Welcome to the Soul Sisters Blog!

We’re three sisters on a mission to empower and inspire women everywhere to pursue their passions and achieve their dreams. Our story is probably not unlike your own; a tug at the heartstring, a feeling of wanting more from life, a desire to fulfill a divine purpose. It was these relentless yearnings that inspired the concept of Soulspring Groups.

When our souls open up (and they tend to quite often) we’ve got to share! We invite you to read our thoughts (and occasional rants) on women, empowerment, passion, destiny and life! Feel free to share your comments; we love to hear your thoughts (and rants) too! And, become an official follower! It's always fun to see the company we're keeping!

Unlikely Teachers

As we go through our day to day life we interact with many people; some pleasant and some, shall we say, not so pleasant. We’ve all been there . . . in a store, on the street, at a restaurant--we bump into the “crabby family”. Mom is yelling at kids, kids are yelling at each other, and dad is being not so nice to mom. We have the tendency to walk the other direction, turn the other way, anything to get away from the constant yelling and degrading talk.

Do you realize that these are special chosen individuals who come into our lives to teach us? What could these crabby, negative, unhappy people possibly teach us, you ask? Everything, if we let them!

Every person you meet has a story to tell and a lesson to teach. Maybe you dealt with an arrogant salesman today. You can take something away from that conversation that will benefit you in the future; whether it is in the workplace, or at home with your family. These people are brought into our lives to teach us humility, patience, respect, inspiration, acceptance, and the list goes on. Not to mention, maybe we need a reminder once in awhile of what we don’t want to become.

Open your eyes and your heart to every person who crosses your path. With every word and action they can indeed teach us amazing things.

  1. It is amazing how quickly just one negative, crabby person can affect others around them. This article is a great reminder to try not to let that happen. We do not want to give them "the power" to change our attitudes. Jenny has a good point--let's figure out what we can learn from them and not let their "crabbiness" become ours. Thanks for sharing this!
