OK, confession time. Yesterday my Sweetie decided to celebrate Father's day by grilling a very decadent meal which he served with pre-dinner Martinis and a beautiful bottle of wine with the meal. Both of which I took full advantage of and for which am now paying the price. I totally have a hangover and just couldn't seem to get my usual kick off the week post put together... So here I am, better late then never recycling some of the old initiatives but hopefully inspiring a few of you to play along anyway.
I'm taking my last initiative truly to heart so please do expect a few surprises... or does that make it no longer surprising??... anyway, lets get the surprise party started!
As I think you know by now, my 12 month game is based loosely on Ben Franklin's weekly focus on each of his 13 virtues. I have chosen virtues that I believe will encourage Everyday Bliss. In addition to focusing on my virtues, I come up with "Bliss Initiatives" (color coded in purple for quick identification!) which are concrete things that you too can try, if you want to play along with me. However, because as Earl Nightingale says, "you become what you think about," even if you only follow along, and never take on any of the bliss initiatives, I expect some positive results. We will be fostering SURPRISE in these ways:
My 13 bliss virtues are
joy, order, creativity, passion, whimsy, serenity, inquiry, community,
romance, gratitude, moxie, humility, and surprise.
This week we are studying Surprise. Next week it is Hiatus week and after that, Joy.
