The Give Joy Now project came about from, what I like to call, my “spiritual crisis”. About a year ago, I found myself soul-searching like never before. Nothing seemed right anymore and all the labels, titles and work I was doing seemed suddenly all wrong. I was lost, to say the least.
I decided I couldn’t pretend to be happy anymore so I shed myself of everything in my life that didn’t “fit” and set off on a mission to find myself again. After looking under a lot of “rocks” and hitting lots of brick walls, I realized the thing that made me happiest had never left – it was with me all along.
I loved to inspire people, uplift them, make their heart sing by showing them how beautiful and talented they are. I’m unequivocally an optimist in every sense of the word and I believe, without a doubt, anything is possible. After that “ah-ha” moment, I knew my purpose was to spread JOY!
So here I sit, in a room nearly empty with a couple of packed boxes at my feet. I’ve sold my house, let go of most of my personal possessions and I’m set to head out on the journey of my life. I’m not sure where this journey will take me or even if it will be successful, but that doesn’t matter to me because it’s not about what you have – it’s about what you give.
I invite you to join me on the journey, to share in the adventures, discoveries, successes and the failures. This isn’t just my journey, it’s OUR journey – and it begins today.
