4. Cultivating Joy in Your Life
What is Joy to you, Nancy?
My husband and I talked about this over our nighttime tea last night. I said, “Joy to me is the taste and smell of a fresh warm cup of coffee or this tea (but truth be told, coffee is one of my guilty pleasures); Joy is also my comfy reclining chair wrapped in a cozy, soft throw blanket and a good book. Joy is a walk on the trails around my house and delicious home-cooked food.
Joy to me is all the little things in my daily life that happen in the present moment. Joy is something I cultivate within.
We often say, “I’ll be happy when I shed this 10 or 20 lbs.” “I’ll be happy when I achieve that next promotion or new house.” “I’ll be able to enjoy my life once my son/daughter or mom/dad are squared away. It’s like our happiness is put on hold until some external circumstance out of our control is achieved. Or in the case of weight loss, we have control of what we do but don’t recognize the mental and emotional pieces are vitally essential for the success of weight loss.
When we practice feeling joy filled, we see life experiences from a different perspective. We encourage hope, optimism, and positivity. That perceptive assists us instead of hinders us. The challenge lies in being aware of our emotions and our thoughts.
This week I encourage you to cultivate present-moment joy. Ask yourself “How can you enable a sense of joy regardless of external circumstances?”

Hear what Cara had to say about my coaching program:
“I cannot say enough positive things about Nancy and how monumental her program has been for me! I came to Nancy to better understand how to change my mindset to creating a more positive outlook on life and the ability to live fully in the present. My journey with Nancy has helped me to understand how to be true to myself, manage thought patterns and how to live life to the fullest even through adversity. Making the decision to reach out to Nancy and follow through with her program has been one the best decisions I have ever made for myself. Her mentorship, guidance and compassion have allowed me to see the world in a different light. I look forward to continuing to work with her and highly recommend her to individuals who want to better themselves and their lives by creating positive change in the world :)” – Cara
