See Your Soul

You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul ~ George Bernard Shaw

If you really love the arts, you definitely understand what Shaw is saying in today's quote.  I definitely relate to characters, stories, and settings that speak to my soul in books, film, and theatre.  If you are in a creative pursuit, like I am, you know exactly what it means to see your soul and have it come through in your creativity.

It doesn't always need to be a creative goal that helps you see your soul.  When you set yourself a goal, sometimes it takes everything you've got to achieve it.  And that's when your true soul might be reveled.  I also call it figuring out that which you're really made.  For me those two goals were quitting smoking and finishing my degree.  And now, more is being revealed as I complete my first two novels.

Whether it's a creative goal or a business/career goal, if it stretches you enough you can see your soul in your work.  In today's rough environment, that's a good thing. 

What soul enlightening lesson have you learned in your dream journey lately?  I'd love to hear!
