Find Your Bliss

One of my (many) mantras is find your bliss. Find out what you love to do, what gives you great pleasure and satisfaction in terms of a job well done, and figure out a way to make that your life's work. I have rather harped on my son for a while now to "find his bliss" in terms of his education, and I do hope one day the message sticks. ;)

I was thinking about this today, about finding your bliss and making it your life's work, in terms of those that choose careers that happen to be in the public eye and the crap they have to deal with in that fishbowl. Just because your bliss is, for example, acting that doesn't mean you have given up your right to live a private life at the expense of that bliss. Conversely, just because your bliss is being a papparazzi or a gossip columnist doesn't mean you have the inherent right to interfere with ANYONE's private life, ever. Find your bliss, by all means, but do it in a polite, considerate, and circumspect way, please.

If you read the first entry in this blog, you know that I am on a journey to find my bliss, to live a true life. You must alway remember that finding your bliss is a journey, not a destination. Now, go out there and start finding your bliss, little ones!

That's a beautiful philosophy. Mine is the slightly more Britsh, 'Get on with it and stop whining!'
