Spring Spiritual Cleaning- The Eulogy

I probably won’t be adding may pictures or “fluff stuff” to this post because in all reality, it is about my Spiritual growth and journey for the month of April. If you can believe it, I haven’t gone to the gym more than 2 or 3 times this month because I have been putting more into the growth within than the external growth with weights. Now, that being said, I still have been doing my deep breathing exercises, yoga at home, nature walks, and meditation.

I have been learning a lot about myself. I was advised one of the best things that we can do is to write our our eulogy. In doing so, we can almost see the legacy that we will leave behind. Initially I had no idea where to start with writing my own eulogy. It was with the help of a blog I found Art of Manliness, yeah, this is obviously a blog directed at men but, what the hey! I didn’t see any, “No Girls Allowed!” signs hung anywhere and if it helps me get to the next spiritual stone I’m trying to get to, so be it!

Writing the Eulogy really did get me thinking about those things we sometimes think about, sometimes we forget about. I began to think about the people who came into and influenced me in my life. The lessons I learned. The dreams I had, ones I achieved and ones I grew out of when I realized I didn’t want them anymore.  

It’s a great exercise to do. It will help you to reevaluate the life you have lived thus far, and maybe help guide you in what you would like to accomplish, or what relationships you’d like to repair since you have the opportunity right now. For some this exercise will be easier than for others. For me, I found some parts were very difficult. Regardless, I’m glad I did it.
