Happy December, my Twelve Months of Bliss seekers 🙂 Are you ready for this month’s challenge?!

November 25, 2015
Nov 12MofBliss Recap

I’m still learning to love the parts of myself that no one claps for. -Rudy Francisco   This month’s challenge was a beautiful one for me, one that took honest reflection, forgiveness, humor, and acceptance of the fact that maybe I still don’t have it all figured out but that if by the end of the day I can honestly say I am learning to love myself better, well then maybe I have more of “it” figured out than I think I…

Twelve Months of Bliss – October Recap & Linkup

October 28, 2015

Well, whoa. I swear it’s not until I go to write these Twelve Months of Bliss recaps that I realize just how fast each month flies by. Where did October go?! I was SO excited about this month’s challenge – partly because I love to take pictures, but also because it’s been a goal of mine to actually print more pictures out (I love having photo albums around the house). I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that 1.) I didn’t…

Twelve Months of Bliss – September Recap & Linkup

September 30, 2015

Did I lose a bunch of you all on this challenge? It’s okay, you can be honest. I think I lost even myself for quite a few days for this one but not because it was hard to do, to stretch, but because IT’S BORING. Seriously, stretching is totally boring. Even though I KNOW it’s good for me and truly does help me feel better, sleep better, slow down, think more clearly, etc. etc. etc. I know that stretching, especially…

Twelve Months of Bliss, September: Stretch.

September 2, 2015

These 12 Months of Bliss challenges start out a bit like a personal experiment, no? Truly, I think that’s kind of how we should think of them, especially in the beginning. I remember when I started this year-long project for the first time back in 2010, I was partly doing it to see if making small changes in my life each month could truly bring me happiness… bring me the change I was so desperately searching for in that time.…

Twelve Months of Bliss – August Recap & Linkup

August 26, 2015

It’s funny how you sometimes start something with the end result as a vision, clearly established in your mind, and then by the end of it- it looks completely different than you thought it would. That’s how these last two challenges have been for me and it’s kind of cool – I feel like I’m learning more about myself – who I am as a 31 year old – you know? It’s almost like, just as I got to know…

Twelve Months of Bliss, August: A Life Inspired.

August 1, 2015

Yeah, baby 🙂 Here we go, into month three of twelve in the Twelve Months of Bliss project! How about a bit of a breather this month, hmm? Last month, while pretty eye opening and so important, had the potential to be somewhat of a tough challenge (for me, anyway) so August is going to be a bit easier & more creative! Here is the official challenge information for August: Every day is like a blank canvas. What masterpiece will…
