The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton


Welcome to my journey to live a more joyous life!

Now that I am firmly set in my middle-age, I know that there are a few tips and tricks to living more joyously that I have picked up along the way.  However, there is still much to be learned and done to enhance the joy in my life.  This website will be the place where I share what I’ve learned so far, what am experimenting with currently, and what intend to try!

Living joyously to me absolutely does not mean that I never have a down day, or that I always see the bright side of life.  Let’s be honest, when it’s cold outside and my bed is warm, I still sometimes have to drag myself out of bed.  That is part of the human condition.  Who doesn’t love to be cozy?  That’s not what this is about.

It’s not about seizing every moment in life – although, seizing moments is part of it.  Shaming yourself for wanting to stay in bed when the floor is cold is ridiculous in my opinion.  Living joyously is not about living perfectly or doing anything 100 percent of the time.  Living joyously is about living in alignment with your inner voice – the quiet one that guides you to make decisions that cultivate self-love and joy.  This doesn’t mean never eating a cookie or reading a gossip magazine, but being conscious about how we live and how our decisions make us feel about ourselves.

That is my overarching goal for myself.  I think on the cusp of 44 I’ve learned some things and gotten some minor amount of perspective.  I’ve started some good habits and kicked out some bad habits.  I will explore all of those here, and bring you along on my journey to project more love into the world, manifest financial independence, and discover wonderful books, habits, and possibly products that enhance the journey.

Although I don’t have all of the answers, and never will, I will share my experiences and discoveries with you.  Above all, I will be honest about my journey, sharing the lows as well as the highs.  We are all human.  We are all on a journey.  And, I sincerely believe that we all can benefit from hearing about each other’s stumbles as well as triumphs.

Wherever you are on your path, I hope you will join me on mine.  It is always better to make this journey with others.

In gratitude,
