If you live in the deep south you know what I mean when I say, “soul food”. We love our greens and cornbread, fried chicken and fried green tomatoes. Lord, makes me hungry just typing the words. Soul food brings us something we all desperately need. Soul Food brings us comfort. I feel sorry for those who have never experienced the comfort and love that comes from “soul food”.
This blog is not about food.
Most people long to make a difference in the world. There are very few people that don’t wish to make a difference in some way or another. I know I do! I long to know I somehow helped people.
In the last few years my nose has been to the grindstone cleaning up a company where I currently work. I don’t get much “soul food” there. My definition of soul food is when someone that you have helped shows you deep appreciation in some form or another. It is a wonderful experience when someone speaks deep into your heart and soul. It is the best elixir in the world to know you made a difference in someone’s life.
This week a woman I coached/counseled over seven years ago from South Carolina sent me the following message on Facebook, “Hey there. For some reason I was thinking back to the first conversation I had with you 7 or so years ago, when you were counseling. It still stands out as a day when something shifted for me, and I started being more confident in who I am. Thank you!”
My heart needed to hear this so bad. I was so hungry for “Soul Food”. Thanks Rosa, for making me feel like I made a difference. Love you!
Where are you getting your “Soul Food”?
