"Action is the antidote to despair" - Joan Baez

I am a proud joy activist.  That means that my mission is to live in the high vibration of joy as much as possible so that I can help others to do the same.  That’s why I wrote my book Being Joy™.

You see, I heard more and more people say they were feeling overwhelmed with worry and short on inspiration. And they simply didn’t feel the same passion for life that they once did.

Can you relate?

Then I began noticing how disconnected many people were feeling from themselves and from others. They became vulnerable to the trappings of quick-fix distractions like drugs, alcohol, gambling, shopping or food. Bottom line—they just wanted to remember what real joy felt like again before it was too late.

Does this sound like someone you know? 

I then began to observe that when people combined purpose with passion, their joy expanded. And once that happened, their peace of mind, as well as their physical and even financial health began to improve.  All because their vibrational frequency was increasing. You see, that’s when the magic happens!


Imagine what our world would look like if everyone was living in joy frequency.  Imagine the ecological, medical, and social impact that would have on our planet!

We could literally heal our lives and change the world!  And it’s easier than you might think.

You see joy is a choice.  It’s a habit we build with practice.

Just like choosing peaceful thoughts rather than thoughts of worry and anxiety.  Like becoming the champion for what we want in life, because we know we are worthy.  Like leading the way for others when they stumble and have lost their internal compass.

So here’s my challenge for you.

Over the next 40 days, I’d like you to select one project that you can really get passionate about – one thing that when you think about it, your joy vibe automatically starts to increase, and your peace of mind returns.

Good, because we want to sustain that feeling over the next 40 days.

Why?  Because in my experience it takes 40 days to adopt a new habit.  And this habit is all about raising your vibration so that you are living in joy frequency, the highest frequency there is.  Then watch what starts to happen in your life!

Here are some examples of a passion project that you might want to consider:

  • Create an inspirational book club where you only read books that are uplifting for the spirit
  • Start a meditation ritual of 15 minutes every day to tune in to your inner peace and wisdom
  • Say thank you to someone different every day for 40 days.  Could be in a text, email, phone call or in person.
  • Get passionate about your body by committing to some form of physical activity every day for at least 20 mins.
  • Start your day by journaling for 15 minutes about what brings you joy
  • Embark upon a 40-day creative project such as painting, drawing, sewing, writing or any other artistic expression.  The challenge is that you must spend some time each day on that project, even if it is only a short period of time.

The important thing is not to feel that your project is a chore, otherwise you won’t be bringing the joy energy to it.  Whatever you choose needs to be done with peaceful intention fueled by your passion and purpose.

Got one?  Excellent.

So, here’s what my challenge is going to be over the next 40 days.  

Because letting go is such an important part of releasing attachments that can get in the way of peace of mind and joy, I’m going to commit to releasing one thing that no longer serves me, one thing a day for 40 days.  I can already think of a few things, such as clothing that I no longer wear or that fits, household items that I no longer use.  How about old paperbacks that are sitting in storage.  And it could even involve letting go of past memories or relationships that I have moved on from.

Again, the important thing for me to do with this passion project is to bring compassion to the activity.  For each item or memory that I release, I will do it with gratitude for the role it played in my life and to lovingly let it go.

All of these examples are acts of activism.  For in the broadest definition, an activist is a person who campaigns for some kind of social change.  And the social change a joy activist will be bringing to the world is that of shifting to a more harmonious, peaceful, and equitable world for every living thing.

Activism takes courage.  And it’s a team sport.  So let’s all do our part.  I challenge you!

Love from your Joy Mama
