2014: Living in Your Bliss

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday season, if you celebrate. I didn't mean to leave you all hanging but life took over and I let myself get swept up in the Holiday magic and savoring the time spent with my family. It's a new year and while any time of the year is the right time for new beginnings, there's nothing like the start of a new year to get pumped, inspired, motivated and focused.

Many of us have dreams that make up our bliss, things we want so bad and they seem so big and far off, we don't know where to start or get discouraged. I want to encourage you to truly identify what you want and then practice visualizing it daily for even just 30 seconds. If you can visualize it and truly believe it in your heart, my experiences have taught me that your brain and the Universe will find a way to make them happen. Brainstorm small steps that will place you in the direction you need to move in towards reaching that dream. Maybe it's your dream to be a chef but you just started learning to cook and culinary school seems too far off, big or expensive. Small steps you can take are to cook more, try all kinds of recipes and challenge yourself to create small sides using your imagination. Burn stuff, make nasty tasting stuf, experiment. Try things. Start a cooking blog or Instagram to document your growth and adventures, watch cooking shows and read cooking blogs. Take cooking classes. Research culinary school tuition costs and scholarships available, create a plan to save for it. These are all small things that you could do right now. Be encouraged. We all have a purpose in our lives. If you don't know what your's are, then immerse yourself into trying new things until you find things that resonate with you. Be open and watch your passions and purpose/s find you.

The theme, for me, this year is living in my bliss. My focus is on totally indulging in my purposes and passions in life, complete tunnel vision. What things make up my bliss? Traveling more is one of them. I'm very excited to going to South Africa in July! Writing is my bliss, I want to write on here more (but may be changing the format soon- I'll explain) and write on my makeup artistry site, Makeup By Milan, more too. Another bliss of mine is being with my Mr. Right and starting a family. That bliss will be found while I'm involved in my other blisses though. My bliss also includes getting deeper in practicing yoga (I joined a studio back in November and it's one of the best things that I could have done!), crystal healing, energy magic, community service, cooking, arts & crafts and doing makeup full time. I have a lot of bliss, lol, really anything creative, helping or inspiring people is my bliss. 2014, for me, is about living wholeheartedly in my bliss because when you are, everything you want (granted it doesn't harm anyone or thing and doesn't infringe upon someone's free will) magically comes together. I'm finally mature and open enough to understand this and I'm ready. 2013 was so good to me and 2014 is going to be even better to me. Let the adventures begin!

What is your theme for 2014? What does living in your bliss mean to you?

Great post + cute hair. Love the theme. At the end of 2013 I started living a bit more in my bliss and think I'll carry that through the year.
