Soul Questions

I am into the second week of my Author Awakening Adventure – and I finally have the time and headspace to start putting some thought into it, and doing the exercises in the modules. I have just completed module one – all very thought provoking. And I utterly surprised myself by discovering I prefer to do the exercises by hand – not on the computer.

There is one last thing from the module I’d like to address, and that is the little card that states: 3 Soul Questions – Who are you? Where did you come from? Why are you here?

Gosh these questions can be answered on so many levels.

Who am I?

I am Simone.

Mother. Daughter. Sister. Wife.

Friend. Cousin. Teacher. Mentor.

Caring. Compassionate. Creative.

Broken & Bruised.

Happy & Sad all at once – why choose?

Lost & Lonely. Found & Friendly.

Ready for recovery.

Ready to live.

Where did you come from?

I burst into the world from the safety and warmth of my mother’s womb.

I came from love and hope. Decisions and expectations.

I came from Scotland & Ireland, England & Wales.

Australia. Tasmania. Hobart City.

I came from a place of judgment and criticism.

A place of learning, music and mentorships.

I came from firm friendships – filled with support, understanding, guidance, loyalty.

I came from all that befell me and all that I chose to see.

Why are you here?

I am here to nurture.

Listen and learn. Watch. Observe.

To see what’s not visible and hear what’s not heard.

I am here to guide, teach and inspire.

I am here to create order from chaos.

To love without condition.

And to give without expectation.

To share what I have – through music and words.

To play. To reflect. To write.

I am here because.
