"Find Your Bliss"
"I'm lovin' it"
"Live Life Deliciously"
These are just a few of the slogans I heard the other day on TV.
It seems like whatever it is that you want or need, someone is selling it. Especially this time of year!
But can you really buy this stuff?
Can you buy a delicious life? Can you buy bliss?
The short answer. No. At least not in my opinion.
You can buy alot of stuff. Really cool, fun, exciting stuff. And that's cool & fun & exciting. And for a while, it might even feel like you've bought bliss.
But then...it gets old, it breaks, you lose it. Something newer & cooler & more exciting comes out to replace what you have.
joy, happiness - the real deal. It comes from within you. You have to
find it within you. You can't buy it. And you can't pay someone else
to find it for you. You have do the work. You have to look at yourself
- who you are, where you are, what you've said & done. The good,
the bad & the ugly. And then you have to love yourself.
You can want to change. And you can change. But you still have to love who you are in this moment.
