Follow Your Path - from a Recipes for the Soul Card

This post comes from a "Recipes for the Soul" card, as a matter of fact


  • Perception
  • Individuality
  • Control
"You have to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was." -- Abraham Lincoln

Have you ever looked at a family photo and discovered an uncanny resemblance to one of your relatives? Did you notice any differences too? Those moments of recognition remind us how connected we are to each other, but also how unique we are. It's important to cherish our common traits, but it's just as essential to achieve our own identity.

  • Treat an older relative to dinner. Ask about their life and interests growing up. You may learn valuable lessons from their experiences that will help you along the way.
  • Parents are not to blame. When life doesn't turn out exactly as planned, we have a tendencey to blame our parents. Instead, look inside yourself for answers. What happens next is up to you.
July 2005 Update: If you know where someone can get more of these "Recipes for the Soul" cards, let me know! Thanks!

I would also love to find out where these cards come from. I recently found 3 of them in a bag of stuff I bought at a thrift store.

I have over 40 of these "Recipes for Soul" cards. I bought these several years ago. On the back of one of the cards I have is listed a number you can call to find out more about them. It is 1-800-517-9793. I've been looking online for them, but have been unable to find anything. Hope this number helps, but I'll keep looking.
