Heads up: joy and happiness are not the same thing.
The way I differentiate the two is that JOY comes from the inside-out. It’s that feeling of being satiated by meaningful connection with yourself, your girls and everyone and everything else, too.
Happiness is a combo of a positive mood and satisfaction with life.
Neither is to be confused with stringing together a whole bunch of momentary pleasures. Those of us who do that are neither happy nor full of joy, we’re on a mission not to feel anything beneath the surface, so we focus on fun, fun, fun!
Instead of worrying about what’s going on over there, let’s #DoThisThing to find our joy right here. There’s nothing quite like having our brains and bodies, our heads and our hearts, in the same place at the same time.
Let’s #DoThisThing and give it go. Oh, joy!
