JOY in the Bucket List

Good morning, beautiful!

This morning, I wanted to share a piece of an email I subscribe to; one of my mentors, Dana Wilde, has been a positive inspiration to me for years! She exudes “JOY” and happiness. That is why you subscribed to this Weekly Dose of Joy, right? You’ll find it below my JOLT.

Continuing my theme of the most often heard and said word, “BUSY,” let’s tackle this monster together so we can live a life entirely of ease, calm & JOY!

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

I’d love to have more JOY in my life
I’m pretty satisfied most of the time
I’d still like to feel more JOY
I should be thankful and grateful for what I have
I’d still like to feel more fulfilled
I have a pretty good life
I’d still like to have a better life
I feel pretty happy most of the time
I’d like to have more time to do more of what I love
I find myself saying, “I don’t have the time.”
I find myself...

Did your team win?

Happy Monday Morning!

Did you catch the big game? If you're anything like me, the thrill of cheering for your team can be both exhilarating and heart-wrenching, depending on the outcome.

Hailing from a town just outside Buffalo, NY, I've witnessed firsthand the highs and lows of sports fandom. I remember when our Buffalo Bills made it to the Super Bowl four years in a row. It was an electrifying time for our community, but unfortunately, each year ended in disappointment. The pain of those losses lingered long after the final whistle blew, leaving us with a case of the dreaded Monday blues.

Reflecting on those days, I can't help but draw parallels to the challenges many women business owners face today. Just like our beloved Bills, they pour their hearts and souls into their endeavors, tirelessly striving to "make things happen." But despite their best efforts, success seems elusive.

And that brings me to this week's

Happy Heavenly Birthday, Dad

Hello gorgeous!

I want to share a little history in the month of celebrating President's Day, Mardi Gras, Black History Month, Valentine's Day, and Ash Wednesday. My father would be 110 today. He passed away in 2009 at the age of 95 on my son's birthday. We honestly didn't think he would last more than a year after my mom passed in 1992. But he had a purpose, and that was his grandchildren. They brought him JOY.  

He also enjoyed golfing, sitting outside daily soaking up the sunshine (even in Buffalo, NY, in winter), and smoking a big cigar. (It's not my favorite, but sometimes I smell it and think of him.) This was his joy.

"Whenever I visited him, he never failed to extend his generosity, whether it was the $20 he had won at the horse races or a generous gift of $100. He offered it without strings attached, expressing that witnessing our enjoyment brought him immense joy. His only wish was to be present and share in the pleasure as we...

Transform exhaustion into energy! 

Happy Monday!

Mostly, women are the ones who question themselves the most. Have you heard a man say, “I don’t know what to do?” “What do you think I should do?” “I’m so confused, and I keep going back and forth.” a BIG NO

This week’s JOLT - (my method of Joyfully Overcoming Limited Thinking) focuses on when you have a vision for where you are going; even if it’s just a feeling or a nudge, do not question it. Just keep with it long enough for it to be revealed to you.

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

I often ask myself what it is I truly desire
Do I really even know
What would I really love to do
What is it that I am here on Earth to do
What is my real heart’s desire
What would I love
What brings me the most JOY
I love being (insert) of service
I love (insert yours) sharing what I have learned
I love guiding people to their true calling
I love knowing that I DO have a purpose
I love...

Good morning beautiful,

We are halfway through the first month of the year! Time flies, as they say!
So let this weekly dose of joy be your sign to take some BOLD action. 

Do you know what is holding you back from living the life that you would genuinely love? Fear? (False Evidence Appearing Real) Judgment from others (Does other people’s opinions of you really matter?) 

Playing the “B-U-S-Y” card? (This is what Warren Buffet thinks about that: ‘Busy is the new stupid.’) YIKESThat doesn’t feel good.

2024 - The Year of More - The Year to Soar - The Year I will strengthen my core.
What if we focus on the number “24”? 
The day - not the year. Would that remove worry, anxiety, and fear of what tomorrow will bring and can I get it all done?

Let’s bust the “I don’t have time; I’m too busy” myth with

Do you have a trust issue?

After conducting some recent market research, I discovered that a common obstacle was women needing to be more trusting and trusting themselves.

Does this resonate with you?

Several women wanted change in their lives but didn’t seek support because they didn’t trust themselves to do the work.  

This time of year, many set intentions, New Year’s resolutions, and promises to themselves. Several weeks in, the feeling wanes, and we slip back into the old routine and way of doing things.

You want to believe you can change.
You want to trust yourself to follow through.
You want to know you are going to do it this time.

But do you believe it? Will it stick this time?

I’d love to offer some reframing of this limited belief so you can live a life full of JOY, ease & abundance. You don’t have to do this entrepreneurial journey alone. Try this below.

Happy 2024!

