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!

Wisdom from a Four Year Old

My four year old daughter added a new word to her vocabulary last week. The word “ruined”. If her Playdoh colors get mixed – it’s ruined. If she spills on her shirt – it’s ruined. If she breaks a crayon – it’s ruined. At first I was appalled at my daughter’s use of such a negative word, but then I noticed how she was reacting to all these “terrible” events in her life. After every dramatic “Ooohhhh, mommy, it’s all ruined!” I saw that she would just move on like it was no big deal – as if to say, “Oh well.”

What a wonderful lesson! How often in life do we get upset over the “ruined” things that don’t really matter? Just think how different our days could be if we adopted the “Oh well” reaction?

If you oversleep in the morning, “Oh well.” If you get stuck in traffic, “Oh well.” If you burn supper, “Oh well.” Instead of allowing yourself to stay in the downward spiral, say to yourself, “Oh well”, and move on. You’ll be glad you did!
