Build Your Bliss is officially one-year old. Unreal.
I started this blog on a whim. I was frustrated, confused, lonely…you name it, I felt it. I needed a creative outlet and- after many failed blogging attempts- I decided to give it one more shot.
I didn’t have any plans. I didn’t have any expectations. I just promised myself that I would be honest. I wasn’t going to hide my blog from my friends and family, I wasn’t going to change myself for the sake of my posts, and I wasn’t going to try to fit into any specific blogging category. I was just going to share my journey towards building my own bliss and [hopefully] inspire others along the way.
Build Your Bliss has changed me.
I’ve discovered a passion for writing that I never knew I had. I’ve gained confidence, freedom, and independence. I’ve made amazing friends and been inspired by every single one of them. I’ve taken risks, made mistakes, had successes, and grown up more than I could have ever imagined.
But more than anything, I’ve learned that perfect is not synonymous with happy.
Bliss is not about following the “right” path, making the “right” decisions, or living the “right” way. There is no “right”- there is only you. Bliss is about surrounding yourself with beautiful people, freeing yourself from the need for perfection, and doing the things that make you smile every single day.
So, thank you. Thank you for your constant support. Thank you for inspiring me. Thank you for being a part of this journey. I can’t wait to see what the next year has in store for you, me, and this blog.
