One World One Heart EVERYDAY BLISS Open House

ONE WORLD ONE HEART - An inspired and fun blog game certain to increase Everyday Bliss if played. [Take a moment and breath deeply....Serenity week to unfold more fully tomorrow]
Photo
Please let me begin by welcoming the world to Everyday Bliss. This blog hopes to be an inspiring stop on your magic carpet ride. Everyday Bliss is an experiment based loosely on Ben Franklin's life long practice to focus on his thirteen virtues for living a good life. Instead of "the good life" my project is in the pursuit of Everyday Bliss. I've distinguished what I am calling the virtues of Bliss and each week I concentrate on one of the virtues. Last week was WHIMSY week and you have stopped by during SERENITY week.

Everyday Bliss is excited and delighted to be participating in this year's One World One Heart Magic Carpet Ride!! Over in the sidebar, I've gathered one of my favorite posts on each of the 13 weekly topics if you are interested in poking around the blog for a little fun or inspiration.


And now on to the giveaway!

Ben Franklin's 13 Virtues

  • 1. TEMPERANCE - Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation.
  • 2. SILENCE - Speak not what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.
  • 3. ORDER - Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time.
  • 4. RESOLUTION - Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve.
  • 5. FRUGALITY - Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e. waste nothing.
  • 6. INDUSTRY - Lose no time; be always employ'd in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.
  • 7. SINCERITY - Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and if you speak, speak accordingly.
  • 8. JUSTICE - Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty.
  • 9. MODERATION - Avoid extreams; forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve.
  • 10. CLEANLINESS - Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, cloaths or habitation.
  • 11. TRANQUILITY - Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable.
  • 12. CHASTITY - Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dullness, weakness, or to the injury of your own or another's peace or reputation.
  • 13. HUMILITY - Imitate Jesus and Socrates.