WoW! This last year flew by so fast; did it for you, too? 

Please share your most significant successes with me so I can celebrate with you.
I promise to respond to each one of you!

I pick a word or phrase to kick off each year. Earlier this year, I said I was already using Simplify to Amplify and would use it in 2024. I will keep that in mind as I apply the less is more philosophy and focus on what is most important.

Taking time to reflect these last few weeks has also helped me to be more intentional. I am adding FOCUS (Follow One Course Until Successful) and CONSISTENCY to my mantra as this will create a new habit that I can rinse and repeat ~~

I like how it feels to create a Consistent FLOW~  

We are starting the year without a JOLT, but I am sharing some of my favorite affirmations.  

If you are new to my community, I designed the JOLT (Joyfully Overcoming Limited Thinking) to JOLT myself into a more positive mindset.

Enjoy these...

Merriest of Christmases to You

Peaceful morning to you!

As I am preparing this little note of JOY, I’m thinking of the magic of this time of year. The weather is changing a bit here in California, so we can make a fire inside and spend more time with family & friends. 

One of my mentors said, “You need to slow down to speed up.”  Taking time to be in the present moment takes work because we are wired into the hustle culture of doing something.

So today, I am giving you permission to slow down, be present with those you spend time with this week, and breathe!

Let’s do this!

I’m working on being present more 
I’m learning to be more aware of the person I’m talking with
I’m slowing down to listen to learn, not to speak next
It is taking some practice
I like the feeling of not rushing
I like the feel of slowing down
I like knowing that slowing down doesn’t stop abundance from flowing
I like knowing I’m not the one...

Happy Holidays, Soulful Friend,

A recent email I subscribed to pointed out how dangerous it is to "just be grateful" for what you have. (Mary Morrissey~my mentor's mentor).

I resonated when she said she would complain about the outdated cabinets and countertops to her parents and how they would remind her to be grateful she had a kitchen and not to compare theirs to others. 

(If you are close to me, you know I often do this, too. 

My dream kitchen has been on my vision board/document for some time. 

YOU will see me have this…one day!)

Bob Proctor said, "Always be grateful, and never be satisfied.”

Do you ever say to yourself, "It must be nice" or "One day I'll have that" when you see:

Someone you know buy a new outfit without looking at the price tag?

Someone you know always vacationing at beautiful destinations?

Someone you know seems to have everything drop in their lap?

Being grateful for everything: the trees, the flowers, our friends, our car,...

Hi, Beautiful Soul,

As we are in the season of Hanukkah and Christmas, I always appreciate reminders that the holidays        do not have to be stressful.

Let’s remember the true meaning ~ not reaching year-end goals and hitting our numbers—
Joy, Peace & Love. 

Forget the hustle, the shopping lists, and the events we are hosting or attending, and escape with me for a few moments. 

Take your Joy Break now……

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

I’m taking a break 
I deserve a break
I know it’s ok to slow down
I know I’ll be ok when I pause
The Universe, My Source, God, has my back
The world won’t stop if I take some time for myself 
When I take a break, I’m in the flow
When I have peace, calm, and Joy, more energy flows
I like the peace I feel when I take breaks
It feels good to create space
It feels good not to be rushed
It feels good to be in the moment
I’m closing eyes and taking a few deep...

Good, glorious morning, my friend,

Habits start with a tiny move. Or, as my last week’s newsletter talked about, the power of a decision. Google says “habit” is a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.

“They” say it takes 66 days, to be exact, to have a new habit stick. So, by Feb. 8, you can expect to see your results forming and taking shape if you start today. Of course, for some, it will be sooner if you work on keeping it in front of you several times during the day.

Let me help you get started.

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

 

I am ready to make a change
I am really ready this time
I am really serious
I know in the past I’ve said this and didn’t stick with it
I know it’s hard to create a new habit or get rid of an old one
I know I can do it with a commitment
I know I can do it with a system
I know I can set timers to remind me to be aware
I know I can create an affirmation and say it 3 x a day...

Happy Monday, Soulful Friend,

Did you know that the energy of indecision carries its own unique frequency? It's a fascinating aspect of the universe's intricate dance. When positive affirmations lack alignment with purpose and action, it's like sending a letter without a clear address—our dreams might not reach their intended destination.

Let's take a moment to harmonize our intentions and actions, 
creating a symphony that resonates with the universe, 
bringing our dreams to life! 

The secret lies in making a conscious decision. Picture this: 
"I would LOVE this!" Set your intentions free, 
detached from the 'how,' and watch the magical unfoldings 
orchestrated by the universe.

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

If I know that the power of decision is so important…
What will I decide for today?
I will decide to state with clarity what I truly desire.
I will decide to select images of what that would look like.
I will decide to keep the images close by...
