Finding your bliss
Achieving bliss begins with becoming at peace with oneself. By doing this, it frees a person from all negativity. Which leaves room for complete harmony and the restoration of a new soul.
Others describe my personality as outgoing, friendly, and enthusiastic. I tend to be easily approachable. It is my goal to make everyone feel at ease and comfortable. Although, I can be extremely energetic and perceived as loud, I always have an ear for others. If someone needs to talk, I seek him/her out. I can read other individuals body language and can detect when something is bothering them. It makes me feel good when I can resolve a situation. When in a group of people, everyone should feel at ease. Ultimately, making others laugh and smile is the goal. Social situations can be difficult for some.
When making decisions, intuition and my gut instincts are my prime resources. If a decision will hurt someone, I try and find the best way to correct it without making that individual feel belittled. While others may use logic or concrete evidence, I use feelings. My energy comes from others, and if there is negativity in the room, my emotions will try to dispose of them.
After a long day, it is nice to find a place to escape from the world. Driving in the car alone, gives me time to process and think. It is easy for us to get caught in this world and not take the time to appreciate what we have.
Another place that I go to escape is walking around a lake. I love the serene atmosphere and the smell of the water. It heightens all of my senses and makes me feel at ease. Even if I am unable to walk outside, I try and picture it in my head and take a deep breath. It tricks my mind into thinking that I am actually there.
However, bliss does not have a set location. It follows you wherever you go. In different circumstances, it takes a form and until you have achieved bliss you will not know that it is located right in front of you.
When I think back to my childhood, various memories flutter. The girl who had braces in fifth grade and found comfort in a book rather than by the swings. The girl who would skip lunch in the cafeteria to find comfort having lunch away from others. The girl in high school, who tried out for sports but would never win a game. Looking back, those memories could be deemed as depressing or sad. But I would say on the contrary, it is the opposite. The girl who found comfort in books, loved to write poetry and escape in short stories she created. The girl who had lunch alone volunteered at the local homeless shelter, so she could give others joy. The girl who never won a medal, was the team captain of cross country and gave her team spirit and joy during games. In each situation, I was able to find peace within myself, which is what some may call “bliss.”
Achieving bliss is about finding our purpose in life. I have found that my purpose is to make a difference. I want to be that person that gives them confidence and faith in him or herself, when nobody else believes in them. Everyone needs to know that they are worth something and deserve more.
