Sometimes I come across things that I become completely obsessed with. It can be foods, books, locations, sights, sounds, gadgets, thoughts…you name it.
If it brings me joy, I become slightly obsessed and attached to it. I remember the year I discovered Pinterest. I spent hours upon hours on that site!(still do) And this past Summer, I bet I ate a Strawberry poppyseed chicken salad from Panera at least twice per week. And there was the month I discovered their cinamon crunch bagels and was in that drive-thru three mornings per week. “Yes, slice and toasted and with honey walnut cream cheses please!” I can remember the time, my co-worker found this junk store back in my hometown that I had to visit every week just in case they got some new stuff in I didn’t know I needed. When I first moved to Columbus, I would go down to the RiverWalk just to hang out under this beautiful tree that was down there. Not only do I fall in love with my bliss list as I decided to call it, I want to share it. I’m sure my friends get tired of me loading the group chat with the new stuff I discover, they give me that thumbs up emoji though. LOL
I decided to devote a blog post to my obsessions.
Here is my Bliss List for October….a few of my favorite things
I think I just came across the podcasts that got me addicted by accident on Twitter. It’s called The Friend Zone and it’s a podcast devoted to all things mental health and mental wellness. It comes on once per week and I’m addicted. It’s funny and informative and the hosts are amazing. I started listening on mornings while getting ready and found it a welcome addition to my morning routine. But since it only came on once per week, I needed more to fill in my other mornings. I now subscribe to about 6 different podcasts throughout the week. My top three are The Friend Zone, Black Girl in Ohm, and the Vibrant Happy Woman podcast. But I just read that Oprah does one that is similar to her Super Soul Sunday show. I will be downloading those soon.
I fell in love with lavender when I had my last baby in 1999. Johnson and Johnson came out with a lavender scented baby bath and lotion and that stuff used to smell amazing. After a good bath and bottle he slept like a baby. I started noticing that just smelling it relaxed me. From then on I loved how lavender calmed me. Fast forward to 2017… I go to my favorite juice bar and I’m offered an energy shot and decided to try it. It’s coconut water mixed with essential oils. I instantly felt energized. I began to research them and now I’m obsessed with all of their vibrational and health benefits. Bliss Apothecary? Maybe? We’ll see! 🙂
I don’t know what this is. I just know it starts with a Scoby.
I said SCOBY not Scooby!! Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast…Chill Mr. Doo!
That Scoby is added to green or black tea, flavorings and other goodies and becomes just the thing my gut needs to stay healthy. It’s full of probiotics, which is great for your gut! And who doesn’t want a healthy gut?? The taste is interesting and I’m trying a lot of different flavors but these are my favorites.
You will be happy to know my gut is happy!
You are a badass. Yes. You. Are. And yes, it’s a compliment! I’m reading this amazing book by Jen Sincero and I’m obsessed. I want everyone that I love and know to read this book. It’s a funny, inspirational kick in the pants that makes you want to live your best life and be your best self. I love it. I’m forcing myself to just read a chapter per day so I can absorb each chapter but I could read it in one night it’s so well written. I am also fighting the urge to Snapchat and IG all the excepts from the book because I’m obsessed and I like to share, remember.
So that is what I’m obsessing about this month. What’s on your Bliss list?
Enjoy! Comment! Share!
