“And maybe time was invented so that misery might have an end…and bliss, just the opposite is eternal? There is no time in bliss. All the clocks were thrown out of heaven.”

From Henderson the Rain King by Saul Bellow

Quite the opportunity – maximizing bliss. When time just flies by and we don’t even notice. 

Think about this idea – a life where work is not really work at all, but another opportunity to experience joy, where every minute feels like it is invested versus spent. 

That’s the life I want – how about you? In my purposeful work seeking ideal fit between professionals and employers, as well as in the community service worlds where I am honored to serve, I get to see a lot of people who find their bliss and stay there.

This unique book by Saul Bellow is about a journey of personal discovery wrapped in a global trip and the amazing things he experienced. I’m constantly reminded that my own journey goes on no matter where I am. 

Here’s wishing each of us more bliss and less misery as we navigate our own journeys.
