Many years ago, I created the Simple Joy philosophy. It was based on 3 very simple rules:
- Keep It Simple, Sweetie;
- Ask for Help;
- Take Care of Yourself.
At the time, NO ONE was writing or talking about simplifying your life or discussing the importance of joy. It’s not easy to build a following when you are the only one that sees the importance of your message. Fortunately, women today have a better understanding of the importance of simplification & joy.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t practicing what I preach! I was great at telling other women what THEY needed to do but really bad at doing it myself. For too many years, I tried to find satisfaction in things, especially things that brought me status. I seemed to focus on the third rule & ignored the others. Worse still, I only took care of my external needs, like my clothes & appearance.
Things have changed. I really am into the simple things now. I get greater satisfaction out of riding my nifty pink cruiser bicycle around town than I would driving a luxury car. I’d rather spend time with people, especially women, helping them discover ways to enjoy the simple things, too!
This blog is where I show you how I live MY Simple Joy Life. May it inspire you to begin living yours!
Hugs & Blessings!
