My Bliss Is Small but Mighty – Blog Party Hop

in Living,Social Media

This weekend is the Blissdom Blogging Conference. It is not one I have ever attended, but many of my friends are going and I have to admit it would be nice to be there with all of them. My wonderful friend, Tara, along with myself, Amy, Jessica decided to do a “Found My Bliss” Blogging Party this weekend for everyone else who is staying at home this weekend. Please join in after you read my submission.

Found My Bliss

You may have read my mentions of my depression the last week or so. I have a lot on my plate, I need to update my meds (I have a doctor’s appointment next week) and it has just been hard to feel “blissful”. When Tara mentioned this blog party I thought it would be a good exercise for me to try and focus on those things that are bliss to me. What I found is that it is the little things that make me happy. My bliss is small, but mighty!

  • Bliss is when I start Pandora and Adele is the first song that plays
  • Bliss is when my cat, Ozzie, comes up to me every evening and meows until I pick him up to pet him for a few moments and he purrs.

  • Bliss is when my son smiles and shares his dimples with the world.

  • Bliss is when I see snowflakes dancing in the air.

  • Bliss is when I drink any amount of water and I’m proud of myself for doing it.

  • Bliss is laughing over the silliest of anything with my best friend.
  • Bliss is when I can talk about social media with others (really)

  • Bliss is when I see baby feet.

  • Bliss is when my cat, Peaches, puts her paw out to me when she is next to me to say “I’m here for you”
  • Bliss is an ice cold, perfectly fizzy, Coca-Cola

  • Bliss is flying through the clouds on an airplane and it seems like soft cotton all around.

  • Bliss is thinking about my little moments of bliss!

I love your moments and I completely agree that it is important to realize that the little moments are precisely when we can find our bliss. Thank you for sharing yours.

Yes, I have to admit cat purrs are right up there! Ozzy is one of our cats names too, and he is always the first to great me with purrs and head bumps. I am sure it has something to do with feeding him but his kisses remind me too of simple joys.

That just about had me in tears but you are absolutely right, there are other things to be happy and blissful about. It is so important to be able to see the good things and the bliss in every day so I am so glad you are able to do that! I am in a great place presently. It is a mighty long story but to make it short (er), I suffered a workplace injury that left me with horrible chronic pain and have had my share of really DOWN days. I kept climbing the mountain to get back to work and it took me a lot of time and effort but I finally made it back only to be discarded like yesterday’s garbage by my employer. I loved my job as a nurse and being a nurse is so much of my identity. After that I spent the past 2years, launching a human rights case against them. Well, I just found out that I won! I get to return to my job and it has been almost 4 years since I was injury. Right now, I am full of bliss-However, I always believed that most things happen for a reason but I am still trying to figure out why I had to fight so long and so hard to get my job back…sorry to be so long-winded. I am so happy for you that you are having a found my bliss blogging party!

Loved your blissful moments and the others who actually posted about what brings them bliss but looks like this is turning into a recipe linky. abailey_crace at yahoo dot com

I wish that I was able to attend this conference because I know that I would learn so much about blogging. Hope you write a review about it.

i love your bliss !! this is just the post i needed, especially as of lately.  Have been feeling in a rut and just kind of stuck somewhere i dont want to be. I also have fibromyalgia so that certainly doesnt help the positive thinking. i try and think about all the things i have ( a house, even though it’s small… and groceries even though my grocery budget is small) that SO many others dont have!

here’s a few of my bliss moments since i feel encouraged to write them!
– hearing our bulldogs snorting sounds when they’re getting a neck rub… so funny
– the feeling you get when you had a really restful night’s sleep
– getting along with all my coworkers ( that doesnt happen everywhere!)
– perfect cup of coffee
– sitting by a crackling fire on a cool, bug-free night
– my fiance reaching over in the middle of the night, still sound asleep, and holding my hand

have a great day robyn!  (dealbunny20@gmail.com)

Robyn, thanks for sharing your blissful moments.
Here are some of mine:
When my grandkids are quiet and listening to me read a bedtime story
Having a glass of wine with my husband
Soaking in a hot bubble bath

Here’s to more blissful moments for everyone.

I’m wishing everyone a bliss filled weekend.
Hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day
A warm sunny day in February
Enough snow to call off school
An A on my test
The smile of the kids
My dogs greeting me when I get home

I’m grateful for this. I’ve been down in the dumps and needed inspiration to look at the brighter things in life and think of an idea for a blog post! Thanks for the smiles.

I think sometimes in life we forget about the little things in life that should be bringing us bliss…so thank you for the reminder

Thanks so much for doing this! Sorry for being so late to join the party (we were away for February break). But I wanted you to know that I posted a special link to your site on my blog! http://www.robynsonlineworld.com/2012/02/my-bliss-is-small-but-mighty-blog-party-hop/

I’m not a blogger so can’t do the post. But I will say what you did helped me out tremendously. Also in the throes of anxiety and depression right now as well as crappy health overall. I concentrate too much on that and not being optimistic often.  Getting rid of the fear is a big part of it. Fear has no place when you look for the good things in life and your Bliss. My bliss is partly just waking up everyday and getting another day with my family. My bliss is hearing the little coos and giggles of a little one in the house again…and yes wiggly little toes! My Bliss is a having the energy to make a perfectly baked and frosted homemade cake to gift my husband, and seeing my 6th grader’s eyes shine when she makes a 3 point BB shot. My Bliss is my son’s mischevious sense of humor and the pride he feels with a decent report card.It is seeing my two daughters, new mommies, look into their babies eyes with such love and commitment and would lay down their lives for those little angels…that is Bliss witnessing that love.  My bliss is a toasty warm blanket wrapped around the whole of me while holding hands with my hubby and watching a movie…even IF yet another crashupsmashupwarandwoe movie. My Bliss is looking in the mirror, EVEN IF seldom and thinking I am OK like this, and even if not some skinny supermom, I am still good, caring, beautiful and have 6 beautiful little souls who grew under my heart, and I get to share every day with them still. My Bliss is my family. Period!

aww. crap Robyn, now look what you did! (sobs). <3  lol!

Bliss for me is Coca Cola too.  If I am sad, or cranky, my boyfriend checks the fridge and if we are out, without a word he will go buy me a 2 liter – it works every time! Its the little things that make me happy

People at work think im the crazy cat lady because i now have 3 cats, all rescues.  Whenever I am sad, scared, lonely, depressed or have a migraine at least one of them will come cuddle with me.  My one cat harley, always knows when I am getting a migraine and follows me around until I lay down in bed in the dark. He then stays right by my side purring until I start feeling better.  Pets bring me bliss for sure!

Bliss is a bear hug from Dad, the smell of Mom’s cooking, a treat from my sweetie, the sound of my nephew’s laughter, hanging out with my brothers and sister. It’s a day without pain, or rain or grey skies. It’s losing track of time while making creative things. It’s escaping into the wild blue and landing in paradise. It’s looking at the people I love I knowing they’re safe and warm and alive in my life.  :)
