In a world that encourages you to look externally for guidance, information and clarity, you will come face to face with all the different aspects of yourself as you grow and evolve and start looking for happiness and a healthy mind.
As you find the courage to look within, you will shine a light upon parts of yourself that you have been hiding away, closing off from or trying to avoid. You may notice patterns of behavior you carry shame around. You may witness thought patterns that you judge yourself for. You may observe deep feelings of unworthiness or inadequacy that are uncomfortable to face and admit within yourself.
WHAT IS YOUR WHY?
WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE?
Having a clear why will support you to move beyond resistance and confusion and dive deeper to create a practice that meets your own personal needs. A SELF-CARE PRACTICE is very important to living a happy life for example things like yoga, meditation, nature walks or anything that you really enjoy. One of the ways in which you can find what really lights you up and make you happy is to remember what you did as a child between that ages of 7 years old to 14 years old.
Close your eyes for a moment. Take a deep breath and feel for your intention. Feel your feelings? You may ask yourself:
- What am I feeling today?
- Is there something I am wanting clarity on?
- Is there something within me I need to express?
- Is there an emotion I need to process?
- Is there something I need insight on?>
- Is there something I need support with?
- Is there something I am wanting to feel?
- Is there something I desire to create?
- What do I want to know?
- What do I want to experience in my journaling session today?
Listen in stillness and see what bubbles up.
Your intention should be clear enough to help you focus your mind and energy on what you truly want to manifest in your present moment or in your life as a whole.

Quite simply, creating a Bliss List involves writing down all of the small things you love, which make you happy, which bring you joy and which fill you up from within.
It can seem like a small and simple practice but don’t underestimate its power. It will help you get to know yourself in a deeper way and create a much more fulfilling life.
Once you know what these little practices, places, items, experiences, moments or people are, you can then choose to integrate these in a much bigger way into your life. You can start to make your bliss a priority and you can design your whole life around what makes you feel good.
Prepare yourself for this exercise by doing something that brings you into your body, slows you down and helps you connect into your heart energy.
Reflect on your life, and the places, experiences, things, events, people that make you the happiest. Think about the moments where your heart feels full and the practices that make you feel calm, grounded and whole. What makes you feel free, alive, inspired, excited and aligned? What makes you smile? What makes you feel at peace? Where do you feel like your best? What raises your vibes?
Write as much as you can until you have filled at least one page and continue adding to this list as things come to mind. Don’t dismiss anything, even if it is small. Once you have your list, commit to finding ways to integrate these small practices and moments of bliss into your life as much as possible.
