“I am always making plans, but I don’t take any of them too seriously.”- Oscar Wilde
Bliss is defined as a state of happiness and contentment. It’s hard to describe what bliss feels like but it’s something that we all want to experience. Bliss is when you are in the zone, when you are doing things with ease, when you are at peace with yourself and the world around you.
I’ve learned that the power of living in the moment, letting go of your fears, and focusing on what is important are critical lessons in life that can help feel bliss. What we need to remember is that we are all human beings, and it’s inevitable that we will experience difficulties at some point.
- Living in the moment. When you live in the moment, you are aware of what’s happening now and not worrying too much about what might happen in the future. You enjoy every moment as it comes because you know that everything will eventually change. It is your job to be alive and experience life, so living in the moment means doing everything with a sense of awe or wonderment.
- Letting go of fear. This allows yourself to feel the excitement and happiness that comes with the present moment. You know that nothing will last forever, so there is no need to worry about what might happen in the future. Instead, enjoy every moment as it comes because you know that everything will eventually change.
- Focus on what’s important. It’s easy to be distracted, especially in the digital age we’re living in. Distractions make it harder to focus on what’s important in your life. Spending time with family and friends helps you feel more connected, less lonely and happier. You can start by doing an activity that you enjoy or do something that gives you a sense of accomplishment. (Example: Being around nature, hiking, and trail running is important to me.)
There are many ways to find your bliss. You just have to explore and make time for the things that make you happy and content. Live for today.
When someone says “live for today,” this means to live without regret because we don’t know what the future holds for us. Life is a gift and is a lot better than what we may think.
