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!

Stop and Take a Mental Picture

One of my favorite shows on television is The Office. The show pokes fun at the very things so many of us encounter with co-workers every day. For any of you who also like this show I’m sure you’d agree the wedding of Jim and Pam has to be one of the best episodes. Fans of the show have been rallying for Pam and Jim to become a couple from day one. Then six seasons later we all cheered (and maybe shed a happy tear or two) while they finally married!

At the beginning of the show Jim and Pam started taking “mental pictures” of the day to guarantee that these moments would forever be a part of their memories. They’d take these pictures by raising their hands as if holding an imaginary camera and then to capture a moment they’d push the shutter button. During the show I just thought it was a cute thing they were doing together but then I got to thinking, “By using your hands to actually take a ‘mental picture’ would that help the memory stick?” I think it might.

We’ve all been reminded time and time again to “stop and smell the roses” and still we forget. So maybe the trick is to get into the habit of taking mental snapshots of the things we’d like to remember. I believe the action of stopping and “taking a picture” of something might just offer the pause in our busy day to recognize the simple things that we take for granted. And maybe with each “push of the shutter” we can trigger our brain to think, “Hey, this is something important and I’d like to file it away!”

So, what do you say? Let’s each turn ourselves into “memory photographers”! Give it a try and report back! I’d love to hear how it works for you!
