so Grateful…

I’m now past the first phase of my 2012 LOVE & JOY tour –  MAfrika2012 and I’m here just thinking “WOW” – I am so so so BLESSED!

Amazing friends and supporters have stepped in and thrown, time, money and creative resources and proven to me the power of Einstein statement ” if you can imagine it – you can create it” WOWZER Einstein you were right on it… Thank you!

Thank you for your genius, now that I’m really living it – I keep imagining more and more of us choosing love, choosing kindness and choosing care for each other…

TOGETHER WE REALLY CAN!

together we can

Thank you to all my new and old friends, thank you to all the schools, thank you to the 1500plus DEAR ONE’S who’ve seen MAfrika and continue to live her message of LOVE, JOY & UNITY…

I am so so so so grateful for this awesome, amazing and wonderful journey in which I get to live my talents & bliss and inspire others to do the same! LIFE IS GRAND!

As MAfrika would say “Mintyl HaXaku” (I LOVE YOU) and love you I do…

JOY remember…

I’ve had the most awesome interactions with fellow joy activists

Volunteers who continue to make a remarkable joyful difference in the world – either as Care Clowns or Joy or Laughter Facilitators and it has got me thinking…

REMEMBER when you were little and you didn’t know of anything wrong – you might even have to go back to the womb (science has proven we are smiling in the womb by the way)… REMEMBER your inherit joy – it’s something we were all born with –

the knowing that this life:

it’s ALL beautiful, it’s all in harmony and it’s all an awesome amazing opportunity to play and learn and share and grow…

REMEMBER that smile that comes from your ALL knowing-ness

YOU ARE LOVED!!!

Remember you choose – so SMILE!

HELP ME CREATE MY BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!!!

Dearest JOY SUPPORTERS, friends and family…

Most of you know for the past 8 years I’ve been committed to my charity The UPliftment Programme and sharing the healing power of JOY.  We have grown from just 2 volunteers, Care Clowning at Red Cross Children’s hospital. To over 75 volunteers nationwide – UPlifting in excess of 3500 children every month.

And right now I’m asking you to help make my Birthday Celebration – my best ever…

yay happpppyyyyy

I’m not asking for presents, sweet words or cards this year – this year I’m asking you ALL to become monthly supporters of JOY…

LOTS OF A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY!

I am envisioning a few hundred of my nearest and dearest all making monthly contributions (the amount depends on your budget – even as little as R50 every month will make a remarkable difference to UP sustainably sharing and growing JOY!) And if you just want to make a once-off BIRTHDAY donation – that too will be greatly appreciated.

We’ve set it UP – so donating is super easy – please go to www.up.givengain.org. and set up your once off or monthly donation.

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

JOY of journaling

We all have simple ways to connect us to our JOY and one of mine had been calling me for days… and this morning I re-connected with it…
My journal…

A beautiful calligraphy pen, the little notes I stuck in it to uplift and inspire me – early in the year – are an added Blessing to this inspired ritual for me…
Blogging has the essence of joy sharing – which makes it special in it’s own way, but journaling – is my private JOY experience – the special word place where I can reflect without judgement and connect with my Creator with love and gratitude for the lessons and provisions…

Inspired!

Had to share the joy it created, with the hope that those who read this will be inspired to make the time for those special things which BRING joy exclusively to YOU and God…

With giggles and gratitude and love and light

Giggles and Gratitude

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.

Giggles and Gratitude to you all!
