Looking for Bliss

Bliss-1. Supreme happiness;utter j0y or contentment 2. heaven, paradise.
I seem to have misplaced my bliss somewhere. My joy is hiding, but I am determined to seek it and find it and live it again. I welcome this challenge. To be joyful even when things are not going well, this is my lifelong goal. To not be at the mercy of events or people. To have and hold and always keep a big vat of joy in my heart no matter what occurs. Yes, it is easier said than done, but I know it is possible and I am gonna do it :-). Things I will be doing this next week to help restore my bliss:
Going to a big party tomorrow night.
Going to see Avatar.
Working on my big painting (finally after months)
Making valentine's out of porcelain.
Running with my dog, Zeus.
Hot chocolate and maybe even cake :-).
Meditating and staying in the moment.
Blogging and hearing from my bloggy buddies.
I will be giving reports of my success's all week. Also I want to ask for continued prayers for mom, she is in assisted living, but really hates it and cannot walk and is feeling badly about it all. She needs a dose of bliss too.
Happy Friday. XOXO ♥

Am glad you are thinking on these lines. Enjoy the party, the running, the cake..... You, your kitties and your Mum are always in our thoughts and prayers.

I hope both you and your Mum feel joyful soon. I hope you both get a lot of pleasure from the activities you do.

Have a lovely time living in the moment Annie. :-)

The cup you made was so beautiful. I'm sure your big painting will be too with some of the new skills you have learned from the other medium.

Have fun at the party! (I hope you find it and hold on to it soon)

these sound like wonderful bliss filled things in your life.

I'm sorry about your mom. to be unable to walk is most distressing. I hope she is back to walking soon. Did she actually break bones? Will the pins help her walk after therapy?

I think making art or crafts is a great way to find bliss.

I am so glad to hear that your mom is doing better. I would not like assisted living either, I'm sure. Blessings.

Prayers for your mom--hopefully you both will get your bliss back, one moment at a time.
