  1. What a beautiful post Katie! I’m still on my journey of discovery, but I do know that one day I will find my bliss!

  2. I think I’ve found my bliss with design and our Etsy shop and handmade business as well as my blogging goals with Club-Content. Every day, I push myself to do things I don’t know how to do, and I like that I’m growing and learning from it.

  3. We should all follow our bliss. I’m going to have to check out Tid Bit Tuesday. Sounds fun. We should try to put negative stuff in a jar and seal the deal.

    Good advice here.

  4. Lovely post, Katie! I think I am finding my bliss gradually….I do enjoy some aspects of my job, but my quilting, blogging, and teaching bring me true creative joy. I hope to be able to devote myself to these whole-heartedly, once I retire!

  5. It’s great to hear you have found your bliss, sometimes it’s the most un-expected things that bring us the un-expected bliss. To be honest, I’m still looking for my bliss and your post made me think about this 🙂

  6. Great post Katherine. We all need a reminder that we should stop and smell the roses. If a bee stings us while our nose is in the flower, shake it off and move to the next rose. Kinda like a butterfly. xo Ginger

  7. Well said, my Friend! Also I believe that it takes time for one to discover exactly what is their bliss:) Maybe that is the hardest part.

  8. I try to find bliss in everything I do. I work for a chiropractor and I see people being brought back to normal function every day. It’s wonderful to be able to be a part of it.I make an effort every day to live in the moment. You’re right our time here is limited. Thank you for all your beautiful words, they certainly bring an extra bit of sunshine into my day 🙂

  9. Hmmmm…part of my bliss anyway, is blogging, writing and knowing others enjoy my musings, reading and visiting other blogs. Then I have a rewarding job of working with the children in our school. Yeah, life is good.

  10. Hi, Katie

    Great post and I agree, we should follow our bliss. I am working towards this. Glad you share this and hopefully women or men can be inspire to take a chance. Have a great week.


  11. What a lovley blog you have.. really.. Love the colours.. the feel… so serene, calm, peaceful… Yes.. You must have certainly found your bliss… *smiles*.. Thats truly nice.. Im so so happy for you.. Its important for sure.. As for me.. Im not sure where my bliss is.. or what it invovles.. saying that.. Im a happy person.. and live each day to the fullest.. but the world ‘bliss’… huuuumm… isn’t that blissful as yet.. *smiles*..

    thanks for dropping by at Colours Dekor.. 🙂 I’m following you now too… 🙂 Hope you have a lovely week ahead of you..

  12. As I get older, I am constantly trying to follow my bliss! And part of finding peace was starting my blog! It is something I enjoy and I’m not letting myself get stressed over posting, not posting, etc. Of course, I have a few other things that I would like to be doing, too, but I’m definitely going to take your post to heart and see where I can make some nice changes. 🙂

  13. Loved this! And the aspect of a sunflower farm is just way cool (giggle) As you know, I’m still home (2 years & counting); like you said, it is difficult at times but we manage…I’m still trying to find my bliss and a way to make an income…but I figure that will work itself out Great post! Big hugs, xoxo

  14. I also am following my bliss through my blog and through freelance writing! But, I have to say I really do love teaching, though some days it can be a little trying. There really is such wisdom in this simple statement….I know so many people making a lot of money and they are miserable. For me, mid-life has been a good time to re-evaluate and pursue my passions, before time runs out! LIVE WITH JOY! Have a great day, Katie!

  15. I have certainly found my bliss. I can completely relate to the difference in job satisfaction vs. bliss. Even though money is really tight, I’d much rather be following my bliss than earning my way in a job at which I was miserable. There’s no comparison! I hope everyone follows their bliss, even if it’s as a hobby, a side business, however fits with their lifestyle. As you said, life’s too short. So glad you’re following your bliss! I’m in good company. 😉

  16. I love this thought. I have a sign above my kitchen sink that says, “Live with Passion.” I want to live life to the full! Everyday being used up in a way that is satisfying and rewarding – not humdrum or mundane! A lot of this is just in the attitude that I choose to take. I am now happily following back!

  17. I have definitely found my bliss in expressing my creativity and have started a blog to share with others. I am making new friendships via blogging and am loving every minute of it!! The only problem I’m having now is trying to shut my thoughts down to go to sleep at night!!
    I’m happy to hear you are enjoying your experience!

  18. 🙂 Following back via Linky Tools! 🙂 Sincere thanks for your sweet comments on my blog! <3 I swear when I get a comment I just smile all day long! haha…so cheesy, I know! As for following my bliss, I think I'm finally grasping that concept! My business is doing well, and nothing makes me happier than happy customers! 🙂


  19. I am following my bliss by means of my blog. Katie. Over the past four years I have rescued The Shady Dell from almost total obscurity and made it famous again. Through SDM&M and Shady Del Knight, the fictional character who hosts the site, I have built a brand recognized not only in my hometown but across America and around the world. Like John Ettline, the man to which I pay tribute, I love to entertain people, add music and laughter to their day, offer them relief from the hassles of daily life, make them feel welcome, special and important. Bringing people together, sharing genuine friendship and love – these are the things I live for – my bliss.

  20. Good for you for finding your bliss and following it. I’m not quite sure what my bliss would involve, it’s been a long time since I’ve considered it. I’m hoping to find it behind a camera.

“May the Lord bless you and keep you; may He let His grace shine upon you and be gracious to you; may the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-6:26 NIV Hugs from Katherine
