Everyone gets caught up in the hustle and bustle in life. Whether we become too focused on our career, or get distracted by the unlimited sources of entertainment available to us, often times we lose sight of the importance of introspection. I believe it’s healthy, maybe even necessary, to sit back and reflect upon what we believe and what’s important to us. I also believe the typical limiting factor that prevents us from deeper thought is lack of an available forum. When we have these venues where we can take the time to think/talk/discuss/question, and we come away feeling refreshed and revived. So if you’re looking for that forum for self reflection, I urge you visit SoulPancake.
My friend Maddy told me about SoulPancake over a year ago while we were discussing religion and spirituality. If I remember correctly, Rainn Wilson, the actor who plays Dwight from the Office, founded the website with the intent to provide such an introspective forum available to the entire world.
Their tagline clearly states their mission: “SoulPancake is a place to speak your mind, unload your questions, and figure out what it means to be human.” And it does just that. It’s created a very comfortable culture, where you can take it as seriously as you want to be, and find some level of support. And the questions reflect the same, where some will be rather flippant while others are incredibly challenging to answer.
I personally subscribe to their weekly emails. Every friday, I receive 2-3 thought-provoking ideas. It’s a nice reprieve from the routine of work, loading my email friday morning and reflecting on an intriguing question. Keeps me honest with myself.
So if you’re looking for a way to better connect with your inner you, check out SoulPancake….because it’s a breathe of fresh air we all need.
