Today was an awesome day! I was helping out at the kids art camp and I had such a blast. I made sculptures and paper mache pinatas and mixed paint for the kiddos. I learnt how to use a saw and shared my fear of glue guns with the children. I was covered in paste at one point and had kids hanging off me at another. I became best friends with the little boys and girls and talked about godzilla, fire-breathing turtles and superheroes. I was surrounded by imagination and creativity unbounded and it made me so happy. I think this might be one of the happy places I can later picture when I am sad.
I then got a nice phone call from someone important and it made me even happier to be able to share my joy and excitement with somebody. 🙂 So, to cap off my happy day, I decided to make myself a happy smoothie. This is not at all healthy and is loaded full of fattening stuff. It was filled with yummy things and reminds me of childhood, candy and bliss. It also was one of the most tasty ways to drink my daily collagen powder, so that’s a plus. I wouldn’t drink it every day, but once in a while, just to cheer myself up, I would indulge in this yummy treat.
I named it “bliss” because that was the feeling it invoked. It was also the emotion I feel when I don’t over-analyze things and simply enjoy what life has to offer. It captures that “let-it-go” feeling. And here is my “bliss”:
Enjoy your “bliss”!
