The Single Woman’s 30-Day Blogging Challenge: Day 14

Day-14I used to think that bliss could only happen on BIG occasions – your wedding, the birth of a child – you know, BIG things.

I spent a lot of time searching for bliss and being disappointed that I couldn’t find it. It was pretty flippin’ depressing. And then a friend (OK, therapist) suggested that I find bliss in every day. I told her that she was completely off her rocker, but she challenged me. And I’m stubborn, especially when challenged. So I kept a bliss journal, and you know what, there is bliss in every day. Every single day.

Just a few examples:

  • Waking up on my own – no alarm, just gently waking up and the feeling of peace.
  • Seeing something new. A friend and I went to Lake Tahoe a few weeks ago. The highlight of the trip was not the shopping or casino….it was driving around the lake – two hours of sitting in the car, driving around the lake. I was in heaven.
  • Snuggling in clean, just out of the drier, sheets.
  • An unexpected hug from my nieces or nephew.

Every. Single. Day.

Blissfully yours!
