How to Nourish Your Soul

When was the last time you nourished your soul?  Many of us in the world are over-stressed, under paid, work long hours, get less sleep than desire, and usually lack the exercise needed to sustain ourselves from day-to-day.  When was the last time you nourished your soul?  Many of us are over-stressed, under paid, work long hours, get less sleep than desire, and usually lack the exercise needed to sustain ourselves from day-to-day.  To move through the day with a sense of inner strength and a clear head, we must (not should) nourish our selves daily and then again weekly.  It really doesn't take long at all.  
I take an Epsom salt bath everyday to relax my body, to release toxins, and to just chill.  It's my "look forward to" every single day!  It doesn't take long, perhaps 15 minutes at most; but it gives me so much.  Weekly, I like cook a different meal; I like to be creative in the kitchen.  I don't have the time everyday; but I do try to fit in the creativ…

What I can say about sexual abuse is that there …
