The Power of a Strong WHY

screen-shot-2016-12-22-at-6-40-58-pmAs 2016 comes to a close, I found myself flipping through one of my journals, and fortuitously came across a “Why Statement” that I wrote in spring of 2015.

I wrote it to help direct my thoughts and actions in a way that would be inspired and inner driven. Here it is:

A world where our hearts and souls are free to thrive, where compassion and connection are the norm, and where we naturally bring out the best in ourselves and in each other.

In the fall of 2015, Joy-Based Living emerged. A year later, the JBL Beginner’s Guide launched on kickstarter. Our founding community is gathering regularly, having conscious conversations, and developing meaningful relationships that will likely last for many years to come.

Thank you for standing with me in developing this dream and helping it become a reality. I love my WHY and I love that you’re here creating it with me! It’s for ALL OF US!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

With love,

  1. Re: Your “WHY” statement… It’s such a simple, elegant & inspiring description of the world I (and countless others, I’m sure) envision as “where I want to live”… And I see & feel it more each day I live the qualities I know we ALL have in our hearts and souls already, those being naturally enlivened by Joy-Based Living. God bless you & Joy-Based Living, Debbie! Happy Holidays, indeed! 🙂
