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!!!
Whatever it is you want to do in your life – don’t delay COMMIT TODAY… do one thing that show’s every part of you that you’ve made a commitment to doing it – even if it’s a dream holiday – go find a picture of the island and put it somewhere visable, or the pottery, gym, language class that you’ve always wanted to do, make call’s today to find out how you can do them… “ask and you shall receive” is clearly in the bible – and we kind of ask and then start thinking how and block ourselves with the thoughts of their impossibility… From my own experience – my advise is we just need to put the REQUEST out clearly by making a commitment to doing it. Then let go and let GOD…
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!
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…

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!
This youtube link can be put in a global context and when I do, I cry tears of joyful possibility…
The hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in KwaZulu are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA;
we will remember that there is something happening in our Planet;
that we are not as divided as our politics suggests;
that we are one people;
we are one nation;
and together, we will begin the next great chapter in Earth’s story with three words that will ring from coast to coast;
from sea to shining sea – Yes. We. Can.
It’s simple these 3 words… say them , be them and create new ways of what we can again and again
Yes we can … support each other
YES WE CAN create good news
Yes We can live joyfully together
YES WE CAN!!!
Wow what a treat of weekend…
All the laughter blasters teamed up to support LAUGHTER COACHING and between us all we kept the Look & Feel Good Expo in joyful hysteria. Looking about the expo I saw families together living into the expo intention – LOOKing and FEELing GOOD. I guess with massages, pamperings, raw food and of course laughter it was easy for them to be so.
Together we are creating a more joyful and positively inspired world and it starts with choosing that it can be this way. So all of you that are being such awesome examples of humanKIND – thank you for being you…
And my sharing for the week is a simple one – let’s all choose what makes us look and feel good – for the benefit of others too. Imagine when you look at other people – look at them with the intention that they will feel good too and then the way you will look is really good – I guarantee… tee-hee
So EXCITING!!! Together with The Upliftment Programme, we have created this joyful, inspiring little 1minute film – “ONE WORD” and your vote can support us with a JOYful win!
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.
So JOY sUPporters… please pop onto www.possiblefuturesfilmcontest.com register and vote for JOY…
with giggles and gratitude
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
When I laugh, all that silly grumpy adult stuff just melts away… When I laugh – I feel so good, I feel my body tingle with joy and possibility…
and the good news is… it’s actually scientific – laughter increases the release of endorphins and seratonin and chemically after a good laugh – I actually really do feel better – YAY!!!
So I find myself thinking if we know laughter’s so good for us, how do we get more and more of it and how do we get others to get more too… Well it takes us all creating it and here’s the thing – if we’re joyful we are peaceful too
SO BE PART OF WORLD LAUGHTER DAY THIS YEAR and LAUGH for WORLD PEACE (your peace and for everyone else too)
ON SUNDAY MAY 1st – thousands will be laughing together for world peace
this is what we’re doing in Cape Town – a laughter flashmob at the V&A Waterfront at 12h25 exactly – see the link below for more info
hee hee hee – ho ho ho
Yay precious sUPporters of JOY…
Wow this joy journey is just wonderful… everyday I am amazed at the inspired transformation happening to this planet. I live a life full of miracles and I am so excited to be part of the family of solution-orientated folk who are all taking daily actions to share possibility, grow dreams and transform our world…
As promised – here’s your monthly UPlifting episode… intended to share stories of some of these beings…
This episode is especially focused on Dr Louise Van Rhyn – the founder of SYMPHONIA, an organisation strengthening the fabric of South African society. She is an inspired example of humanKIND, a remarkable reminder of the individual contribution we can ALL make when we choose to be of purpose and choose to live in possibility!
The UP is a monthly UPlifting programme – showcasing people on THE UP – truly inspired, solution-orientated individuals who are transforming the planet. Proudly brought to you by The UP and myself – with our combined passion for sharing the Healing Power of JOY. “Joyful people are creative and caring people”
SPECIAL THANKS to:
Dr Louise Van Rhyn & Symphonia – http://www.symphonia.net
These UPlifting programs’ are made manifest by charitable contributions – if you would like to sUPport the growth of joy – go to www.up.givengain.org and sUPport us (with giggly gratitude)
It’s the choices we make, not the chances we take, that create our destiny
