Finding the time, making the time to live both these inspired states of being, as often as possible and full of integrity…
The Giggle, sometime not easy to do, but with a simple shift of perspective, life’s challenges seem less serious – it’s amazing how a giggle even frees you from the frenetic on-goings of your mind…
The Gratitude – taking the time to appreciate, not just all we’re personally gifted in our lives, but every being we can appreciate too… The loved one – who once again prepared dinner, the staff at the till’s who serve us, the petrol attendant etc etc
My favorite joy trick of late: – I ask these service giving folk – “has someone appreciated you today?” : it always starts them thinking, then smiling and then often giggling as I tail off our interaction with; “thank you – I appreciate you and I hope many others now will too”
Gratitude – such a gift and tool to break down any wall… the one’s which internally block us from our humanKINDness and the outer walls which hinder us from deep connections too.

“Very enriching and a great release – thanks for all the tips and laughter”
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…
