Follow your bliss? How is this done? Some of us are trying to figure out how to follow our own bliss; some of us have been trying for all our lives; along with figuring out our life’s purpose, and who the hell we’re supposed to be when we hear countless times, “Be yourself.”
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been deciphering my bliss for all my life. My name is Monique McIntyre, and I finally figured out that my bliss wasn’t about the doing. It was truly about the being. If you think you’ve heard what I just said, consider you have not.
Stop the presses!
I said, if you think you’ve heard what I just said, consider you have not. Some of us think we have figured out what the concept of being vs. doing is all about, yet we’re still “doing” to get to the “being.” We have bucket lists and laundry lists, but still have no idea that being includes no list… whatsoever. We still have just the concept. Not yet the fullness of the living it out as who we are, without thinking twice about it. But it’s okay that we are there. Everyone is somewhere. It’s all about evolution to me, and not arriving to the goal.
My best life discovery? Realizing I was a “doing” machine invested in my being-ness, but with a higher stake in my “doing.” I realized getting it all done, and having it all together were not goals I wanted. They were goals I had been given. As I sought out the simplicity of my joy, I was reminded of how to access my deepest joy: my bliss. And what I’ve taken away from the journey of my life, I’ve put down in these pages for you. Not a formula. I never seek to give anyone a formula. I don’t believe there are any. Take what you need and leave anything that doesn’t feel good to you behind.
I am a fierce purveyor of bliss, and I will remind you that it is from a state of bliss that we are most effective, most productive and far happiest in life. Is this how it can be all the time? Hell, yeah! This revolution is about evolution. Yours.
This ain’t your mama’s positivity. This is real, authentic joy – the very nature of our souls. It doesn’t get better than this, kid!
Oh, wait… Yes, it can!
