Joy in a messy world may seem like just another aspirational slogan — but it is, in fact, a way of deliberately engaging with life.
I’ve been warned against using it by “experts” who insist that a) no one wants to admit things are messy and b) to rally a community, we must promote a measurable, definable outcome — preferably one leading to money, fame or thinness.
The thing is… Life is always messy. Shit happens. We cannot control so many pieces of our experience. Yet we still have to show up, day in and day out.
LUCKILY, OUR CHOICE LIES IN HOW WE SHOW UP.
And I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to truly understand that!
There is nothing more freeing and powerful than showing up in joy. Joy means being authentic, being present and being grateful. It asks from us self-awareness, mindfulness, appreciation and hope.
Joy is big! Joy is deserving of our attention. Joy is worthy of being the outcome of our effort.
And you, honey? You are so capable of joy. And it will get easier and easier to practice with this supportive, fiercely loving and refreshingly honest community on your side.
Learning how to practice joy in a messy world is exactly what we do here at Stratejoy.
