Cherish Life, Creativity, Imagination, Joy

It Is All Make-Believe….

“Life is just a playground and a place for make-believe”.

✿ Come Play With Me 🙂 ✿

Every once in awhile I like to remind myself of this because I really believe it and I’ve even written about it before!

Have Fun! Be Creative! Color Outside The Lines!

We are here on earth to create, to have fun and to find JOY amidst all of the struggles we face. This is where the true fun is.

And when you remember this and you let your creative fun self out, channels open up that you would have never imagined! ( and please note imagination is very important in play and make-believe )….

I think the most important piece of the puzzle is to remember that if we make it all up, we can make up ‘good stuff’. Why on earth would we pick the stuff that does not make us feel good to do or to play? Like right now I am going to wrap up this post and go work in my kitchen and try some new recipes on my Sunday afternoon that is focused on self-care. This will bring me great JOY and health benefits that will be helpful for my body, mind and soul!

I hope that you go and ‘make-up’ your day and use your imagination to feel your passions. Have FUN and please be in JOY!

Love to all!

cancer, Joy, My Cancer Journey

Just One Letter Makes A Difference

I have been so excited to write this blog post! I could hardly wait in fact!

I have been sharing my new discovery with a few people and they were all WOWED by it so now I want to share it with everyone!

How this came to be is that one day I was thinking about my ‘full-time’ job of protocols that I am doing daily for my healing journey with my diagnosis of colon cancer. I thought to myself this is like a JOB. And then it hit me!…………..

I can’t think of this like a job and in that instant I had the vision of these two words: JOB and JOY!

And in that moment I knew that the only difference between the two was ONE LETTER!

It does not matter whether we are referring to a job, working at something, a project, a hobby, a healing protocol, or doing our taxes, it applies to all of it. We have to CHOOSE!

We have to CHOOSE! JOB or JOY?

One letter changes everything.

Not that there is anything wrong with the word job or in having a job, it is just that we often look at ‘jobs’ as work and something that is hard or tedious and that really puts the brakes on in our energetic field. And things just don’t flow like they should!

We must always have JOY in what we do and if we just can’t muster up the JOY to do our taxes because we see it like a JOB like I do lol, that is when we get someone else to do the things we don’t enJOY and we focus on the ones that we do enJOY. Personally I LOVE paying people for products and services that I need. It makes me HAPPY to do so. And if it is not in the budget to get people to do those ‘jobs’ that you don’t want to do, barter! Bartering is a great way to help others and yourself too! We can share our gifts and JOYs that way too!

But no matter what it is, when you shift from JOB to JOY the whole game changes. As for my healing protocol, I not only changed from JOB to JOY, I took it to the next level and turned it into EXCITEMENT! I am excited about my healing journey. I am embracing it and that makes is sooo much easier!

This shifting of one little letter was very refreshing for me to discover and I hope that you find this helpful too! 🙂

A New Twist on JOY!

Just Own Yourself

There is freedom in owning who you are and what you want in life. There is nothing better than feeling personally empowered. This is JOY!

The more that you embrace your true self and honor that, the more the JOY!

I hope that you find this true JOY in your life and live it every day! 🙂

Joy, Pain & Suffering

The Messages in Pain & Suffering

“These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them.” Rumi

What better to way to expand on this than with another Rumi quote:

“Through Love all that is bitter will be sweet, through Love all that is copper will be gold, through Love all dregs will become wine, through Love all pain will turn to medicine.” – Rumi

In life we cannot and will not escape pain and suffering but what we can do is take the messages from our experiences and turn them into catalysts to project us toward more JOY and BEAUTY and greater LOVE.

The greater the suffering, the greater the JOY on the other side. I have experienced great suffering in my life but I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt, it has shown me that when life is sweet, it becomes even sweeter….. but it has been the pain that has shown me this. Yes the GIFT of pain!

Right now, many of us are in more pain and fear than ever before and it is understandable but it is also an opportunity. It is an opportunity to take the messages from our pain and fear and cast them upon the sweetness. The darkest depth of despair also brings to light what is beautiful and also is a doorway for our heart’s expansion.

Once again, a Rumi quote comes to mind:

“The wound is the place where the light gets in”

Rumi

I encourage you to see your pain in a different light and to make it ‘light’ and easy. Ask your pain what messages are there for you to use as stepping stones to bringing more JOY and more JOYous moments into the precious time that is left for you here on your earthly journey. 🙂

In Love & Light and with a Light Heart…..

free will, Joy

Absolute Freedom

“The basis of your life is absolute freedom, the goal is joy, and the result of that perfect combination is motion forward, or growth. Your goal is to find objects of attention that let your cork raise.” Jerry & Esther Hicks, 1997

I received this quote in my email this morning and I really resonated with it. When I see the words ‘absolute freedom’ that appeals to me. 🙂

My goal in life is to live in JOY. I love freedom and I love JOY!

I think that the greatest gift that we have is in fact free-will and that is freeing in itself.

I personally, am very selective as to what information I access. For example, in my work as a wellness advocate and a Board Certified Nutritionist, I know that I can find a study on just about anything. So what I am referring to is that I can find information to prove just about any point and so can anyone.

So what’s my point right now? My point is that I bring to ME information and objects of desire that bring me JOY! Because I get it!

I could spend my day proving to myself with information out there, how terrible the world is or I can prove to myself how beautiful and JOYous the world is and I choose the latter.

In my playground of life I want fun times baby! I am wasting no time in suffering unless I don’t have a choice. I know there are times in life when pain and suffering happen to us because that is life, but in the moments in between I am riding the JOY train! 🙂

Have a great day everyone and I hope you too ride the train of JOY in your life too!

Joy, Living Fearlessly

Be Fearless

“Your fear is 100% dependent on you for its survival.” – Steve Maraboli

Picture of a woman sitting and looking forward to a lake or open space. With the quote on the picture.

When I saw this quote the other day, I KNEW that it was a keeper! I absolutely love it!

What I really like about it is that you could exchange the word ‘fear’ for other words and it still works.

For example: “Your happiness is 100% dependent on you for its survival.” 🙂

“Your JOY is 100% dependent on you for its survival.”

And sure other people can bring us JOY and happiness but if we cannot receive or see it, WE stop ourselves from experiencing it.

As for the fear one, just reading this quote and pondering on it brings me freedom. I do not have to let fear live in my mind rent free! I can got off its source of energy.

One of the best ways to shift from fear is to focus on love and gratitude. This instantly helps one to start shifting from vibrating at the level of fear and to start to move up the emotional and energetic ladder.

I have written about working with your thoughts to help with this as well. Here are a few links to past blogs posts that might help you if you are struggling with any of this:

I hope that you have found this helpful and that you strive to live fearlessly and in

Joy, Joy Pop, smiles

(っ◔◡◔)っ ♥ Smiles All-Around ♥

A young boy and his little sister who is holding a cat, in 1937. They both have huge smiles on their faces.

My friend Suanne shared this picture last year on Facebook. It is a picture of her father and his little sister in 1937. I just love it and think the world needs to both see and enJOY it.

Is it not the best? It just gives me so much JOY to look at this. Thank you to my friend for allowing me to share it with you all. 🙂

And please if you have any warm and fuzzy, heart lifting, bringing pictures of times gone by or even right now, please share them with me if you like and we can spread some 𝒥😍𝒴 with others.
