** I'm Following My Bliss **

Instead of ending with a quote like I usually do, this post itself will be almost entirely a quote. Robin Theiss enlightened me about Joseph Campbell and this quote when we had lunch last week. (Thank you, Robin!)

I'm feeling especially happy tonight, for a variety of reasons.

One, I just found out that my pal, Daisy, at Dancing With Daisy, received the job she recently interviewed for and really wanted! Congrats, Daisy! Y'all must visit her blog and watch/listen to the video she posted! : D

I'm also happy..... and blissful......just because! Just because I have wonderful writer friends, blogger friends, "normal" opposed to "abnormal" friends....a wonderful husband and family...AND, because I am "following my bliss"! I am a writer! I am writing my first book and I have a publisher! And, I truly believe every single word of the following quote:

"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
