Hi there! I’m Nicole.
And I am SO very happy that you are here to check out my blog; The Soulful Ways. First I would like to say, welcome and thank you for browsing!
The Soulful ways is centered on “the journey” and finding your path to a happy, healthy, and balanced life, both mentally and physically.
I consider life a journey… Something where we are constantly learning, experiencing new adventures and growing. In this blog you are going to find many different topics that I believe will help you in finding your path and your direction. From health and wellness, to food recipes, to relationships and faith, I’m here to help share my gains through things I’ve experienced in hope that it can help you in some way, big or small.
I’m so glad you’re here! Every week you’ll find helpful posts that inspire health and wellness, both internally & externally. I am here to share my tidbits of advice that I have cultivated over the last 4+ years in hopes that I can inspire a happier, more vibrant, energetic, confident, and healthy version of you.
Now, I know many of you are probably a little curious about the name of my blog; The Soulful Ways. And to be honest, I was at first too. I came up with the name when I first started the blog back in 2017. Back then, this blog was all about channeling vulnerability towards yourself and finding your passion towards Christ. Although the Lord is still the center of who I am today, I’ve evolved over the years and so has the meaning of The Soulful Ways.
It was really hard for me to come up with a good name because I wanted people to realize that I am an avid fitness-junkie, and that I love to lead a healthy and happy lifestyle. But, I also didn’t want people to not look at my blog and feel with discouraged or like they had to lose 10 pounds (trust me – I have felt like that before). Which is where I came to my conclusion of The Soulful Ways.
To be soulful means to do things meaningfully and with a passion. And to find your way means to discover your direction.
As you read The Soulful Ways, I hope for nothing more than for each and every one of you to find a happy and healthy lifestyle that has your name written all over it. I want all of us to live a life we are passionate about. I want all of us to lead a life that makes us excited for each and every day to come. I want us all to find what our healthy life looks like and cheer others on for discovering their healthy life. I am here to show you that health is different for everyone, but nevertheless, we can support everyone’s personal version of what a healthy life means to them.
What started as a simple “journal” to help me become more confident in who I am and who I aspire to be, has transformed into a channel where I can openly share and write about my struggles AND my triumphs with creating a life that flourishes, both mentally and physically.
I believe that there aren’t any shortcuts, hacks or gimmicks. I believe that being “healthy” is a deeper journey that we get to experience throughout our life that God so graciously gave us and I am here to show you, through experience, that a healthy and balanced life is both a physical and mental journey. Truly, we are all just living to simply to connect with our soul during all of life’s twists and turns in order to find our way and create a life we are proud of.
