the fun is in the process

Sometimes life all falls into place - the Universe supports all our efforts and we can sit in stillness, with a satisfaction that all is well.
But most times, there are many difficult bumps and blips along the way.
I am learning to actually enjoy those bumps.
Getting somewhere can feel like an accomplishment, if we were whisked there instantly, where would the learning be?
I also am beginning to really know that if I follow my bliss, the Universe responds with support.
I have heard that Joseph Campbell bliss quote for years and years, and sort of assumed it did not apply to me.
Now that I know it DOES apply to me, guess what? I am getting my bliss! It is happening and I am so grateful for this.
Life is good. If we expect it to be good.
and I know good does not mean "easy" -- that is the trick.

"Searching is half the fun: Life is much more manageable when thought of as a scavenger hunt as opposed to a surprise party." --Jimmy Buffett

  1. I just found your blog and you can now count me as a consistant follower...your shadow, if you will. LOL

    I love this post...the pages are awesome and I adore the Jimmy Buffet lyric/quote at the end.

    I'm beginning my art journal journey and enjoying the process so much. I'm not paying attention to any "rules", just making my own up as I go along. Your pages give me such inspiration...thank you for sharing!
