The Soul Jar

We've all been there... unexpectedly feeling sad, lost or insecure without any apparent reason. Even the happiest of us fall victim to the emotions of a restless and uncontent soul.
 
As an introvert, I spend a lot of time simply reflecting on my life and often find myself searching the internet for inspiration. When I come across a quote or phrase that speaks to me, I usually realize that I already know the truth of the meaning, I simply needed to be reminded of it. 
 
That is what I hope to accomplish with this blog; to provide a thought-provoking, positive environment that will remind even the most unsure of people to believe in themselves and strive for what makes them happy. 
 
"Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, happiness dwells in the soul."
-Democritus

Keeping your Soul Jar Full

Upon googling 'Soul Jar', I stumbled across some interesting information. In the fantasy world, the Soul Jar is an object used to contain your soul in order to become immortal. As long as your soul is safe in this jar, you cannot physically be killed. Although, that’s not exactly what I had in mind when I envisioned my idea of ‘The Soul Jar’, it embodies a similar message.
 
As long as your ‘Soul Jar’ is filled with positive, reinforcing empowerment, it will be harder for the negativity of the world to bring you down. If we can feed our souls with the energy that it needs, we stand a better chance at having a more peaceful and satisfying life in this world.
 
Question is, how can we keep this jar full? 
 
Knowing the truth of something and empowering that truth is very different. For example, we all know holding grudges are unhealthy (easier said than done), but its not until I read the inspirational quote, "Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die", that I truly understand how self-destructive anger is. 
 
My goal is to touch on various topics that (in hopes) will be interesting and cause thought-provoking ideas that will make you understand your self-worth in this world, where you want to go in life, and what makes you happy... all keys to a happy, content soul. 
 
Happy soul, happy life!
