Practice Intentional Giving Throughout the Holiday Season

Practice Intentional Giving Throughout the Holiday Season

It’s the beginning of the holiday season, which is typically a time when we all do lots of giving, but sometimes not intentional giving. Mostly, that giving is related to shopping, buying things and spending money. But you can keep your spirit and wallet intact and make an even greater impact if you practice intentional giving throughout the holiday season.

The Bumpy Road to Bliss and Your Internal Compass

The Bumpy Road to Bliss and Your Internal Compass

What do you do when the bumpy road to bliss seems too difficult? After all, even as you work to cultivate happiness in your life, that doesn’t mean unfortunate circumstances automatically become fortunate ones. Difficulties don’t disappear. Instead, life continues as it did before, with its ups and downs. Yes, it is a bumpy road to bliss, but you can rely on your internal compass to guide you there.

About Silke Morin, Author of 'Living a Blissful Life'

Hi. I’m Silke, a new contributor to Living a Blissful Life. I am a mother, wife, writer, reader, runner, educator, scientist, and woman who lives with clinical depression. I wrote “lives with” because I have spent more than half my life “battling” depression, which is a constant struggle. Despite the battle, I withdrew from the world, attempted suicide, and was hospitalized – more than once. Waging war against depression clearly wasn’t working for me.

Contemplate Your Legacy

Contemplate Your Legacy

The legacy we leave is not just in our possessions, but in the quality of our lives. What preparations should we be making now? The greatest waste in all of our earth, which cannot be recycled or reclaimed, is our waste of the time that God has given us each day. ~ Billy Graham

Have you ever thought about your legacy? What does legacy mean to you? Do you associate legacy with money or personal property?

Unlock the Secret to Love and Happiness

Unlock the Secret to Love and Happiness

Mastering love and happiness is life’s greatest legacy to human race. Unless we uncover the secret to love and happiness, success is nothing but just an objective desire and achievement. ~ Unknown

Meaning of Love and Happiness

What is love? What is happiness? Have you ever said to yourself or others, “I just want find love and be happy?”

My closest family members, best friends and I say, “I love you” to each other from time to time. But, what does love really mean? I occasionally ask my friends, “Are you happy?” and they tend to say, “yes.” Yet, what does happiness really mean?

Jump Start the Journey to Mastering Your Life

Jump Start the Journey to Mastering Your Life

Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person. ~ Albert Einstein

Mastering Your Life, Unveiled

What does mastering your life really mean? It means visualizing the life you want, mapping it out, and taking intentional steps to create it. I often ask people: what are your interests? What do want out of your career? Where would you like to retire? What brings you joy? Most people respond, “I really don’t know.” More often than not they are struggling emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. The prevailing desire is for inner calm, peace and focus.

Happiest Places are Between Us

Happiest Places are Between Us

What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life–to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting? ~ George Eliot, Adam Bede

Happiest Places

On the backdrop of the beautiful Caribbean ocean, I want to share a reflection on relationships. The popularized tagline of Disneyland is “The Happiest Place On Earth.” For many Disneyland may very well be, but, consider something much deeper like the space between you and another, especially close relationships. Eric Weiner, the author of the book The Geography of Bliss: One Grump’s Search for the Happiest Places in the World, observed, “the happiest places on earth are not internal ones. They are not geographical ones. It’s the places between us and the closer they are the more at ease we are the happier they tend to be.”

How to Manage Your Sense of Belongingness

How to Manage Your Sense of Belongingness

To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul. ~ Simone Weil

Naked Truth about Belongingness

Do you feel accepted by others? Are those in your life supportive? Do you have a strong inner circle of friends? When life has you down, do those you thought would have your back come through? Do you have a yardstick for authentic belongingness?

The naked truth about belongingness is that it is an essential principle of human nature. It is as essential as food and shelter and it affects your well-being. You want to be accepted by others, especially those you care about and you want to be a part of something that is greater than yourself. Being connected to another and forming relationships creates a sense of belonging.

1440 Minutes in a Day – How to Live Each Day to the Fullest

1440 Minutes in a Day – How to Live Each Day to the Fullest

Life is a song – sing it. Life is a game – play it. Life is a challenge – meet it. Life is a dream – realize it. Life is a sacrifice – offer it. Life is love – enjoy it.~Sai Baba

Are you doing what you always dreamed of doing? Are you living a blissful life at home and work? Do you feel like you are living each day to the fullest? How would you spend each day or the last week of your life if you knew it was your last?

Easter Sunday reminds me of forgiveness, second chances, sacrifice, hope, new beginnings and possibilities. Let’s think about it, the story of Jesus’ last week on earth as a human being was riveting. His life and the life of others who crossed his path were filled with wondrous acts, profound prayer, realized prophecies, rich conversation, mesmeric moments and game-changing events for all of mankind. He knew his life would end at week’s end, even so, He did not waste any time. He marched towards living a meaningful, passionate and impactful life.
