What if you could don glasses that would help you see the world in a whole new light and realize that we are all connected heart to heart, regardless of circumstance? How would your relationships change?  What wounds might you heal for yourself and others?

A typical day in the life of a young professional begins with him hustling down his stairs and into his car, finding things to be unhappy about nearly every moment, that he narrates in his head. Most are minor inconveniences in the grand scheme of things such as a neighbor child riding his skate board in the street, to someone taking the parking spot he wanted, to having to wait in line  for a cup of coffee.  It is when he is handed a pair of specs by a stranger that he is able to see clearly that everyone he has encountered that day, has a story to tell, a challenge that they face which invite love and compassion. Some have labels such as:

Just lost his job

Fighting addiction

Avoids relationships for fear of pain

Struggling with finding purpose

Discontent with life

Needs a hug

These become a call to action for him to make a difference in the life of one person who I am certain will pay it forward in some way and cause a ripple effect that may even touch the folks this man has ‘met’ throughout that 24 hour period.

In that way, both he and the world are served.

Pity Party
I had to giggle when I saw this meme, created by Theresa Byrne, another contributor to The Good Men Project,  since it was sucked right out of my spinning mind. Many's the time I have petulantly pouted about the way life events were unfolding. I have stomped and stormed, raved and raged (interna

Making The Ordinary Come Alive
  I became an adoptive parent in 1992, when diminutive blond haired, green eyed Adam became my son. I like to say that my stretch marks are on my heart, not my hips. A high energy kiddo with his own ideas of how life should be, there were times when I questioned my ability to keep up with hi

Changing the Dishes
  Fellow Good Men Project author Thomas Fiffer shared his insights about the holiday of Passover. I saw his blog entry this morning as I was contemplating what to write for today's Bliss Blog. Having been raised in a Jewish home, Passover was eagerly anticipated all year long. The pre-holi

Self Imposed Slavery
Tonight marks the first night of Passover which commemorates the journey from slavery to freedom of the Jews in Egypt who were compelled to work at the peril of their own lives.  Jews around the world (and others who are invited guests as they were in my childhood home) will gather to celebrate a

That's What Makes You Strong
  Another soul passed into the Light yesterday to join the celestial choir. I first heard Jesse Winchester's music in the 80's. As a consummate singer songwriter, he had  a gift for vivid imagery that took the listener along for the ride. Songs such as Mississippi, You're On My Mind,
