No matter how it is framed, searching our soul commonly carries the expectation of long and arduous bouts of self-examination and personal doubt. It is often fraught with stress and anxiety when in reality it has the potential of sweeping us away on a magnificent adventure.
To me, laughter is a non-sexual orgasm. My mind, body and spirit are tickled, sending waves of euphoria that reverberate throughout me. All that is negative is converted into positive waves of light and love. I greatly value the healing and connecting properties of laughter.
A funky little car that Kia has presented in 2014 with an entirely new design. The 2014 Kia Soul, well, has soul. Great for getting around the city and practical with good gas mileage, and the hatchback means lots of space for extra friends and all the extra stuff you need to haul.
