Bliss List

A few years ago I made an "I Love..." list of things that I love (obviously) and that make me happy. I hadn't looked at it in a while, and earlier this week, I saw another blog post on SoulPancake, about making a "Bliss List" - a 5 item list of things that bring you bliss. Same idea as "I Love..." but shorter. I went back and read my Love list and, yup, I still love all of those things. It was really nice to be reminded.

From SoulPancake:
"It's good to be just plain happy, it's a little better to know that you're happy; but to understand that you're happy and to know why and how and still be happy, be happy in the being and the knowing, well that is beyond happiness, that is bliss."
—Henry Miller
Here's my Bliss List:

  1. When I hear from one of my students that something I did for them or with them was useful and helped them in some way.
  2. Hearing little kids say my name - especially my nieces.
  3. An unexpected call, text, or email from someone special.
  4. Making my Mom laugh really really hard.
  5. Squealing with excitement like I am 13-years-old (has happened a lot lately, most recently today)
My plan is to post a new one every now and then, so this is just my Bliss List for today.

What is your Bliss List?
