Finding JoyJoy has been on my mind a lot these days. It could be because of the moments I’ve been having lately savouring the present, taking time to stop, slow and devour what getting out of your head can actually do for one’s happiness.

For 3 years I have been traveling the road of discovering the sweet spot of life, what it means to truly be happy and the role that joy plays. I have realized that joy is the very essence of our being, the very purpose of our existence and it is our job to ensure that we are living that joy in every corner of our life.

We seem to have a distant relationship with joy; we are addicted to struggle. It’s as if we proudly wear a badge of honour displaying our struggles every day around the water cooler. Ironically, expressing the joyful things in our life seems to sometimes be a struggle.

But living in joy, in complete joy, surrounded and supported by joy is our birthright. It is our inherent gift to the world to turn our face to the sun of our life, to the sweet nectar of our souls, to find joy in the smallest of miracles; a smiling face, a flower blooming, a child’s giggle, a birds song.

It is in this place that we change the very world we live in.
