COMMIT & find JOY

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…

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!

YES WE CAN…

This youtube link can be put in a global context and when I do, I cry tears of joyful possibility…

yes we can

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!!!

LOOK & FEEL GOOD

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…

thank 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

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…

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!)

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!

JOYful CHOICE

It’s the choices we make, not the chances we take, that create our destiny

Just 3 years ago, Larry was still a drug addict and criminal on the run from his life  the authorities. Today after handing himself into the police, choosing to take responsibility for his life – serving half of his 5plus sentence & re-connecting with his music; He is now FREE!

What is a JOY SESSION?

Joy Sessions can be tailor made and themed… they can last anything from 15minutes to a full day…

I have been officially facilitating joy for 7 years and I’ve found the swiftest ways to improve our Wellness and Uplift morale, is to inspire everyone to re-connect with their ability to play and laugh again.

A joy session is highly energetic and interactive and combines Laughter exercises with Playful games – activating the imagination and the happy hormones that physically enable a good mood. I’ve watched highly stressed adults arrive at a session cynical and unsure and within minutes I see them transformed into joyful and playful, anything is possible beings again.
