If you feel stuck on the journey to finding your bliss, consider changing your relationship to your situation.
Lets face it, we all get our fair share of cards. But lets not stack this deck against ourselves. Self-sabotage plagued me for years. I didn’t even know I was preventing myself from living my best life. I was convinced I was a victim. The deck felt stacked. One day I decided to stop bitching about my cards and try something a little different. I changed my relationship with my cards. Turns out my hand wasn’t shitty at all, I was just so wrapped up in thinking it was.
There are blessings everywhere. A meaningful purposeful life is what you make it. So dig in, design your bliss, put it on paper and make it work for you.
Here are some essential tips when searching for your bliss:
♥ Never, ever wait for inspiration to strike you. That is not where it happens. Inspiration happens in the moment, doing what you love.
♥ You don’t have to be a fully healed healthy person to begin your bliss. Just begin, make mistakes. Be the glorious imperfect person you are.
♥ Even though the process of passion discovery has steps, it is not linear. You don’t conquer one aspect then move on. This is a lifestyle. Elements will flux.
♥ Be flexible. Living an inspired lifestyle means flexibility and attention to your overall well-being. We are human. We err. We fail and we get back up. We have great days that feel wonderful and we have days in which we wish we could stay in bed and not deal with the world. That is the human experience.
♥ Don’t try to solve your problems first. Awaken to your situation mindfully, some stuff will just work out naturally. Trust that solutions will come to you. Following your bliss does not mean that you will finally get there and all your problems will be solved and then you will be in raptures. No such animal.
♥ Place a high value on your life and living it in a way that cherishes yourself so deeply that you inspire others. It means choosing your reactions to the good and bad stuff in your life. It means developing a new relationship to your life, and the cards you have been dealt.
Finding your bliss is fun, getting to know yourself is fun. Underneath your victim story was an amazing, wonderful, talented woman dying to come out. Invite her to the party.
