I skimmed over my schedule, scouring for moments with the potential for bliss.
I revisited the days gone, digging deeper and investigating my little pockets of joy, the sparks of happiness I experienced.
I know when a moment is ready to be shared, when my story cannot be contained. Words, sentences begin to gush out of my mind, often faster than I can type or even write.
None of that so far today.
I wandered into my office and quickly flicked on my computer, checking messages and emails.
This is what I read……..“Karen your blog is like a Bliss Kiss”.
Oh wow, I spun around and around in my office chair, enjoying the dizzy feeling like a toddler.
I was given a big juicy compliment. Time taken by someone to generously gift me a selection of their own words, letting me know my message was heard.
Accepting compliments is a tricky one for me. It does not come easily or naturally, I somehow want to shoo compliments away, flick them off. I come back with comments like “it was easy’, or “you would have done the same” or quite simply nothing, just awkward silence. All these actions minimising my achievements and denying both myself and the other person a moment of bliss.
People give compliments because they want you to have them.
Today I am publicly owning my compliments in all their glory. My blogging dream is to make a difference in the everyday lives of people and it is coming true.
I am gulping down my fear of boasting and sharing a small selection of comments that touched me last week. Letting you know how much your words mattered to me.
Hey Karen…..I may not click “like” or comment on everything that you write each day but reading your daily blog has become like my daily hit of positive!!! Your words have touched us all in some way or another and have inspired us to keep the positive energy flowing xx
Your photos & story are restorative for me. I wish I had known about 31 days of bliss earlier!
I love the dose of positivity that always comes with it.
To all of you who silently read my work I thank you, I am more aware now that my readership is loyal and ever-growing. This is way beyond all my expectations 6 months ago.
To the many of you who also read and message me, both publicly and privately, I gratefully accept your beautiful messages, they adorn my world and inspire me each and everyday.
Bliss, bliss, bliss and kiss, kiss, kiss
Today I accept your generous compliments and I say thank you with grace.
Do you accept compliments or shoo them away? This is your bliss. Next time take a moment to pause and graciously accept such a beautiful gift.
This is Day 22 of 31 days of Captured Bliss
