** Bliss = Spiritual Joy **

Sometimes it takes a while for things to sink in, ya know?! In my previous post, I went on and on about the "Twilight Zone" moments I've been having. Daisy left a comment and referred to them as "cosmic encouragement", which is a fabulous name, don't ya think?! Thank you, Daisy! So, after reading her words, it hit me! I'm FOLLOWING MY BLISS AND THINGS ARE HAPPENING TO (AND FOR) ME!

Duh! I even put that at the top of my blog: Writer-Humorist-Bliss Follower.

What can I say? Sometimes I wonder about that crowbar incident. You'll have to read my book to find out what that means!


* I posted the following poem on April 21st, but I think it's well worth posting again. Have a wonderful, blissful day, everyone! *

"Follow Your Bliss.

If you do follow your bliss,

you put yourself on a kind of track

that has been there all the while waiting for you,

and the life you ought to be living

is the one you are living.

When you can see that,

you begin to meet people

who are in the field of your bliss,

and they open the doors to you.

I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid,

and doors will open

where you didn't know they were going to be.

If you follow your bliss,

doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else."

-- Joseph Campbell


  1. I figure when something is working you need to hold onto it as long as you can. So follow that bliss, or as I would say: cosmic kick in the pants. :)

  2. Hi Becky....I think it's wonderful you are following your bliss. I am trying to do the same. It's wonderful! Thanks for your post, your insights, thoughts, and opinions. Sincerely, Susan

  3. Thank you all so much!I am following and enjoying my Bliss at this very moment! Sitting outside the Bread Co at The Loop, enjoying our awesome weather! I'm meeting my son, Mark, for dinner in a few minutes!

  4. Aw, I'm glad you liked those words, Becky. It's great when things just all kind of fall into place just the way you think they should, isn't it. I like that poem. I especially like the last couple of lines. Makes good sense to me.

  5. Love it!!! Very uplifting and encouraging!

  6. Thanks for this Becky...I needed to hear this right now as I am at a bit of a muddled crossroads where my creativity is concerned - art vs writing and vice versa.


  7. I'll look forward to reading about the crowbar incident! Love the bliss poem. There is truth to it, just wish the doors would open a bit faster! LOL

  8. If I was from The South,(as some of my buddies are!) I would have say, "I just love all y'all! Y'all make my heart sing and I truly mean that from the bottom of my heart."

    I'm feeling so much good karma (another word I like!)from all of you, that I'm dancing with joy this morning! I'm thrilled to be able to write anything that means something special or helpful! All of you are fabulous, special women!

  9. "Cosmic encouragement"...very clever! And a great new tag line!


  10. Hi Pat! Thanks! Yea, I love "cosmis encouragement", too!

  11. I love your upbeat mood!! I need more of that some days:)) It is so nice to meet you and follow your blog:)

  12. Hi Terri! Thank you so much. What wonderful things to say! I'm glad we've "met", too! :)
