Looking around these days, evidence of stress and depression is obvious. Few people seem to be laughing or smiling and the majority seem so caught up in resignation and cynisism. Yet coming from South Africa, I am part of a community super conscious of the power that individuals can have, our very own Madiba (Nelson Mandela) is a precious example of this. So I reckon if we ALL individually starting being the way of this one word – we would have a whole lot more joy on this planet and more joy means more peace and more solution-orientation…

We ALL have the potential to be the way of this ONE WORD and BE magnificent humanKIND.

ME

The UP has been actively sharing joy since 2003, their main outreach has been to the children in hospitals & institutions, where trained UP volunteer Care Clowns commit to their local hospital/home every week and share joy there with the children, parents and staff. Currently in Southern Africa there are over 75 volunteer Care Clowns and a monthly JOYful Upliftment of approximately 3500 people. go to www.theup.org.za for more info

Heart Shapes a JOY for me

They are so simple, so over used and yet they are still a great gift and a symbol of love, peace, play and joy to me.

I even believe that God knows I love them so much so he lets me know where to look, so I don’t miss the puddle shaped like one or the cloud puffed in heart perfection…

I’ve just returned from an inspired trip to Namibia – where I integrated the Joy Activist with Stand UP comic and an 85minutes of pure joy… It was a treat and it also gifted me some family time with my folks, siblings, nephews and niece.

I did however loose one of my very favourite earings at my niece’s dedication party. these gorgeous leather polka dots dangles, which I’d swiftly grown attached to – were now un-paired. I said a little prayer, hoped the angels would help them to be re-united and went to sleep. When I awoke my precious Da had gone to the frosty field and found the lonely earing. Just a meter away, lay a little felt heart…

My Da had brought them both back to me – so beautiful… this little sign the angels had left and so wonderful that I got to share it with my dad and now all of you…

Heart shapes continue to be a joy for me and I’m so very grateful for all the abundant blessings of joy in my life

That little heart sybolises the Joy I’m blessed to share with the world, my precious family, my deep gratitude to Big Dad and the Great Love that continues to flourish in these changing times…
