Follow your Bliss. It’s Not Cliche.

Follow your Bliss. It’s Not Cliche.

Following your bliss’ is neither dead nor cliche. Not in my book. I was in line at Whole Foods of all places and heard someone say Joseph Campbell, had become a cliche and that this idea of following your bliss was great for coffee mugs, canvas totes, note cards, t-shirts, but it was in fact… dead. “Hmmmm?
