A Brand New Day Full of Joy…


Welcome to my joy filled, peace filled space.  May you feel welcome here today and each day that you choose to visit…

Sunrise off the boat

“Unfolding Your Path to Joy” believes that each day is a day of celebration!  A day to release expectation and open my heart fully to each moment as it is presented.  A day to allow wondrous Love to wrap around me and work “magic”..beyond what I can ask for or imagine.  A day to say ‘Thank You!’ to Universe, God, Nature, the skies.  A day to bask in the sunshine and dance in the moonbeams! 

I wake and today is labelled New Year’s Day.  I love New Year’s Day..fresh, clean, as beauty filled as I allow it to be; however, each and every day has this potential! So, I release the label, and along with that release is the release of expectation.  (*Please note that this method may be used with any label– when you release the label, the experience may unfold as it was meant to and unconditional love may be fully present, rather than imposing human conditions upon it*).

“Unfolding Your Path to Joy” doesn’t write out lofty lists, review the past year, celebrate differently because there is a label on the day. “Unfolding Your Path to Joy” allows her heart whispers to roam free daily, and if she is going to create a list, it is a gratitude list so that each item may be checked off and celebrated!  I honor my heart whispers because they are my Truth; goals may unintentionally infer “less than”, yet my heart Knows that ‘more than’ is available each moment I choose to open to it.  It is my choice…

There are a few things that are new and different within these pages.  The first is my writing style.  My heart is open most fully to my inner Truth, and that is what I choose to share in these pages.  I am a woman of peace, joy, love..I honor unfolding…I revel in magic, beauty, nature…I find the positive in All…and I Love unconditionally.  Some of what  present in these pages may be unique ideas or a different way of approaching something.  I understand that.  Fully.  Please choose what your heart says Yes! to and release all else. 

This month of January, I will participate in RAOKA this Wednesday with an article dedicated to *simplicity* and the rest of the month will be a series on self-love.  I’ve heard this ‘story’ too often: we give others our absolute best, work magic so that loved ones may watch as their dreams are realized, share our most amazing energy..then at the end of the day feel exhausted and alone.  I love you with my Being, and I want you to experience peace, joy, wonder, magic, love, for your self..even as you share with others..so we will explore self-love together.  I am most excited and humbled to share this series with you.

I have resisted modern media for some time.  My personal Truth is that I enjoy heart connections with my readers.  I visit your blogs so that I may learn, I email and correspond outside of this space because I truly want to Know you.  I celebrate these connections: life enriching, fulfilling, inspirational, motivating.  Thank you!  Truly.  I will be embracing modern media with Twitter and Facebook accounts and will provide the links to these soon.  On Twitter I am joychristin and on Facebook I am Joy Christin Detor Holland. 

The last new and different item is that I am offering to new subscribers a six-week email course on “Unfolding Your Path to Joy”.  This course is delivered in one week installments to your inbox.  If you are a current subscriber and are interested in receiving this course, please email me at joychristin@yahoo.com.

Thank you for sharing energy in this space.  Please know without a doubt that you are loved beyond measure, exactly where you are, exactly as you are..and life is as joy filled, peace filled, abundantly magical as you allow it to be:) 

May this day be exactly as your heart wishes it to be..

What magic shall you create today?

Much peace,

    It’s great that you’re releasing any labels for New Year’s Day. I like that! It is true that just about any day can have its potential. Every moment can be lived anew.

    I love your energy and messages of joy. Can you include me in the newsletter series?

    Dear Joy,

    I keep coming back to look at the Sunrise photo 🙂 Simply stunning!

    I love your idea for a month of self-love. Healthy self-love is so important in daily life!

      Hi Peggy,
      The sunrise photo is one of my favorites because it was taken moments before extreme weather hit. I find if I appreciate the golden moments when they are presented, the not so golden moments are much more easier to process…
      I do hope you are able to join me this month..you inspire me so!
