Live Joyously






Your human experience is your ultimate expression of personal joy.

Perhaps you’ve been told that this life is a trial and that true joy can only be experienced when this life is over.

I disagree.

This life is the ultimate expression of your soul’s insatiable desire to learn more, to do more.

And you know what? Living a joyous life is as natural as breathing. You’re doing it right now.

You just can’t see it. Why?






The stories you tell yourself blind you to what you already have.






Joy is an essential part of you.

You cannot be separated from it.

A fundamental Tenet of Joy is that your human experience is your ultimate expression of personal joy.

However, you probably grew up with stories that encouraged you to believe that joy only comes from outside.

“If you please the people in your life, you will find joy.”

You follow that advice, but at the expense of your own emotional well-being.

The result is that you wall yourself off from your connection to Source, you fear your emotions, you resist the ones you label as bad, and you become a prisoner of the stories you tell.

You judge others, and you allow others to judge you. Your stories of judgment become your focus, and in the end you forget your true voice – the voice that frees you to live the most joyous live you can.

It’s time to break free.

My Journey






I was an prisoner in a jail of my own making.

It wasn’t until I let go of fear and I stopped trying to make others happy that I tasted true freedom.

It took me more than four decades to learn how to say “no” to others so I could say “yes” to me. When I did, I found my voice. Choosing to focus on my own expressions of joy empowered me to take ownership of my life and release the stories that held me captive. In the process, I discovered the power to do my greatest good. I now have the freedom to give more than I ever did before.

The definition of “selfish” isn’t what  you think.

I had to “unlearn” a great many things before I understood that being selfish isn’t a bad thing and that joyous selfishness isn’t the same as fear-based selfishness.

The fearfully selfish person asks the question, “Is there enough for me?”

The joyously selfish person asks the question, “Is this what feels best for me?”

While the fearfully selfish person looks outside of themselves to feel good, the joyously selfish person looks for the best way to share the truest aspects of themselves with the world around them.

It was a hard lesson.. but I eventually I realized that by making the decisions that felt best for me, I gave myself the freedom to be truly selfless.

Now, one of my greatest expressions of Joy is helping the people around me discover their personal power, voices, and truth.






Joyous living starts with a belief.






The belief can be whatever you want…

… as long as it feels better than the beliefs you currently have.

The good news is that once you have that belief, it is enough to take your first step – and you don’t have take it alone.

I am the guide who can help you believe.

I can light your path, but YOU are the one who gets to walk it.

I invite you to take that first step and discover what it’s like to experience inner peace and joy every day.
