My name is Joy. I often say I am a woman having a love affair with the world! I am delighted to be the mother of two pre-teen children; the only single mom locally raising her two children on a sailboat. Enthusiastic, daring, passionate, energetic are a few words that describe me. Caring, kind, generous, compassionate, nurturing are a few more. I do not believe in labels, however, for you to “know me” I am a life coach, an inspirational writer, a motivational speaker, and the hostess of this blog. This blog is one resource I use to promote a peace filled, joy filled life.

I believe that:
Love truly is the Answer. Each and every time. No exception.
This day is a gift! My heart overflows with gratitude for the experience to be Alive in this day. When I wake in the morning, I stretch and say “Thank you for this day and All in it”..and then I begin to move throughout my day.
It is my pleasure to love you as you are. Not who you once were or who you strive to be, but who you are at this moment. As an Empath with a gift of clarity, I Feel you and Know you. The real You, the inner core. Sometimes even before you Known yourself. And I love you! Sometimes even when you don’t love yourself. I celebrate you and all that you reflect to me!
As I open my heart to the moment as it is presented to me, there is a natural flow to my day. In such a space, each moment is one heart connection followed by another. When I close my heart, I am limiting the natural flow.
I am given this moment so I choose to live it fully. I shall not label an experience “good” or “bad”..it purely is. I turn off my mind and allow my senses to lead. My senses Feel the moment, while my entire Being experiences it. I choose to live mindfully present, investing my energy into the moment I am in. To live in such a way, I’ve released my story, which I share here so it may inspire you…and you may read by clicking the link.
Life is meant to be a joy filled experience, as ease free/struggle free as I allow it to be. If I am struggling, I am resisting something significant. To release struggle, I drop resistance.
There is a God who holds my hand, and an Energy Flow throughout the Universe..and when I stand strongly in Faith anything truly is possible.
My life is as magical as I allow it to be. Sure, that may sound polly-annish to some, but it’s my Truth. And I lovingly challenge you to embrace the magic surrounding you and let it work in your life.
My body is my physical shell. It is my honor to love my body as it is because it is what houses my Spirit. It is my pleasure to take good care of this body so that I may explore as much of Earth as possible, experience fully all activity that delights me, move freely through my heart connections. If my body has limitations, I have imposed those limitations upon it. I celebrate what my body can do rather than beat it up for what I feel it cannot.
The sky is my ceiling, the ocean my floor (I live on a boat), the hills my “walls”, the islands my playground. Nature is not “out there”, She is my home. I lovingly experience All that she presents me with..I celebrate the sun rise and sleep under the moon beams and give praise for everything in between. Because I love Her, I choose to interact with Her in a respectful, gentle manner.
What I invest my Energy into is what will grow. I choose to invest my energy through my heart space. I choose to find, nourish, and grow the positive in the moment. I choose to love Fully.
What is Unfolding?
Unfolding simply means that all that is necessary in my life is already in it; it unfolds naturally as long as I allow for it. Allowing is much like tending a garden, providing the necessary components for healthy, whole, beautiful. Lovingly, tenderly caring for each and every plant; pulling weeds is a pleasure because it allows room for beauty to grow, praising along the way for the beauty around me.
