Following Your Bliss

Following Your Bliss

Author Joseph Campbell often talked about ‘following your bliss’. There is this bus driver in Chicago who does just that. He sings while he drives. That’s right… sings! And he doesn’t sing.

Softly to himself either. He sings so loudly that the whole bus can hear! All day long he drives and sings.

He was once interviewed on Chicago television. He said that he is not actually a bus driver. “I’m a professional singer,” he asserted. “I only drive the bus to get a captive audience every single day.”

His “bliss” is not driving a bus, though that may be a source of enjoyment for some people. His bliss is singing. And the supervisors at the Chicago Transit Authority are perfectly happy with the whole arrangement. You see, people queue up to ride his bus. They even let other buses pass by so that they can ride with the “singing bus driver.” They just love it!

Here is a man who believes he knows exactly why he is here on earth. For him, it is to make people happy. And the more he sings, the more people he makes happy! He has found a way to align his purpose in living with his occupation. By following his bliss, he is actually living the kind of life he believes he was meant to live.

Not everybody can identify a purpose in life. But when you do, and when you pursue it, you will be living the kind of life you feel you were meant to live. And what’s more, you will be happy.

Have a happy day

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Bless you!
