How to: find your bliss

bb21015We all have something that makes us 100 percent blissful whether it’s writing, singing, volunteering, etc. Maybe you’re unsure of what makes you happy, and you’re looking for your bliss in life.

Since the 5th grade, I knew I wanted to write because I loved to tell stories. Growing older, I fell in love with helping people and volunteering. In some way, I wanted to combine my love for helping others and my love for writing. Finally, found a way to do so: by writing tips to help and inspire people to become a better version of themselves.

It took a long time for me to put this altogether, but helping people and writing fuel my bliss, and now I want to help you find your bliss. Here are my five tips:

Be open

If you’re beginning your journey to finding your bliss, be open to all possibilities. If you don’t have a lot of hobbies that you enjoy, try something new. Take a cooking class, writing course or join a book club. Being open to opportunities will put you in the direction toward finding your bliss.

Express your curiosity and willingness

Why does everyone love yoga (or insert other activity here)? Be curious and find out what makes other activities enjoyable. Be willing to express your curiosity to learn. We never stop learning as we grow, and it could be the solution to finding your bliss.

Be proactive

Don’t sit and wait for your bliss to arrive at the front door. Take time out of your normal schedule and find what makes you happy. You deserve to find what fuels your love for life. If you don’t find it right away, don’t give up.

Trust yourself

Trusting yourself and your capabilities will help you find your bliss. Establishing trust with yourself means that you know in your heart you will find happiness and pursue that happiness regularly. Always trust yourself and your instincts, and your bliss will follow.

Trust time

Patience is the key virtue here. Yes, you might find your bliss in one day. However, it could also take months or years to truly find what fuels your inner happiness–and that’s okay! Don’t put a time limit on happiness, no matter how long it takes.

I hope these tips help you begin your journey toward finding your bliss. For those who are reading and have found their bliss, what advice can you offer to those who are still looking?

  • Love this!

  • I feel like I always want to rush into things. I am constantly finding myself impatient and wanting things NOW. I am going to learn more about the timing in life and perhaps there is a reason I am not getting all things I want right now.

    • Lauren,

      Thanks for your comment! I definitely believe time is an essential for everything in life. Always believe in the power of time.

  • These are all such great tips! I think the journey to finally doing what I love has been a long one for me. It’s sort of just evolved over time and I’m really happy where I’m at right now. You’re right, it does just take time.

  • i love your suggestion to be open and curious. I agree, we need to expand our horizons to find activities we love doing. I find bliss in creating things that bring joy to other people (for me, that is blogging and knitting ) Seeing the fruits of my labor after putting in hard work is, well, blissful.

  • The time is the part that kills me! Really great list.

    • Thank you for the comment!
      I know time can be the most difficult part, but it’s the part everyone should focus on the most. Timing is everything, you just need to trust that time will handle everything.

  • These are all some great tips. Especially the proactive and time one.

    • Thank you for the comment! I think a lot of people believe that their bliss will come to them, but it’s important to take the time to go look for it.
