I felt so much joy being able to share Mother’s Day and the joy energy with my mom. Watching her receive flowers and putting that smile on her face that helped her to know that I value and appreciate her brought joy to my life. I hope that you have someone that has done that for you or you have had the opportunity to do that for someone else to feel the joy.
One of my best friends had a birthday and I asked her if I could take her out to lunch, she said yes and we went. I was so excited because it was a beautiful day in Phoenix and she wanted to go to the same place we went a year ago, Oregano’s. The conversation and energy was so upbeat and fun. We laughed and voiced our joy for life. At one point I shared some inner truths and was able to be vulnerable with her.

Secret #1: Remember Joy
On social media, at events, and in videos, I am always upbeat. Before going to a party, or even the grocery store, I take a few seconds to smile, breathe, and laugh! One of my fondest childhood memories is waiting for my dad to play basketball in our driveway. I looked forward to these moments with enthusiasm. It was a special time between my dad and I. I connect to these joyful experiences from my youth even today.
