Welcome To Your Weekly Dose Of Joy
Welcome my Soulful Friend,
I don’t know about you, but I am ready to pull out my warm-weather clothes and head to the beach for some sun!!
While many of us are in loving relationships, this is the month when some may feel alone or longing for a partner or a more profound friendship.
In this week’s [JJJ] Julie’s Joyful JOLT, we will focus on feeling loved regardless of your current relationship status. Because it only truly matters how you think of yourself that will attract the perfect partner, friendships, or business relationships.
Let’s get started!
I’m feeling a bit alone today.
I am noticing that I’m focusing on what I don’t have.
I am feeling a bit “less than” others at the moment.
I feel that I could be happier with more meaningful relationships.
I do know I have some wonderful friends and business associates.
I do know that I have family & friends that care about me.
I know I shouldn’t pay so...
Good morning soulful friend,
It was October 2020, when we received the news that my ex-husband (my children's father) had taken his own life! It was also the same month that I had internally decided to step away from the business I had built for 25 years and mentor and coach a woman with whom I had a cultural and language barrier.
In stepped…..doubt…..fear…..lack of confidence.
A lightning bolt rocked our world with shock, disbelief, and questions. My family could barely step into this new reality.
Self-doubt questioned who was I to leave something that had "security, familiarity & reliability?"
Fear of what was next became a dark shadow that followed me around.
And then the most significant step was overcoming a sudden lack of confidence. But was I kidding myself? Life is impermanent, no job is secure, and businesses fail!
I know, I know… , this is supposed to be your Weekly Dose of JOY~~~
There is a happy note to follow.
Good morning, soulful friend,
If you’re new here, you may think, what the heck is a JOLT?
I came up with the idea after hearing Esther (Abraham) Hicks do what she calls. a “rampage of appreciation.” She also teaches not to be so specific when stuck on a “problem or a negative feeling.”
In this month’s webinar (Introduction to a Joyful CEO Life), I talked about how we all know people who tell everyone when something goes wrong. Then they tell more people, and then they tell the same people the same story AGAIN!!!! (Do you know anyone like that?)
This negative vibration is called the spotlight effect~ shining the light on the subject only brings more attention to it and keeps the energy alive! We DON’T want this, do we?
In this week’s JOLT (Joyfully Overcome Limited Thinking), I bring you a more general way around a subject that has been causing overwhelm, exhaustion, confusion, anxiety, or fear!
Let’s first acknowledge...
Hello beautiful, soulful friend,
It's President's Day - Are you taking today off from work? As an entrepreneur (speaking for myself), I LOVE what I do and whom I get to serve, so "taking a break" is sometimes something I force myself to do.
If you're like many, we were taught "hard work" gets you ahead and helps you succeed. I've learned the answer to success is to "take a break," which allows ease, flow & joy in my life. When you open up space, you enable terrific ideas to come to you, and then you want to take action, and people can feel your energy! Then "work" becomes easy!
So let’s debunk “hard work” with this week’s Julie’s Joyful JOLT!
I've been taught that hard work is how you succeed
I thought if I worked harder, I would be more successful
I thought if I put more hours in, it would pay off
What I got were exhaustion and few results
Now that I'm learning about changing my thoughts, I get it
I get that if I feel good first and take...
Hello beautiful, soulful friend,
When thinking about appreciation vs gratitude, I decided to google it and find out what was available to read on it.
By definition, appreciation involves the recognition, enjoyment, and full sensitive understanding of the value of something. Gratitude is the readiness to show or express appreciation to someone else for what was felt.

This week’s Julie’s Joyful JOLT is adapted from
Dana Wilde’s “RANT” on appreciation.
I know the benefits of feeling appreciation, and I love the feeling of it.
There are so many things in my life to appreciate, which makes it easy for me.
There are so many things in my life to appreciate, and they come to mind with ease.
There are so many things in my life to appreciate. and I know I am blessed.
I love thinking about each area of my life that is going...
Good morning beautiful soul,
Many of you have attended my “Introduction to a Joyful CEO Life” webinars and have heard me talk about taking a Joy Break.
This week I’m taking a break from the JJJ - Julie’s Joyful Jolt and bringing you information on why taking a Joy Break two or more throughout your day is so vital to your mental health.
Did you know that studies show after 90 minutes, your brain will begin to take a break?
You will begin to lose focus and become fatigued, and your mind will begin to wander.
So give your brain a break several times a day because:
1. The part of the brain responsible for decision-making and judgment works creatively when the brain is quiet.
2. Moments of insight occur when the brain unwinds.
3. Multi-tasking actually slows down thinking and output, which impacts productivity.
4. A break can help to refocus your...
Happy Monday, Soulful Friend!
In last week’s JOLT, I talked about overwhelm and what to do when you don’t feel like taking action.
It’s the time of year people tend to feel overwhelmed, overloaded, and over-committed. What should I do first, and how will it all get done?
Here’s where I can help.
The JOYFUL CEO LIFE program was designed to help women entrepreneurs take their life and business from Confusion - Exhaustion - and Overwhelm (overloaded, over-committed) to having more Clarity - Energy (and excitement), and Overflow of Abundance!!
[Read at the end to get more information about this.]
Now let’s start creating positive-flowing statements to have more clarity and less stress with this week’s JJJ-Julie’s Joyful Jolt!
Read out loud and as often as needed!
In the past, this time of year has been stressful
I’m taking a stand this year to have a new outcome
I’m taking time to write down what my priorities are
Good morning beautiful soul,
As we are in the throes of coming out of the holiday season, you may feel overwhelmed. I know I need to work on this daily.
I created Julie's Joyful JOLT to have a simple tool to bring more joy, ease & flow in my life and help others do the same.
As one of my founding readers of this Weekly Dose of JOY newsletter, you can ask me to create a personalized JOLT just for you! Reply if you'd enjoy that!
Lately, I've been saying to myself, "I don't feel like it,"….. several times. Not sure why I'm feeling this way. It's time to have a different mindset and create a JOLT to guide you through this uncomfortable feeling.
