Ha! Well as any regular readers of Bliss Habits know, this isn’t entirely true. What is true is I am introducing a whole new group of Bliss Habits to explore, which means I will be retiring the original thirteen, at least for now! Beginning June 4th I will be delving into 13 new habits and today I am introducing the new line up. I must tell you, it was just as difficult coming up with this next group as it was coming up with my original thirteen. There are so many worthy topics! Which means I’ll probably be doing this all over again in the future! Bliss is so diverse and its delights so worthy of pursuit I’m certain I’ll be interested in exploring many of its nuances for years to come.
Now, with out further ado here are the newest habits of bliss:
What may not have been clear in my previous iteration of topics, the definitions I choose to follow in this game are very important. They provide the context in which I am playing. As an example, the cookie cutter definition of “snark” may have more then a hint of irritability and possibly even meanness but when used in the way I intend “Giving a voice to the the feisty, straight talking beacon of authenticity within us” it evokes an entirely different game and hopefully a challenge worth taking on.
Thirteen Habits of Bliss
Kindness – Having, showing, or proceeding from benevolence and compassion in ones behavior; without cruelty
Wonder – To think or speculate curiously. The ability to see the miraculous and remarkable in everything.
Growth – Activities that enhance quality of life, develop talents, and increase the potential for success and happiness
Trust – To expect with confidence. Belief that you can depend on another and allowing yourself to be vulnerable.
Love – A feeling of deep affection and personal attachment. Affectionate concern for the well-being of others.
Resolve – To come to a definite or earnest decision about; determination to follow a purpose or intent.
Simplicity – A lifestyle of mindfulness; living a more sustainable, gratifying, and spiritually connected existence.
Snark – Giving a voice to the the feisty, straight talking beacon of authenticity within us.
Hope – The feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best.
Presence – Living in the moment with full awareness; being in the Now.
Thrift – The delight and joy of frugal wisdom, the ability to thrive with less.
Flexibility – The ability to adapt and generate creative options rather than to obsess, worry and control.
Fun – An exercise or activity for amusement or recreation. Finding enjoyment and playfulness.
The new habit cycle will kick off as of June 4th when we begin with Kindness. I do hope you’ll join us. I also would love to hear your thoughts on the new list. Looking forward to one in particular? Can’t imagine how one or more could ever be blissful? I’d love to hear it all!
Before we say hello to these interesting, hopefully bliss inducing, new habits we’re going to say good bye to the original 13 with a three week Blogversary-apooloza complete with giveaways, dozens of posts, top 10 lists and lots of fun. Tune in
