I'm Steph, I run the Blissful Blue Jays blog.
What is the point of life? Why are we here?
This is what I asked myself this year when my very young mother passed away just a few months after finding out she had an aggressive cancer. There were no symptoms until it was too late. She was my best friend.
You see, I have always been a go-getter.
I'm a 30-something-year-old mompreneur. I've spent the last decade working in various marketing roles, helping companies of all sorts expand their businesses. While I loved working in that industry, I decided to do something bigger. My soul wanted more.
So again I asked myself, what IS the point of life? Why are we here in this physical world? I must have asked a dozen people this when my mom died. I asked every preacher that came to pray over her on her deathbed. After her passing, I read every book I could get my hands on that might answer this question.
I came to realize my mom isn't gone forever, her time here in this physical world was just up. She's now waiting for me to finish my life out here, and I get signs from her all the time that she is still alive and well.
This physical world we are in, it's a gift. This life is all about experience, and living it to the absolute fullest. Overcoming obstacles, learning lessons, growing... and being happy is what it's all about.
We are given this amazing gift of experience, what are you going to do with it?
While I've always done everything I can to live life to the fullest, my mom's sudden passing made me realize there's so much more to do. This life can be absolutely amazing if you allow it.
Is this my "something bigger?" Helping people achieve happiness? Helping people to live better, bigger, more purposeful lives?
You see, my most favorite thing to do is work on self-improvement. I research like crazy and get excited at all of the information I come across. I read every book, watch every video and find every product/gadget/company that I think can improve my life.
My second favorite thing? Sharing those discoveries with others so they can also improve their life, one step at a time.
I'm not just talking about one area of your life. I believe we really can have it all, we just have to strive for it. Nothing will ever be perfect, but it can be really really great. Whether it's taking small steps to be a better parent or spouse... there's help out there. Because your relationships with people are important.
If you want to reach success, grow your business, move up in your career, make more money... it can all be achieved.
If you want to take better care of yourself, have incredible health, look your best, feel your best, and have solid mental health... again, there are resources.
You want to get married, why not experience the wedding of your dreams? You want to travel, why not make the most of your trips? In everything you do, ask yourself, "how can I make this experience... amazing?"
Don't worry, I'm going to help you the best I can!
My goal is to create a massive well-respected platform through Blissful Blue Jays that people can count on to find great information for all areas of life. I work with experts in different fields to help people solve problems. I research products and companies. I write about my own experiences and experiments. There are some big plans and goals for this blog!
Life is precious, it's truly a beautiful delicate thing. We should live it to the fullest while we are here and I'm going to help you do just that.
To happiness, health and success... and people.
