Yay (def.) is an exclamation indicating joy, approval, congratulation, or triumph.

When I say “Yay” – you say “YAY” – Why? Because it feels so good. Why? Because it’s a perfect expression of joy; because even if you don’t feel like saying it, when you do say YAY – it makes you feel like saying it again – YAY!


Here’s an article on JOY & YAY… thanks to MetaVarsity for encouraging me to write it…


Wishing you all a year full of  YAY!!!

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
