Bliss Bits 4/2/2015

It snowed in Park City last night. It wasn’t much snow, and it happens literally every year, but it shouldn’t be a surprise that I was not a happy camper when I woke up this morning. I’ve been reveling in the recent early spring sunshine. The April Fool’s Day storm reminded me of my first real post on The Usual Bliss after an unexpected storm exactly three years ago. It was that storm (and my subsequent “A-ha!” moment) that started this site. I had no idea as I typed those words of hopeful optimism what struggles we’d face in the coming years and what a challenge it would be to stay positive. It’s my attitude that dictates the joy I feel in my life, and that belief is stronger than ever. As I realized three years ago, there are things to be grateful for in every second of the day. They are easy to find… if you take a moment to look for them.
