A joy-centred life
You may think looking at that photo that we are a fun-filled family who really know how to laugh at ourselves.
This is true on the day this photo was taken. Man, it did us so much good to loosen up, to laugh and to get covered in some coloured flour, just for the joy of it.
You see, I've been a pretty serious person these last few years. Putting most of my energy into nurturing a family and growing a business. I feel like me when I go deep and meaningful with people, and I will always, always love this. But I'm slowly learning that deep and meaningful doesn't mean I can't be joyous. Fun. Yellow. Silly.
Joy has been wanting to party with me for a little while and it's doing me so.much.good you wouldn't believe. If you'd asked me before if joy was missing from my life, I would have said absolutely not, I'm really happy. And this was true. But joy isn't the same thing as happy. Joy is silly dance parties. Joy is waking up with a smile on my face because life is damn good. Joy is summoning up that goofy kid in me and delighting in the simplest of things.
Last week I lost my joy mojo and I felt sad that it was such a fleeting feeling. But by looking after myself a bit more (ie sleeping), it's been restored. Joy is back and it feels like this is the natural state we were born to be in. Life is fun.
I'll tell you more about how I maintain joy in a different post, but for now I'm going to leave you with two incredibly joyous people who are on a whole different level to me - Tommy Franklin and Candace Payne. Pure joy, all love and absolutely no worrying about what other people think!
