Sometimes we need to go looking for joy when life is tough.
Recently, I had an opportunity to write an article for Thrive Global. When I saw the topic of finding joy in tough times, I thought “Yes!” because I always want to re-enforce this message. Also, I’m encouraged to see that this is a conversation that we are having at large.
As many of you know, my commitment to joy and intentional living evolved out of my recovery from addiction. The full story in 6 minutes is right here.
In a nutshell, what I’ve learned is that it is the simple, consistent daily choices we make that have a transformative and profound effect over time. Creating practices that help us re-centre and align us with the life we want to create serve as a powerful GPS system.
In good times, I learned not take these practices for granted nor underestimate them. They help to build a solid foundation. Then, when times are tough these practices become essential. They are trusted tools for helping us cope and move forward as mindfully as we can.
That’s why I create intention card sets and talk about this. I want to remind you that the simple things you do every day make a big difference. Hope you enjoy the article and the video!
