Rules of Happiness #4 – Follow Your Bliss – January 9 Devotions

Happy Saturday! Are you doing anything special this weekend? Doing something you enjoy, something blissful?

Either way, we are continuing to look at one rule each day from the Rules of Happiness (NOT an affiliate link) by Karl Moore.

So far we learned about:

Rule #1: Stop Feeling Sorry for Yourself.

Rule #2: Be Grateful.

Rule #3: Say Yes More.

 

And today’s rule to promote happiness is really fun…

 

Rule #4 – Follow Your Bliss

 

“Bliss is what you’re doing when you’re wrapped up in the moment. When you’re so thrilled just to be doing it, it ceases even to be work anymore.

Your bliss occurs when you’re living in the moment, and time doesn’t really matter anymore. It’s not for the money, it’s for the pleasure.” –Karl Moore

 

When you follow your bliss,

doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors;

and where there wouldn’t be a door for anyone else.”

– Joseph Campbell

My reflections:

I love this one. Seems just right for a Saturday, for following my passion and bliss in planning and continuing to work on quilt projects! Now that I caught up with quilt orders and some nearly completed gifts, I am anxious to get MORE done, in a more timely fashion.

So what are YOUR thoughts?

What do you think about this rule? Do you have something special in your life that evokes bliss and happiness?  Is it something you can do today and/or this weekend?

  1. Your post really resonated me. My post today was about the difficulty that lies in having to choose between things that Need Doing and things you want to do. You’ve answered my question – always take time for bliss!

  2. Both my spouse and I were able to follow our bliss today – so happy we had the time. I blogged and took some photographs. He made some turkey soup, which will be featured in my blog tomorrow. It’s nice you incorporated your love of quilting into this post. I’ve been reading this series with interest and look forward to your future posts in this series.
