I am truly delighted to have you stop by. You have landed in the middle of my ongoing experiment to encourage Bliss in my life. In order to do this I am playing an Everyday Game in which I explore what I am calling the 13 virtues of Bliss. Each week I concentrate on one of the virtues, create games to play and report my success or failures here.
My Thirteen virtues of Bliss are joy, order, creativity, passion, whimsy, serenity, inquiry, community, romance, gratitude, moxie, humility, and surprise.
If you arrive here during surprise week I may set off fireworks, during whimsy week I might send you a fancy tea cake, or during romance week you could be treated to a love poem... each of the thirteen weeks has its own flavor. Which has made it really difficult to choose only a few of my favorite posts as a way to introduce my blog. Are you interested in politics or religion? Do you want to laugh or do you just want to know more about me? It is really is hard to choose! Here are three "really good ones" I came up with:
From Serenity Week, a reality check:
From Gratitude Week, a real favorite:
From Whimsy Week, comedy for my foodie friends:
If you want more, over in the side bar you can peruse the archives, take a look at a sample post from each of the virtue weeks and start at the beginning where I share my lifetime fascination with Ben Franklin. The whole premise behind this blog is that you can jump in any time and play along as much or as little as you wish.
I begin each week proposing some "Bliss Initiatives" which are concrete things you 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.
If you think the idea of playing an Everyday Game like tis sounds interesting but Bliss isn't what you are after I recommend checking out the PLAY an EVERYDAY GAME tab where you can get some ideas for setting up your own game.
Thank you so much for stopping by Everyday Bliss. I am delighted to share my little project with you and it is my hope that during your visit I have been able to inspire and amuse if not provoke a deeper thought from time to time.
