Bliss: n. perfect happiness. great joy.
This month, I struggled a little bit. I found myself in a bit of a rut, and I let myself stay stuck. So, when talk of this month’s Keeping’ It Real theme, ‘Real Bliss’, started in my blog circle group, it got me thinking. What is my idea of bliss? Well, the cancer-free brain scan I got last week sure felt like bliss! But I couldn’t quite figure out how to sum that up in one frame. My Wednesday mornings are certainly blissful, too, so I went about capturing those details…my soothing drive down the coast, coffee in hand and my yoga studio. I thought I had it. And then, one evening last week, my boys put their skates on and chased each other down the street in a spontaneous little one-on-one hockey game, in the gorgeous light of the setting sun. More bliss…this time, both theirs and mine. Then it struck me. I was having a hard time deciding what my post would look like for ‘Real Bliss’, not because I couldn’t find it, but because it is everywhere I look.
So, here it is, glimpses of the ‘Real Bliss’ I find in my daily life. It’s not that I am luckier than most people, but that, each day when I wake up, I make the decision to find my bliss. So go ahead, take a look around…your bliss is waiting.
