Ok, so you've seen the word joy come up A LOT on this page. You might be asking yourself, does this lady truly believe that a life without pain is possible? No, I don't believe that. Pain is inevitable, it's real, and it's...painful. But pain is also beautiful and informative and, if you let it be, transformative.
What I do believe is that a life without suffering is possible. And that our suffering is created by the stories we tell ourselves about the world (remember the one I had about worthwhile things being hard?)
The good news is you can change the story and redefine the game. And that's where the magic lies.
This is what joy means to me:
Playing the game
Embracing the chaos
Finding perfection in whatever comes my way
Letting go of control
Play (yes, it's so important I said it twice)
Are you ready to find your joy?
