him, when I’m still + focusing on Him I feel such hope + refreshed. The exact feeling I look for to set my soul on fire.
✨ Anything in Nature- Flowers, Sand, Water, Palm Trees, The Beach ✨
I LOVE palm trees! Probably what I have taken the most pictures of ha! But I also am known to stop when I see a beautiful flower + to find my way to the beach any way I can. Feeling sand beneath my feet, or walking barefoot in the grass sets my soul on fire. Nothing better in my opinion. Because I can’t get away to the beach as often as I’d like, looking at beautiful pictures of nature helps me feel better.
✨ Neutral Home Decor ✨
As beautiful as the bright vibrant colors are in nature, when it comes to my home, neutral color palette all the way. Bright whites, gold, sparkles, cozy textures, beige/wood colors, a bit of black + lots of glass. I feel that these colors + textures are very soothing + calming. Just what I need when I’m feeling not my greatest. It sounds silly but I also find looking at picture of neutral home decor is calming + inspiring.
✨ Pictures of NYC ✨
Oh NYC, you hold a soft spot in my heart! I love going to NYC. I know it sounds kinda counter productive as a something to calm + sooth the soul because of how busy it is, but it really does for me. NYC hold so many amazing memories for me. It has such a beauty + magic to it. From the beautiful sky scrapers, Central Park, 5th Ave, the Brooklyn Bridge to the Plaza Hotel, the pizza, the culture – it just sets my soul on fire. Going there is preferred but looking at pictures works too.
✨Photography + Photo Editing ✨
These have been a hobby of my for a while + I recently really got back into it. Taking photos + then editing said photos is my favorite past time, especially when I’m stressed. It’s a great way for me to let my mind go + focus on creating something of beauty. Photography to mean is more than just smiling into the camera. To me, photography is how we can freeze a perfect moment + immortalize it forever. We can freeze a moment of beauty forever. I take photos of everything + anything basically. I like to have options when I start to edit ha!
When I say photo editing- I mean everything from post processing, simply adding filters, or adding text + graphics. I also really enjoy creating the product boards I make for posts on Sparkle. I try not to change the image all together, just enhance its beauty.
