Your human experience is your ultimate expression of personal joy.
Hard to believe? You’re not alone.
Many, many people believe that this life is meant to be a trial…
… and that’s okay.
It’s okay because your beliefs are an essential part of your human adventure…
And regardless of what beliefs you have, every belief eventually leads to the same conclusion:
Inner peace and joy can be part of your daily experience.
In fact, living joyously 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.
However, if there’s one thing humans are good at, it’s telling stories.
Our biggest story is that joy is something that needs to be pursued, captured, and possessed…
… and that’s why joy can appear to be so elusive.
Looking outside of yourself for something that’s part of you keeps you seeing what’s been there all along.
It’s time for a fresh perspective.

I embrace the totality of the human experience and I shine a light on the things you already have, but have stopped seeing. I live joyously and show you how to live joyously as well.
Welcome to your new adventure.
Enjoy the freedom of making your own choices. Be yourself and live your life while delighting in simple pleasures. Feel the excitement of every emotion without judgment and rejoice in who you are.
Let me be your guide. See your path to your joyous life.
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 saw the path that allowed me to do my greatest good.
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 being fearfully 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 most joyous 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 freed myself 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.
I can light your path and show you how YOU can walk it – joyously.
Take a step and see once more what it’s like to experience inner peace and joy every day.
