‘If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are—if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.’ Joseph Campbell.
I think this phrase just about sums up all that is good in life. Being told to follow your bliss is just lovely. I truly believe that despite the tumultuous 5 years I have had that I am finally, through accident and design, following my bliss. I feel that I am living the kind of life I have always wanted, I feel satisfied and fulfilled in most aspects, my child, my work, my extra curricular activities. I am being challenged and pushed but not in a way that leaves me feeling wrung out and stressed, instead in a way that makes me question things and be proactive. Now I may be feeling this way because the sun in shining and to me that does makes the most enormous difference. I was in a funk for the last four months of last year because of the continuously grey over cast days but today feels hopeful, I feel that I am on the right track, living a life I always wanted. Not in a day dreamy, one handsome husband, a lovely big house and a collection of Mulberry bags sort of way, I’m not talking about aspiring, I am just being and living and it just feels right. I may feel different tomorrow, I may feel different in an hour but right now, in this moment, I am following my bliss and it feels great.
