I believe life is about joy, feeling it, seeing it, allowing it in your every day of life. Joy is more than happiness, it goes beyond the mind, it touches your heart, spirit and center of self. So how do you Uncover your joy? Here are 5 tips on how to do so:

1. Listen to your heart
You are the only one who knows what fills you up. Your family and friends may think you???d be great at something that really doesn???t float your boat. If you are to live a fulfilled and joyous life then doing those things your inner self really desires to do is key. Stop living by other people???s expectations and start listening to yourself.

2. Be open to change
Accommodating change can be hard as it often means leaving your comfort zone for a totally different experience. Even though it may not initially feel good it offers a chance to grow and become a better version of yourself. Secondly change is the most consistent thing in life so rather than fight it, prepare for it and be ready to emotionally show (yourself )up for the experience.

3. Do things you love
Engaging in activities you are passionate about is important for a blissful life experience. So start doing things that put a smile on your face and dedicate your energies to that. Maybe you can???t skydive everyday or take vacations every season, but as long as you get to do the things you love often you will find greater happiness and joy. A journey driven by passion and love leads to bigger and greater achievements of our hearts deepest desires.

4. Hold onto your values??
What do you believe in? What do you find to be true? What do you value? Over time, the more you honor what you believe in the better you will feel about yourself. Endeavour to respect yourself and your believes and avoid putting yourself in situations that will cause you to compromise your values.

5. Share the Joy
Giving a helping hand to those around you is one sure way to Uncover joy not just for you but for those around you. You can be a source of inspiration and motivation to people around you by planting seeds of joy and happiness in their lives. Plus there is something magical about making someone smile, it fills you up inside and radiates a positive energy back into your life.

You are the driver of your own life and so as you journey through it, you have the power to choose which paths to take and which people to allow into your life and what will influence you. Whatever you decide remember you have the power to Uncover Your joy.
