I am just thrilled to announce that Chel Micheline of Gingerblue has agreed to be a regular contributor for Bliss Habits. Each Tuesday Chel will be offering her perspectives on the weekly Bliss Habit.
From the moment I laid eyes on her lovely blog I knew I wanted Chel to be a part of Bliss Habits. First I fell in love with her common miracles project. Her ability to make gratitude accessible and real was moving, particularly since I often struggled with it. She does too, yet still finds pockets of such profound joy. Click on the photo below to learn more about how you can participate and/or just stop by for some inspiration.
Here is what she had to say about herself:
I’m an artist and art historian, an animal-lover, an athlete, a voracious reader, a mama (5-year old Gracie) and a wife (40-something Tom), and an amateur gardener.
I also consider myself something of a life-long student as I have always spent significant amounts of time researching and gathering bits of information about everything from Pangaea to paintbrushes.
In the course of my life, there have always been two topics that interested me more than any others: well-being and creative expression. Those two things are actually tricky for me because while my heart is easily swayed by anything it finds to be “enchanted”, my brain requires hard science to even consider something remotely possible. So it’s always a bit of a balancing act, and I spend a lot of my free time reading and exploring the topics of psychology, creativity, neuroscience, and spirituality and seeing if I can make them come together in a way that works for me.
I’m really pleased to be part of Bliss Habits because I feel like it fits in perfectly with the “life student” role I find myself in so often. I look forward to each week’s “Habit” and the insights that will come from the way in which this community shares and bounces ideas off one another.
I am certain you will look forward to Tuesday’s as much as I do now.
