Soul Nurturers


He gave up at cutting hair, and instead trimmed away at his soul, sip by snip. ~Eka Kurniawan

To give up one’s passion, to forego love for expediency, to live for yesterday at the expense of the future are all soul diminishing activities, spirit-crushing choices. I am lucky to have been blessed with parents who guided me in my youth according to the design of my soul, not to the design of their souls or my sibling’s souls, or to the imagined ideal soul of the day.

They did not attempt to mold me in their image. They saw a unique individual, six unique individuals, and guided us to grow according to the imprint burnt into our souls at conception. It is not an easy undertaking to guide someone along a path you can’t see. Yet, they did that for each one of us.

The result, we are six happy (mostly) and well adjusted (again, mostly) adults. We are who we were meant to be, not mini-mes of their unique designs. They were soul nurturers. For that, I am forever grateful.
